Last year I made these Irish cream brownies and wanted to make something equally as chocolaty and boozy this year. By the way, if you haven’t made this [...]

The Long And Short Of It
[WARNING: It’s been far too long since I told you to hide the kids, right? Well, today’s the day, peeps.

We need to talk about two very important things today… #1: Can you believe that I just recently had a Dutch baby pancake? I’d been hearing about them for ages, but I just couldn’t bel [...]

Completely Inappropriate First Birthday Cakes
I’m pretty sure most one-year-olds will never remember their first birthday cakes, which is why I’m here to provide an invaluable service: reminding little E.J. that her (yes, her) parents got her this: Any guesses on what EJ will be getting for her 12th birthday?   Correct me if I’m wrong, parents, but I think age on [...]
