{recipe} lemon blueberry bread

  We had plenty of rain this past weekend so I took advantage of us being forced indoors to do some baking. I also had plenty of babysitters since my mom and brothers stayed over, so I went thru my list of recipes to make and picked one that looked good at the moment. I […]

{recipe} churro cupcakes

I’m posting these delicious churro cupcakes today to help celebrate Cinco De Mayo tomorrow (or to celebrate all week). I made mini versions of these cupcakes and brought them to work a few years ago and they were gobbled up. I originally made these when we hosted a dinner party for our 1st year wedding […]

{recipe} pecan pie mini-cupcakes

This year was my first year hosting Friendsgiving party and also Thanksgiving party at my house.  I love gathering my friends and family and have a night in and celebrate with food. I love hosting parties for many different reasons, but one of the reasons is the process of creating a dinner menu. I like […]

{recipe} Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Squares

For the last two years, I’ve done a bake sale during fall season to raise funds for charity.  We fundraise and do the 5K walk every October. As part of my contribution to my team, I like to do a bake sale so I can raise money and entice family and friends to donate to a […]

{recipe} baked oatmeal

One of the easiest thing for me to make for breakfast is oatmeal. It’s even easier when it’s prepared ahead of time. I try to make a few dishes on Sundays, I call it my Sunday-prep-time, for us to eat throughout the week. Now that the temps are heating up around here, it is best […]

{Recipe} Coconut Date Balls

The holiday season is upon us. Everything we do has new meaning these days. I find myself saying to Chris, “this is going to be the last holidays where it is just going to be the two of us” or “next year, we’ll be pushing the stroller past these Christmas decorations”. It really helps me […]

Fall Baking Begins – Pumpkin Spice Granola

I’ve been drinking a lot of tea lately. Chai tea with almond milk to be exact. Our house is filled with different candles in each room. I’m currently loving the Spiced Cider scent from Bath and Body works. I bought it last week and the large jar is half way done. I love that it’s […]

Grain Free Chocolate Cake for One

Hello friends 🙂 It feels like it has only been a minute since I posted last weekend, yet a week has gone by. I can’t believe it went by so fast. It was raining earlier this week (after I bragged about how it was so sunny during the weekend) so my week started very gloomy […]

Chocolate {Avocado} Cake

Ever since I turned my calendar to the month of February, chocolate has been on my mind. Everywhere I go, there’s chocolate in my face. The stores are filled with chocolate displays for Valentine’s day even before January ended. Since I know I will be enjoying some decadent chocolate desserts this week, I wanted to […]

Blogger Cookie Swap – Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tis’ the season for baking and giving 🙂 I’ve started my holiday baking early this year. I actually started baking a week before Thanksgiving. We’ve been doing a local bake sale with friends and family to help raise money for Team For Life and reach our fundraising goals. Not only am I baking for the […]
