Happy Friday, friends! Here's something that I hope will make you smile - candy lipsticks! Okay - they actually look more like candy Lip Smackers when presented in these lip balm tubes, but with flavors like Lemon Sugar Cookie, Blue Cotton Candy, Green Candy Apple and Raspberry Sugar , I think ...
Large Batch Strawberry Cupcakes
Whenever I'm asked to make cupcakes for a crowd, I turn to this recipe. The cakes are always moist and tender, and if you go the extra mile and fill them with strawberry jam, they taste like they're from a fancy bakery. The recipe yields about 5 dozen cupcakes, and in my experience, leftovers are

Today feels like a good day because I get to show you the cover of my new book! I also get to tell you a little more about what's inside. It's been a long time coming - a whole year in the making - and I couldn't be more excited to announce that Sea Salt Sweet is now available for pre-order ! ...
Lemon Sorbet Punch
Are you having a busy week? I sure am, and with all of the prom and graduation pictures in my Facebook feed, I'm guessing some of you are too. Personally, I feel like I've purchased one of everything in the gift bag and greeting card aisles this week. Around here we've had birthdays to celebrate ...

Salted Caramel Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake
Spring has given us many brisk mornings. I've been waking up chilled despite the heavy comforter on the bed and two warm little dogs under each arm. It's made me relish that first cup of steaming hot coffee, and it's changed my mood from bright and citrusy to cozy and cinnamon-spiced. There's a lot
Mexican Sweet Buns (Conchas)
I am a pastry devotee through and through so I'm not sure why it took me so long to make these delicious Mexican sweet buns. I've had them bookmarked for ages. They have just about everything I want in a pastry. They are soft and cottony at the center with a crunchy sweet coating, and (this is ...
DIY Gelatin Confetti Sprinkles
Hey sprinkle-shakers! I'm so excited to share this new project with you. I love sprinkles of all kinds, but my favorite sprinkles of all are those teeny-tiny edible stars that look like confetti and come with a not so teeny-tiny price tag. I just adore them, and I will probably always keep at least
Mango Boba (Bubble) Tea
Oh, delicious bubble tea. I could subsist on those sweet, chewy tapioca pearls. This is a problem because the only place that serves it on my side of town has recently decided to use old boba in their tea. Fresh boba is chewy, soft and lightly sweet. Expired boba is rock-hard and nearly ...
