Fab Friday!

Dozen Wicked Mint Brownies

I found a site through GG called and they do indeed carry some fab items that are unique, bold and oh-so-interesting. I'm drawn to vintage styles and quirky, kitschy items with a sense of humor and the site certainly didn't disappoint.  I thought I would share some of my favorite finds for the kitchen, home and belly so today's post will be chock full of images but not much more. Still, I hope you'll enjoy looking at the pics and have a totally fab Friday!

Tommy Bahama Trees

I created instant trees yesterday in the form of these Tommy Bahama umbrellas.  I admit, as a landscape designer, my backyard is looking pretty bare.  I promise you, in time it will transform.  But for now, baby steps.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

I don't often bake at night but tonight, the fam and I were craving something sweet for dessert. Something chewy, yet crunchy and decadent. One of the kids yelled out "chocolate chip cookies!" I remembered a recipe that I had favorited on a few years back so with my Android tablet in hand, off into the kitchen I went.

Cheesy Bacon & Garlic Dog Treats

It's another doggie biscuit making Saturday. The last of the peanut butter doggie biscuits that I made a couple of weeks ago just got polished off so I needed to replenish the treat box. Now that I'm getting into the groove of baking dog treats at home, I don't think I'd be buying them from the pet store again. Not only are homemade dog treats inexpensive to make but they are also all natural and can be made fresh on an as-needed basis.

Chocolate Biscotti

Back in May of this year, there was a big hoo-hah about coffee being really good for you. The L.A. Times and the Huffington Post both reported that drinking at least one cup of coffee per day could increase your life span by 5 to 6%. Drink at least 3 cups and your life span increases by over 10%.

Spicy Japanese Cold Summer Noodles (Hiyashi Chuka)

We're sizzling in the U. S. of A. these days! Take a look at these temps across the board for this weekend. Lots of record-breaking 90 to 100 degree weather all over the map, including Southern California.

Lemon Cupcakes with Berries + Happy 4th!

Happy 4th everyone! Hope you had a nice cookout and celebration. As I write this, fireworks are still going off in the neighborhood. I guess the doggies will have to remain in hiding just a little while longer.

Kaleidoscope Dress

Sometimes, I just feel like blending in.  Last Saturday, I was invited to a swimming/children's party.  While I did not feel like swimming, I chose an outfit that I thought will blend in with my surroundings.  And by the way, I sewed this dress.

Easy Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

I'm surprised dog treats didn't make an appearance on our blog sooner. After all, I have two dogs and GG has one but I've always thought that making dog biscuits were more involving. Boy was I wrong! They couldn't be easier. After reading up on countless recipes for dog biscuits (some of which called for chicken livers, brewers yeast and some other ingredients that I didn't have on hand), I finally settled on a simple one that called for just a few ingredients and I had all of them in my pantry.
