Christmas Cookie Lollapalooza

ccl-ft

If there’s one thing you gotta love about Christmas time, it’s the joy you get to share with loved ones. Nah, who am I kidding, it’s the cookies. You love the cookies. It’s ok, don’t be ashamed, you could admit it. Trust me, you will not be judged. I am the last person who will tell you you’re wrong for loving a cookie more than a family member. Truuuuuuuuust me. But that’s a whole other …

Salted Caramel & Peppermint Hot Cocoa Snowflakes

IMG_2687

Happy holidays!! Just to be clear, I’m not the politically correct type to tell everyone happy holidays. No offense to anyone, but I’ll Merry Christmas your ears till the elves come home. But since we’re in the holiday season and it’s not Christmas yet, that’s how I’m greeting you. But anyway! How’s it going?! Christmas shopping done? Holiday rush getting the best of you? How many elderly people have you pushed out of your way to get …

Pumpkin Doughnuts with Salted Caramel Glaze

ft-doughnuts

Doughnuts! I love doughnuts. Like, looooooove em. There aren’t many things I wouldn’t do for a doughnut. Seriously, when I tell you I’d inject them into my veins, I hope you believe me. The science is there, it’s been done before by great men… Even with my love for them, I’ve gone so many years on this site and I never made any. What’s up with that?! Chalk up another one for unexplainable laziness. But …

Caramel & Chocolate Apples

So yeah, we’re at the end of October. If you haven’t caught on, I usually start my blog posts with a reminder of how fast time flies. It’s not my fault! Whenever I start writing something, the first thing I do is look at the date. And almost every time, I’m dumbfounded by how the calendar days are melting away like butter on a hot grill. I really should stop because it’s not good to live …

October is basically over! Isn’t that just plain ol nuts?! I mean, we’re a whole two months from the end of the year! It’s madness. Even more madness? This is a post about something that happened waaaaaaaaaaaay back in March! Hahaha, yeah, I know! What the heck am I doing? The answer is: I have no idea! Honestly, I made this with every intention of remaking it in the future. Unfortunately, with it being October …

The Breakfast Panwich

ft sand

I know most of you don’t know me. I mean, you know a lot about me, but not characteristic stuff. Well here’s something that not many people know – when I’m eating breakfast, I’m a sandwicher. If you or someone you love is also a sandwicher, then you know what it is. If you don’t know anyone like that, it basically means whatever I’m having, 9 times out of 10, I’m going to make it …

S’mores Truffles

Here we are again! Like it or not, we are quickly approaching the end of summer. I know, it feels like it just started, but what can you do? Personally, I cannot wait to start enjoying that fresh, crisp fall air. It’s just the way I’m wired. Call me crazy, but I’m not a huge fan of being uncomfortably hot. So sayonara, summer, I hardly wanted to know thee. But before it goes, I wanted …

Family Travels: Florida Part DCCXV

IMG_8457

We’re finally back from vacation! And by finally, I mean we’ve been here for like a month but I’ve been too lazy to do anything productive. Three cheers for procrastination! Seriously, I feel like a bum, it’s terrible. But at the same time, it’s ok! Want to know why? Because I don’t feel too guilty about it. Sure, you guys have probably been wandering, lost, and scared without my ramblings. But I’m sure you were …

Humpday Update – New Logo, New Links, New Parks!

Woo hoo! A humpday update! It’s been a long time, huh? I know you missed it. So what’s going on?! The main reason why I wanted to put this together was to announce the following, which I didn’t want to make a specific post for, but wanted to get it out there… I made a new logo!! It’s been a long time coming, that’s for sure. When I made my original logo, I was in …

A Mother’s Cake is a Powerful Thing

Mama Said Knock You Out Happy mothers day! Wait, what? I’m early?! Whoa, that’s a first! But it’s for good reason. A couple of months ago, Wilton asked if I had anything inspirational to share about my mom. Without even thinking about it, about a hundred different things popped in my head. So I thought I’d share a few with you today. We all have memories of growing up and getting older. As the years …
