Don’t worry about the Halloween shapes, once you start baking with it, it all becomes chocolate goodness. Here is a simple, kid-friendly project that takes less than 15 minutes. Continue reading “Super Easy Chocolate Covered Gummies”

Clean Out Cookies 

Most times on the weekends I like to try and do some sort of “project” in the kitchen with Hucklebaby. I can’t tell you how inspired I get by Pinterest baking projects and how I want to do EVERY.SINGLE.ONE. of them. Most times I have great intentions but get tired of all the steps about halfway through. I’m betting it’s because of my impatient 4 year old helper. Continue reading “Clean Out Cookies “

Valentine Cookies

Sometimes I see Charm City Cake products at Target and I think about grabbing a few and for some reason, I don’t think I have until now. As I was walking around the Valentine section these jumped out at me. While I’m sure I could make much better fresh strawberry cookies…I wanted to make sure I am still doing projects with Hucklebaby with a new kiddo in the house. Plus, only one week in with two kids, I’m still juggling my time and sleep. Hucklebaby has been incredibly sweet to his new baby brother and I absolutely melt when I watch them together.

Caprese Tomato Soup – The Easy Edition

I LOVE Caprese salad. I would eat it every night if I could. Wait…I’m an adult now…I can eat it every night. Insert evil laugh here….. I digress.

Homemade Tomato Basil Soup. Yep, right from the Campbell’s Kitchen. Yes, I took all of the shortcuts. Shame on me… it was so easy though. Continue reading “Caprese Tomato Soup – The Easy Edition”

My Husband Doesn’t Like Lemon Desserts

I’ve known my husband for 6 years and for some reason this weekend when I said I was going to make Lemon-Lime Truffles he informed me he doesn’t like lemon desserts….huh??? You’ve got to be kidding me. So instead of Lemon-Lime Truffles I told him I was making Lime Truffles. What he doesn’t know… Continue reading “My Husband Doesn’t Like Lemon Desserts”

My Cake Balls

Before I ever saw the cake ball machines that are everywhere I started making my own version of cake balls (I still have never used one of the machines). Cake balls, the kind I make, are probably one of my favorite desserts simply because they don’t taste like anything else you can pick up at the store. They are super easy to make but the first few batches do take a bit of time to create. Working with the fondant is the hardest part. Continue reading “My Cake Balls”
