Coconut Almond Crunch Bark

Coconut Almond Crunch Bark

Is there anything worse than having to call customer service multiple times in one day!? Resulting in nothing but hours wasted on getting stuff back to normal, back to how it was intended to function/perform…Ugh. #firstworldproblems That’s how last Tuesday went.

Grape Poppers - recipe by @candiquik

Awkward moments. Life is filled with them. This seems especially true in my life. Maybe it’s me… It’s Thursday afternoon, I’m stuck in traffic. I tend to look at every car around me. I like to see what other people are doing/not doing. (I think it’s me.) Did I mention I’m a fairly nosy person? [Read more >>]

S'more Grahamwiches

4th of July…it’s approaching. And all too fast, because apparently MotherNatureMinneapolis can’t seem to get it’s act together. Somedays I feel like I live in Seattle, except for the brief period I was in Austin for the BlogHer Food Conference (more on that later).

Strawberry Lemon Truffle Cake

Strawberry Lemon Truffle Cakes | Miss CandiQuik

Strawberry cake, golden oreos, lemon zest, cream cheese, and vanilla candiquik. In that order. Oh yes. This recipe was inspired by Courtney from Pizzazzerie.

So, it happens to be that it is cold outside. Surprise, surprise Minnesota. What does that have to do with anything? Well, I’m glad you asked, because I couldn’t find a dang candy thermometer in the kitchen to save my life. Nor did I really want to go out into the cold to buy a new one.
