For a few minutes, I only had eyes for this ice cream cone…
My sweet momma’s birthday was last week, so on Friday I took her and my grandma to afternoon tea at Mozart’s Café.
Rose cream soda (I use Ramblin’) + vanilla bean ice cream = my newest obsession. It is delectable.
Naturally, with this being (Central) Ohio and all, it was 60 degrees during a winter festival in February. We still had fun, though. And it was nice not being bundled up.
The last few days have been pretty stressful, so on Saturday I popped in to the fabulous bakery that’s just around the corner from my day job. I saved this scrumptious scone for this morning’s breakfast. Between it, a cup of my fave tea, and a good book…I’m feeling a tad better.
This was my contribution to this year’s Thanksgiving meal. I adapted the recipe from Cookies & Cups (my only major alteration was using chocolate graham crackers, instead of regular ones). It was a hit!
Have a great day!
…at Stauf’s-German Village. I had a chai-der (chai latte/cider combination) and an epic blueberry muffin.
I have been too busy to do much reading this month, but, between now and Halloween, I’m going to try my best to make up for lost time.

On Saturday, we had brunch at one of our fave neighborhood restaurants, Valter’s at the Maennerchor. I could eat these every day:
