Blueberry Lemon Fritters

Blueberry Lemon Fritters

Happy Leap Day! Now that is a first that I can actually say happy on a Monday…that doesn’t happen often. But this day only comes around once every 4 years, so one should celebrate accordingly. Technically today should have been my mothers birthday…any other year. But tomorrow will suffice for her. That is cool with me though, I am making her a birthday cake this year and I haven’t gotten a chance to start on in. She is wanting a lemon cake, woohoo Spring has officially sprung! Luckily I still have a little time to contemplate what kind of cake I want. In the mean time since I am enjoying the warmer weather I bring to you these Blueberry Lemon Fritters. Read more

Chewy Banana Nut Granola Bars

Happy Friday my lovelies!! Are you ready for the big game this weekend? Got all your appetizers picked out and game faces on? We are planning on having some friends over and obviously eating massive amounts of delicious food. Appetizers are hands down my favorite type of food to devour. So I’m making a meal based on all finger foods. But since I have a glutinous weekend ahead of me I wanted to close out this week with a semi healthy recipe for Chewy Banana Nut Granola Bars!

Pancake Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream and Candied Bacon

Pancake Cupcakes

Well it’s finally February, and yesterday Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow, so that means an early Spring…which I can handle. Finally though after a pretty mild winter thus far we did get some sort of blizzard here in MN. Nothing to phone home about…school got out early, the wind is sure blowing, but unfortunately the snow has stopped. Like I’ve been telling people, the last few years here it has been pretty mild snow wise. We haven’t received too much of it and I believe that if it’s going to be cold, there better be snow otherwise let’s just move onto Spring! On another note, I made cupcakes! No ordinary cupcakes either. Breakfast cupcakes. Cupcakes to wake up your senses. Now I can honestly say that it’s acceptable to eat dessert for breakfast with these Pancake Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream and Candied Bacon!! Read more

Drunken Monkey Jam

Drunken Monkey Jam 

Well we have officially made it halfway through the week. It’s one of those weeks where I’m so lost on my day’s that I don’t know if I’m coming or going anymore. Seems like I have a lot of nothing to do, but yet end up not finding the time to do half of that nothing. The weekend just needs to hurry up and get here so I can sleep in and do a whole lot of nothing. Which rarely happens, I tell myself that but I never follow through with it.  Read more

Who is officially sad that the Holiday’s are over? I know that I am. I love love love looking forward to the get togethers, baking, cooking, gift giving, lights and just the overall general excitement that this time of year brings. Now it’s after the first of the year and I have to find some more things to start looking forward to. I think this year I am officially going to start a bucket list. Not saying that I have to accomplish it this year but at least start compiling a list of things that I want to do in my life so I have more things to keep looking forward to. One thing I do know that I look forward to is these awesome Glazed Orange Muffins.  Read more

Like all good things Salted Caramel Week has to come to an end. I’ve had so much fun creating and sharing all these salted caramel recipes with you. Do you think this is something that you’d like to see every year around this time as salted caramel is a big holiday flavor? Or is there any other “week” you’d like to see? Cookie week, egg nog week, gingerbread week? Let me know and I can jump to the task.  Read more

I’ve been sitting on 2 bags of apples for a while now and just haven’t gotten around to using them. Well besides making my awesome Apple Salsa!

He knows how much I’ve been wanting one (I usually borrow my moms) and he did what I hadn’t yet gotten around to doing and ordered one for me. What a sweetie! Read more
