My hope is to inspire you to be fearless in the kitchen, to try new things, to take the time to make things the homemade way and most importantly, to have fun doing it!

Baking Something Special…


I’m baking something pretty special.  Pretty pink cupcakes.  Okay, really it’s just one very important pink cupcake.  That’s right, our family is growing!  I’m thrilled to announce that we are expecting our second child, a baby girl due in early April.


I’ve been dying to share this news for a long time, but unfortunately two pregnancy losses in the past year has made us extra cautious.   I’ll admit it wasn’t easy keeping the food blog afloat during the first trimester, when almost any new recipe sounded horrible to me and I enjoyed more fast food than I care to admit.  But now I’m well into the second trimester (almost into the third!) and back to my normal food blogging self.  I can’t even describe how much I am looking forward to meeting our little bundle of love!  (And possibly second on my list of things I’m most excited about is eating sushi again.  Oh, how I miss it.)

Our family certainly has much to be thankful for this holiday season.  I hope everyone has a blessed holiday with family and loved ones!

(By the way, I’ll be sharing the recipe for these strawberry cupcakes in the coming week or so.  The frosting is to die for!)

    Congratulations on your baby. I’m due with a baby girl the first week in April too. I’m amazed you were able to do all the wonderful cooking you did during your first trimester, I couldn’t do it. I love all your food, especially the cupcakes! I hope my pictures can start coming out as good as yours. Merry Christmas!

    BTW — after your first birth announcement, I was curious as to how you might announce your second someday… I LOVE this!

  • http://phariseefreed.blogspot.com/ Susan

    Congratulations. That is exciting news!

  • Annie

    For one thing it is raw so there is risk of infection, and another is that a lot of the seafood has extremely high mercury content which is a no-no in pregnancy. Even canned tuna is really bad. There are certain types that are okay, so I just stick to those.

  • Annie

    He’s doing great! I’m not completely sure how much he “gets it” yet. He hugs my belly, calls the baby by her name, and sings her songs, but as for the connection between the belly and seeing an actual screaming, crying infant – I’m not sure he’ll totally get that.

  • Carilyne

    Wow! Annie, I am beyond thrilled to hear this news! I am so happy for you and your family! Enjoy your holidays and I look forward to hearing more about your little cupcake in the oven! ;)

  • Jenny

    Congratulations! May God bless you and your family this year! I know what you mean about waiting to tell. When we finally stayed pregnant we waited 20 weeks. Only 3 people knew and it wasn’t even my family :)

    How exciting!!! That is fantastic news..I don’t know how you kept up with a blog if you were sick! I too am due in April (3rd) with my 3rd..we don’t know what we’re having but already have a girl and boy. I was sooo sick (again)…Kudos to you for working and blogging. You look fantastic!!! Best wishes for a healthy pregnancy and baby!

  • http://smells-like-home.com Tara @ Smells Like Home

    You know how excited I am for you Annie! When I posted for our party, I was ::thisclose:: to writing that the virgin Cranberry Lime Bellinis were specifically you but since I couldn’t remember if you posted about your pregnancy on the blog, I revised before posting. I would have felt so bad spoiling your surprise to your readers! Anyway…Merry Christmas! I suspect this one will be way way better than last year. :)

  • Lucia

    OMG! Congratulations!!! I always look at the pictures before reading the post but when I saw these pics I thought “that’s so weird, she almost never posts pictures of herself” but then I read it and it all made sense! I am so happy for you! I wish you and your family the very best!! Happy Holidays!!! :D

    Congratulations Annie!! I am incredibly happy and excited for you and your family and I wish you the best of luck throughout the pregnancy. I’ll be honest, after I got over the happiness of this news, I did think about how your posts may become less frequent. But family first!

    Allow me to add my voice to the chorus of Congratulations! The expected arrival of new life is always wonderful news! I hope all goes well for you and your growing family.

  • Annie

    No worries, I’ll still post often. I think I may drop down to three times per week, but I doubt it will ever be any less than that. And the main reason is just because I insist on only sharing recipes that I think are great, not just okay, so I think three days of great is better than five “eh” days, you know?

  • http://www.ahealthyabundance.com Janet

    Congratulations, Annie! I’ve enjoyed having a girl so much, and know that you will, too. Many great baking opportunities lie ahead for you, no doubt… I’m sure you’ll be knee-deep in pink icing in no time.
    Happy holiday!

    I’m also very sorry for your losses, it’s so difficult to go through a loss like that and even more so when it happens repeatedly. I can’t believe you never had a noticeable lull in posting surrounding those times. Your strength is admirable. xoxo

  • Wendy G

    Okay I was just coming here to thank you for all of the holiday treats that I have gotten from your blog (just made the eggnog cupcakes last night and they are INCREDIBLE!).

    Congratulations!

    Congratulations on your pregnancy! Wishing you an uneventful pregnancy and delivery.

    We suffered 2 miscarriages in the last 12 months too, hoping the new year is better– Xander needs a sibling.

  • Annie

    I’m so sorry to hear that. You’ll be in my thoughts and I hope you have a healthy pregnancy soon! The best news is that you already have one healthy child, so you know you are capable of it. Sometimes you just have to hold on to that.

  • Carrie

    Congratulations Annie! So many blessings this Holiday Season!

    Hi Annie! I’ve read your blog for a while and tried out many of your recipes. It’s so nice to see someone who’s a resident who still has time to cook and have a family (I’m a second year medical student). Congratulations on the baby girl! And thanks for all the awesome recipes!

    Congratulations, Annie!

    I’ve been following your food blog for awhile now, and I really like it! You cook like me and I’ve enjoyed many of the recipes you’ve posted. I too am pregnant and due in the spring with my secong (due at the end of May though). We actually find out in two days what we’re having. I can totally emphasise with your not wanting to cook. From weeks 7 through 14 I could barley meal plan. We had ALOTTA take out those nights! I’m just now getting into cooking again and I’m so happy that nausea has left!

    Congratulations again! How very exciting!
