Celebrating 25

I turned 25 last week. It was a big day. And some of my favorite places wanted to help me celebrate. I received 4 free gifts over email: Free dessert or empanadas at On the Border; Free dinner with the purchase of a dinner at Texas de Brasil; free dessert at The Melting Pot; and a free bath/body gift from Sephora. What could be better than that? All I had to do was give them some info and I got free stuff!

We also celebrated at Pazo in Baltimore, then later to Vacarro's for dessert. Yummy! Vacarro's makes the best cannolis in the world. You should try them.

I received 2 new cookbooks from my mother (she has encouraged my passion for cooking). They are by Anne Byrn. The Cake Mix Doctor and What Can I Bring? Perfect additions for my kitchen! I can't wait to try them out on my office and our dinner group.
