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 […]

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 […]

Oreo Peppermint Crunch Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are a lot of things I love about the holidays. One of my favorite things is baking. It’s the one time of the year where I can bake whenever I want and no one complains to me about it. Santa needs his cookies, right? So I started doing a 31 days of Christmas thing […]

Cranberry Lemon Bars

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I love Christmas! My dad was the one who taught me to love Christmas. He learned from his mom. We always take a picture of our Christmas tree. The trick with my dad wasn’t necessarily getting a lot of high ticket items, but large items. They can be […]

Peppermint Bark

I figured out why, it’s because the white chocolate has peppermint extract in it! It makes it so it doesn’t taste like white chocolate at all. So if you are […]

Moist Chocolate Cupcake with Oreo Filling Frosting

This  past weekend I had all my bridesmaids over to help craft for the wedding. It was loads of fun but we ended up with so much food. My mom came and bought food for every meal, my friend brought chips, dip, cheese, crackers, and cupcakes! I had also made cupcakes for the occasion. My […]

Caramel Apple Cookies

So I’ve been meaning to make this recipe for a while now. It’s a caramel apple cookie and it’s delicious. I’m obsessed with caramel, as my husband is quick to point out every time I make something with caramel sauce. Let’s be honest though, caramel is most definitely in vogue, especially salted caramel. I will […]

Salted Caramel Marshmallows

Yesterday I posted how to make vanilla marshmallows, today I wanted to kick it up a notch and show you how to make salted caramel marshmallows. Salted caramel is one of those things that wasn’t in, until it was in and now it’s everywhere; candies, fudge, chocolate bars, and even marshmallows. My aunt and uncle […]
