Wow you guys. I have seriously been neglecting this site. But life has got in the way, and I have been super busy with work that I really had no time to update anything since I got back.

But it was well worth the wait. I have a revamped my all-time most popular post into a little, portable version. Because we are busy people. We can't have a nice Sunday brunch every morning. Grab and go breakfasts are what we do.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting Recipe

New year, new you. ...And yet I am still making desserts packed with sugar. What is wrong with me??

To be fair, I am still on holiday. My first day of school isn't until the 9th, and PLUS there is orthodox Christmas that I need to consider. So I will start my new year of eating healthier after those festivities.

I mean.. I can always hope I will follow through on my goals. In the meantime, CUPCAKES!

Are you in a sugar coma from all of the chocolates/cookies/baking in general from Christmas Day? Or, my favourite day: Boxing Day, aka: half-off chocolate day?

If you aren't, we need to fix that. Have a mini cheesecake + cookie combo. And take out your stretchy pants.

And Nutella. Always Nutella.

Christmas Lights Cupcakes right in time for Christmas! This recipe is the perfect holiday dessert idea.

Quick: how do you get a group of teenage students to not mentally check out after a test during the last week of school before the holiday?

And a followup question: how do I prevent myself from not to mentally check out? I have succeeded so far, but as my flight to Vancouver is coming up on the 24th (yup, Christmas eve), and I have yet to wrap presents and pack my suitcase. Trying to mark 7 different tests and still be present in the classroom is taking up the majority of my time.

My coping mechanism: sugar. And lots of it.

What a crazy week! Is it just me, or did every day this week feel like a Friday?? I think this is what the holidays do to you. You feel done almost every day.

Personally speaking here, what the holidays do to me is make me all kinds of sick! I am already starting to feel it creeping on, so I am going to eat as much sugar and junk now before it hits me for real. Who's with me?

Is it the weekend already??

This week has been sooo busy, that I am kind of glad that it will be over soon. Report card deadlines are looming, and so are 4 upcoming tests. So once that is over, I will be a whole new kind of busy: can't see over my desk because of all of the tests kind of busy.

One regular sized cinnamon roll just won't cut it today.
