Wine & Chocolate Cake Bites


Mother’s Day is on Sunday! Have you called your mother lately? I’ll wait while you do… I don’t even know how to begin thanking my mom for everything she has done for my sister and me. I mean, the woman gave us life, how do I thank her for that with a card?? “Happy Mother’s Day, [Read more >>]

Earth Day Treats and 11 Green Kitchen Tips!

Untitled design

Tree-hugger… Nature-lover… Hippie… Whatever you can think of along these lines, I’ve probably been called it. Even when I was little, my favorite show was Captain Planet (what a dreamboat…) and my favorite book was The Lorax by Dr. Seuss. It’s still one of my favorite books, so it only makes sense that this little, orange environmentalist makes [Read more >>]

Easter Best Peeps


Around this time every year, Peeps start to come out in hordes. They’re literally everywhere which is ok with me because I love these little creatures, but I love them even more when they’re coated in chocolate or vanilla. As I recently shared over on Instagram, there are two kinds of people when it comes [Read more >>]

Champagne Cake Pops and Bites


I’m a complete sucker for Valentine’s Day. It all began way back in Mrs. Goldberg’s kindergarten class when we got to decorate our Valentine’s Day boxes. We covered those babies with so much glitter and stickers they would have made Lisa Frank proud. In addition to working tirelessly to transform plain shoeboxes into something that really represented who you [Read more >>]

Easy Cookie Cutter Fudge


Hot holiday hint: everyone loves edible gifts. I like baking for people because one can only have so many pairs of slippers or mini bottles of scented lotion, but there really is no such thing as too many desserts. Especially around the holidays, am I right?! Fudge has always been one of my favorite holiday treats [Read more >>]

Star Wars Movie Party Cookies


A long time ago, in a kitchen far, far away…. It is a time of unrest. Star Wars: Episode VII was only days away from Awakening the Force and movie tickets burned holes in our pockets. A fierce battle raged between the forces of good, desserts seeking justice and peace, and the dark side, veggies seeking only to [Read more >>]

Pumpkin Truffles and a Cornucopia of Thanksgiving Desserts!


Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I’m sure many of you already have your table settings ready to go and menus planned down to the wine pairings. Then there’s me… I will be hosting a small Thanksgiving dinner at my house and don’t have the slightest clue what will be served alongside the turkey. However, I DO [Read more >>]

Pumpkin Spice Cake Bites


When it comes to determining the actual start of fall, there are three types of people: the summer-break-is-over-and-school-has-begun folks, team fall-equinox-is-the-official-start-of-the-season, and last but certainly not least we have the pumpkin-spice-latte-is-back-and-so-my-life-is-complete crew. Regardless of which party you belong to, can we all just agree that fall is pretty darn awesome? With fresh school supplies, Halloween, the smell of crunchy leaves, my birthday (please, [Read more >>]

Yard Line Cookies


Football season is almost here! I’ll admit, I don’t know a whole lot about football, but I like watching the games and it’s always a great excuse to gather friends and eat some good food! The extent of my football knowledge is the rules can be confusing and fantasy football is a big deal. That’s about it. So I always make sure I bring good treats to make up [Read more >>]

Piña Colada Macaroons


Yes, I like Piña Coladas, but do people actually enjoy getting caught in the rain? Really? I might be ok with it if I had a pina colada with me. With or without alcohol, it’s nearly impossible to have one of these delicious drinks and not think of a warm, sandy beach thanks to the perfect blend of coconut and pineapple. [Read more >>]

Ice Cream Pie


Contrary to popular belief, Minnesota isn’t really like the movie Fargo. We don’t all speak with a thick accent and once the snow that covers this frozen tundra finally melts, the summer can be almost unbearably hot and humid! This past week has been, and continues to be, practically tropical. As much as I love being in [Read more >>]
