Hello everyone!  How’s your week going so far?  Did you make it through Monday without totally falling asleep in the middle of the day?  Daylight savings time is great ’cause the days are longer, but I really missed that freaking hour.  Girl got to have her sleep, feel me?

Luckily we have copious amounts of coffee in our household.  And this past weekend hubby and I  got a new kitchen toy.  Yay!  We bought a Nespresso coffee machine.  Hubby had one at work and raved about it; it went on sale for like $80 bucks off so we decided to pick one up and so happy we did.  If you love coffee like hubby & I do, then you’d love this machine.  You’ve probably seen all those commercials with George Clooney and Danny DeVito going around making a big deal about the coffee that this machine makes.  I know, I know, like ‘what the heck, it’s only coffee; what’s the big deal, right?’ I dunno, they must infuse some kinda magic Continue reading

Hey everybody!  How’s it going?

Lime and Coconut Yogurt Cake

LimenCoconutYogurtCakewithGarnish

So creamy & delish, you might think that this is a cheesecake, but it’s not.  It’s made with yogurt so it’s not quite as dense as cheesecake, so you could totally eat more than one piece at a sitting.  It’s basically fruit & yogurt so that means it’s like a fruit cup, right?  Right 🙂
