Currently Loving...


Bunheads! I am a die-hard Gilmore Girls fan and I have not been disappointed by this new offering from writer Amy Sherman-Palladino. While it is certainly not a Gilmore Girls replacement (nothing could be), it does have parallels, and it is wonderful in its own right. I can't wait to see where it goes!


Maple and pecan twists are just delicious. It's very tempting to eat one for breakfast every day! I want to try making something which incorporates these flavours, maybe Joy the Baker's Maple Pecan Muffins or the Maple-Pecan Pie Squares from Ezra Pound Cake (pictured above). Or The Pioneer Woman's Pecan Pie with her Whiskey Maple Cream Sauce. Or maybe all three!


The gorgeous flowers which are everywhere at the moment: buddleia and roses are blooming along our street, and there are pots overflowing with flowers outside almost every house. The photos above were taken in the Royal Botanic Gardens, which is so beautiful at this time of year.

  8. Bunheads? I've never heard of it, but if it's from Gilmore Girls people I bet I would love it. I still watch episodes from season 1! I miss that show. And wow is that Emily Gilmore on this show?! She's still living?? hahaha. Gorgeous flower photos!

  12. I've never heard of Bunheads but I'm intrigued mostly because it's from the writer of Gilmore girls. Those twist things sound too good to be true and your links aren't helping my craving. Thanks for sharing

  21. I haven't see n that show yet. Is it more of a drama than dance show? I like to watch dance related stuff but don't know if I want to get into another series. Unless it's really good!
