Miscellaneous, Viviana's Kitchen

Alright, first thing’s first.

For all you photophiles (what’s the actual word though?) who wanna see more of my photography, you’re in luck! I decided to make an Instagram account for just my photography, @vivianapodinaphotography, after finding out you can now link your accounts and switch between them easily. I’m pretty excited and geeked and thrilled by the small gathering of followers I’ve already accumulated (18 with just my first photo, how cool!) and I’m looking forward to discovering more artists and photographers and being discovered by others as well.

That said, it’s almost Valentine’s Day and that means I’ll be doing absolutely nothing differently from any other day of the year because I’m #single4lyfe. But I thought this would be a great occasion to gift myself something I’ve wanted for a while – new workout shoes! I found this gorgeous orchid purple pair at DSW on clearance and they’re SO COMFORTABLE. I’m in love.


On my way home I also stopped by Natalie’s Bakery to pick up bread and indulged myself in some V-Day treats. Picked up some cannolis, a little strawberry heart tart, and a slice of honey sea salt pie (not pictured). I haven’t tried the pistachio cannoli or the tart yet, but the orange zest cannoli and honey pie are superb.

Hope you guys have a good weekend! Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you regardless of relationship status. <3


Chocolate Dipped Coconut Cakes

My favorite story about this particular recipe is that my mom and my dad’s mom slaved over making hundreds of these the night before my mom and dad got married.

But I do have new content TO YOUR EYES.

Here’s a photo from a couple years ago. I’m still very much in love with it.

Canadian Club


My mom’s Canadian co-worker brought everyone little alcoholic chocolates a few days ago and my mom gave me this little guy and a Jim Beam one which I’ve already eaten. Isn’t it adorable!? Bonus pic at the bottom from my Instagram, (@lovelikeangels) follow me for more pics!
