Blue and White Wedding Cake

Thumbnail for 3923
Which brings me to today’s cake. This three-tier creation reminds me of my favorite beach – with white sand and beautiful blue water. It’s quite lovely. I love the dramatic navy blue of the bottom tier and how it fades into a seascape inspired second tier of blues and greens, finally ending in the white top tier. The additio [...]

[Thank you so very much for your patience over these past two weeks as I’ve worked to clear up technical issues on the site.  My deepest apologies for the glitches; everything should be running smoothly at this point. I’m still cleaning up some missing photos and broken links, so if you see anything that needs to be fixed, feel fr [...]

Totally from Scratch Samoa Bars

Thumbnail for 3919
These Samoa bars are made completely from scratch (including the caramel!) and are a little healthier with 100% whole grains! Basically every Samoa recipe I’ve come across, whether cookies or bars, uses store bought caramels that you melt down with milk and other ingredients. I don’t get the point. And I don’t even mean from [...]

Sunday Sweets: Story Time Sweets

Once Upon a Time… …in the Kingdom of Zuu, lived a helpful young owl his Mom had named Huu.   Huu danced with Petunia when she did ballet,   and untangled Sloth when bars got in the way.   He always had time to tie Sally’s red bows,   and if Hedgie asked, Huu would polish his nose.   When Flamin [...]

Some of my favorite new submission this week: Tara wanted rock n’ roll:   …but what she got was wreck n’ woe: Aww. Play us the song of your people, little wreck! ["Wa wa WA waaaaaaaah!"] Ok, you can stop now.   This next one inspired me to write a little verse: Wishing        [...]

Greek Tzatziki Dip Recipe

Greek Tzatziki Dip Recipe
We have this favorite restaurant on one of our very favorite beaches… it serves this amazing fresh baked bread with dips that are to die for… After a few years of indulging when were we there I decided to try my hand at a few of the dips. With a few trial and error recipes, we now have a favorite Greek Tzatziki Recipe that I can m [...]

Fun Wedding Favor – Tea Drops

Thumbnail for 3911
There’s nothing quite as soothing as a cuppa steaming hot tea on a cold winter day. And given this new-found love of tea I just had to share these incredible tea drop wedding favors I found! These “tea drops” are condensed from organic tea and raw sugar and formed into bundles of tea. And, each flavor is represented by a dif [...]

We’ve already had the Golden Globes:   …and the People’s Choice:   So now it’s time for the Oscars! Yay! (Since Oscar grew a nice pair of groobs [grouchy boobs], this will also work for the SAGs.)   Check out some of the nominees: Boyhood: Thanks, Moomy.   The Imitation Game: What does it a [...]

Stairway to Heaven

Thumbnail for 3903
I have to be honest: I’ve never really understood the whole wedding-cake-plastic-staircase thing. I mean, who first decided the wedding figurines might need to take a stroll down to one of the side cakes? Not to mention this looks more like a video game level than a wedding cake. “Ok, what you have to do is, hop over the leaf-shr [...]

White Wedding Cake with Flowers

Thumbnail for 3901
Granted this cake is way prettier than any pile of snow – and it won’t make your toes cold either! You know I’m a sucker for traditional all-white wedding cakes – call my old fashioned but I like traditional cakes. Sure a pop of color or a whimsical cake is good every now and then, but I like white cakes. The fun part [...]

Healthier Swedish Blueberry Soup (veg...

Thumbnail for 3899
This healthier Swedish blueberry soup uses just a little maple syrup to sweeten this energizing dish that can be served either warm or cold! Naturally vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free. This may seem like an odd recipe to post now (or ever, if you’ve never heard of blueberry soup!) but it’s a typical winter dish in Sweden. ItR [...]

Happy Fat Tuesday, everybody! Now, as we all know, there’s only ONE traditional Mardi Gras dessert bakers have to make today: the King Cake. So naturally they’re making everything BUT. They’ve got Mardi Gras cupcakes:   Mardi Gras cookie cakes:   Mardi Gras layer cakes:   …and Mardi Gras donuts: &nb [...]
