Baking with little darlings is magical. Especially for them. My girls shriek in delight at the mention of an opportunity to ‘help’ in the kitchen.

Monsterously Delicious

It seems we’re making a habit of baking confectionery treats that are far too cute to consume. Luckily, somehow, we manage  to find the strength to in fact devour and lick our fingers as to not miss a single morsel. I suppose it’s part of the same barbaric practice of having a piñata that’s shaped as […]

A moment in time
