First Quarter Favorites

It's April! Do you know what that means? We're already a quarter of the way done with 2013! Where does the time go? Anyway, I usually try to do a little monthly recap at the end of each month but I've been really bad about it recently so I went back to the beginning of the year and picked out a few of my favorite posts...

I shared a little tour of my kitchen back in January. Check it out here!

These baked jalapeno poppers were the perfect Super Bowl treat.

I took a few photos one morning around my apartment. It definitely inspired me to start doing photo an hour posts again.

I experimented with baking a cake in a can... and it worked!

My mom and I took a tour of Rancho Los Alamitos a few weeks ago and I took lots of photos.

A few weeks after Christmas, I tried out one of my presents... a donut maker! I love how these little guys turned out.

My mom passed down her old slow cooker to me and I've been using it a lot. One of the first recipes I tried is pictured above... spicy chicken and beans!

I've found some really cool stuff at estate sales recently. That mail holder is one of my personal favorites.

Last but not least, I attempted my first chocolate silk pie. This recipe isn't simple but it's well worth the effort.

Here's to another productive (and tasty) month!


  1. I still totally adore that mail holder, too!

    1. Thanks, Chelsea! :) I still need to find a place to hang it!
