Cupcakes and Cutlery is a resource for the busy modern gal. Full of easy dinner ideas, simple cocktails and mom life tips, this food blog, with a side of SoCal lifestyle is your go-to place for everything you need to help you keep your cool.
My name is Sharon Garofalow. I make things. I eat things. I mother things.
On the site, you’ll always find simple solutions to help you be an awesome wife and mother and not lose yourself in the process. With school-aged children (and I’m not talking 3 hours of kindergarten because you don’t get a full 3 hours to yourself…) comes more freedom to put a little bit of focus back on yourself and the things you are passionate about.
Everything I do is because I’m a mom. And I want to help make your mom life a little easier. But let’s be clear. Sometimes I like to be a mom, without my kids, in Palm Springs. I fully believe that moms can have lives and interests of their own and should take a break and recharge when they need to. The key is to balance it all while never losing sight of your goal; which is raising rad little humans.
And we’ll talk about cocktails and wine. Because parenthood.
Born, raised and currently residing in Orange County, CA I look forward to sharing my local loves, fast and easy recipes, quick beauty hacks, how to deal with aging gracefully (or not, there’s no judgment here!) and tips and ideas to make your job and “mom” a little easier. I love being a boy mom (born 4/06 and 12/08) to these kind-hearted kids and won the lottery in the husband department. Welcome. It’s nice to meet you.
