My birthday was this past Saturday. I love birthdays. I love anyone’s birthday, but I’m not gonna lie…I love mine the most! Who doesn’t love their own birthday best?! I had planned to have a very laid back birthday this year, i.e. no cake. I thought a few simple, but delicious cupcakes would suit me […]...

In all honesty, we’re not big Valentine’s Day celebrators in our house. We’re a pretty close family, so Valentine’s Day is more of a chance to eat special sweets and get crafty than it is anything else. We never spend money for Valentine’s Day…only handmade cards allowed. It’s been a tradition for several years now, […]...

Once again, I present a recipe that is actually rooted in a food dislike of mine: eggnog. I have never liked eggnog. Unfortunately, the hubster loves it. It’s unfortunate because I have a bad habit of not buying what I don’t like…so he misses out. Our boy loves it too. He says it’s his favorite […]...

When we lived in Vermont, I had real maple syrup for the very first time. Well, that’s not entirely true… I’d had it before but it had been low quality and I was convinced I didn’t like it. Then we moved to The Maple Syrup Capital of the World: Vermont. The whole maple sugar process […]...

I had a certain post in mind today. Something new that I’d like to see on here as a regular monthly post, but, as it often does, life got in the way and I needed to do something else for today. That’s why… …yesterday, I decided to make a cake. I knew right away what […]...
