Pencil Cookies – You’re On Point!

Teacher's appreciation day (May 9th, 2017) is just a few days away, so I better get right to the point. I mean really there's no point in beating around the bush, teachers are amazing. They are the awesomesauce people of the world, practically unicorns. I'm mean think about it, I can hardly handle my four kiddos and they wrangle like 24 every single day. Without wine, I have a good point don't you ... [ read more... ]

Fondant Lime Tutorial

A few days ago I shared with you guys a fun new Lime Dream Cake recipe. Be sure to check that out first, here. For the record, there was no need for egagerations on this cake...I seriously loved it. Seriously, make it! Aside from it's crazy deliciousness I had so much fun making the fondant limes I decorated it with, which I promised to come back and share. So here I am! Today I'm showing you how ... [ read more... ]

Lime Dream Cake

This week was a CAKE week! Which automatically makes my week twice as good. That is if I totally wipe out all memories of my soon to be toddler ripping two new teeth through her gums like a baby T-rex growing claws, tiny baby arms, teeth, and tears everywhere. Naturally causing her to wake up at 4 AM e-v-e-r-y-d-a-y this week, which sends her clinging to my legs by 4PM with an all out meltdown. ... [ read more... ]

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... ]
