Danish Puff Recipe + Hello!

Hi there! Welcome to my blog, Hello Little Home. I’m Ginnie.

Me and my husband, JoelMe and my husband, Joel.

I started Hello Little Home, because I was looking for a place to share some of my favorite things: design, food, fashion, travel … the list goes on. I’m also working on turning my tiny NYC apartment into a home, so I’ll be sharing that, too.

Here’s a little treat for checking out my blog. My mom had a serious sweet tooth when I was a kid (must be where I get it from), and she was a great baker. Her Danish Puff is one if my favorites. I think you’ll like it, too!
