SPring Flower Cookies

We have a lot of flowers/bushes to plant in our backyard this spring. Last summer, we expanded and reshaped some of our garden beds in the back and front of our house, and discussed taking a year to think about what we wanted to plant and how we’d want to landscape everything. Spoiler alert: we […]

Valentine’s Day Cake Pops

Just one more sweet recipe before Valentine’s Day! I’m a little relieved because all of this sugar around the house is killing me. Target’s valentine section got me good and I find myself digging for all the candy bags in our pantry. It doesn’t help that I’m in full hibernation mode over here. It’s been […]

‘Tis the season for gingerbread houses and dressing up all types of breakfast. Breakfast is just better when there is icing and sprinkles involved!

Goat Cheese, sage & bacon Turkey Cheeseball

No holiday is complete without cheese. None! I’m normally all about the cheese boards, but the thought of this turkey cheeseball was so fun in my head that I had to put it together. Thanksgiving can be a holiday that embraces the cheeseball, right? Better than mockolate! I’m giving air fives to all of my […]

Chocolate witch hats

Earlier this week we played ghost and booed some of our friends! It’s a tradition I always look forward to. I still remember the first time I took Peyton when she was two-years-old… she cried when we left every house because she didn’t get the concept of dropping off treats to surprise our friends! It’s […]

American Flag Brownies with Mascarpone Frosting

I’m back at it with another Fourth of July recipe! This my second one this week, which is pretty impressive considering I’ve been extremely silent around here lately. Holidays always motivate me and get my creative mind going, so after this post, you will likely not hear from me again for awhile – ha! Making […]
