Easy Guacamole

So I never went out of my way to eat guacamole in the past. When I first started experiencing in the kitchen I tried to make it, but I never loved it enough to want to make it again. Last summer we spent some time in Florida and we finally got to try popular burrito place […]

Melting Chocolate

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a member of the West island cake club. It’s a local non-profit club for cake decorators! I joined in November 2013, and this year I was on the executive board as a part of the workshop team. I’ve learned a lot throughout a short period with them. […]
