    Totally stunning. My favorite recipes always stem from good childhood memories. I hope you are having a warm and wonderful holiday season, Cynthia! Sending you all the best wishes <3

    so many good things going on: swirls, hazelnut coffee swirls, cute potato bundles, dads. and love that you made this as a mini cheesecake; usually i mean to share what i bake with others, but sometimes it just stays in my house, and then oops we ate half of it already. so a 6″ is less damaging than a 10″ (;

    The happiest of bdays to your dad!! I love this post so much–it reminds me of my own dad getting up every day to help kickstart our days, and even now he never likes to have a fuss made about him…he just likes to do things quietly from behind the scenes. Thank you for sharing this wonderfully inspired recipe and post! Also, I keep forgetting that LA is your new hometown too now <3 yayyy~ happy holidays, lady!

    That is the absolute sweetest photograph of your dad holding your sleeping potato bundle on his lap! I hope you frame it! In fact, make prints!!! And wish him a most happy birthday for me!

    This makes me miss my dad and drool at the same time. My dad is much like yours, in how you describe him (replace coffee with tea) so i totally get your family’s joy at getting to be close by again. It’s truly wonderful and I’m happy for you.

say hello!
