Lime Bars with Coconut Crust

I made you some lime bars to get ready for spring!

I say this stuff about “spring” as I look out of my window at…snow.  On April 3rd.  It’s not even April 1st, so you know it’s not an April Fools (Fool’s? Fools’?  Do the jokes belong to the fools?) joke.

Champagne Cupcakes with Grapefruit Curd

I accomplished a great deal yesterday.

I slept until 11am.  I found a parking spot at Northpark mall in under 10 minutes.  I bought a cute, sparkly, bright blue new year’s dress and saved lots of money on it.

But most importantly, I got to bake with Kate! Bffae baking reunion! (more…)
