A Perfect Weekend

This weekend was just what I needed!
A trip to Newport Beach complete with macarons.
A delicious dinner outside.
Lots of relaxing and walking on the beach.
More good food and actually time to cook at home!
It was a perfect weekend! Now let's hope this week is better than the last!

A Very "Ugh" Kind of Week...

Last week marked the start of my first "real" job, teaching a few different classes at an academy. To say this first week of school was rough would be an understatement! From controlling a class of over 30 seventh graders, to preparing new material for all the different subjects, definitely takes its toll! This left much less time for baking, cooking, blogging, and other things that never fail to make the day that much better. I can only hope that as the weeks continue things will get easier and more comfortable, leaving time for those little things that make me happy. 
But today is Friday and that means it's just the start to a couple awesome days!! :)
Wishing everyone an amazing weekend!!

Recipe: Artichoke and Feta Tarts with Tomato Salad

A quick and delicious recipe from Donna Hay* that I have wanted to try for quite some time.  It's perfect as an appetizer or lunch and is ready in less than 20 minutes! 

*One change I would make to the recipe is to use basil instead of the mint, the mint just didn't work for me with this.
