• Christmas Time
  • So Fresh So Minty

    One of my FAVORITE Christmas traditions is making “Christmas” mints.  What are Christmas mints you say?  Glad you asked!  While most ladies are slaving away in the kitchen making Christmas cookies, I’m dipping homemade mints in chocolate.  And the Christmas mints have a great story…it’s a doozy so here’s the Reader’s Digest version.  It’s a […]

    Happy Blogiversary!  Can you believe it?!  The blog baby is two already!  They grow up so fast (she says as a glistening tear rolls down her cheek).  And like any good mama, I made cake for the birthday blog: And yes that’s one of Martha’s domed cake stands from Macy’s.  I love, love, LOVE it!

  • It’s My Birthday And I’ll Bake If I Want To

    This past weekend I celebrated my birthday and it was awesome!  Mostly because my boyfriend is a rock star in the birthday present department!  My gift from Colby was the most amazing present, so perfect in every way.  He bestowed upon me…drum roll please…a pink Kitchen Aid mixer!  It’s so pretty!  He gave it to […]
