Guinness, Jameson & Baileys Cupcakes II

So, you may or may not have noticed that I already have a recipe for Guinness, Jameson & Baileys cupcakes on the blog. This year I decided to change it up a bit and make a new, modified version of this crowd favorite. I would say it was definitely a success! I kept the cake the same – it’s aRead more

Baileys & White Chocolate Cookies

Are you guys ready for some St. Patrick’s Day recipes? I have several I will be sharing with you over the next two weeks. First up, we have these quick and easy Bailey’s and white chocolate cookies. Most people have Baileys around the house during the month of March, so I wanted to find a basic cookie recipe with aRead more

Mini Red Velvet Cupcakes

Every baker needs a great red velvet recipe in their arsenal. This is mine. I have tried at least 5 different red velvet recipes, but none of them can compare to this one. It is ridiculously moist (read: lots of oil, but hey, it’s called a treat for a reason) and has the perfect hint of chocolate. Combo it withRead more

Oreo Truffles

Yay! Today is the last day for my 3-ingredient series and we have Oreo Truffles on the menu. Oreo truffles are a simple dessert to make that appear to be much fancier than they really are. To make the truffle center, you just need to process Oreo cookies and cream cheese together. Easy, right? The you just dip them inRead more


Fudge is a pretty common dessert found in holiday dessert spreads. Many recipes have more than 3 ingredients, but to join my 3 ingredient series, I needed to find an easier recipe. This is it! You can make this fudge in a matter of minutes and it sets in the fridge after an hour or so. Then, just cut itRead more

Toffee Pretzel Bark

Chocolate bark is one of those great treats you can set out on your coffee table or counter while people are grazing during the holidays. It doesn’t need to be refrigerated (although if you’re not planning on serving it, you should keep it in the fridge) and it doesn’t go stale quickly when uncovered. READ MORE

Gingerbread Men

This year I wanted to make the most classic looking and tasting gingerbread men I possibly could and here is the result! I used Rebecca Rather’s “ginger people” recipe from The Pastry Queen cookbook and decorated them with a touch of royal icing. Aren’t they cute? In my mind, this is exactly what a gingerbread man should look like. SweetRead more

Candy Cane Macarons

Happy December, everyone! I don’t know about you but I love, love, LOVE the holidays. After we ate our Thanksgiving dinner I was totally ready to get out the tree and decorations, but I somehow restrained myself until the next day. James and I have tons of holiday spirit. Now that December is here, I am going to try toRead more

Tuxedo Cake

This fancy little cake is a perfect for a special occasion and we had just the thing to celebrate – our second anniversary! We made this cake together on the day of our anniversary so I can’t take full credit for its pretty appearance! James made the cake layers and chocolate covered strawberries and I made the frosting and glaze.Read more

Butterbeer Cupcakes

Happy Harry Potter Day, everyone! I know there is a HUGE fan base for Harry Potter, so I wanted to do something special to commemorate the opening of the final Harry Potter movie. I saw these cupcakes months back and have been looking forward to trying them ever since! I haven’t been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, soRead more
