Chocolate dipped coconut macaroons from Weight Watchers.

I'm not a huge fan of coconut but these are really good and only 50 calories each!

I love Sunday mornings, I also love cheese. Voila! Broccoli cheddar quiche it is!

NCAA games = me baking more.

I'm not a fan of basketball, especially on television. Honestly, it's the sound of the squeaking sneakers.

I decided to bake a bit today and tomorrow while T watches the games.

Today I made Millionaire's shortbread, a recipe I found on this fantastic blog, Piece of Cake: Freshly Baked Stories, Recipes and Photos. The author, Shauna, always has wonderful recipes and photographs. Her writing style is lovely and I always laugh while reading her latest posts. You can get the recipe from the link. Below are some photographs. It's a delicious dessert. I actually made it for T to take to his friend's house to have while watching today's games.

Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig (Happy St. Patrick's Day)!

To celebrate St. Patrick's Day I tried a new recipe for Shepard's pie. I found this one on the Weight Watcher's website. It's wonderful and satisfying, you wouldn't know it's low fat or low calorie at all. It's made with lean ground turkey. It's wonderful!

Whew! What a week and a birthday.

This week at work has been stressful. Ugh.

Nothing makes me feel better than baking. I wanted to whip something up quickly and was thumbing through one of my Weight Watchers cookbooks and came upon a recipe for Triple Chocolate Brownie Thins. The are rich but not heavy and one is just enough!

Monday was my birthday. I am so lucky to have the people I do in my life. I am incredible grateful for their generosity. T's parents sent me an extra mixer bowl for my KitchenAid Professional 600 Series six quart mixer as well as a scraper blade paddle attachment. They also sent me nine ramekins! eeeeee! I'm so excited to use them!

T gave me this beauty. Am I lucky or what? I've been snapping away and actually have a shoot this Saturday! I'm excited to get back at it!

Happy baking!
