Flying High!

HAB 02

It’s been a moving and turbulent few weeks. Things are happening at lightening pace and it’s taking up a lot of energy and emotions to keep up! I am keeping the trusted camera at my side at all times just so that I can capture the moments. I’ll be going back when things have slowed down and sort out all the thoughts and feelings later.

Finally it’s here. One of the most fruity and luscious roundups this Spring. The Monthly Mingle theme this month was all about Spring Cakes. I called out to all of you to go out and get yourself some fresh fruit in season right now and join me in a celebration of cakes.

Fluffy Buckwheat Cottage Cheese Pancakes with a Touch of Thyme

It is my firm belief that mothers do not need one specific day to celebrate their being! Mother’s should be celebrated every day of the year. They should be praised and idealized for their love, sacrifices, inspiration, motivation and protection. But we do have a special day to celebrate the unconditional love of a woman who calls herself a Mother.

Rhubarb Spiced Coffee Cake

Winters are great as it brings along the wonderful spice aromas into my baking. Cardamom, cloves, nutmeg and allspice are common spices often used in Christmas cookies and cakes throughout the cooler months. However Spring and Summer are the best, because with these seasons comes the burst of sweet, juicy, tangy, succulent and colorful plethora of fruit and berries.

Spiced Cabbage and Fennel (03) by MeetaK

Everyone keeps telling me how organized we are with the prep-work for the move and how far we have already gotten. How come then do I not feel like we are organized and why is it that every time I think I have been good packing boxes and sorting out several items, I am bombarded with another 10 to dos?
