Magical mint chocolate cupcakes

We are mint chocolate addicts — and so our dear friend and chef/artist/extraordinaire Lisa tested out several batches until she came up with these incredible mint chocolate cupcakes for our big celebration this weekend. The frosting is light, creamy and super minty with a lovely shaving of chocolate on top. The cupcake pairs perfectly, airy…

Glorious Caprese toast

Mama and I enjoyed a glorious lunch of Caprese sourdough toast with sun-warmed tomatoes and sweet basil from our garden! It was such a delicious treat! Fresh mozzarella paired with tomatoes and basil is a longtime favorite of ours because it reminds us of being in Italy. Today’s #OneGoodThing was this beautiful, tasty Caprese toast with…

My bestie stocked the fridge beautifully, including all of my favorite treats from The Ferry Building. So Mama and I haven’t had to leave,…
