Mini Apple Crumble Pies

miniapple7

I just had the most FUN catering event this week! It was complete dessert spread - fall themed. My favorite.   Twist my arm... um...YES I will make pumpkin cupcakes...mini apple crumble pies... maple sugar cookies...double chocolate thumbprints. And then I will eat it all. I am in a self induced sugar coma, recovering from a week of cookie taste testing and a crazy yesterday of party execution.   I am like a one woman jam band at the moment trying to orchestrate some … [Read more...]

So today's recipe is kind of AWESOME.

St. Patrick’s Day “Luck of the Irish” Homemade Oreos

luckyoreoes

  So I have a confession; I am not Irish. Not even close to being Irish. The closest I get is that I like beer and boys with Irish accents.  Soooo basically I'm American. And 25 years old.   But we all know that the whole 'not being remotely related to this holiday' thing would never stand in my way. Give me green. A couple sticks of butter. And let me get to work!   I knew I wanted something simple and easy - because when you're baking cookies for your kid's … [Read more...]

Chocolate Heart Cupcakes for Valentine’s Day

heartcupcake4

  The secret Martha Stewart in me gets so excited for holidays! I love any and every excuse to go a little OCD domestic on some cupcakes. If I had all the time and piping bags in the world, plus a magic pill that negated every cookie I ate...I would be finagling corny baked goods for every holiday on the calendar - Casimir Pulaski to Garbage Day.  Needless to say I couldn't help myself for Valentine's Day...! And I so wish that I could take credit for the adorable design, but I found … [Read more...]
