Mini Chocolate Pound Cakes

Mini Chocolate Pound Cakes

One of my favorite Black Friday stops is World Market. They always have a killer deal on Guittard chocolate chips and champagne. They also had some great deals baking pans. I couldn’t resist the mini bundt pan, despite already owning like 10! Seeing as how I came home with yet another cake pan and about […]

Halloween Cupcakes

I have clearly passed on my love for the holidays down to my children. Even as a baby, Ben has been mesmerized by all things Halloween, including the scary stuff. This is a big year for him, because for the first time, my late talker will actually be able to say “Trick or Treat!” Being the […]

Cannoli Cake

Cannoli Cake

Having been raised in an Italian household, Cannolis are essential. I remember my grandfather making them for any and every special occasion. You knew that if you woke up to the smell of hot oil, you were going to have the perfect dessert later in the day. Although I love the traditional cannoli, I also […]

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cupcakes with Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting

The last few months have been such a wonderful experience for all of us. It is truly remarkable how Pepper’s motherly instincts kicked […]

Easy Vanilla Cupcakes

Easy Vanilla Cupcakes

When I go to a new bakery the first thing I order is a vanilla cupcake. I think this is the best way to decipher if the bakery is good or not. With a vanilla cupcake or cake, the flavor is pure, giving you the chance to really taste whether or not they are using […]
