Hey everyone!

I'm going to keep this short and sweet.

I recently learned that humans laugh an average 15 times per day. I hope this post I'm going to put in here brings you to at LEAST 16. I laughed so hard I started clapping my hands and searching for something to lean on. I hope it has the same effect on you!


Oh ya, and in baking news... I tweaked a recipe from bakerella's blog... and did some Holiday weekend cupcakes. To me, nothing says Summer is here more than cottaging, campfires, and of course SMORES:

These cucpakes are made with part chocolate, part graham cracker based cupcake and in the middle is a jumbo marshmellow (I think I'll use mini's next time to be honest... the jumbo's exploded as they cooled out of the oven, haha). All in all my family and I enjoyed these. I also want to mention that I didn't even put the finishing touches on them! Picture a silky smooth chocolatey ganache drizzle.
mmmm... maybe I should add it then.

You can find the original recipe from...

this site has amazing ideas and recipes.

ENJOY and Happy Long Weekend!!!


Bachelorette here we go!

Hello bakers (and non-bakers),

Today is a day I am happy to say I have been down in the kitchen since the moment I woke up. First and foremost I made some lovely cupcakes for a Lingerie themed Bachelorette Party!

These mini chocolate and vanilla cupcakes are topped with vanilla butter cream frosting and fondant bra's!
Here's a peak.

next we're having a get together with family for dinner and I thought it would be nice to make some Penne a la vodka for my cousins.

I love this sauce. it's so easy to make too!

I'm also loving that it is cool and rainy out... It makes being in here all the more fun (since I'm not missing out on anything!)

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone! Eat well and be Merry :)


a non cupcake baking adventure... kind of


This evening I decided to try a new recipe after going for a jog (yes that sounds very counter productive I'm sure, although I only ate one, honest!)

I don't know if you guys have ever heard of a website called http://www.mybakingaddiction.com WELL- it.is.amazing!

I decided to slightly tweak her Homemade Oreo recipe to see if I couldn't make some for myself.

They were definitely too big, and I want to make them again with even less sugar than I put in (which was less than the recipe called for) but I think, with anice big glass of milk they are DELISH.

here is a sneak peak of the picture:

have a great night everyone!
