Sunday Sweets: Grandma's Kitchen...

Thumbnail for 2209
These may not be your grandmother’s cakes… but I bet she’d love them. Rickrack and strawberries? Yes, please!   If we learned anything from Grandma’s house, it’s that you can never have too many floral patterns. Especially when they’re hand-painted.   No one does “dainty” like our gr [...]

The Weekend Dish: 7/26/2014

Thumbnail for 2203
Happy Saturday to you! Do you have a big, exciting weekend planned? We’re doing some things around the house today, and then getting together with some family tomorrow. Mostly a low-key weekend, which is my favorite! I haven’t crocheted any squares on my baby blanket in about 10 days, so I need to get back to that, as well! As alw [...]

Friday Favs 7/25/14

Thumbnail for 2201
A few of my favorite submissions this week:   Yeah! Go SPORTS!   Of course it’s easy to focus on the mistakes, so let’s take a second to appreciate that somewhere there’s a professional baker who actually did this… on purpose. (“I call it, ‘Barbie’s Dream Petri Dish.’”) &nbs [...]

Thumbnail for 2199
Happy Friday! I thought I’d do a Friday Faves post including a bunch of my favorite products from The Honest Company. If you’re not familiar with the brand, it was co-founded by Jessica Alba and carries a line of safe, eco-friendly health and household items for the whole family. When I became pregnant with Elle, Eric and I want [...]

Logo Low-Blows

Thumbnail for 2191
I know it can be scary asking a bakery to do something custom, like, say, a school or brand’s logo. But DON’T PANIC; I’m here to walk you through it. First, print out a nice, clear image to bring in as a reference:   With something as simple as this Chanel logo, you can be sure there is simply NO WAY… …tha [...]

Key Lime Pie Marshmallow Treats are loaded with graham cracker crumbs, lime zest, coconut and Campfire® Marshmallows then drenched in a rich chocolate coating. We just got home from Florida, approximately 4 hours and 32 minutes ago. And we drove, because what better way to test your relationship than to travel to Florida in a car for 17 ho [...]

Giant Chocolate-Peanut Butter Chip Co...

Thumbnail for 2185
I conducted a very scientific experiment this week. You may remember me mentioning that I have not been feeling the chocolate love lately. I haven’t been craving it and feel kind of sick when I do eat it, and many of you commented that you also had a huge chocolate aversion during the first trimester of pregnancy and that it had gone aw [...]

Graduate! Celebrate! "Decorate!&...

Thumbnail for 2183
If you’re still planning a party for the graduate in your life, then these bakeries would like you to know that they are ready and willing to provide a whole host of graduation-appropriate cake designs… On Styrofoam. Sure, it tends to stick in the molars a bit, but it’s extremely low in fat. NOTE TO BAKERS: Icing tends to s [...]

Wedding Cake with Rainbow Dots

Thumbnail for 2181
You know, the ones that were stuck to strips of paper so you inevitably ended up eating paper AND candy? How cool would those be on a wedding cake (minus the paper, of course)? Pretty cool if you ask me. So imagine how happy I was to find this very modern take on the candy dot wedding cake. It’s bright and colorful and cheerful. And it [...]

Cold Soba Noodle Salad with Spicy Pea...

Thumbnail for 2177
I have been savings tons of noodle-based salads on Pinterest, even though I rarely eat salads at home and I eat noodle salads even less frequently. However, I’ve been totally smitten with the idea of them recently – a totally satisfying meal that has carbs and that also piles in fresh vegetables, as well. On Sunday, I went surfing [...]

What The L?

Thumbnail for 2175
From the proud inventors of the Dewy Follicle System:  Shhhhhh! I hear the librarians there can be a bit crotchety.   Jessica H., I have a feeling they’re going to rip up your library card over this. Oh, and do only “past” Christians get to go to the Pubic Library? Discuss. [Note from Jen: I couldn’ [...]
