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 >>]

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 >>]

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 >>]

Shark Fin Cupcake Toppers


In case you weren’t already aware… it’s Shark Week! This is the one week of the year where we adults are given the opportunity to collectively and unapologetically nerd out over these awesome fish. Be honest, how many hours of shark-themed shows and movies will you be watching this week? Making cupcakes with these cupcake toppers is a [Read more >>]

Churro Chow {Gluten Free}


I got the idea for Churro Chow from a coworker and I am so excited about it! Not only does it taste exactly like a churro, but it might be one of the easiest treats you could ever make. It’s addictively good and I can’t help but think of my little sister and the summer my family [Read more >>]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Toffee

Chocolate Chip Cookie Toffee

I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m just not going to maintain a diet during the holidays. My attempts will be futile and I should just give up now. I mean, let’s face it: yesterday I kinda sorta engorged myself on turkey, stuffing, and the like. And today, I’m having leftovers of the same meal [Read more >>]

Pecan Pie Truffles

Pecan Pie Truffles

Believe it or not, there was once a time in my life where I disliked pecan pie. (Yeah, it was kind of a dark time.) For some reason, it just didn’t ring my bell the same way Dutch Apple or Banana Cream did. I figured I’d just live out the rest of my days drinking [Read more >>]
