Citrus Tart @ Beaucoup Bakery

On my last girl date with TDog, we made a trip down to Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe so TDog could try out their pastries too.  A good thing about Beaucoup is that they come out with seasonal limited edition pastries to keep things interesting. This time around, to give us a taste of summer which […]

Home-cooking: Heart Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

I prepared these adorable heart-shaped cinnamon rolls for dessert for our Valentine’s night dinner. As usual I found a super easy recipe online, this time from the Pillsbury website itself!
