Aunt Brandi

We had so much exciting stuff happen this weekend!

It’s always hard to sit down to work on a Monday morning after a fun weekend like this one.


But coffee and oatmeal banana splits help ;)


This is as close to a real banana split I can get! Banana, cinnamon oatmeal, strawberries, pineapple, and dark chocolate dreams pb.


Yum :)


Most exciting parts of my weekend?

Nick’s sister had her baby, so Nick and I are an aunt + uncle for the first time!!!

And – these are some of the things I helped make while working with the Pastry Chef this weekend.


I helped make these chocolate “espresso” cups that get filled with a chocolate mousse, and I dipped a bunch of these espresso shortbread cookies!


So much fun!


What did you do this weekend?

  10. Very fun. The cup is adorable. I’m also in love with your banana split oatmeals and really need to make it some day. I’m thinking some seeds from a vanilla bean in the oatmeal would take it over the top in emulating the real thing.

  11. aweeee that heart is so beautiful. wouldnt it be fun to share it with sumone.. like me? we could break off half- i call the chocolate side tho hehe.

    im gonna make a split like that soon! ive always loved the idea of putting the oatmeal ontop of the bananas versus bananas ontop of the oatmeal!
