A Toad-ally Awesome Leap Day Celebration
It’s Leap Day, minions, so we’ve decided to take the completely original route of celebrating with frog cakes. It’s a frog.

Homemade Blueberry Sauce comes together in just a few minutes. Try a spoonful with your morning yogurt or spooned over a stack of fresh, hot pancakes for a delicious treat! It’s not quite spring here in Ohio, but this weekend’s ample sunshine could have definitely fooled you into thinking we were well on our way to blooming tulip [...]

Snickers Cupcakes

These Snickers cupcakes taste JUST like the candy bar… A chocolate cupcake filled with peanut nougat, topped with a caramel buttercream frosting, covered in a chocolate ganache, chopped peanuts and a drizzle of caramel sauce. Oh my God, these cupcakes. Last week, my husband walked into the kitchen and asked what I thought about making [...]

These cookies are just as tasty as they look. I made them a couple of weeks ago and I wish I had about a dozen of them right now. I think they’d do just the trick to cure me of this cold/cough/grossness that I’ve had for the last several days. I’m super tired of feeling under the weather, but I’m getting better… at le [...]

Thumbnail for 6911
These Baileys Irish cream brownies are rich, fudgy and full of Baileys flavor with 3/4 cup in the batter and the ganache! Can be made with whole wheat, all-purpose or buckwheat flour for a gluten-free version. I don’t know about you but I skip over all that dyed green stuff* for St. Patrick’s Day and head straight for the Irish cr [...]

Spacing: The Final Wrecked Tier

Spacing: The Final Wrecked Tier
To quote Taylor Swift, I’ve got a blank space, baby: But it’s not big enough to write your name. Sorry.   The struggle… is real.   And the balloons… are upside down.   That moment when everyone wonders why you didn’t just stop at “congrats.”   And that’s how Bir Bir Th [...]
