My Blog’s New Look

I’m warding off Alzheimer’s! This whole blogging process challenges my mind every single day. I was never a tech-savvy person. In fact, when one of my tech-y friends found out about my blog, he laughed and said, “Of all my friends, you are the last one I would’ve predicted to have a successful online pursuit.” […]

Funfetti Blondies

One of my friends is a first-year kindergarten teacher. She wanted to bring in a treat for the kids, to celebrate the end of their school year.

Calling all Taste-Testers!

Too many desserts! I know what you’re thinking: No such thing as too many desserts! Well, there is if you’re trying to organize a page of Chocolate-Covered Recipes. I have so many recipes, and they fit into so many different categories, that I’m at a loss in terms of how to best organize them. If […]

Snickerdoodle Blondies

I have the best job. Not everyone’s job description includes making snickerdoodle blondies.  But yesterday morning, I was forced to do just that. When I threw the idea out on Twitter, there was such an excited response that I just couldn’t let everyone down. And so, still in my pjs, I set about making a gigantic […]

Blue Velvet Cupcakes – No food coloring needed!

People love Red Velvet. But why does it have to only be red velvet? What about green velvet, purple velvet, or—dare I say it—blue velvet? When I was asked to make cupcakes for a boy baby shower, I figured it was the perfect opportunity to try my hand at blue velvet cupcakes. However, two problems […]

Well, some of them made me cry, but in a constructive way; sometimes it’s good to cry.
