Thumbprint Cookies

A couple of weeks ago, a dear friend of mine visited for the weekend, and while she was here, she commented that I should make thumbprint cookies with my homemade strawberry jam. For those of you who are unfamiliar with thumbprint cookies, they are shortbread cookies with a little well in the middle, filled with … Continue reading

Sweetheart Popcorn

At my niece’s birthday party back in November, I had some zebra popcorn for the first time in years. For those who are unfamiliar with this delectable treat, zebra popcorn is caramel corn drizzled with dark and white chocolate. It is so addictive. Since then, I’ve wanted to make some. When I saw this delicious-looking and easy zebra … Continue reading

Strawberry Lovebugs

The other night, I was casting about Pinterest for some cute Valentine’s Day treats and came across these adorable strawberry and chocolate ladybugs from Wing It Vegan.

Cookies ‘n Cream Cupcakes

My older son, Jack, is five today! It’s bittersweet — on one hand, I’m so proud of the big boy he’s become and amazed by how much he’s grown in the last five years (and, let’s be honest, I’m also glad that he’s more physically independent now; sippy cups, Pull-Ups, and huge messes at every … Continue reading

Just in time for Fourth of July — patriotic strawberries! This is another one of those ideas that’s been floating around on the Internet, so most of you have probably seen it, but I’m sharing it anyway because I love how easy it is and how adorable the results are!

Oreo Monkey Muffins

OK, OK, I know what you’re thinking: Didn’t you just make an Oreo cake? How many Oreo desserts can one family eat? Well, thanks to my husband’s intense love of Oreos, there can never be enough sandwich cookie-themed treats. For Father’s Day, I made my favorite — frozen Oreo monkey bars in muffin form. I … Continue reading

Ice Cream Cone Surprise

A few months ago, my sister, June, texted me a picture of a chocolate cupcake baked in an ice cream cone, knowing it was exactly the type of thing I’d make. I fell in love with the idea — an edible cupcake liner! Cake hidden in a cone! Ice cream and cake in one! When … Continue reading
