Happy Birthday, Ben!

It's Ben's birthday! I made the Smitten Kitchen chocolate peanut butter cake. Mmm here it is with the peanut butter buttercream frosting, about to be ganached!

Mmmm, ganache.


Hmmm, I wonder what we might have gotten him?

Open it!

The Saucony rainbow shoes!!! Always gotta smell a new pair of shoes.

The most cheerful soles ever.


Birthday dinner! I made pulled pork with cilantro rice and lots of toppings. Mom brought a delicious salad!


41! Make a wish!

This is the dankest cake in the history of cakes. It's so good!

It's been feeling springy lately! Felix and I took a walk to visit the daffies.

My neighbor Katherine has been making Black Lives Matters signs, and they are beautiful. Each sign features the High John de Conquer variety of Morning Glory, and then you get to choose a flower or two of your own. I went tropical and chose hibiscus and plumeria. It turned out beautiful!
