It also happens K was nursing a cold yet it’s his birthday so I thought some antioxidants will be good for him. 🙂 The funny thing is, I scoured the internet… Continue reading Pandan Blueberry Cake recipe
O was asking, “Daddy, am I five years old already?” And we told him, “Baby, you’re not even four yet.” Needless to say, he’s really excited about his birthday and can’t wait to grow up.

The only… Continue reading Small batch baking: Baby Carrot Cupcakes
