The weekend, briefly

The weekend was long and full. Lots of cooking and baking, two family birthday parties, and four loads of laundry on Monday afternoon.

*Baxter is an almost unbelievably adorable lab-rottweiler mix around a year old. He has a congenital hip disorder, and he recently had surgery to fix it, so he's recovering at my parents' home. He'll eventually need a permanent home, so if anyone in the general SoCal area is looking for a pup, feel free to email me. The whole family has fallen for him and his huge head, but we'd be thrilled if we could place him in a good home. 


  1. those lemon desserts look insane, but i must say...Baxter takes the cake. could he be any cuter/sweeter looking?

  2. aww Baxter is adorable! wish we lived closer - i would definitely take him home!
    and thanks a lot for making me really really want lemon pie right now. Is it acceptable to have such a thing for breakfast??

  3. Baxter is so adorable!! And those pies - mmmmm

  4. Those desserts look delicious!

  5. I don't live anywhere near California (Southeastern PA) but if I did, I'd scoop him up in a second.

  6. Oh, what I wouldn't give to bring Baxter home to my place! Sadly, Sweden is a bit far...

  7. "morning glory sparklers"? what a beautiful name for a thing

  8. Shiner! I didn't know they sold in California.

    Baxter is adorable.

  9. what an adorable dog! (sigh)

    and those desserts look amazing. recipes?

  10. Glad to know I wasn't the only one doing multiple loads of laundry on Monday afternoon!
    Baxter is ADORABLE. Hope he finds a good home!

  11. baxter looks like he'd make anyone's life happier. longing for the day when i can handle dog ownership without worrying about them having enough space to play.
