My New Cake Ring!

I am so sorry, everyone. I haven't really been in blog-world lately and I can't explain why! 

All you need to know is that I'm back! And I have some delicious treats coming up just for you!

In the meantime, I ordered this lovely ring from Blanche & Lola!!

Amy, the creator of Blanche & Lola, not only was so sweet to me, but also created this gorgeous ring!! I absolutely love it, and I've never seen anything like this. 

I mean, it is so lifelike.

So I totally recommend going over to her website, Blanche & Lola, and checking out what she has or custom ordering something!!

Thanks, Amy!!

Smooches! xoxo

Bloghop: Ten on Tuesday

I'm doing a Blog Hop today, and since it's Tuesday, I'm doing Ten on Tuesday! Woo! So enjoy the 10 fun or boring things on my mind!!

An American friend of mine visited me this weekend from Scotland, and we had a nice time! We got our hair and nails done, which was nice! Except mine is a little too short and a little too blonde (I'm a brunette!), but hair grows and the blonde will fade! Plus it was only 25 pounds, so I can't complain. 

Wanna know what I cooked for her? I knew you'd say yes! Well, Saturday we cooked up some kebabs! My vegetarian ones had red and green peppers, onions, zucchini (courgette), and Quorn chicken fillets, yum! The non-vegetarian ones had chicken! I also made my Mini Spinach-Artichoke Puff Pastries! Big hit! Mr. Sweets asked me to make more to take with him to work! Love it!

I also made some delish Spinach and Ricotta Lasagne Rolls, which I will post this week! Along with green bean fries and some bread! Yum yum! 

Right now, someone is smoking outside and it is coming up through my window. Not cool, smoker! Anyone else hate the smell of smoke? Yuck!

Anyway. Back to this weekend. My friend and I also went to London! And guess what we had for dinner?? Chipotle!!! Yummm!!! Who else loves Chipotle as much as me? I get the vegetarian burrito with rice, sour cream, cheese, lettuce, and guacamole. What do you have on yours? 

We then caught Chicago The Musical, starring Christy Brinkley. Apparently she's famous and was Billy Joel's wife! I wasn't a fan of the show, but you might be! I hear the movie is better.

What am I baking this week? Well, I haven't a clue. Any suggestions? Mr. Sweets is off for a few weeks from work, so who am I going to give my baked goods to? Time to fatten up the neighbors! 

Have I told you that Mr. Sweets and I are getting married next summer? Well, now you know! So we are busy planning away all the fun, pink wedding stuff! Right now I need to make the invitations. Have I been busy researching food blogs instead? Guilty. Priorities, right? 
Have you heard of the show "Secrets of a Restaurant Chef"? If not, you need to find it ASAP. I *love* that show! The way she speaks and explains things, and how she gets excited over little things, makes me so happy. She is so passionate and so much fun! Check it out, she gives some great tips.

What is your favorite cooking or baking show? I love those competition shows, like Master Chef, Top Chef, that Food Network Challenge show, and other ones! But my fave? D.C. Cupcakes, for sure! Love them!

Well there you go, 10 things that were on my mind. I hope you enjoyed them and link up to It's A Crafty Life to share your Ten on Tuesday!
Smooches! xoxo
