This cold weather calls for a warm Strawberry Cobbler with ice cream on top, of course. HELLO strawberry season, I am here! I am so crazy about strawberries, specially strawberries grown in my home state! Strawberries are in season and Fresh From Florida’s strawberries are in stores now! Ready to go home with you and straight into this amazingly warm Strawberry Cobbler. I LOVE cobblers! These super fresh strawberries gave it such a magical touch. Have you noticed I’ve been baking lately!? This weather has been keeping me very close to the oven.


Fruity Pebbles Tres Leche Cake

It is cold in Miami! Can you believe it!? It’s like 52 degrees. Don’t even tell me for a second that 52 degrees isn’t cold enough. I won’t listen! Let me enjoy my almost super cold weather. Thank you. I have my Uggs on and everything. I don’t care. It is what it is. How cold is it where you live? I’m sure the weather will go right back to 90 degrees here by the afternoon but until then, I will enjoy this amazing weather. If you are currently in a place where it is below 52 degrees, put on a coat and dance Bachata all over your living room. Trust me, after 2 songs, you’ll be warm or more like extremely hot and needing a shower. You’re welcome.

To set the mood, I am currently listening to Happy Holiday by Andy Williams. Too early? I think NOT. I’m so excited for the holidays, like you can’t even begin to imagine. There is something about the holiday season that brings out the best in everyone. I totally wish It would get cold here in Florida, but we don’t get cold weather till February and when I say cold, I mean 60 degrees. I’m sure some of you are like WHAT!? Yes, it is pretty hot year-round. I promise the moment it hits under 70 degrees, everyone here, is wearing a coat with gloves. Me!? I wear my Uggs, which my friends laugh about. I just HAVE to wear them. Even if it is for one day! Plus, it counts because I take a picture in them, so it looks like it’s cold over here, when I’m most likely wearing them with a sleeveless shirt. That’s Miami for you…..
