J’adore #57

It's been awhile since I have done a straight-up old school style J'adore (you have to go back to Dec 2013 for #56!) and in the spirit of the recently resurrected Saturday Six, I am returning to some classic Misadventures with Andi series posts! Also since all my series badges have my old look and feel I will have to make due with playing around with Canva (I am totally addicted) until I have new … [Read more...]

Oh la la, Godiva!

I have been selected as a GODIVA Ambassador and this is a post written by me on behalf of GODIVA. Delicious. Decadent. Indulgent. I am so worth it. Okay so maybe trying every single flavor of GODIVA's new Trufflelata line is a "little" overindulgent, but how could I refuse? The kind folks at GODIVA invited me to a special event at one of their four boutique in San Francisco where I … [Read more...]

Godiva Summer of Love (and Chocolate!)

I have been selected as a GODIVA Ambassador and this is a post written by me on behalf of GODIVA. My Chocolate Story I grew up in a household full of sweet tooths. My mother was quite fond of chocolate, so I'd guess you'd say that my appreciation for all the decadence derived from the cocoa bean is in the genes! By no means did I grow up deprived, but my chocolate experiences were limited … [Read more...]

36 Hours in Portland

At the beginning of October I went to Portland for 36 hours.  I was there for work and my schedule was packed but when I was not working I was eating (and even sometimes when I was working!).  I love Portland and the Pacific Northwest in general.  As I have mentioned before this area of the US feels like home to me.  It is the region that Mr. Misadventures and I will mostly likely retire to one … [Read more...]

J’adore #48 (Candy Edition 2)

I am not sure if it is coming off the holiday season or if it's because we are closing in on Valentine's Day, but I have candy on the brain! If I ate as much candy as I am currently thinking about I would be 500 pounds! Problem is, I have already  tried several of these items over the past month! I am hoping that putting together this J'adore where candy is the star, it will get it out of my … [Read more...]

J'adore #34

I got some bandwidth! (See my post from yesterday to understand why this excites me!) That means that I can bring you another edition of J'adore, my series cool things, or yummy things, or just plain interesting things that I have spotted during my internet travels. Ready? Here we go! I am a big fan of salted caramel. I've seen its application in candy, brownies, etc but I like the thought of … [Read more...]

French Friday – Paris My Sweet

I cannot think of a sweeter return of French Friday than to share with you Parisian blogging pal Amy Thomas's new book Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light (and Dark Chocolate).  I met Amy in October 2009 at the Paris Bloggers Meet-up I helped organize with Erica of Haven in Paris.  I knew about her blog God, I Love Paris, but as I don't actually live in Paris, I was not aware of her full … [Read more...]

J'adore #26

Time for another episode of J'adore where I share things I have spotted on my blog travels and currently "adoring."  As the holidays approach I am sure that I will start spotting even more cute finds.  I am not a big shopper, so for me this is my version of window shopping.  Although I do try many of the food items I come across (small obsession!).  Hope you adore something too! I use … [Read more...]

J'adore #25

A mini-version of J'adore today, one with sweet treats I have been eyeing.  Must be because of Halloween coming up, but I am seeing a lot of things that are tempting me! It is the start of the eating season, next thing you know it is Thanksgiving then Christmas! I thought I would share these as I sort of have a food-themed week to celebrate Blog Action Day which took place on Sunday.  I am … [Read more...]
