I was hanging out on Pinterest the other day looking for ideas for Easter decorating and got inspired by the pretty sugar cookies out there. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE pretty inspirations and just had to make them right then. I was surprised how easy they are to make! The frosting was a challenge and definitely needs some improvement but overall I think they look decent for a first timer. We took them to the Easter party and they were such a hit. I’ll be making them again and will share the recipe once I get it perfected.
So, here they are, my first ever Sugar Cookies!
I’m obsessed with making soups – they are so easy to make. And for me, there is nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of soup! I love taking advantage of seasonal ingredients, some of my winter favorites are butternut squash, chanterelles, potatoes and asparagus. I really enjoy chunky soups and I always crave chowders. Unfortunately I’ve had some oral sugery done earlier this week and liquid diet is on the menu for the next few days. I’ve been looking for some simple, creamy soup recipes and here are few delicious looking ones found on Pinterest. Yummy…

Few months ago I happened upon Mimi Thorisson’s amazing food blog called Manger and have been sucked into her beautiful life ever since. Mimi, her husband Oddur, their four kids and 19 dogs live in a picturesque country estate in Médoc, France. I couldn’t help but fell in love with the photographs of her exquisitely beautiful dishes set against carerra and antique china, her darling children and cute little dogs. Her blog is one of my favorite food blogs. Recently she revealed her new logo and updated her blog. And I absolutely love it! The new logo is so beautiful. Inspired by a beautiful ceiling wreath from a nearby château in ruins discovered by Mimi. It features lovely florals and the profile of her beloved fox terrier. And no wonder I fell in love with it. The new logo and icons were illustrated by the wonderfully talented Anna Bond from Rifle Paper Co! I’ve been a fan of Anna’s work for ages. Isn’t this lovely?
