Bay Area Outting: Muir Woods

Muir woods

We’re pretty spoiled living in Northern California.  We have beautiful scenery across the map.  From the mountains to the beaches and everything in between, everything about California is beautiful.  But of course being born and raised here, I may be a bit biased.  Muir Woods is a stunning destination to explore the giants of the forest, sequoias and redwoods.  It’s a bit of a drive from our home, but well worth it.  It’s gorgeous, serene, and very refreshing.  With the trees towering above, I’m reminded how very small I am on this huge planet.  There are many beautiful trails to hike, but we mostly kept to the forest floor because of the girls.  On this particular day, we didn’t actually know our destination … Continue reading

However, they were hardly edible and extremely heavy. Me and my over mixing. So I decided that I’d try one last time.  If I fail then I’ll know that baking cakes is not for me.
