Snowmageddon 2015 Snowman Cookies with Gramma’s Cutters {Giveaway}

  Seems fitting since the east coast is digging out from the SECOND major snow storm in less than a month. See here in Michigan we are very used to that kind of snow.I don’t think Massachusetts sees that much snow often. We get to thank Lake Michigan for our constant blanket. We just had a storm ourselves And I did what any normal person does in this situation, I made cookies! I once again used a retro style and {Read More}

Gluten Free Peppermint Brownie Pops

About a month ago, the Krusteaz company emailed me and asked me to try their new line of Krusteaz Gluten Free mixes and come up with a Holiday recipe to enter the Krusteaz Blogger Bake-off, so this is my entry for the contest. I was sent some mixes and gifts to play with from the sponsor. Now, if you know me, and I hope you do by this point, you know that I am a chef, specifically pastry as a {Read More}

Vintage Cookie Cuteness With Gramma’s Cutters {Giveaway!}

Every once in a while a product request comes into my inbox that just grabs me. As an avid baker most all products related to baking get a once over from my eyes. However one in particular grabbed me to the point that I am happy to be a sort of ambassador for. Gramma’s Cutters, makers of old fashioned cookie cutters, you know, the kind you remember as a kid, asked me to partner with them and I said yes!! {Read More}

Make You Cry Blueberry Pie

Now, before you think that this is a bad thing, let me explain. Every single time I have made this pie and served it, either myself or kids or their friends stop in their tracks and while they Mmmmmmmm, you can see misting in their eyes. Honestly it is that good. I’m not sure if it is the perfect cream cheese crust, the juicy berries, or the fact the whole thing is made from scratch. Whatever the magic is, it {Read More}

Easy Rainbow Cupcakes for St. Patrick’s Day

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 need is the cake {Read More}

Copycat Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls

  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. One trip to Pensacola, I actually DID bring her some from the Airport Ever since that trip I have been trying recipe after recipe to try to recreate the masterful {Read More}

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 the chocolate over the {Read More}
