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. Hers are way cuter than mine, but I thought these turned out pretty well, anyway, especially for my first attempt!  I guess I could have waited for the second … Continue reading

Christmas Gift Baskets, 2012 Edition!

It’s that time again — I’m in full gift basket mode! This year’s version is a lot like last year’s, with the exception of sugar cookies subbing in for banana bread, and the addition of furikake Chex mix to some of the baskets.   The contents are (click on each item for the recipe): Reindeer … Continue reading

East Meets West: Furikake Chex Mix

It’s December, which means I’ve now entered into full-on gift basket mode! You may recall the Christmas gift baskets I made last year; I still love the collection of reindeer Oreo pops, hot cocoa mix, chocolate stirring spoons, pretzel treats and banana bread, so I don’t intend to change things up too much this year. … Continue reading

Adorable Oreo Turkeys

Recently, I was looking for a cute, fun Thanksgiving treat to make for the kids. You all know I’m a fan of cake pops, but since I’m going to do the reindeer ones again for Christmas, I wanted to do something a bit easier. I decided on these adorable Oreo turkeys from Our Best Bites. … Continue reading

Mummy Dogs

A couple of days ago, my friend Jennell (of Oreo monkey muffins fame) sent me the link for these Weelicious mummy dogs. She said she thought I’d like them, and she was totally right. These are easy, fun and cute — what’s not to love? I didn’t follow the original recipe exactly, but it’s pretty … Continue reading

Fourth of July Strawberries

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! I saw the recipe in … Continue reading

Cute Easter Centerpiece

For the past few Easters, I’ve seen pictures floating around the Internet of adorable centerpieces where there are somehow Peeps and jellybeans in a vase of tulips. Not being very creative at heart, I had no idea how Peeps and tulips could be in a vase of fresh flowers without getting completely soggy, but a … Continue reading

Easter-Themed Pretzel Treats

Just a quick post to share the Easter-themed pretzel treats I made last night. These are the same as the Christmas pretzel treats I made a few months ago (click on the bold text to be taken to the recipe), except I used pastel-colored M&Ms instead of red and green ones. By the way, how … Continue reading

Let’s Do Lunch: Hop To It!

Easter’s only five days away, so of course I had to send Jack to school with a bunny-themed lunch today. I totally copied the Hoppy Friday lunch from Keeley McGuire, who always makes beautiful lunches for her daughter (thank you for the inspiration, Keeley!). Mine didn’t turn out as nicely, but Jack could tell they … Continue reading
