Hummus Giveaway Winner

For your viewing pleasure is this photo of Gary and Mitzki.  They may look like best friends, but don’t be fooled.  Most of the time, they ignore each other.  Although on cold afternoons these days, they can be found hanging out on the same patch of sun to keep warm.  Great minds think alike!

Thanks to everyone who left such nice comments about my carrot cupcakes.  I hope you all try the neat little trick with the carrot juice — if you do, let me know what you think.  I already have some more ideas in mind for quick and easy 2-ingredient cakes, so stay tuned.

It’s time to announce the winner of the Tribe Hummus Giveaway. chose lucky number 8: Michelle W.  Congratulations, Michelle! Send me your address and I’ll get the coupons for two containers (either 8-ounce or 16-ounce) of Tribe Hummus in the mail to you. Thanks to all who entered this giveaway.

Birthday Cats

Today is my birthday so I thought I’d take a break from food writing and just do a little “fluff piece” with photos of my amazing felines. That’s Gary and Mitzi on the stairs, with Gary looking a little miffed and suspicious at having his photo taken.

The second photo shows them having their morning tete-a-tete at the back door with Jason, obviously planning some sort of birthday surprise for me. Jason is the outdoor kitty who “came with the house.” The former owner of the house, who called him “Kitty Brother,” told us that Jason has been a fixture on the property for about seven years, but he won’t let anyone near him or reveal his age. As much as I’d like him to be an indoor kitty, I don’t think he will ever cross that threshold. He does let me feed him every day, and I can now pet him, if I don’t make sudden movements. Jon built him a great little house on our deck where he enjoys napping.

I hope you enjoy these pics of my kids.
