“There are two types of people in this world. The kind that naturally excel at life, and the people that wish those people would get blown up in an explosion.”
“You may have to walk through your own darkened doorways and actively turn on the light to conquer whatever frightens you.”

I can’t promise that this will be the last pumpkin recipe (I still have some saved in my freezer)…but it certainly is one of the best! In the last years, Friendsgiving, has become increasingly more popular. A time before Thanksgiving, typically spent with family, to gather friends and throw down in an epic potluck. Mostly an excuse to eat more pie. I look it was a way to prepare my stomach for the main day! Or at least that is what I tell myself.
“If you want to be understood …Listen.”
Babel is a film that has an all-star cast and a director that gives the performance of a lifetime. Alejandro Gonzalez choreographs a beautiful dance around the world that brings four families in different countries all together in the most unusual circumstances.
“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.”
Snow has arrived in Boulder, Colorado! Well, technically it did as it is all gone now. The magic of this state and the changing seasons that go from week to week and day to day. On Wednesday we were all informed that it was going to snow on Thursday which was hard to believe given that it was in the upper sixties and there was nothing but clouds and sunshine.
“I like it when it rains hard. It sounds like white noise everywhere, which is like silence but not empty.”

So I am a day late on this post…but it is better to celebrate late rather than never. Yesterday was world adoption day which means a lot to me and my family given that I was adopted from China.

It seems like in Boulder that everyone has some sort of food allergy and this recipe for a yummy dessert is accessible to everyone and very easy to make! It is also incredibly yummy, healthy and can be made for any holiday based on the fruit decorations on top!
