Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt CakeThis May will mark our family’s one year anniversary of living in Dubai.  I’m shocked at how that creeped up on us.  We absolutely love it here and we won’t be moving back to the States anytime soon, mostly because my husband has at least 5 years of work left!  Dubai is growing like crazy and they’ve been on a theme park craze lately.  (Chris is a project manager for an indoor theme park that’s being built) It’s only one of the may under construction right now.

Blogging this October has been so much fun!  Halloween and all her spookiness has sparked my baking imagination.  First came the Ferrero Rocher Spiders which turned into Chocolate Tarantula Cupcakes, and then my Monster Strawberry Cupcakes (my favorite so far).  I’m a Christmas girl through and through, but I gotta say I’m kind of sad to see Halloween go.  There’s only a little under 2 weeks left of October and it will all be over.
