Majestic Purple

You can NEVER go wrong with purple - It's just so full and easy on the eye. It's definitely my favorite color. I don't really wear it to often, or even own many purple clothes for that matter. And never have I baked or cooked anything purple...besides berry-something-or-another. 

This icing looks heavenly!!...And I will be trying this soon!

Cupcake Vinyard

What?! Cupcakes and wine together?

I've always seen Cupcake wine at HEB and Specs, but I finally have joined their newsletter and have started reading more into the wines. So far this is the first one I will try - Sounds delicious!

Of course I will try to eventually try them all - But for now, if you have tried it or heard about it please share!!

When I think of noodles I think Ramen Noodle...so I'm changing that thought into how much I love food photography.

Here are a couple of neat photos I found with noodles/pasta, in honor of the carb-loaded, funny shaped food's holiday:
