birthday girl + ping pong cake

 another birthday, another fun request for a birthday cake! my how my niece has grown up, even in a years time. love you, little lady!


one last fall post

 happy belated thanksgiving! we had a lovely thanksgiving with both of our families. extending into the weekend, were we saw about 10 wild turkeys strolling about.
 right before the holiday we got our wood burner fired up! we are now heating our house and water with just wood! we are beyond happy about this. the temperature inside these days is cozy- very warm ( just because we can)
lots of other exciting things happening. more to be shared in the next little while!

another update, being, we took down our falling down ceilings in the living room and dining room. we also demoed our attic, put up more insulation, got a new back door, leveled the floor in the laundry room and hung up some more gutters outside. it  has been a very productive season for us. jason being responsible for pretty much all of it!


Wedding Cake

here's a wedding cake i did this past weekend! pound cake with cream cheese frosting! everyone loves the cream cheese lately! it is so very tasty! 
i am off to do a cake decorating class for creative gifts, which is a part of peaceful living. my good friend works with them and thought her clients would really love cake decorating. i'm really excited for the opportunity!


hello november + creamy yam and sage pasta

 the leaves continue to be brilliant these days. the chill in the air has increased. and cooking in these parts has been a more frequent thing! not working four nights a week has revived my passion for making a little more labor intensive meals. i wouldn't have it any other way. my newest little dinner adventure was:

 yam pasta sauce:
 perfectly fall.
i had some left over from another meal, so i pureed the rest of the yams, heated it up, added cream, sage, nutmeg, salt and pepper and topped with parmesan cheese. so good!
