About Me

My photo
I have two kids - a girl and a boy - and live in north-central Minnesota, land of snow and ice. Well, for 9 months of the year, that is. I work full-time for a local government, and on my "free time" I enjoy cooking, baking, hanging out with my kiddos, and RELAXING.

Why I Love...

...chocolate-covered strawberries.

For Mother's Day yesterday my family went up to eat at the casino about thirty minutes away from our home. They put together a nice brunch for Mother's Day, complete with ice sculptures.

After all, what's a brunch without ice sculptures?

Probably my favorite thing about the brunch was the dessert table. You could not even imagine all the pies there were. Apple, strawberry, pumpkin, chocolate, banana cream, and cheesecake, to name a few. Not to mention trays of bars and cream puffs. And, best of all, chocolate-covered strawberries.

I ate about nine of them. Not even joking. The tangy/sweetness of the strawberry, mixed with the rich crunch of hardened chocolate...mmm...what's not to love?


  1. It was you, dear Alaina, that got me liking chocolate covered strawberries. Do you remember bringing me some at work once(or twice)??

  2. Oh, yes, I do remember that! Oh, those were the days...
