We have had two birthdays this month, Mom’s, on the first, and Lydia’s, on the sixteenth.
These are Mom’s birthday pictures.
Dinner: pancetta, white bean, and Swiss chard pot pies. It was sooo good. The delicious, flaky crust was the best part.
Mom’s birthday this year was a “Smitten Kitchen” birthday. All the recipes came from this cookbook.

My beautiful mom.
Elaine and I had two different cakes we wanted to make, and we could not decide which to make, so we made both: Smitten Kitchen’s Bee Sting cake and Tiny but Intense Chocolate Cake.
And these are Lydia’s birthday pictures.
This was the cutest looking white chocolate truffle that Mom got for Lydia.
