4th of July Dessert Ideas

June 28, 2020 in bars, brownies, cookies, misc. - No Comments

4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. In the Pacific Northwest, it seems to mark a turning point in the weather. It’s like summer has now officially arrived. (Although more times than not, we have low 70-degree weather and FREEZE watching the fireworks.) Another reason I love this…

Spring Fondant Toppers

April 19, 2020 in cupcakes, misc. - 2 Comments

Our neighborhood got together last Sunday afternoon. We grabbed out chairs and sat around our cul-de-sac, keeping our 6 foot distance. It almost felt normal. We chatted, laughed, and ate. I made vanilla cupcakes with these spring fondant toppers to share with everyone. If you’ve never made fondant toppers, they…

Dinosaur Birthday Party

August 16, 2019 in Chilled Desserts, cookies, misc. - No Comments

My son, Matthew, turned 9 last month and wanted to have a dinosaur-themed birthday party.  Specifically Jurassic Park. (For his 5th birthday, we had a dinosaur party, but wanted to make this one different.)

Easter Dessert Ideas

Potato Salad

June 25, 2018 in misc., salad - No Comments

Picnics and barbeques are some of my favorite summer activities.  Our summers in the Pacific Northwest are pretty mild, so we take advantage of all opportunities to get outside and enjoy the sun.  The kids have just figured out how fun squirt guns are, so I feel like I am…

Matthew’s 7th Birthday

August 8, 2017 in cakes, misc., musings - 1 Comment

Seven is supposed to be a lucky number, I told Matthew today.  So, since you just turned 7, this should be a really great year.  He was unimpressed.  I’m slowly, and sadly, beginning to realize that the older he gets, the more uncool I become.  When did being 7 get…
