Knock Knock...

Who's there?
Linzy who!?!?
See I knew I'd been away too long!
Hi lads & lasses! OMG I'm back, can you believe it? It's been a while, so what have I been doing? Hmmm...a lot of things like spending lots of time with my hubby and moving and studying and test taking and starting my new job and keeping cool in the pool and river floating with the hubs and eating, oh yes, a lot of eating! I am thoroughly amazed by the fantastic food that South Texas has to offer, seriously people, we have lived in a lot of food cities but San Anton rivals the best of them!
Look at this HUGE pizza! Everything really is bigger in Texas! We went to a friend's birthday celebration at Big Lou's Pizza: home of the 42" pizza...crazy big & crazy good!

I've also been doing a lot of coffee drinking and dessert eating. The way I see it, it's research! Here is a tantalizing photo of some pretty much spot on New York Style crumb coffee cake, oh yum! They sell it at the best little coffee shop EVER, called Local. It is the perfect little coffee house that sells by far the best coffee that ever graced these taste buds! Barry and I have spent a lot of time there! Seriously if you guys are ever in San Antonio, it is a must try! So there you have it, my last two months in a nutshell or a blog shell maybe?
So as you can see given my absence I have done almost zero baking. Sad I know, but my plate was a little full in more ways than one! So tomorrow will mark my first day back in the swing of things, I'm doing a small cookie set for a new baby girl who recently entered this world. I will definitely let y'all see how they turn out! What if I forgot how to decorate in 2 months...totally joking!
So now onto the meat of this post...I want to show you guys this awesome book I received from my sister for a housewarming, or rather house-cooling gift as she said. I just wanted to show you all what an adorable book it is. There are so many recipes that I am dying to try & I will definitely share when I make my first paleta!
Key lime paletas...yummy!
These coconut paletas will definitely be my first tested recipe! The look sooooooo yummy and refreshing! Perfect for the end of summer!
After moving to Texas, I decided that it would be so fun to do a post series on Southern State's desserts. And since I am new to the Southern states, I'm going to have to do some research! In addition to my research, I want to include you all in creating the series. So here's your chance to share your recipes with me and with blog land. You wanna join in my End of Summer Southern Treat Series? Just send me an email at: sandwich.cookies.cakes@gmail.com or leave me a comment! Thanks everyone for having faith I'd return! Happy baking, happier eating!


  1. Merry Christmas,

    I have enjoyed your blog, missed you and wanted you to know I miss your blog. This is not a guilt trip, just a note to let you know you have impacted my life.

    I am impressed that you juggle so much, and am evn more impressed that you have priorities. I have learned that it isn't the unity of projects, but the quality also.

    Thanks again, and when you have the time to come back,I ill be waiting. A reply to this e mail isn't necessary.
