My Experience at the 2015 Wilton Sweet-Up!

Man! Where to start?! Well, let’s not draw it out. A lot went on and we don’t need filler so I’ll get to it. As you may know, I’m an ambassador for Wilton. As a member of their Sweet Treat Team I’m honored to receive products of theirs to try out and tell you about. It’s an insanely simple relationship we have since I always used their stuff anyway, so when they asked me to …

The Wilton Sweet-Up and YOU!

If you weren’t aware of Wilton and I being best buds, and me being on their Sweet Treat Team, then you’ve either been living under a rock or this is your first time here. Whatever the case, we’re both in for a treat! A little over a week from now, on April 23rd and 24th (a few days before the most important day of the year!), Wilton will be hosting their annual Sweet-Up! They’ll be doing all …

Lost in the Echo

Lost In The Echo After such a long break, it’s hard to just come back and act like everything is dandy. I mean, I’m posting stuff now, but I went more than a year without updating anything new. That’s just bananas! And not the yummy, buttery, fried and rolled in cinnamon and sugar kind. To be completely honest, I’ve barely even looked at the site in that year. I’ve gotten a few comments here and …

The Only Thing Constant Is Change

This is going to be an update. No recipes, no food, just bringing you up to speed on la vida and what’s been going on. Bit of a warning up front: This is probably going to be a little long winded. Maybe if I feel like it I’ll put a TL;DR at the bottom. I have a lot to say. I mean, a lot’s been going on. And I’ve never been one to summarize, not …

Christmas Cookie Lollapalooza

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

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

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 …

The 5th Birthday Cake: Loki’s Tower

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 …
