My Birthday

Birthday highlights:

Banana Yogurt

Breakfast was an old favorite: Homemade Banana Yogurt.

With extra banana, sliced strawberries, cacao nibs, and a homemade granola recipe (going in the cookbook). Not pictured: A side of Ezekiel toast spread with Nutzo nut butter. Not exactly the fanciest of birthday breakfasts, but it was delicious nonetheless.

During the day I went to a spa and got a $400 massage, followed by a hot stone massage and cucumber facial worked a lot on the cookbook, answered emails and questions, did some baking experiments and photoshoots, and made my own birthday dessert (recipe tomorrow!).

Then I drove to my parents’ for spaghetti dinner, and these faces greeted me:

After dinner, S and I went out for drinks, so the aforementioned birthday dessert had to wait until the next day… but it was well worth the wait. Oh, and it wasn’t chocolate! Any guesses?

    Happy birthday Katie! Thanks for your hard work on this blog. Hmmm…I am guessing a cake batter ice cream cake or SOME kind of ice cream cake!

    Hi Katie! it’s been a year that i have been checking your site daily for new blog posts and this is the first time that I’ve left a comment (sorry). Anyways happy belated birthday girl! Hope it was one of the best. And my guess for flavor would prob be birthday cake batter (it is a birthday desert after all)
    by the way it would be awesome if we could see S. He is such a mystery, got my curiosity a little peaked

    Well I have just decided that 1. you must be a very nice/awesome person and 2. I like you and your blog even more than before due to 1. you posted a peanut butter pie recipe and (more importantly) 2. you share a birthday with my sweet baby boy who turned 4 yesterday (and my Aunt who is super cool and nice)! Happy Birthday!
