Merry & Bright Christmas Bulb Cookies

2014 is coming to a close, and if I were to sum up our year in two words it would be "Chaos & Crazy". Not that it's been a bad year, it has been a great year but so much going on in every which way, hardly a moment to stop. This year we're closing out the year with a bang as I wrap up the final edits of the book (eeekkkkkkkkk) and we fight our traditional Christmas flu. Yep, it's one of our crazy ... [ read more... ]

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... ]

Patriotic Swirl Cupcakes – Two Toned Icing

I've decided to call these cupcakes Patriotic Swirl Cupcakes instead of "______ Of July Cupcakes". Yea - I'm avoiding that holiday right now and pretending it's not really just two weeks out. It's not that I don't enjoy the "______ Of July", in fact I love it! We're just now completing our first full week of summer break and I can not express how much I've really enjoyed it. It's amazing what ... [ read more... ]

I just new I had to try out one of them with some extra flowers and well, we were long over due for a little cake around here. ... [ read more... ]

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... ]
