Back to School

We just finished the first week of school and everything seems to be going well.  The kids walked to school without complaining.  They also like their new teachers.  Dare I say they’re even excited about them?  And most importantly I made responsible lunches all week long.  (This surely will not last long.)  These are the great successes in …

Cookie Disguises

Not only are these cookies tasty, you can play with them too.  How cool is that? Luckily I had some volunteers.

Happy 4th of July

This holiday brings a swell of gratitude.  There are tons of posts that say it better.  We’ve decided to show it in cookies.  Here’s our firework tribute in cookies. Happy 4th!  Be safe.  Keep all your fingers.

Breakfast Pizza

I’m probably one of the luckiest people in the world.  A dear friend also happens to be my hairdresser.  Not only do I get the benefit of enjoying fabulous cocktails and great conversation when I get my hair done, she pretty much rocks hair color and does a slammin’ cut. In the chair we gab …

Too Much of a Good Thing?

There’s no denying Pinterest’s awesome power.  Tia picked up many recipes on there to supply her Treat of the Week challenge last year.  There’s no denying there have been lots of hits and some misses in searching through the oodles of images. One trend I see the most in Pinterest, and the one I find the …

Swimming with Seahorses

The sun has made enough of an appearance for us to consider it might be warm enough to go swimming.  We are very lucky because our friends have a lovely pool.  This holiday weekend they have even been gracious enough to invite us over for cocktails and swimming.  Adults do the cocktails.  Kids do the swimming. To …

What Time Is It?

Adventure Time! Most of you probably have no idea who these characters are.  They are Finn the Human and Jake the Dog from the Cartoon Network hit series “Adventure Time.”  It’s a cute little show I commit to watching every week with my children.  It’s our thing. These cookies were last-minute, off-the-cuff, I-have-some-leftover-icing-to-use creations.  I …

Less Mess = More Fun

One summer tradition in our household is camping.  We load up the truck, head to the woods, and pop up the tent trailer to have uninterrupted family time.  The last thing we want is a weekend filled with stress. With traditions, we bring our childhood memories to pass on to the next generation.  Who doesn’t remember …

Happy Mother’s Day

Hats off to all the moms out there.  I know I put my mom through many tests when growing up.  And she wishes them all back on me with my own daughter who already mimics some of my younger moves.  Every year I struggle to find something my mother doesn’t already have or can easily …

A Splash of Red

Who doesn’t love red?  Either in a pair of fabulous shoes, a sexy lipstick, or a rockin’ hair color, red is a statement.  It’s no different in the baking world. Red Velvet cake has taken the world by storm.  The brightly colored inside shares the feels of a chocolate cake with its small part of …
