A light and buttery coconut cupcake topped with fresh strawberry frosting

The Best Strawberry Coconut Cupcakes

Whenever I have to bake cupcakes for an occasion, I almost always make these Coconut Cupcakes. They are always loved and are extremely popular. While I usually always make a coconut cream cheese frosting, I decided to change things up by using a fresh strawberry frosting instead. Let me tell you they are just as […]

Coconut Lime Blueberry Bundt Cake

Coconut Blueberry Lime Bundt Cake

Coconut Blueberry Lime Bundt Cake- whoa that title is quite the mouth full! But a deliciously tangy sweet mouthful. It seems that I get the urge to make a citrus bundt cake during the month of January every year. Last year I made a Lemon Poppyseed Bundt Cake, and the year before that I made […]

Eggnog Cake with Cheesecake Filling

  I have been told I am quite a food snob and I can’t really disagree. I like homemade food and not generally something that comes from a box or a can. I love using fresh ingredients that we have either grown ourselves or found someone local to buy from. But we all have our […]

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #ThePitchesatWMT http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I was about the release of Pitch Perfect 2. I absolutely loved the first movie, and […]

thick ny style buttery coffee cake

Buttery Coffee Cake

Sunday mornings are reserved for big family breakfasts. Normally, my husband is in charge of making the spread, but since he has been working so hard I have been subbing in and letting him sleep. Aren’t I sweet?! Yah, no I am not. I must admit that my taking over breakfast duty is purely selfish, […]

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 […]

Mini Cranberry Crumbles #QuakerUp #MyOatsCreation #CollectiveBias

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and Quaker. All opinions are mine alone. There is something about the holidays that gives me an extra dose of patience. I love baking with my kids, but sometimes the extra mess is just flat out daunting. During the holidays however every recipe that is made, […]

Gluten Free Carrot Cake

Gluten Free Carrot Cake

I think that carrot cake is a spring staple. This recipe is great because despite it being gluten free and dairy free (well if you don’t add the frosting) it is still delicious and tastes just like a normal cake. I made this cake twice, once using Cup4Cup gluten free flour and once using Trader […]

Yesterday I returned home from a fabulous weekend in Austin, TX. It was my first time in Texas, and boy did we live it up! I am pretty sure we tried every type of food and every local brew. I am still in such a food comma, so this post will be short! After having […]

  Next weekend I will be attending The Big Traveling Potluck. Although the meals will be catered (I think), they asked everyone to sign up to bring cupcakes, appetizer or cookies for a specific day. Let me tell you about this event. There were only 75 tickets available, and at least half of these tickets […]

Another Red Velvet Recipe…Tis the Season!

You slowly take a dainty bite and gently feed your significant other… Once dessert is done, you both look at each other and decide it is time. You stand up and start walking to the bedroom as he swiftly follows. You both slowly and sensually crawl under the covers. You seductively look over and make […]
