Love Kebabs (aka Heart-Shaped Fruit Kebabs)

Here’s a fun, healthy way to celebrate Valentine’s Day: heart-shaped fruit kebabs! I made these to send into my daughter’s class for their Valentine’s Day party.

Wedding Cupcakes

My cousin called me a few days before her wedding reception in a bit of a pickle. She needed a cake for her wedding, but it was too late to order one. Knowing how stressed out she was, I offered to help. However, there was no way I would be able to bake and nicely […]

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 […]

Here is my latest creation. If you have a hard time neatly frosting a cake, you’ll love making this. The cake is pretty forgiving since […]

Thanksgiving Herb Stuffing

Happy Thanksgiving! Many popular stuffing recipes involve using sausage, but if you’re looking for one that has no meat and just veggies, this one will not disappoint!
