My friend Sara makes cakes and cupcakes for special occasions, so my wife asked her to whip up some tasty treats for our friend Kim’s 50th birthday party.

Sara had made some delicious rumchata cupcakes (sprinkled with cinammon!) a few weeks ago for a small party, and they were amazing.

For Kim’s birthday, the party was “Golden Girls”-themed, as Kim is a big fan – and 50 years is celebrated with gold!

Boy, did Sara deliver – probably the tastiest, softest cupcakes that I have ever had! If you need a cake, you should check her out on Facebook.

And my wife even hand-made Golden Girls bunting for the occasion!


Why yes, I have been enjoying Shark Week and Shark Fest. Why do you ask?

Of course, there is no shark like the Great White — the ultimate predator – so I can’t really include Great Whites in my list of Top Three Sharks, because they truly are in a class all their own. So what are my Top Three Sharks?

#1 is the MAKO. They are crazy insane – just look at their eyes! And their teeth – my god, it’s like some sort of alien monster. And SO DAMN FAST.
#2 is the Great Blue. Because they seem to be the most graceful of all sharks.
#3 is the Basking. True, they are not “sharky” in the traditional sense of being able to bite you in half, but holy cow, when they open wide, they REALLY open wide!
