‘Tis The Season

There are so many sweet treats during the holiday season that happen to be limited edition. One of which is something I stock up on. Trader Joe’s Joe Joe’s are a take on Oreo’s, Candy Cane Joe Joe’s are a dream. Mixed in with the cream filling are candy cane bits. Wow, they are amazing! One of my favorite treats can be made with these cookies. The oreo-cheesecake truffle.
Another favorite holiday treat literally translates to “dream” in English. It’s called Sonhos. They are a Portuguese dessert typically made during the Christmas season, however I have a bakery in my neighborhood that believes in making them every Saturday. YUM. They are, essentially, a fried ball of dough covered in cinnamon-sugar. Typical to Portuguese desserts, the inside of the dough is a very moist custard-dough.
Happy Holidays! And make sure to enjoy our favorite part of the holiday season, all of the amazing sugary treats!

Queen of Hearts

When Alice In Wonderland came out earlier this year I created a table to honor the Queen of Hearts, one of the most frightening characters I remember from my childhood. I love the idea of romanticizing this character. I’ve taken the photo of my table and translated it into a storyboard.
