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 >>]

Cherry (Cake) Bombs!


It’s almost here!! The 4th of July is absolutely, positively, without a doubt my favorite holiday of the year! The activities of the day — grilling with friends, being pulled behind a boat while holding on for dear life (hopefully on a tube or waterskis), and watching the parade — as fun as they are, they pale in [Read more >>]

Don’t forget about Father’s Day on Sunday! Dads, grandfathers, and father figures all deserve to know how much we appreciate them and everything they have taught us. My dad has educated me well on the finer things in life such as fishing, old cars, Pete Townshend, and cheese (he’s from Wisconsin). Thanks, Dad! Since we can have more than [Read more >>]

Honey Thyme Truffles


There’s no doubt about it, farmers markets are one of the best parts of summer! I love nothing more than an early morning trip to the market with my coffee in hand. Remember how much I love coffee?

Coffee Shortbread Cookies


I wouldn’t need much if I was ever stranded on a desert island. Drop me off with a Kindle full of mystery books, a hammock, and my dog, Finley.  Oh, and can I please have an entire coffee shop on this desert island? There would never be a line early in the morning! (Not to mention no one else there to judge my all day caffeine consumption) [Read more >>]

No-Bake Apple Streusel Cheesecake


Memorial Day is only a few days away and you know what that means… summer has officially begun! First and foremost, we must remember those who have served and died for our country.

Cinco de Mayo Mexican Spice Truffles


I’m a huge fan of mixing sweet and heat and these Mexican Spice Truffles are indisputably one of my favorite recipes! It only seems appropriate that I share this with you on Cinco de Mayo. You’ll find yourself torn between eating the whole truffle in one bite, and making them last as long as possible. I think the latter is what [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 >>]

Margarita Cake Balls


Margaritas. You can get them blended, on the rocks, in a can with beer, in a salt-rimmed glass the size of your head, and in candy like suckers and jelly beans. Just when you think the margarita has been served up in all the ways possible, along comes… The Margarita Cake Ball. These little delights [Read more >>]
