Breakfast Muffin

So I have taken a break from this for a while in order to master some of my Photoshop skills. I got it for Christmas and wasn’t prepared to post something until I was proud of the photos! I also had my wedding, which was truly the most amazing day of my life. My wonderful […]

Hot Chocolate Truffle Sticks

Every year for Christmas at my husband’s house everyone contributes to stockings, since we’re all a little old for Santa to come and visit anymore. The first year we joined was last year when my husband proposed to me. It was perfect and everyone enjoyed hearing the story of how he drove to my sister’s […]

Vanilla Cupcake Wreath

My new tradition with our friends is to make the person with the closest birthday whatever cupcakes they want when we see them. They can pick any type of cupcake and I’ll attempt to make it as best as I can. My friend asked for a vanilla butter cupcake with buttercream frosting. She wanted it […]

Vanilla Candy Cane Cookies

As peppermint is one of the flavors of the season, and pairs perfectly with chocolate (which is my favorite), I’ve been using it a lot. I didn’t quite realize how much until my husband asked me to stop making peppermint stuff because he wanted to be able to eat something I baked! So I decided […]

Cranberry Brie Bites

I always love hosting people and appetizers are something that I tend to not put a lot of effort into, but I want them to be delicious. Isn’t that what everyone wants? This is something I tried for the first time, but something I’m definitely making again. It was a huge hit and so simple to […]

Maple Bacon Snowman Cupcakes

So one of my oddest tastes is that I hate bacon. It is one of my least favorite things. It’s just too strong for me. One of my friends always calls me un-American because of my dislike of bacon, others just call me weird. We have a party once a year for our friends where […]

Homemade (Spiked) Eggnog

I love hosting holiday parties. This past weekend I hosted two and I have another coming up this Sunday. With my penchant for crafting and baking, hosting naturally follows. I always try to have something interesting and different at my parties and this year it was a fun twist on a white elephant gift exchange. […]

Hot Cocoa Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting

One of my favorite things about winter is hot cocoa. I don’t have it very often, but when I do I want it to taste just like a melted chocolate bar. I always love having whipped cream on top and marshmallows. As you all know, I’m obsessed with cupcakes. So I decided to turn my […]

Peppermint Bark Rice Krispie Treats

Today we decorated our Christmas tree and it’s perfect. We are really lucky that my mom gave me a lot of ornaments. It makes it so that our tree has no ornament more than once and they all have a special meaning to us. This year we got a beautiful ornament of a man and […]
