Orange Sunshine Coffee Cake
Magazines are one of my (many – fresh flowers, Anthro mugs, candles, pens) downfalls. I love them and really have a hard time saying no when I see a pretty cover. So imagine my happiness when I see two of my favorite things rolled into one. King Arthur Flour and a gorgeous new magazine call Sift .
Chickie Chocolate Brownie Truffles [Easter Kid Crafts]
Every now and again I get an idea in my head and the outcome turns out even better than I envisioned. I thought that my Chickie Chocolate Brownie Truffles would turn out cute, but be a pain to make. Nope, not even a little bit of a pain. In fact, these chicks were so easy and really fun. This ...
Flower Cupcakes [Roses, Zinnias, and Hydrangeas]
Even though there is still snow on the ground, it is beginning to feel like spring. We are decorating the house for Easter this afternoon, and there are vases with tulips and daffodils all around the house. I made these flower cupcakes and wanted to showcase how easy it is to change the way you can
Raw Sugar Mini Pavlovas with Maple Soaked Berries
One of the best parts about blogging is the community it creates. Nothing makes me happier or more proud than seeing my food blogger friends live out their biggest dreams. I never get tired of walking around the book store and knowing so many of the authors of the gorgeous cookbooks that are being
Snow Day Boredom Busters
We’ve had a lot of snow around these parts. (And expecting some more this weekend.) And that means lots of days off of school. We had a full week off and then a day here and there for another couple of weeks. The first few days we were fine to be lazy and watch movies and relax. But after day [...]
With all of the snow that we have been having here in Cape Cod, I have spent a lot of time cooking and baking. I have to be honest, it is really nice to cook and bake for the sheer pleasure of doing so. I spent time in my kitchen without having to worry about making it blog content or [...] The ...
How to Meal Plan When You Aren’t a Planner
(Pork Chops with Apples and Red Onion Sauce – Roasted Green Beans – Roasted Yukon Golds – made on the fly with no recipe) The idea of meal planning makes me want to break out in hives. It can feel so restrictive. I don’t know exactly what I am going to want to eat for dinner 5 days from now. [...]
Spinach, Sausage, and Tomato Strata
I want to love eggs. I get jealous when I see someone with a runny cracked egg on their plate. I wish that I was one of those people that could eat eggs any way, any time. They look really good to me, and eggs are one of my favorite things to cook. Poaching eggs is my idea of fun. It [...] The post
Love Potion Cocktails (Homemade Shirley Temples)
I just got back from an amazing weekend (and a few extra bonus days, thanks snow!) in San Diego. I went to the GoPro Workshop hosted by Blue Lily Photography . Wendy and Tyler have been taking our family pictures for the last three years (and will be again this fall). They are so fun, so amazing to
February is the new January.
That’s what I’m telling myself anyway. I had a really, really, wonderful 2014. I did so many of the things that I wanted to do. We moved to a place that we absolutely love, my family is flourishing, and I got to cross off quite a few of my life-list items. The end of the 2014 proved to be one [...]
