Sesame Bagels

Any kind of baking that involves yeast used to TERRIFY me. I know it may sound a bit silly, like how could a little powdery substance used to bake bread be scary? Well, I think it was more in the sense of the unknown, uncharted territory, the idea of having to be so exact in measuring and temperature, ultimately the fear of messing up. This concept can relate to our lives in many ways, the fear of taking chances, the fear of doing something unfamiliar to us, and of course the fear of failure.

Yup, I’ll take one of those with a warm cup of coffee, please and thank you. Continue reading “Blueberry Bagels”

To think it’s already the second I’m celebrating being called “Mom” (well not actually out loud- but I know she’s thinking it) is just simply amazing. I wake up each day so in love with this beautiful, happy, smart, inspiring, funny, full of energy, and loving little girl. Being her mom is the greatest gift ever. It’s kind of like nailing your dream job but even better. Continue reading “Strawberry Banana Bread Mini Loaves”
