It’s a Christmas Card

With one day to go and still so much left to do, I must admit I  feel like a child waiting anxiously  for Santa. I actually become a santa helper on Christmas Eve Day. Sydney and I run all around Denver and hand out our homemade goodies to all the people who are special to us. I am sure that there are some of the same people in your life, the ones we tend to take for granted. I am speaking of the the postman,UPS driver (I know mine), the hairdresser, esthetician, the group of men and women who graciously pick up our trash, and maybe your favorite restaurant server. It is amazing how a...

The DF birthday week has reached it’s conclusion, DF will finally have his “Boston Cream Pie.” The celebration week started with a scrumptious Chocolate Genoise Cake with a Raspberry Crème Fraiche filling covered in a Marshmallow Meringue Frosting and completely glazed with a Shiny Chocolate Ganche. DF has been waiting an entire year for his Boston Cream Pie, though he has yet to “meet” a cake he does not like, Boston Cream Pie is his favorite. I actually thought this cake would fit on this cake plate, I guess the joke is on me! The traditional Omni Parker...

For the last 23 years my family has had a wondrous tradition: each member of our family has a week of celebrating his or her birthday, (we refer to this tradition as “BIRTHDAY WEEK”). The actually story behind this fabulous tradition started with a blunder belonging to my husband, DF. Without trying to bore you, the story goes like this: the first birthday of mine after my husband and I began living together (we were not married yet) happened to fall on a softball game my husband’s team was playing. Instead of just asking if he could take me to dinner the next night, he...
