This and That


  • We enjoyed the Super Bowl. It’s remarkable that Tom Brady has won 7 Super Bowls.
  • I made soft pretzels for the big game and we devoured them. I used this recipe but made big pretzels.
  • It’s always sad when football season comes to an end. Time to focus on the NBA. The Jazz are having a great season so far. The boys have also been watching the Olympic channel. They love watching any sporting event.
  • We watched Lupin on Netflix. Interesting show. I’m glad there will be another season.


  • New this week, a FUN idea for Valentine’s Day, an easy dessert, the most decadent dessert, and a CLASSIC!
  • Go enter our BIG giveaway on Instagram. Today is the last day to enter!
  • Are you watching Firefly Lane on Netflix? I think the book is better (it’s one of my favorites), but I am still enjoying the show. I only have a couple episodes left.
  • Love all of the neutral colors.
  • This tastes like a dreamy dessert.
  • Wow!
  • I love having this in the fridge. A breakfast lifesaver!
  • So pretty for spring.
  • Making this.
  • Updated to these!
  • Do you have any fun plans for Valentine’s Day? I can’t decide. Cookies, cake, or brownies? It’s all about the chocolate for me!

    1. It is linked in the post, see above. Josh used our pretzel bite recipe but made big pretzels. It makes 8 big pretzels.

  1. I am curious as to why AD published an article about the Cali Brady /Bunchen home that they sold years ago to Dr. Dre. Since then, they built and sold a similar style home in the Boston area, purchased a pre-construction luxury apartment in NYC that was finished in 2018 and recently sold and are presently designing a waterfront property in Tampa. It seems the couple likes dealing in design and real estate. Fun hobby if one has tons of money.
    Quick question regarding your DELICIOUS flourless chocolate cake. I want to make four 4″ mini cakes to give to two neighbor couples for a V Day treat. Do you think I can eek out four little cakes from the one batch or will I need to make two batches? Any insight would be helpful. Thanks!

    1. Oh, interesting! Thanks for sharing! The house is gorgeous…whoever it belongs to:) You need to double the recipe if you want to get four cakes.
