Thank you for being patient with me the last week while posts were a little spotty. I was dealing with a death in the family, which happens to send your everyday life into chaos – as if such a time isn’t hard enough as is. But like I promised, I am getting back into our regular routine, and you can expect next week to be back to normal and chock-full of posts.
In case life has put you a bit behind on posts as well, let’s review, shall we?
- Caramel Mocha Brownie Batter Truffles
- Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Potato Skins
- S’mores Swirl Bark
- Smart Cookie Shopping 51
In the midst of this crazy week, it was also time for the re-launch of a new release of Les Mills BODYSTEP at my gym. That means new moves and new music, and of course, a theme. This launch’s theme was chosen by one of our members: a pajama party.

We had dinner with all our friends and family. Naturally, I made him an original Smart Cookie cake with lemon cake and vanilla buttercream, per his request. The design, however, was a surprise. Ryan and I are obsessed with corgis and plan to adopt one some day, which resulted in this too-cute corgi cake:
Directions are coming this week on the blog. In the meantime, please drool over this awesome eggplant parmesan I enjoyed for dinner from Dominick’s in Syracuse. Yum!
