Some of my favorite new submissions this week:   The Serial Killer: How…?   The Cheapskate: It’s a professional cake… with a paper plate on it. A PAPER PLATE.   The “Woohoo! Great Deal!” Although the fact that it’s on clearance does restore a little of my faith in humanity.   The [...]

Texas Cowboy Poetry Goes Horse

Thumbnail for 3946
Every year I try to channel my inner cowboy and write a little poetry. So sit back, relax, and try not to picture me in a Three Amigos costume*. [*You’re already doing it, aren’t you? I knew it.]   Jed was a cowboy who wanted to sing ‘Bout huntin’ an’ fishin’ an’ bein’ right-wing. As a m [...]

Cakes Only A Mother Could Love

Thumbnail for 3942
I think the following cakes are really special. Like seeing a beautiful newborn for the first time, these baby shower cakes leave me… well, speechless. What a coincidence! E.T. was on my TV today, too! Ethan… phone home… (and tell your parents Jersey Shore called. They want their tan back.)   “Hi, bakery? I have [...]

Chocolate Wedding Cake

Everyone is expecting a cake with white icing, even if the cake inside is a variety of flavors. So why not wow your guests and surprise them with a chocolate frosted cake? The cake flavors could vary – chocolate, marble, yellow – but to see a wedding cake frosted with gloriously delicious chocolate icing? That would be incredible! [...]

Cheesy Homemade Garlic Bread

Thumbnail for 3938
True story: before making this garlic bread, I had only ever eaten store-bought, frozen garlic bread. Judge away. It’s quick, easy and usually tastes pretty good. However, whipping up a homemade version was something I had wanted to do at some point, and when I made the cheesy baked tortellini, I thought it was the perfect opportunity t [...]

The War on Baby Showers

Thumbnail for 3935
With all the scary C-section and jelly-soaked vagina cakes out there, I think we’ve lost track of what a baby shower cake SHOULD be. No, this isn’t it.   C’mon, guys, what’s wrong with a sweet, heartfelt sentiment?     Or a cutesy character?   (On the plus side, it’s nice seeing chocolate [...]

Cheesy Baked Tortellini

Thumbnail for 3933
It seems unfathomable that Christmas was less than two months ago at this point; life has been jam packed since the calendar turned to January! Over the holidays, we had dinner with some members of my husband’s family and cheese tortellini in a pink sauce was on the menu. My husband and brother-in-law had talked about this pink sauce fo [...]

Miracle Pan Release

Miracle Pan Release
If you bake a lot, then this Miracle Pan Release recipe is a must have item in your pantry! It’s so much cheaper than using cooking spray, it works better and there are no chemical fumes! It does not leave the icky weird, black residue on the edges of your pans like cooking spray and it makes clean up a breeze!

Everyday Brownies

Everyday Brownies
I was craving chocolate. Just chocolate. Okay … WAS is probably the wrong choice of words because I crave chocolate everyday. And these easy Everyday Brownies from my friend Kamran’s new book Hand Made Baking were … p-e-r-f-e-c-t. < That was me singing btw. So decadent and fudgy! I love brownies because the ingredients are simple and yo [...]

Leave Blank Space, Baby
