Samoa Cookie as a cake?

We celebrated my father’s 60th birthday with the things he’s grown to love the most: family and Korean food! He also is a big fan of cookies… and like most Americans will never turn down a good Girl Scout treat. My sister Tricia is an excellent cook and baker and is always up for trying new recipes. After she saw this Samoa cookie inspired cake.. she thought the big birthday was a perfect day to give it a try. In the end my dad approved and even had a nice hibiscus shirt to match the theme! Happy Birthday DAD!

Cake for breakfast

Kate Middleton who? There’s a real princess in the media and she’s got the crown, sash and cake fit for a queen (DQ baby!) to prove it. Happy birthday to producer Charlitta Rodrigues. Not only is she stylish.. she’s smart and sweeter than the two cakes our weekend morning crew got her put together. (Yet another example of how those in the communications business are perhaps the worst at communicating themselves) At least the misunderstanding means MORE CAKE FOR YOU!

Happy birthday princess

How can we focus on the birthday girl when T-rock has THOSE shoes on. Hey 1997 called.. and you know what they want back boy!




A ShamRockin’ Birthday

My St. Patrick’s Day got off to a great start. Around 5AM the wonderful morning show crew surprised me with cupcakes and a cake (that tasted like COSTCO cake- my favorite!). Between the flowers, facebook messages and tweets, phone calls and texts I feel very fortunate to have lived another year and to have had such incredible people in my life. Thank you! Be safe everyone and hope you strike the luck of the Irish today!

Adora is a sweet ONE!

I cannot believe 1 year has passed since the first day I became a mom. There are already so many memories (and exploding memory card) that I can’t imagine how we’re gonna find roomformore. I know we will though.

Happy birthday Adora Kate. Thank you for bringing pure joy into our lives. Adora wants to say thank you to her playmates who all came out to celebrate. We gathered for the famous frozen hot chocolate and cake at Serendipity 3 in Georgetown. The theme was Adora’s Winter Candy Land Party and boy was it sweet. We had Adora candy, santa hats, marshmellow snowmen and a Willy Wonka inspired cake complete with edible Oompa Loompa and a real monster gummy bear.  Serendipity’s pastry chef surprised us all!

Speaking of cake… of course there was a “smash cake” and boy did baby girl destroy it!  In the end she ended up dress-less because of it and was running around the restaurant in just her diaper and stockings.Classy.

This year we asked for no gifts but suggested bringing an unwrapped toy to donate to charity this Christmas. Thank you to all who helped fill the box. Adora is excited to deliver the toys to Children’s Hospital.  Enjoy the pictures.. they’re delicious and be warned there are a ton.

Happy 80th Papa

Mom who makes Noms

Nikki's white cake with chocolate chip cookie dough filling for baby's 6 month old birthday

I love seeing women start their own businesses. I have the utmost admiration for moms, especially new ones who venture into this world. Meet my neighbor and girlfriend Nikki Hill. She just had a baby like an hour ago and also around the same time decided to start Noms by Nikki. What’s a nom you ask? According to Nik it’s an onomatopoeic adjective based on the sound emitted when something is “oh so tasty.” I can attest her noms live up to it’s definition.

See exhibit A & B below- the chocolate cake with peanut butter buttercream icing she made me. It was gone in 1.5 days.

You can see from her creations she can do just about anything: cake pops, chocolates, cakes, brownies, cookies, you name it.
