Fun Wedding Favor: Mini Mint Tins

Thumbnail for 9749
If there’s one thing I always have in my purse, it’s a miniature tin of mints. They’re easier to tote around than a pack of gum, which inevitably ends up dumped at the bottom of my bag. Which brings me to today’s featured favor – miniature tins of breath mints. If you’re planning a “candy bar” a [...]

Bad Giraffe! BAAAAD!

Bad Giraffe! BAAAAD!
When your last name is Hammer, there’s really just one way to nail a baby shower cake. And that way…   …is NOT LIKE THIS. Aw, crap.   Still, at least everyone can get a chuckle over sh*tty “hamer”s. Imagine being the only one at a baby shower to see something wrong with this cake topper – which, [...]

Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars

Thumbnail for 9744
These easy sugar cookie bars are super soft thanks to cream cheese in the dough, and are topped with the best vanilla buttercream frosting. When I was little, one of my very favorite holiday traditions was making cut-out sugar cookies with my mom. She would mix up the dough and then my sister and I would help roll it out and cut out all of th [...]

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Thumbnail for 9742
These thick and chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are the best! They’re the perfect size and are loaded with oats and chocolate chips. We are a serious house divided here when it comes to chocolate chip cookies. I’m not saying it’s as dire a situation as Romeo & Juliet, but there have been some lively discussions here [...]

Healthy Peanut Butter and Jelly Fudge...

Thumbnail for 9740
Healthy peanut butter and jelly fudge made in peanut butter cup form! Naturally vegan and gluten-free and sunflower seed butter can be used for a paleo / nut-free version. I’m super excited about today’s recipe! I’ve never actually had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that I enjoyed but I love the combination. I made peanu [...]

Literally Helping

Literally Helping
Bakers, sometimes it helps to remember the 5 Ws: Who:   What:   Er, let’s try that again. What? That’s better.   When:   Where:   WHY GAWD WHY:   And then you can add an H, for “How?” See how helpful that was? Though next time we should probably talk about your coffee orders: :: [...]

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Thumbnail for 9737
A classic Buffalo Chicken Dip – shredded chicken, hot sauce, cream cheese, ranch dressing, and lots of cheese! Great for parties and game days! One of my oldest, best friends, Beth, definitely qualifies as a genius. Five or six years ago, a couple of days before Christmas, she invited a bunch of girlfriends over for a “dip party& [...]

Underwhelmingly Bad Wedding Cakes

Underwhelmingly Bad Wedding Cakes
You ever see a cake and have one of those reactions like: “Ooooh, that’s not good. I mean, it could be worse, I guess, but still, really not good. What was it for? … A wedding?! OH THAT POOR BRIDE.” That’s today’s cakes.   They’re all a bit sad…   A bit lumpy-bumpy…   A b [...]

Waffle Wedge Sundaes

Thumbnail for 9734
These pretty waffle wedges would certainly make breakfast better, but I like the idea of adding them to ice cream. Chocolate waffles dipped and drizzled in melted chocolate and covered in pastel sprinkles. Perfect. I broke out the top loading vertical waffle maker that I received for Christmas last year. Still love it … … and how it perfectly [...]

Sunday Sweets for Wonder Women

Sunday Sweets for Wonder Women
Happy Mother’s Day, cake fans! And since we all know Mom is a superhero in disguise, CLEARLY we should celebrate with some Wonder Woman cakes:   After all, bullet-proof tiaras never go out of style, and I bet the Lasso of Truth would come in real handy during long car rides.   With moms being the ultimate multi-taskers, it m [...]

The Weekend Dish: 5/13/2017

Thumbnail for 9731
Hello hello! How was your week? Mine was a crazy blur with lots of things going on, appointments, and is ending with Joseph and I both having colds, yuck! So, I’m laying low today and relaxing; tomorrow we’re ordering food for dinner from a favorite restaurant so the moms can stay out of the kitchen and enjoy the day. What do you [...]

Friday Favs – 5/12/17

Friday Favs – 5/12/17
Some of my favorite new submissions this week:   Amy guessed “spleen.” I’m thinking… croissant? …that’s shaped like a spleen? Either way, it’s a red-letter day for organ-loving birthday celebrants everywhere. ****   When Mom’s trying to tell you something: ****   And when your [...]

Because Everything's Better With...

Because Everything's Better With The Muppets
It’s time to bake the music,   It’s time to write the slights!   It’s time to make some carnage, At the bakery tonight! [bahdum dum dum] It’s time to put on makeup,   It’s time to dress up right,   It’s time that we departed,   It’s not for the fainthearted,   [...]
