Food, Baking & Excitement
Hey there and welcome to Foodie Friday!! This week went by very quickly of me - how about you?
Foodie Friday Feature...
Today I'm up at bat for Foodie Friday and I featured one of my all-time favorite New York restaurants, Becco. I recently at here with my sister, who, like Tanya and I, LOVES to eat, and what a meal we had!!! CLICK HERE to read all about it!
Christmas Season "To Do" Day 5...
What better thing to do than bake during this festive time! That's exactly what I'll be doing tonight. Denise volunteered to bake cookies for the school's "Breakfast with Santa" tomorrow, so we decided to make a fun, girls' night out of it.
No kids, no husbands - just the girls, some wine, and lots of cookie batter!
I'm hopeful that we can shake things up a bit and make some extras for ourselves.
I have been baking for Christmas for as long as I can remember! Cookies always as well Italian specialties passed down from my grandmother.
Here are my faves along with some recipes for your baking pleasure!!!
* Sugar Cookies
* Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti
* Pecan Tassies
Please give us some feedback if you enjoy these recipes!!! I won't lie - my favorites are the Pecan Tassies!!
Very Productive Week
Tanya and I had a VERY productive day with "Cousins Trip" planning. We have LOTS to update you with next Travelin' Tuesday, as well as some new pages of trip itineraries for these upcoming trips.
Exciting Tweets for Travelin' Cousins!!!
This past Monday, I featured a story about the new Broadway musical, Honeymoon in Vegas, starring Tony Danza.
If you missed it, CLICK HERE. Well, we were thrilled to see that it was Favorited and Re-Tweeted on Twitter by some of the cast members, the musical director, Jason Robert Brown and even Tony Danza himself!!! It doesn't get much cooler than this!
Hope your Friday is great and remember to eat some food you love!!!
Another Busy Day!
Hope that everyone has had a pleasant and productive week. And that everyone is looking forward to a lovely weekend! Any fun plans??
Back in SoCal for December...
I returned back to Orange County on Tuesday of this past week; it rained and poured straight through Wednesday (which is very RARE), and I loved every minute of it and enjoyed listening to every rain drop - my all time favorite sound!
The week was also quite productive which I am thrilled about, and today will be no different!
I have lots of shopping to do in order to prepare and cook the feasts that I have planned!
Plus I have to take Cosette to go see Star.
The Love of Food...
Tomorrow is a big day at our house, and every big day always deserves a BIG MEAL!
I'll fill you in on everything tomorrow..
Sunday, is when we are having Dominic's west coast birthday celebration - and everyone who knows Dominic KNOWS that this kid's whole life revolves around food!
So he's put in his requests and on Sunday I'll put on my apron and chefs hat and fulfill this kids breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert wishes!
Trips, Trips, and more Trips...
Yesterday, Elisa and I had much travel discussion, and we had settled on going round trip into Prague, rather than doing an open-jaw ticket for our Eastern Europe by Rail Trip.
I'm now all booked and feel great about it!
The outbound flight was booked on Wednesday, and in inbound flight booked yesterday.
Totally stoked that the trip is piecing together!
We also discussed the rest of our 'Cousin Trips' that will be taking place through the summer of 2015.
Other stays were booked, and our itineraries started in motion. All will be revealed, and we will be sharing our plans and even a few brand new upcoming trip pages on Travelin' Tuesday.
Mark your calendars!!!
Tonight will be the kick off for the Christmas show season for the kids and their International Peace Choir. The kids will be singing and dancing at the Lakewood Annual Christmas Tree Lighting.
Maybe we'll even be able to squeeze in a little tea time, before heading back home and calling it a wrap!
Be sure to read all about Foodie Friday in Elisa's delicious meal at Becco!
Catch you back here tomorrow for some more fun!
Have a Great one,
