Meet Lupita...

Isn't it funny how people come into your life at the exact right moment?

Lupita and I have kids at the same school, in the same grade.  I've noticed as kiddo has gotten older, I know most of the moms of the boys in his class, but not the girls.  So, when Lupita and I met this fall, I was just shocked that A. we hadn't met before, and B. that we had so much in common.

Not only are kiddo and her daughter in the same class, but we both decorate cookies, are *slightly* overprotective parents, have curly hair, and we both wore gold sparkly ballet flats the first time we met for coffee.  Kismet!

You can see how absolutely GORGEOUS Lupita is...I am not kidding, she always is adorable.  She also makes the loveliest cookies!  The colors and details she adds on her creations are just so, so sweet!

She also made some of my most favorite cookies EVER in the world:

Lupita has a new blog called Mil Grageas and I thought you needed to know about it.  I know you need to know about it.  What's more....it's in SPANISH!!!  (Or, en Español, which is about the extent what I recall of my 4 years worth of Spanish class in high school.)  I know many of you who read the blog are Spanish speakers...and even if you aren't, you can always use Google Translate...or follow the pictures. ;)

Let me brag on Lupita a little bit (un pequeño...see what I did there? Actually, I'm not even sure I used that correctly) more. Yes, she makes beautifully decorated cookies.  She's also an phenomenal cook.
Phenomenal.

Remember those macarons I made recently?  She taught me how.  She also taught me to make crepes (OH my gosh...delicious); recipe is here in English, too.  Yeah, you'll want to bookmark her blog.

Don't even get me started on those minions.

  9. Bridget!!!!!! I feel I do not deserve too much sweetness!!!!...but I truly believe that God put the right persons in the right place, we just have to open our hearts and eyes to see who is beside us….and it was so funny how my daughter and I put all the pieces together and find out that you were the writer of my favorite blog !!!! ( the one I have been checking for quite a while when I need cookie advice )

    I really thank you a lot because if it wasn't for your blog many people like me would have never been able to decorate cookies...I would have never have met you…never had the courage to start a blog…never been part of a post in your blog…never find out that the persons that write the blogs are REAL PEOPLE...and most of all to count on you and your family as FRIENDS!!!

    I really admire when someone is so open to share all her knowledge and experiences in the Kitchen…and I hope I can capture someones heart through my blog as you have capture mine!!!!
    God bless you!!!
