An Afternoon of Baking

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to be in the kitchen.  I find it truly amazing that you can take a bunch of ingredients that don’t taste exceptional on their own to create something that is delicious, and I have spent hours in the kitchen experimenting with new creations.  I know …

Sunday morning started out like every other day.  It was quiet and I was sitting out on the deck enjoying a cup of coffee early in the morning.  I was thinking about the work I was going to do throughout the day when all of a sudden I heard the sound of breaking glass. I …

Looking at Houses in Los Angeles
