my birthday.

Sunday, July 26

My wonderful took me to Bonefish Grill for my birthday. I had never been their before and I absolutely loved it! For an appetizer we ordered calamari. I have never had squid or octupus before, but I am so glad I tried it! It was delicious! I ordered salmon with mango salsa. He got shrimp and sea scallops. Both were tasty!! It was a great night!


happy birthday to me.

My YUMO birthday cake! No, I didn't make it. I wish I had. And some day I will make cakes like this AND more amazing cakes! But just for this one special time =), I relied on yummy Coldstone Creamery!!


.apple turnovers.

Saturday, July 25

Over the past couple years I have learned that with some things, improvising works wonderfully. And with other things...not so much.
Being a broke college student, I had to go the cheap route and improvise while baking these apple turnovers for my family. As you can see, they didn't turn out so great. But my family loved them anyway!!
