What I've been baking

This was my Valentine's Day dessert. The icing is amazing! A word to the wise, if you're going to make chocolate covered strawberries eat them right away. I tried to freeze them, big mistake, although I heard you can refrigerate them.

I used Nutella as the filling

Great with crackers. My recipe was out of a Jamaican cookbook, but looks very similar to this one.

What I'm listening to (Music).

 I am loving John Mayer's album Paradise Valley.

What I'm listening to (books).
  Now that I have a longer commute to work I've been flying through audio books. Some were great some, well not as great. I'm just going to include the ones I liked.

This story was so interesting. It's about the true story of one of the main contributors to the Oxford English Dictionary.
by Edward Irving Wortis

I loved this story. It's a great adventure story, something I wanted to keep listening to until the end.

This book was wonderful! It is definitely one of my favorite books, and the audio book was so well done.

I listened to this on my long drive to Nebraska. It was great. I don't have kids and I still loved it.
 
What I've been doing to enjoy these past few snowy months


Well I got engaged a few months back :)
So it's been a lot of trying to decide what our wedding will look like. Lots to plan.

Also, I moved the end of January, so I've been settling in and still doing a bit of rearranging.
That's been my life recently, oh and watching the Olympics, which I didn't have nearly enough free time to watch. Hope you are all well and enjoying life!

Any suggestions for books to read or listen to? I'd love to hear what you're loving!
