Some of my favorite new submissions this week:   Or as we like to call her, “Tripod.” (That was the most family-friendly joke I could come up with. HI, MOM.)   If you write online a lot, then this next one is for you. The problem with ordering via e-mail: Now, everyone laughing, go ahead and explain it to the rest o [...]

When Jolene asked her bakery if they could fit an edible image of this flyer on a sheet cake for her, they assured her it’d be no problem: So, let’s review: one rectangular image, one rectangular sheet cake. How could they POSSIBLY wreck this up?   [drum roll, please]   TA-DAAAA!!   Thanks to Jolene B. for going [...]

Chocolate Chip Granola

Thumbnail for 1705
Earlier this month when we went to the beach, I stocked our car snack bag with a few bags of granola that Nature Valley had sent my way. Believe it or not, I’m usually anti-chocolate when it comes to breakfast, so I’d never tried a chocolate or chocolate chip granola before. Not long into our trip, we busted open the bag of Oats & [...]

Pink Dots Wedding Cake

Thumbnail for 1697
This four-tier cake is so pretty and delicate, but also fun and whimsical with all those tiny dots in varying shades. Our friends at Hockleys Cakes in the United Kingdom created this lovely cake (called the “Carnaby”) and it took them eight hours (yes, 8 hours!) to hand pipe the dots onto the icing. The dots give the cake depth &# [...]

My great aunt was famous for a few of her specialty items – poor man’s cookies, broccoli casse [...]

Peanut Butter Cup Icebox Cake

Thumbnail for 1683
Icebox cake was a long-standing fixture in my grandma’s kitchen on Sundays, especially during the summer. Hers was an incredibly simple version, consisting of layers of graham crackers, vanilla pudding and, sometimes, Cool Whip on top. It was one of my two favorite desserts at my grandma’s in the summer; the other being angel food [...]
