Fall Cookie Flower Bouquet

I am so giddy to be posting my first fall treat of the year! Even if it's still scorching hot here in the desert I can't help but catch on to the excitement of the changing season.

But even more so fall is a sign of the oncoming holidays, soon ... [ read more... ]

Uncle Sam Rice Krispie Pops

Can you guys believe the 4th of July is this weekend? This weekend! Yea, me either, I've been a total slacker in the red, white, and blue blogging department. Mostly because we'll be spending this year on leave visiting family! I've been prepping the house, 3 kiddos, and 1 doggy for the trip to the north. I can't wait to spend 2 weeks of summer fun kicked back and relaxing with family. Who am I ... [ read more... ]

Patriotic Swirl Cupcakes – Two Toned Icing

Daisy Cookie Bouquet

It's true, April showers bring May flowers! Unless you live in the desert and you haven't seen rain but once in six months, then you bake some! Plus as I've 100 times...the only green thumb I have comes from food coloring. Fact. So even if we weren't currently living in the desert, growing them isn't quiet an option! So I'm not exactly a gardener but I do love to bake up fruits, veggies, and ... [ read more... ]

Sunflower Cupcakes

It's really hard to believe "spring" is here. And not just because our friends and family all over the north are still seeing snow, our new location in the south has us questioning if there ever was a winter and feeling like it's summer already! I'm not so sure spring really exists here?? Although I don't miss the insane amounts of snow from the frozen tundra (aka upstate New York) I do miss that ... [ read more... ]
