Easy Rainbow Cupcakes for St. Patrick’s Day

Easy Rainbow Cupcakes

I recently bought an All You magazine at the checkout at Walmart. I saw the cover and thought what a cute idea! Thinking it would be hard to make I looked at the recipe and saw that it is actually incredibly easy! I am not posting a recipe because you basically need frosted cupcakes. My buttercream was tinted with Wilton Gel Sky Blue. Then it was simply adding the sour power candy (which I got 8/$1 at Dollar General) by {Read More}

Valentine Cake Mix Cookie Treats

I took a cue from my holiday cookies and decided to experiment with other cake flavors to try and make some cute Valentine inspired treats. Very easy recipe and you don’t really HAVE to cut the cookies into hearts if you don’t want to…I am just OCD like that I used strawberry Supreme and Red Velvet both from Duncan Hines. I am brand loyal because this brand is also recommended by Wilton. Just remember all you {Read More}

  I’ve had a love affair with Cinnabon for a few years, exacerbated by the fact that my sister from another mister, Toni from A Daily Dose of Toni, and I have met up in person a few times and each time we have talked about having Cinnabon for eachother.

Chizzle Drizzle Cookies

I had to come up with one more cookie recipe and all I had were baking chips. I almost made some frankencookies by adding whatever chips I had but ended up using white and milk chocolate chips in the dough and then drizzled chocolate on the top. I couldn’t think of a name that sounded good so I relied on my humor and Snoop Dogg to come up with the name   Using a fork, drizzle {Read More}

Swedish Butter Cookies

I decided this year to try cookie recipes that aren’t the usual cookies and came across this recipe from The Food Network. I didn’t realize that I only had pink and blue sugars so instead of holiday-ish they turned into possibly baby shower cookies? The best part about these cookies is that they have cardamom in them and this makes a perfect hot tea dipping cookie that makes your tea taste like Chai tea! I used {Read More}

Mint Sandwich Cookies

With a light delicate mint flavor and a buttery almost pastry like cookie, this treat won’t hit your sugar overload sensors and they go PERFECT with hot tea :)  I’ve been making these for a few years and saw them on a couple sites recently so they must be good. Some don’t think they are sweet enough but when you are overloaded during the holidays anyway, it is nice to have a less sugary treat   {Read More}
