This fresh Korean cream cake is my absolute favorite cake of all time.  If you’ve never had an Asian bakery style cake, you’re really missing out.  The fluffy chiffon cake layers are the only base worthy enough to slather liberally with the light and airy frosting it’s traditionally paired with.  The taste is subtly more

7 Ways I’m Getting Into The Holiday Spirit


It’s often hard on a little tropical rock like ours to get into the holiday spirit, especially when it’s pretty much 85 degrees all year round but, I’m hardly complaining.  I’m grateful we’re not bombarded with ads and billboards.  Back in the states, I’d grab holiday-themed lattes with friends bundled up in my scarf more

What I’m Packing For Kenya


Kenya, here we come! With the flurry of back to back category 5 hurricanes, we were displaced for awhile and things were hectic to say the least.  We most definitely weren’t in any place mentally to plan our yearly anniversary trip and so we put it off until things settled.  This year, we’re celebrating more
