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 Chip Funfetti Cookies

Let's be real here, today I have no words for today's post. Wait a minute…wait a minute…nope nothing. Nothing funny, or sweet, or sad…not even something remotely entertaining. But really are words necessary when it comes to cookies? I mean really. Strawberry. White chocolate chips. Sprinkles. Soft. Chewy. All in cookie form (bonus points for pink cuteness). So let's skip the chit chat and get ... [ read more... ]

Sugar Cookie Ice Cream

Yesterday we sent the kiddos back to school, which means all three of the kiddos are now in school. ALL three! For most of my grown up life I've spent my days changing diapers, making PB & J's, wiping noses, picking up toys, and kissing boo boos. While part of me is totally relieved and totally excited for their new journey the other part of me feels completely lost. What exactly am I suppose to ... [ read more... ]

Lemon Cherry Pound Cake

I have really been enjoying teaming up with Krusteaz in the Baker's dozen program! This past year it's really given me a great opportunities to explore some fun baking mixes that I might otherwise have overlooked! This Meyer Lemon Pound Cake Mix is a perfect example! I've honestly never made a lemon pound cake, actually I've never made a pound cake from a mix either! I often let my family direct ... [ read more... ]

Snow Cone Cupcake Tutorial

In case you've totally missed all the fun this far, Cupcakery (my book) is officially here! This last week has been a whirlwind of emotions as I was able to watch you guys share your excitement while receiving your books over social media. From the bottom of my heart, I can not thank you enough. While I have many many many more sobbing thank you's I'm going to save those for another post later ... [ read more... ]

Strawberry Banana Cupcakes

Inspiration really can one from anywhere. Like cake stands. I really should probably tell you that I made these cupcakes because I love banana and strawberry together, or that my kiddos requested them, or because it's my favorite smoothie combo ever...but that would be a total fib. See that pretty little cake stand? I found it at our local PX (military post exchange) and it was like THE perfect ... [ read more... ]

Lemon-Lime Cheesecake Cupcakes

One of my favorite things about baking, is proving myself wrong over and over. I know, weird right? But it's true. I love to break my own boundaries, discover new things, and realize that maybe I actually do love that flavor I've always said I don't like at all…wait did I just admit to behaving like a picky toddler? Let's take our citrus friends lemon and lime for example, the BFF's of ... [ read more... ]

Strawberries & Cream Ice Cream

I know what you're thinking…but it's September now and the whole world is jumping on the "all things pumpkin bandwagon" why are you posting more ice cream? Just kidding about the last part…there's no such thing as too much ice cream and we all know it! You see, I haven't quiet adjusted to living in the desert yet, and it's incredibly hard to get pumped up about Pumpkin Spice Lattes when it's still ... [ read more... ]
