Tranquil Dreams is her POST name and comes from the translation of her Chinese name. She says, “Life is about dreams and reaching for things that make you happy“… sounds like a great idea to me!…

Her passions are… Photography, Baking & Cooking, Writing, Movies… All things I like… so no wonder we became connected…

I’m to answer these few questions and then pass on the “Sweet” Award…

Cookies or cake?… I’m pretty picky with my cookies and cake… Has to be just the right one before I’ll eat them…

Fruity… nutty… chewy cookies are my fave…

Moist plain cake… no frosting… It also can have nuts/fruit in it…

Chocolate or vanilla?… Here we go again… I like both depending on what the sweet is… Chocolate or vanilla fudge has me… Chocolate ice cream

What is your favorite sweet treat, cheesecake or frozen yogurt?… Like both again… but, would find the frozen yogurt more refreshing in the summertime and cheesecake more tantalizing to my taste buds in the winter…

When do you crave sweet things the most?… After eating something salty… After finishing a meal…just a bite will do… at night with a hot drink k6581443

“Mail Order Sweetness!”

I received a brochure (catalog) in the mail at least 30 years ago… No, I’m not going to say I still have it… That one is long gone…but, I continue to get them in the mail every year… It comes around the middle of November … and it actually hasn’t changed a lot since that first one so long ago… It probably has a few newer items… the prices are a little higher… but, the Quality is still the same!… Very Good!… I order pretty little cakes called Petits Fours  from it… that come in delicious flavors of lemon , strawberry , chocolate,vanilla, red velvet, carrot … and numerous others… They are covered in a sumptuous coating of crunchy light frosting with a pretty decoration on each… Bon Bons are another item I order… As you can tell we eat some…but, I buy them for special gifts also… Then there are the cheeses and sausages … candies… fruits… crackers… condiments like spicy mustard… varieties of crunchy nuts … Some are wrapped in pretty gold boxes… others are presented in boxes resembling Santa or a snowman … Towers, as they call them with a variety of all of their treats… tied with pretty ribbons … The postman delivered the order I had placed today and remarked , “Someone must really like you!”… I just said, ” Thanks”, because my family had spotted those pretty red boxes and were already asking, “Did you buy any for us?…”Can we open any now?”… “Of course!”, I say…It would be torture if you couldn’t bite into one of those soft little cakes  with so much flavor… All I hear is,”YUM!”… I guess by now you are wondering or maybe you already know the name of this neat company with the enticing booklet of unforgettable goodies … It is “Swiss Colony“… and they know I’ll always be one of their best customers… at least at Christmas time!
