Spring Velvet Butterfly Cookie Cake

Recently we celebrated two little birthdays in the Maison De Miller (that's fancy for our house). M & B, my little twinies turned five. Yes, five. As in we're going off to kindergarten and totally shedding the last bit of baby we have, even if you desperately tug and plead mom, it's happening. Sigh. Birthdays are so bittersweet as moms are they not? We plan these parties and events and celebrate ... [ read more... ]

Bubble Gum Ice Cream

My kids have always been bubble gum crazy, everything they see bubble gum they want. But they really aren't old enough to handle actual gum just yet. Three little girls, long hair, bubble gum… you know where I'm going with this. My oldest asks almost daily when she can start chewing gum my answer is always three years added to her current age, because I'm nice like that. So every once in awhile I ... [ read more... ]

Key Lime Pie Truffles

One of the things I really love about baking and blogging is it pushes me out of my comfort zone. I try new flavors, new ingredients, and new desserts that I otherwise never would have ever given much thought to. My abilities are constantly being stretched as well as my creativeness and flavor preference. Turns out the whole worlds doesn't revolve around chocolate and sprinkles...I know, I know, ...
