Marshmallow Hot Cocoa Pops

Marshmallow Hot Cocoa Pops

One of my favorite things about the holidays is the FOOD. Let’s get real here. No one really eats a boatload of peppermint or stuffs their faces with gingerbread during any other time of year. And if we’re being honest, I only really care about things like hot cocoa and truffles when the temps drop [Read more >>]

I can’t even believe that Thanksgiving is Thursday! (It is just me, or does it seem like time speeds by faster than ever when you’re an adult?!) As a kid, time seemingly crawled through the holiday season. It seemed like the days were longer, stretching time infinitely longer than it should be before Christmas. But [Read more >>]

Dessert “CONE-UCOPIAS”

Did any of you guys ever watch Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee when it was on the Food Network? I was weirdly obsessed with Sandra Lee’s show. One, because her recipes were great — I love that semi-homemade approach to cooking. And two, because her tablescapes were always so stunning. But I had to wonder: WHERE did [Read more >>]

A List of Things I Love About Fall… 1. The changing of the leaves. Those red trees? Phenomenal! 2. Boots, boots, boots! Easily my favorite type of shoe, yearround. 3. The chillier weather. It’s so nice to snuggle up! 4. Rain. 5. Daylight Savings Time. (Did you remember to turn your clocks back!?) An extra hour [Read more >>]

Choc Swirl Cinnamon Buns

Recently, I was traveling across the country and during my travel, would have to be in four different airports. Because of this, and the fact that my travel day started at the ripe ol’ time of 4am, I decided when I got to the first airport, I’d splurge on a food-court cinnamon roll. You know [Read more >>]

Candy Bag Bark

I really miss the ability to trick-or-treat. Now that I’m an adult, it’s not as socially acceptable anymore … which, if you think about it, is kind of bogus. I mean, I have a job. I pay my bills. I don’t get recess. I want candy, people! I think I’ve earned it, don’t you?! What’s [Read more >>]

Graveyard Chocolate Doughnuts

I really want to take this time to personally thank the person who invented breakfast pastries. Croissants, doughnuts, danishes, muffins, cinnamon rolls, sticky buns, bear claws … thank you. Because without you, breakfast would essentially be eggs and oatmeal. And if breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day, why not [Read more >>]

Witches Hats

For as long as I can remember, I was a HUGE Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen fan. I had all of their VHS tapes of their detective shows and movies, their Barbie dolls, their clothing line, everything. I played those poor VHS tapes until the actual tape was disintegrating from overexposure to singing twin girls. But [Read more >>]

Take 5 Bites

Is it just me, or is miniature food so much cuter and tastier than its larger counterparts? Think about it: petit fours are insanely more adorable than a larger cake.  Brownie bites are petite and sweet compared to a regular hunk of brownie.  And mini cupcakes?  Almost too cute to eat and definitely impossible to [Read more >>]

Salted Caramel & Pecan Turtles – 2 Ways

Salted Caramel & Pecan Turtles - 2 Ways

Have you noticed? I looove options. It all boils down to my decision making skills. I’m not typically an indecisive person. Ok, maybe sometimes. But when I know what I want, I am quick to make up my mind. However, when I know what I want AND THEN I can think of 5 jillion different ways [Read more >>]
