Strawberry Santas

I was not planning on making a dessert this year for my husband’s work place since I was travelling a few days earlier than usual to visit my family in New England. However, my husband insisted that I send something in as I do every year for his job (he always works Christmas). This year I made a cheesecake covered in chocolate ganache with a graham cracker crust.  To dress it up a little, I made some of these little cuties to put on top:


They are essentially strawberries with cream cheese frosting (or you could do whipped cream frosting).  [Continue reading…]

A Curious George Party


A few months before my daughter’s birthday party, I asked her what kind of theme she wanted. She was (and still is) obsessing over two characters: Barney and Curious George. However, no offense to Barney, but I cannot stand that purple dinosaur. So…Curious George it was. If you are a DIY type of person and want to make some of the items below, I linked directly to where I purchased the tools to make the items.

My son is obsessed with Toy Story. Enough so that we had to do a Toy Story party for his 4th birthday. I’m saving the party planning details for a later blog post, but the cupcake tree I made deserves its own post. And here is a closeup of some of the aliens to give […]

Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken

Ingredients in Slow Cooker

My picky toddlers gobbled this up, so this meal is a win for me! The best part is that it requires less than 5 minutes of prep before it goes into your slow cooker. I would have loved to make my barbeque sauce from scratch, but I was short on time on a weeknight. So, […]

Easy Hair Bow Holder

Bow Holder

This hair bow holder is a gift I made for my friend’s daughter. I made this for her because I heard the little lady recently got her room painted pink and thought this would be a fun and practical accessory. My favorite part is the hooks at the bottom of the board for hanging headbands […]
