She Wants To Travel, Far and Wide...

Traveling.
The concept is so exciting.
A wonderfully satisfying dream. 
To think one day I will see this:

Paris

paris

 See the World!
 See it All. 
But for now,
I will settle for a cup of Starbucks
 in Washington DC.




View from our hotel room in DC
Of course, this was past all the construction.
(I had to zoom just a bit ;) )



I have a growing list of places to go,
and things to see.
So...


If only Paris was just a little closer to PA....

You Win Some, You Lose Some...


VALENTINES DAY DINNER!



This years Valentines Day dinner 
was created by yours truely :)

Mom handed it over to me
It all went pretty well
other than......

The cake.

I made an angel food cake 
that came out of the pan PERFECTLY...
then it was smothered in whipped cream.
But halfway through the cake, 

I ran out of whipped cream.

Being a blonde, 
and obviously not thinking clearly,
I grabbed the bottle of Redi-whip from the fridge 
and went crazy finishing the cake.
Added some sprinkles,
and set it on our indoor porch
(it is really cold in there, so we tend to keep things "refrigerated" out there...)

Then, I went on to other parts of my day.
A few minutes had passed, 
and I looked out to the porch again.....

THE REDI-WHIP WAS 
FALLING OFF THE CAKE!

A big blob was laying on the floor.
The cream was making the cake soggy.

And because the cake was soggy,
it started to cave in...
What to do?

MAKE A TRIFLE!

sure... 
It didn't look as pretty.
And I love pretty looking things.
But all worked out.
Just a bit differently than planned...

Our dinner was a success. 


Yesterday, It went up to almost 50 degrees.
Our dog, Belle, wanted outside.
When I went to check on her,
This is how I found her.
Lounging in the sun :)


Made some DELICIOUS oatmeal.
Craisins and apples with cinnamon and brown sugar <3 
YUM!


Enjoy the weekend. 
We are going to DC. 
Defiantly be posting pics on here :) :) 
See ya later.

Another Baking Endeavor

Crepe Cake!
What a GENIUS idea! 
Whoever came up with it should be given
 some very important award.
I saw a picture of one on Pintrest

I'm pretty sure the picture was from "high-end bakery" 
But a light bulb went off that said
"THAT LOOKS EASY!"

AND IT WAS!!
3 ingredients, not much time invested, and deliciousness.


Get either store bought or homemade crepes, 


Some thin sliced strawberries,


and whipping cream.
(Look and that lovely vintage packaging from Traders Joe's)


Lay the first crepe on a cake stand or plate 


Put some whipped cream on that crepe


Layer with strawberries.
Continue to follow those steps until all your crepes are used
( Number of crepes doesn't matter,
Probably no less than 8)


Top with whipped cream and some more strawberries.
Than sprinkle on powdered sugar
(optional of course : ) 

Oh how delicious it was!
HOW WONDERFULLY DELICIOUS.
My family loved it. 
We started brainstorming other topping combos.

Bananas and peanut butter
Pb&J
Granola and fruit
Blueberry
EVEN EGG AND SAUSAGE! 

Have a wonderful Monday!
