I can’t believe that it’s already the end of June and this the very first batch of homemade ice cream I’ve churned up so far this year! I’m way, way behind on my ice cream game. I’ve been eating fresh fruit by the boatload for the last month, and wanted to make an ice cream that took advantage of the awesome prod [...]

How To Be Popular On The Internet

Thumbnail for 1899
Today we’re going to talk about what makes a successful blog post. Remember, it is very important to follow these instructions carefully, or else trolls may never find you and tell you how stupid you are.   Step 1: Start with boobs. Because an internet without boobs is like fingers without bones: Horrifying.   Step 2: Add ado [...]

Floral Wedding Cupcake

Thumbnail for 1897
I have to say this bouquet-inspired cupcake is almost too pretty to eat. Almost. The cupcake would be ideal at a smaller wedding reception, or even as an accompaniment to your full-size wedding cake. It would be a great wedding favor for your guests to take home too – packaged in “take home” containers. So cute. The vanilla [...]

Cheesy Portabello-Tomato Appetizer

Thumbnail for 1895
Quite a few years ago (maybe 10!), we had a family cookout for 4th of July at my mom’s house and my aunt showed up with this appetizer. Even though it was gorgeous outside, we all huddled around my mom’s kitchen island and shoveled in baguette slice after baguette slice until the entire pan was empty. I can’t speak for anyon [...]

“Minion! Did you take care of Captain America’s shield?” “Yes, commander! After today, that meddlesome schoolboy won’t even recognize his shield.” “Exxxxcellent. Out of curiosity, what did you do?” “Sir?” “To Roger’s shield. How did you sabotage it? Acid? Explosives? Rad [...]

Fruit Pizza

Thumbnail for 1885
For as long as I can remember, I have been absolutely obsessed with the veggie pizza appetizer that my mom used to make. It was one of the only things that could convince me to eat raw broccoli; most likely because it sat on a bed of ranch dressing and buttery crescent rolls. That appetizer was especially popular on New Year’s Eve and d [...]

3 Wedding Wrecks That Completely Miss...

Thumbnail for 1879
So many wedding wrecks happen when a bride asks for a fondant design done in buttercream – but what happens when it’s the opposite? LET’S FIND OUT. Here’s the buttercream design one bride ordered for her wedding: She had a Fall theme, so her one stipulation: NO ROSES.   Which is kind of ironic, since the store-bo [...]

Whole Wheat Kanelbullar (Swedish Cinn...

Thumbnail for 1877
Did you know that cinnamon buns supposedly originate in Sweden? Kanelbullar are Swedish cinnamon buns, making these the forefathers of the fluffy, soft and usually pretty sweet American version. It’s difficult to compare these with American cinnamon buns, but kanelbullar aren’t as fluffy and not nearly as sweet as your typical cin [...]

Beach-inspired White Wedding Cake

Thumbnail for 1875
Which brings me to today’s beach-y wedding cake, complete with adorable mini Adirondak chairs as the cake topper. I love the stark simplicity of the white fondant icing – it really creates a perfect palette to create lovely cake-scapes. But what makes this cake perfect for your summer beach wedding are the incredible decorations. [...]

Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Bars

Thumbnail for 1871
I’ve been on a little bit of a cheesecake kick the past week or so. It started with these Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Bars that I made for People.com. And they were so good that I had to make another batch. But this time I swapped the cookies for peanut butter cups. The unopened bag sitting on my counter said they wanted me too. So I obl [...]
