I know my life is crazy and full of surprices but this is just… wow!

Life of Mila

About six years ago I was this total Youtube-nerd. I love music, like crazy, so I used to spend hours just to find new musicians and songs, new voices and styles. And there he was, this amazing boy who took my heart and stole it away. He could do nearly everything and he was good at it, not to mention his music and talent. Wow.. He had about 100 views top or something.  I couldn’t help to wonder “why”. I followed him, and everything he posted. This boy is now the most famous humanbeing on this planet, Justin Bieber.

And about two minutes ago, I found out that I AM GOING TO ONE OF HIS CONSERT HERE IN SWEDEN!! I knew he was coming here, but seriously you can imagine how HARD it is to get a ticket, so I didn’t get one. Hear me out.

I’m sitting in my…

This Weekend

One Stitch Two Stitch

my bf and I along with some friends decided to take a mini road trip down to the Keys on Saturday . . .

BurrsWe made an impromptu stop at Burr’s Berry Farm. They have a stand where you can buy freshly-picked strawberries and seasonal produce, along with homemade jams. Their strawberry milkshakes are yummy!



GlibertsWe made two stops, one to Alabama Jacks (sorry no pics!) and then here to Gilberts which is a huge Tiki bar right on the water.
DSC05224The view is pretty amazing here. I had a strawberry daiquiri, sat back and enjoyed the live music . . . very relaxing!
On Sunday, we went down to South Beach and had a nice stroll on the beach. The day was amazing – a clear blue sky and lovely sunshine. These are the times you know how lucky you are to be living down in south Florida! We…

White Chocolate Strawberry Pie and a Sunshine Award

The Home Heart

Welcome to Spring!

It doesn’t feel much like Spring, does it?

I heard that the weather is getting frisky all over the place. Here in NC we had snow flurries for several hours on the second day of Spring. Pretty wild. And the temp hasn’t gotten much better since. We’re keeping our fingers crossed over here that it warms up soon. I’m pretty sure that pesky groundhog has had his 6 weeks, right? Time for us to get some Spring-like weather going on over here.

Well, if you’re in need of some Spring like me, this pie should do the trick. It is as delectable as it looks – truly. And it was super easy to put together. So the next time you need a dessert or just a pick-me-up, this is the recipe for you.


White Chocolate Strawberry Pie

9-inch graham pie crust*

12 oz. cream cheese, softened

Snookie's Cakes

I can’t remember when I stumbled upon this recipe, just that it was tucked away in my binder, awaiting to be rediscovered.


I ended up tweaking the orignal Taste of HomeWonderful Candies Two Ways Recipe. I mean, come on, THREE POUNDS of confectioners sugar! Oh look, I think some of my teeth just ran away in fear.

Not that two pounds is all that much better.

Coffee and Walnut Caramel Cake

Sad Biscuit

Recipe #12

All things being equal, I am normally a very even tempered and forgiving evil cake genius.  However, there comes a moment in all our lives when someone pushes you too far.  And it’s at moments like that when you have no choice but to unleash your inner sassy black woman and say, “Oh no you didn’t!  It’s on now bitch!!!”

For me, this moment came just a few days ago when they announced the winner of this year’s Kit-Kat Chunky contest.  I was cheering my little black heart out for Kit-Kat Chunky Fudge to win and brought to bear all my instruments of gentle persuasion to try to make it so.  However, despite all of my threats and bribery and waterboarding, my wishes were ignored and Kit-Kat Chunky Mint was declared the champion.

I did warn people that there would be consequences if I didn’t get my…
