Easter Nests

How is it Easter already?? Time is flying by this year. I haven’t even dyed any eggs yet! Hopefully I’ll have some time to squeeze in a fun easter egg sesh before it’s too late. If nothing else though, I simply cannot let this time of year come and go without eating copious amounts of deviled eggs. (hint, hint…mom) Crossing my fingers. ;)

Kansas City Flowers, Photos & a Baby

It has long been a dream of mine to work in a flower shop. I imagine spending the day surrounded by wonderful smells and the feeling of nature (sans spiders and snakes) and playing with white roses and baby’s breath. Yesss, that sounds pretty ideal to me. But just for like a day. Definitely not on February 13th or near a holiday or a day when something sad happens the requires sad flowers. Just on a normal, slow day when you can relax and be creative. Dreamy, right?! Well, with the help of a couple wonderful ladies, I got to play pretend for a day and it was real.

We all still have a few more days until feeling like we should have followed the new years resolution diet trend… right?

Nonna’s Christmas Cookies

Of all the special treats that Christmas time brings, my grandmothers fig cookie recipe is one that, no matter what, my home will never go without. A typical sicilian holiday tradition, these cookies are far from the usual festive, iced sugar cookie. Sicilian Fig Cookies, or Cucidati, somewhat resemble what most might think of as a fig newton… but like ten times better ;)
