Ahhh, I knew I had a backlog of photos – I just realize how bad. So here is one attempt at trying to clear the queue a bit.

Over Winter break, I went back home to New York City. Due to the size of our apartment, this was our Christmas tree:

As always, baked some crowd-pleasing mocha chip meringues for the family.

We also got some pizza dough and mini pepperoni slices to make miniature pizzas. Great fun for the kids!

K. whipped out a doozy – Bacon wrapped spuds!

We put up pretty lights for Christmas. LEDs are in, yo.



Snowpocalypse happened too.


But a visit home isn’t complete without visiting Spot Dessert Bar with J.

She also treated me to Serendipity 3 as my Christmas present! We were understandably stuffed.

She also ordered this HUGE sundae. I gave up two bites in.

She tried her best – really, she did.

In the end, she killed about a fifth of it.
