Coconut Tres Leches Cake

Tres Leche Cake2

I have a case of the Monday’s. I woke up out of a dead sleep this morning with definitely not enough sleep. I’m one of those types of people who don’t require an alarm clock to get up at the time that they need. Which mine is around 7:00-7:15 every morning to get the kids up and ready for school. Usually I wake up gracefully and slowly and am able to acclimate to the time, not this morning. It was like my body knew that I was going to be late because I was so tired that it woke up in a panic at 7:09 and didn’t know what to do. So needless to say I’m having a slow going morning that calls for a delicious slice of this Coconut Tres Leches Cake. Read more

Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookie Cake

Happy Day after Valentines Day! Also known as, better stock up on all the clearance candy ASAP Day! I hope you all had an amazing love filled day. I had a horrible day. What I have avoided doing my whole entire existence happened. Now I’m going to admit, I’m one of those gals who likes to browse Pinterest or the news on their phone while taking a nice long bubble bath. My husband ALWAYS told me that I would drop that thing in there one day while I was browsing. Do you think that happened to me yesterday? Nope, not exactly! Although my phone DID take a nice bath, it was because it fell out of my pocket while I was draining the bath for my daughter. WHAT ARE THE CHANCES!!! Come on now! So in light of my awful, dead phone, unhappy candy day I just wanna sit here and bask in the glory that is this Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookie Cake. Read more

So it snowed last night. It was our first storm of year here in Minnesota. Like always, we all forget how to drive in the winter and essentially school is 2 hours late. Kids are freaking ecstatic. Too bad this lady was so messed up and forgot how 2 hour late worked and I got them up ad ready a whole 1.5 hours early….sorry kiddos. Usually I’m not a snow person, but this has put me in the mood for Christmas and the mood to continue on with our Salted Caramel Week!! Read more

I can’t believe that it’s already Thursday! I’m so excited for this week to be done! My husband and myself are going away on a little mini vacation this weekend across the state and over into Wisconsin and I am so excited. With all the craziness going on and not seeing my husband too often these days because he’s been so busy at work, this is well deserved but even more well needed. PLUS it’s supposed to be in the upper 70’s! Who could ask for a better outcome!  Read more

o do you guys remember when I tell you about how I make something and I get so upset because it’s not pretty or my pictures didn’t turn out the way I wanted them to so I end up not posting it on the blog? Well I couldn’t pass up the opportunity on this one. Now this was one of my not so pretty creations but it tasted so good that I couldn’t not post it, so I’m going to share it with you, ugly pictures and all. Poor thing, I’m demeaning it, but it is pretty on the inside and that’s what counts! Read more
