April Fooling

Welcome to April. I hope everyone had a great Easter. Mine was wonderful. It was a VERY low key holiday. My Mother is still in Florida. My sister and her daughters went down to see my Mom and my Florida sister. My youngest sister was just happy doing nothing. MY Husband was all for a stress less day. And I was in total agreement. I did make a delicious ham with a fabulous glaze. It was wonderful new recipe.

Over the weekend, my friend and I did some retail and lunch therapy. One of our first stops was Trader Joe's. Always a wealth of fun and delicious items. My cat Black Cherry also likes Trader Joe's (bag).

totally hanging out

My Sweets and Treats business has been taking off. I have had a job every weekend. I am still catering, and working a day job. Life has been a bit crazy. But I am loving it. My business cards look fantastic. The web site is under construction, and with the help of many friends and family, we are marketing the crap out of this business adventure.

I have been making cakes, cupcakes, cookies and bars. And I have done several seasonal items. For Easter, I made a few Carrot Cakes. Pretty Easter Cupcakes and delicious Banana breads. There are so many special occasions coming up. I look forward to trying new recipes that will make these events more memorable.

I have been invited to a Healthy Eating Event. I found some Gluten Free Recipes and Lighter and Healthier Recipes. The challenges we face everyday trying to eat healthy. So many people have dietary restrictions.

Someday's I feel like crawling into a bag, and not coming out. But I realize the challenges we are faced with and try to move forward.  I am so excited about the launching of my Sweets business. I know it will be loads of hard work, but this is something I really want to do. And Life is to short for bad Pastry.


  1. Love your cat! Ours likes to do the same thing. Sounds like your Sweets business is taking off. Good luck with that! I hope you do well.

    1. thank you. You are my FIRST comment. I am very happy in such a weird way. Thank you
