Mint Oreo Cookie Bark - @candiquik

Is there anything better than mint & chocolate?! Besides of course chocolate and peanut butter. These Mint Oreo cookies are quickly become a vice of mine. I’m not even an Oreo person typically, until you put the mint flavored ones in front of me. Okay, or the birthday cake flavored ones. This year for St. [Read more >>]

Frog Cookies

Cute Frog Cookies

The minute I saw these Oreo Frogs on Made To Be a Momma’s site, I knew I had to create a version of them! How stinkin’ cute are they? I love the tongue on her frogs, but I wanted to change them up a bit. These would really be great for any occasion – plus, [Read more >>]

Something that I’m *quite frankly* not loving right now: Facebook changin’ things up. March 30th = new layout for facebook pages. Bah humbug.

I’m not Irish – nor do I really get into the corned beef thing. But I’ll totally make you green cake bites, green latte’s, and these adorable shamrock pretzels that I found on Sun Scholars. She kept the little holes in the pretzels open but I went ahead and double dipped to completely cover these once [Read more >>]
