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... ]

Gingerbread Cookies Sticks

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Pinterest is full of DIY christmas decorations and recipes, Instagram is full of holiday cuteness, and Facebook has more pictures of shining trees and happy kids then one can handle! I don't know about you guys but our calendar is super full, it seems there is a children's event or holiday party every few days! It's almost impossible to think about ... [ read more... ]

Peppermint Cheesecake Cupcakes

Have I ever told you guys I am not a fan of baking the same thing twice? I know it's kinda silly because most people crave something they have baked and loved and want to make it again…but me, I'm always wanting to try something new! With all the combos out there…there's only so many baking spots in life to fill! Which kind of creates a problem because of course friends and family have their favs ... [ read more... ]

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... ]

Peppermint Crunch Sugar Cookies

I simply can not wrap my head around the fact that Christmas is just days way. Days! It seems like no matter how hard I try, there is just never enough time at Christmas time. My "to do" list is always twice as long as the hours in the day, especially this year. Normally I have all sorts of goodies stored up in the freezer to easily pull out and serve at events as they come and go. Just has not ... [ read more... ]

Grinch Cupcake Tutorial

Woah, hello there! Did ya miss me? I sure have missed you guys! I know things have been super quiet around here for far too long, but I have great news! The very first edition of the MBC book, is finished! Happy dance, happy dance! There is still quiet a long way to go, but the around the clock sprinkle fest will calm down just a bit for me - so I can get back to enjoying life outside the book, ... [ read more... ]

Didn’t Mean To Be a Flake…

Happy 2014!! Here's to a sweet new year! I'm looking forward to bringing you guys even more sprinkles and sugar this year! I don't know about you guys but it seems like no matter how early I start prepping for the Holidays there is just never enough time! It's seems after Christmas there are always a few things on the list that just didn't make it into the schedule. I was a little bummed this ... [ read more... ]

Wreath Cookies

Last year when I made these holly cupcakes, I just knew I had to make wreath cookies. Fast forward a year later, I finally got the chance and I LOVE how they turned out! These cookies definitely fulfill my love for "easy design" cookies alone. Yet put them together and they create the cutest little display for your Christmas table! I didn't "attach" my cookies together at all so they are just ... [ read more... ]
