Cafe Mocha Cake

Today I have good news, a little secret, and a cake to share! The good news is…I recently found out after moving to Europe that I do not have an addiction to coffee. That’s right! I actually have an addiction to cream and sugar. Ha! Seriously though, ordering coffee here is like can I have a cup of coffee and like 24 creams and sugars please? They like their coffee dark, strong, and tiny. Which is ... [ read more... ]

French Fry Cookies – April Fool’s Day!

Scene - I'm picking the girls up from the bus stop. The bus stop happens to be in front of a Burger King. Every day one of the girls asks to stop and get fries for snack, every day I say no. Kiddo #1: Mom can we get fries today? Me: No, but I made fries today! Kiddo #2: Like you FRIED fries? Me: No, I baked them. Kiddo #3: SO like from a bag? Me: No, I made them from scratch! ...

Spiral Spring Cookies – And A Little Chat

It's SPRING! SPRING. Can we just say it together? Ahhhhhhhhh. For some of you that may be ah-chou! But even if you are battling those pesky allergies I bet your still enjoying the fresh air, warm sun, and chirp of the birds once again. Isn't it funny how we get excited for each new season, but as time moves on the newness wears off and we're ready to move on again to the next one? Or maybe it's ... [ read more... ]

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... ]
