Raspberry and Almond Bread Pudding

I’m so not into Valentine’s Day this year. I’ve never really been a fan of the holiday anyway, but after getting divorced it feels like a big fat slap in the face. It makes me feel kind of pathetic and lonely truth be told. To make matters worse I have to work all day. In […]

Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes and a Giveaway *Closed*

I’m a bit obsessed with cupcakes lately! There’s just something about a cupcake that seems to make everything all better – a long day at school, a tough day at work, kid drama… For a few small moments, the world slows down and everything seems good and right. The real secret to an incredible cupcake […]

Double Caramel Brownies

Well I’ve finished moving. Almost anyway… My apartment is cluttered with half-empty boxes, the fridge and pantry are mostly empty and I have to take baths because I haven’t even hung up a shower curtain yet. So while I’m buried under my mountain of crap I should have considered donating to Goodwill quite some time […]

Just Like DoubleTree Cookies

Have you ever stayed at a DoubleTree Hotel? They have these cookies that are like the cookie equivalent of crack. I kid you not. See… Since I’m totally the kind of girl who would pick a hotel based on the cookies they serve, it’s a real bummer I can’t afford to stay at the DoubleTree […]

Austrian Raspberry Shortbread

So the first two days at my new job left me wanting to bang my head on the desk. The “training” was so painful I would have rather they just put me to work scrubbing dishes or hell even cleaning toilets! Exibit A: A plate of eggs gets one slice of orange to garnish, but […]

Biscoff Cupcakes with Biscoff Buttercream

I have good news and I have bad news. Which one do you want first? Ok, well since you can’t answer, I’ll start with the good news. I got the job I interviewed for the other day! Yeah! The bad news is that is just isn’t my dream job. Not even close to my dream […]

Pot o’ Gold Cookies

I think I might need to get a life. I spent an hour today playing Cash Cow on Webkinz. I’d like to say that it was to help my daughter beat a level or earn some KinzCash, but no… I’m just a dork. I also managed to kill like three hours playing with coding to […]

Chocolate Plunge

 With three kids there are weeks that simply fly by! While I love to surprise my kids with a special dessert sometimes, there are nights when there just isn’t a lot of time to be super creative. This chocolate dip is a perfect weeknight treat, but it’s also luxurious enough to entertain with. And it’s […]

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes

I used to totally hate the color pink! Like, I would cry and beg and plead my mother not to make me wear it, kind of hate. Well, that and dresses. And tights… That was how I was totally convinced my first daughter was going to be a girl – I suddenly wanted pink everything! […]
