It definitely has been real quiet around here huh? And it has been intentional to focus on myself and my health. Nothing too serious I assure you. But what has really sucked is, not baking. And especially not baking with Evie. It really is an […]
The weather is starting to get nice here in New York.
So, even though it’s a bit early to see all the gardens blooming, we took a trip over to Stonecrop Gardens in Cold Spring.
Such a gorgeous place!
There is an admission fee of $10, $5 for kids and seniors, Free under 3. It is walkable but once you get near the Rock Ledge etc, I wouldn’t recommend strollers. So if you have kiddos under 3, bring them in a carrier!
For the upkeep and beauty of a place such as this, its totally worth it!
I cannot wait to go back when all the gardens are blooming, I bet it is BEAUTIFUL!
There are pools of water in so many places, teeming with all sorts of activity.
We saw so many frogs we lost count, including frog eggs!
There are two gorgeous Koi in the main pond near the Conservatory.
Evie loved walking along with her little camera, snapping pictures of all the wildlife.
They even have a cool Rock Bridge you can cross, carefully!
And beautiful greenhouses of plants of all kinds!
You can even purchase your own!
Awesome architectural structures around the pools.
I definitely can’t wait to go back when the weather is warmer and more flowers are blooming!
Worth the trip for sure!
Just be sure to bring lunch and lots of water with you!
If you have been checking the site for updates, there hasn’t been much.
I apologize for that!
Clearly, blogging consistently is NOT my forte!
But I promise you, Evie and I have still been cooking and baking!
I’ve actually been finding myself a bit interested in cake decorating.
I have no experience really as far as school or classes are concerned, but it has been a creative outlet for me I didn’t know I needed.
I need more excuses to make cake! HA!
The Unicorn cake we made for Evie’s birthday has really been the catalyst to all of this.
Then we made a Teapot Cake for Evie’s BFF at school. Which was so fun and so challenging!
We also made a cake for my Brother and Sister In Law’s housewarming party.
This one is a favorite of mine. I love the simplicity of it and THAT BANNER!
So really, we’re here. Just checking in.
Hopefully I can get more time(and Planning LOL) to have more to share with you guys soon!
KOL-AH-CHI? KOL-ACK-IE? However you pronounce it, we’re KOL-AH-CHI over here, we love them. I am of Czech descent. These little sweet buns were commonly made, as far as I am aware, in the areas of central Europe. Ie: Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland etc. And it […]
Hey, remember me??
I hope everyone had a great holiday season and Happy New Year!
We had such craziness up until and through our holidays, our New Year’s Eve was very low key as you can see lol
Between the busy-ness of the holidays and us being sick for a few weeks, it was rough.
But we had a great Christmas and were happy we got to spend it with all of our loved ones!
I’m hoping this year will bring a lot more fun for us, the same as the last!
We will still be baking(haven’t stopped lol) and cooking as usual. Although, probably posting a little less.
Trying to keep up every week like I’ve done in the past has proven hard this time around. As you have probably noticed!
Sorry about that.
BUT! I will be posting again, we have a few things we’re cooking up in the next few weeks. So stay tuned.
Hope everyone has a great New Year!!!!
