Since yesterday was my birthday, this week I am telling you my three favorite indulgences, in no particular order.
#1. Starbucks venti iced peppermint white mocha with whip!
I didn't know until recently that you can get peppermint syrup all year round. This is my weekly cheat.
#2. Tiramisu - creamy, lady fingers dipped in espresso. Who wouldn't love this yummy dessert?
#3. Chocolate Cream Pie - not chocolate pudding pie, no graham cracker crust no whipped topping. I honestly have never had a better chocolate cream pie than my own, its my grandmothers recipe. She shared it with me, my Mom and my Aunt and I think I am the reigning Chocolate Cream Pie DIVA. This pie takes time, love and patience... it isn't for the novice bakerl. Its a CREAM filling which requires about 20 minutes of constant stirring. On bottom is a flaky crust and on top and simple meringue. HEAVEN. My poor love, when we were first married this pie was just to rich for him. Now the two of us could devour one pie together in two days. My favorite time to eat it is the day after I make it for breakfast. I want to make one now... hmmmm
PLEASE in your comments share YOUR favorite indulgences.
Nothing much to report this week in the garden. Planted more seeds and a few more veggies.
As I said last week we live in base housing which I love, at our base housing is privatized and Lincoln provides really great lawn service, the only thing is that they come on Thursdays and for what ever reason didn't last week so our grass is super long. Well we are having a last minute BBQ tomorrow for my BIRTHDAY. YAY me, one year older. UGH. Anyway, the grass just won't make it til Thursday.
This weeks blog post is just a few pictures, two of MyLove cutting our grass so it is presentable and fun to frolic in tomorrow afternoon, one of my favorite pair of yard boots, and then the last one is of a dirty little garden fairy, isn't she beautiful???
I am a some what of Suzy Homemaker but not at all a perfect kind, its all about trial and error. I learn by doing. I love to cook and bake, garden and I am also a crafter/diy'er at heart. Check out my trial and errors over at
