Cookie Tulip Fields

Sometimes a story is told better backwards, so let's try that today and work our way from the end. I had just completed these tulip cookies and I wanted to gift some to our German neighbors. We haven't really gotten to know them yet, as they only know a little English and our German is well barely there. Cookies, well, they are understood in every language. And you don't exactly give cookies ... [ read more... ]

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... ]

Strawberry Pancake Mini Donuts

You guys I miss pancakes. Like seriously, I need a pancake night in my life right now. Warm, fluffy, buttery pancakes drizzled in maple syrup...yummmmm. Remember how many times I've talked about pancake night here at the Miller's and how it's a total staple? Yea - that hasn't happened in months. Sadly as part of our European transition I no longer have a griddle that works here and this new ... [ read more... ]

Game Night With Krusteaz!

We're really starting to feel like "home" here in Germany. But let me tell you we definetly adjusted to the desert weather these last few years in Texas - it's SO COLD here! With that being said we haven't been able to venture out much as I was hoping by now, but we have had SO much family time at home which I am truly loving every minute of. One of the ways we are keeping the kiddos occupied ... [ 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... ]
