Grasshopper Pie

Grasshopper Pie

I love all of the fun holidays in spring such as Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day.  They are simple days where it’s fun to do something special for the kids.  We don’t do anything big, but little special touches are fun and things that I hope the kids remember when they are older.  For […]

Buttermilk Brownies

Buttermilk Brownies

You just can’t go wrong with chocolate.  And these delicious buttermilk brownies are packed full of chocolate, and they have even been lightened up a bit.  Sounds like a dessert win to me! This month I am so excited to be guest posting over on Better Homes and Garden’s Delish Dish blog, and sharing some […]

Katherine Sabbath Inspired Cake

Katherine Sabbath Style Cake

I had SO much fun trying to recreate a Katherine Sabbath inspired birthday cake for my daughter’s birthday last week. If you don’t know who Katherine is, go check out her Instagram.  It’s kind of like Willy Wonka and Candy Land ran into a cool and ridiculously talented baker.  After cake stalking her Instagram for […]

Make Meaning Party

Make Meaning Party

When I asked my daughter what she wanted to do for her 12th birthday this year she replied, “make candles”.   That was an unexpected reply, but one that sounded like fun, so it was time to put together a candle making party. Before my oldest daughter was born, I made both soap and candles as […]

Tips For Baking With Kids

Baking With Your Kids

When you bake as often as I do, and have kids, it’s pretty common to get asked about baking with kids. While I don’t bake with my kiddos as often as some might think, when developing a recipe, you really don’t want an extra 5 tablespoons of baking powder dumped in by your assistant! I […]

Oatmeal Packet Pancakes

Oatmeal Packet Pancakes

One of my all time favorite things to have for breakfast is pancakes.  Pancakes are such a delicious way to start the day, and you can really customize them with mix-ins and toppings.   A nice stack of fresh, hot pancakes are pretty darn perfect if you ask me. I could probably eat pancakes every day, […]

Caramel Brownies And Cleaning Messes

Caramel Brownies

I love a good brownie, and I really love a good caramel brownie.  A warm, chocolatey, messy, gooey brownie, full of caramel, melting chocolate and topped with ice cream.  The kind of brownie that, at least for me, is usually a mess to make, and if my kids are involved, always a mess to eat! […]

Breakfast Pizza

Breakfast Pizza Recipe

I love breakfast.  Morning, noon or night, breakfast is always a good idea in my book.  When I’ve had a busy day (and maybe haven’t planned for dinner), breakfast for dinner is always a quick way to get a delicious meal on the table that my whole family will love.  My daughters love biscuits, and […]
