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 >>]

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.

In addition to working tirelessly to transform plain shoeboxes into something that really represented who you [Read more >>]

Personal Vanilla Berry Cream Pies

Personal Vanilla Berry Cream Pie (in mason jars!) from Miss CandiQuik

Ok, maybe these aren’t sooo “personal” sized. Instead, you could grab 2 spoons and share - or not. They’re actually not all that much more than a large piece of pie.

Golden Lemon Truffles


I was thinking of memories I have from growing up…simple memories. Memories I love looking back on. Things such as: Dozing off to sleep to the sound of grown-ups talking in the other room. My “talking” A.G. teddy bear. I was the only one who spoke his muffled language. Racing to answer the phone (when friends – not [Read more >>]

Weddings, Brothers, and Sweets.


“What do all these things have in common!?” I’m about to tell you. But first, I didn’t really expect to be posting this kind of blog post, for… I dunno, a long time. A reallyyy long time. Anyway, what I mean to say is – my brother is still like… 12 years old in my head. It was just [Read more >>]
