If you have been following me for a while then you know I like to make the most of my weekends. The weekend is when we get to treat and pamper ourselves by doing things that make us happy such as going to cute coffee shops, dressing up and going on date nights, shopping sprees and the list goes on. But when there’s a long weekend, we love to go away. Doesn’t have to be far, a location that’s close, rich in history, gorgeous scenery and beautiful coffees will do 😉 With that being said, A few months ago, we … Continue reading Our trip to Tobermory 2017

Before we head on to the recipe, I want to share a little story of how I got introduced to Banana bread and why making this bread will always be memorable. Back when I was in Florida, for a very short period of time I stayed with one of my best friend and her parents. While I was there I got to learn a lot of things that come in handy every now and then. One of the things was making use of those old, overly ripe bananas. The beautiful lady who agreed to house me, loved having banana breads … Continue reading Chocolate Banana Bread
I love wearing perfumes. Not only does it make me feel and smell good, but it boosts my self confidence…and if you must know, I am always out there searching for various ways to be more confident.

This is the original recipe, I made a few changes to the toppings because I did not have all the ingredients on hand. Everything else was cooked as instructed. So, what is a socca?
