On Vacation...

Starting tomorrow, I will be out of the country for 2 weeks.  I will be on vacation with my family in Vietnam.  It will definitely be an adventure, to say the least.  None of my siblings and I have ever been to Vietnam, and my Dad has not been back since he escaped in 1979.  I am not sure what to expect and am actually quite nervous about going.... I am too American to "fit in" there.

I will spare you my nervous blabbering, and just want to let you all know that I will be temporarily unreachable.  I will be returning to the States October 15th , and I will be in full swing with orders once I get back!

Jack & Charlie - Love them!
Now time for me to share a super cute picture of my puppy; who is not really a puppy anymore but he will always be "my puppy" if you know what I mean. I love my little Charlie! Because I will be out of the country for two weeks, I had to leave my puppy with somebody and who better than stepdad (aka the bf)?!  Of course that also means quality time with big stepbrother, Jack.  So I made the drive up to Austin this past weekend to spend time with the bf and then to leave my puppy with his stepdad.  I was very sad to leave the little guy, after all I have not spent this much time away from him, ever.

A year & a half of seeing this cute face almost everyday made it hard to know that I would not see him for 3 weeks... oh my precious puppy.... But I know he is in good hands and will not even know I am gone.  Of course he will be too busy having fun with Jack to notice.  I just hope that 3 weeks of living in a bachelor pad with two other men doesn't make him forget all the manners that I taught him, or pick up any bad habits like drinking out of the toilet...   I will miss my 3 boys while I am gone :(

And now a youtube video introduced to me by my brother and in tribute to my puppy, Charlie!

Anybody ever head of this?!?  Well the other day I was in the break room at work getting water and saw three bags of cream colored mush... Now I had seen these bags several weeks back and didn't pay much attention to them, but these strange looking bags were back, so I decided to stop and read the paper attached to them and saw "Amish Friendship Bread" with strange instructions like "Mush the Bag."

Well still not really sure what the bag of goo was, I went back to Google, and read up on it.  It is similar to a chain letter, in the sense that once you get it, you must pass 3 more along.  So this bag of mush is really an active yeast mixture that is supposedly passed down from generation to generation steaming only from the Amish. Now I don't know how true this is, but it has definitely been circulating around my office for a month or so now.  Even after reading of…

Pandan Coconut Ice Cream

Pandan, have you ever heard of it? Growing up, I ate many sweets flavored with Pandan, although I didn't really learn what it was until my early 20s. It is a common flavor used in Southeast Asian desserts, similarly to how Vanilla is used in most American baked goods. If you have ever been into an Asian bakery and seen bright green cakes and such, that gorgeous green hue is attributable to Pandan. I ate many green desserts as a child but honestly never knew what that distinct flavor was and always just thought the green color was from food coloring to make things more exciting.

However, in my adult years I started to see trendy Asian restaurants serving Pandan flavored desserts, and not until then did I realize I had been eating Pandan my whole life. My sister and I started to become obsessed with ordering beignets with pandan ice cream at one of our local sushi restaurants in Houston. Now that I live in Austin, I don't get to enjoy those delicious pillowy beignets and ice cre…

Princess Glass Slipper Cookies

Every princess needs her own pair of glass slippers. One that fits perfect just for her. One that sparkles and shines. One that tells the world "I'm a Princess!"

I was asked to make little Princess Shayne some glass slipper cookies for her birthday party. Little glass slippers for all of her friends to take home, because every good princess knows how to share. All the girls loved how shiny and sparkly the cookies were. That is all thanks to my silver sanding sugar and then for that final touch of glam, I topped them off with a dash of edible glitter.

Apparently Princess Shayne only agreed to have a birthday party because Mom promised her there would be presents... Oh such a princess! Hope you had a lovely birthday Shayne!
