A few days ago, I had a party to attend. I was told to bring something sweet. I really didn’t wish to bring a store-bought product. And then, a light bulb moment came. I remembered that I had some left over assorted candied fruits. These fruits were spiked with good Jamaican white rum along with some fruity burgundy wine from last Christmas.

I thought, “This should do!” After all, I baked these last Christmas and they were a hit with loved ones. I immediately knew I made the right choice when I opened my package and everyone rushed over to claim their perfectly round cupcake. Like Christmas, everyone was filled with great joy. Their sweet-tooth problem was solved. I realized then and there that sometimes, all one needs is a fruity spiked cupcake.

In my head I chimed, “Ho, ho, ho!”

Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
