Deep Dish Peppermint Cookie

It's Christmas time! It's Christmas time! I just can't help but LOVE this time of year. While I try to keep cool on the outside and be you know, the responsible cool headed adult who isn't counting down the days at all...on the inside I'm totally Buddy the elf. I am SO pumped to start popping a little buddy the Elf into the DVD player. “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for ... [ read more... ]

Blueberry Pumpkin Cupcakes

I am so happy to be sharing a new recipe with you guys today, it feels like forever since I've really dug in and did some major blogging. Man does my heart miss it! I wish I could tell you guys we're all settled in Europe and I'm baking up a storm - the truth isn't anything close to that. The real deal? We've ate an embarrassing amount of BK and I've had more pastries in the last 4 weeks then ... [ read more... ]

Strawberry Pink-O-Ween Cupcakes

We are less then three weeks from moving across the world. Less then three weeks guys! I would be lying if I didn't admit my head has been in the European clouds lately. I'm trying so so so hard to be present here and enjoy the last few weeks in the desert, and the US. A few more moments of soaking in these mountains, strolls through Target, and random stops for hot fresh donuts. You know, the ... [ read more... ]

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookie Cake

You guys. Our big move to Europe is now just a couple months away. I don't even know where time has went, where did my year to prepare go? I have less then 30 days before the movers come to pack everything up and ship it away. Then we'll be left with an empty house for awhile. Lots of emptiness, and children, and dinners without table. Ehh I'm already losing my sanity thinking about it. And I have ... [ read more... ]

Strawberry Chip Funfetti Cookies

Let's be real here, today I have no words for today's post. Wait a minute…wait a minute…nope nothing. Nothing funny, or sweet, or sad…not even something remotely entertaining. But really are words necessary when it comes to cookies? I mean really. Strawberry. White chocolate chips. Sprinkles. Soft. Chewy. All in cookie form (bonus points for pink cuteness). So let's skip the chit chat and get ... [ read more... ]

Cranberry Sugar Cookie Pizza

Summer time, summer time! Here in Texas we are in full swing summer fun mode - how about you? Bbq's, bon fires, pool side fun, outdoor adventures...there's no short supply of summer fun around here. But no fear, our summer outings never lack dessert. Because life with dessert is always better, and really is it even an option?      With life speeding up at an accelerating ... [ read more... ]

Chocolate Hazelnut Pudding Cookies

Well hello there! After taking an extended break after baby #4 I am SO stoked to be back and blogging today. I plan on posting a "What we've been up to post" to fill you guys in on the last few months as I've been away…and what to look forward to here at MBC. But for now…let's talk chocolate…let's talk cookies…let's talk chocolate cookies! Sometimes when I'm in a need of a little baking I ... [ read more... ]

Blueberry French Toast Bake

Breakfast night is a staple in our house. Like maybe pancakes are in the rotation just a little too often. But when you have three little pancake loving kiddos and a newborn to throw in the mix, some nights you just need something easy, quick, and yummy! But what about muffins, french toast, or waffles? Why don't they ever get time at the dinner table? Sure they work great for a cozy Saturday ... [ read more... ]
