…Hi!

That very very awkward moment where you realize you haven’t posted on your wordpress in literally a month, but you have been posting diligently new photos on your instagram.

I am so so sorry! It’s just I haven’t really been baking anything new (except for different flavored macarons) or anything that is uniquely my own recipe.  I have also been focusing on making different themed treats and what not, so if you’re interested in those kinds  of blog posts, like blog posts on how to make my snoopy cookies or something, please let me know in the comment section below.  I will try and focus on posting a blog post at least once a week (not sure I can do more).

Please also let me know what you’d like to see i.e. if you see something I made on my instagram and want to know how I did it,  say “Hey Mimi! How did you do that thing?” and then I will try and make a blog post ASAP 🙂

Hugs and puppies!

Just a note

Hi,

For some reason, one of my photos has surfaced on Amazon as an Iphone case.  I did not give the seller any permission to use my photos nor am I receiving any money from them.  I have contacted Amazon about it and hope that they remove the item.

Please note that if you would like to use my photos, please always ASK first.  You can contact me at: lessaveursdemimi@gmail.com

Hugs and puppies,

Mimi

March 11: Pray for Japan

This day marks the anniversary of the Tsunami/Earthquake that ravaged Japan.

If you have the time, please go to Yahoo Japan and search 3.11. It only takes about a second. They are currently donating ten yen for every “3.11” search. It’s not a lot, but I think that every little bit helps.

While I personally did not experience this event, I was able to volunteer and take care of the children who were deeply affected through ASIJ’s Summer Day Camp program. The program offered multiple children from the disaster struck areas to come to Tokyo and participate in Summer Day Camp for free. Despite everything they went through, they were positive, energetic children who barely showed their pain and impressed me with their resilience. Despite losing their homes and in some cases, friends and family, they still filled my day with laughter, smiles and happiness.

I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer to take care of two wonderful girls from Ishinomaki for two weeks. I will never forget how one of the girls I hosted wanted me to stay with her until she fell asleep because she still had nightmares and I’m glad that my presence was able to ease her fears. I don’t think I will ever forget how much of an impact they made and how much they made me realize that even though we may feel like we lost everything, we can get through anything if we try and if we have the support of people who care. The two weeks that I had with these two girls from Ishinomaki were eye opening, a little trying, extremely rewarding and all together wonderfully fun. I hope that despite everything they were going through, I was able to make them forget the bad things about the tsunami for a while and remember and enjoy the good memories we had together at Summer Day Camp, baseball games and Disneyland.

Hugs and puppies,

Mimi

Update

I apologize for not posting recently.

I came down with a fever last monday and while I’m feeling better, I’ve been having fun playing catch up with all my work.  Since I work at a immigration law firm and the deadline to file H-1Bs is looming, I’ve been working pretty late, which leaves not a lot of time for baking.

I did however successfully make chocolate chip cookie shots a la Dominique Ansel, so hopefully I can find some time to sit down and write a blog post about that!

Hugs and puppies!
