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

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

Pineapple Upside Down Donuts

Pineapple Upside Down Donuts

Do you love donuts? Or doughnuts? I spell it donuts, but I know there is a big debate on how people actually spell it. But regardless of that struggle, donuts/doughnuts are awesome! My husband a while back bought me a great donut pan and I’ve gone wild using since I’ve received it. Who said men can’t be thoughtful at times! You can see some of my concoctions here, here, here oh and did I mention here? Some of those were my first posts so they need to be rephotographed but still delicious! But these Pineapple Upside Down Donuts are by far one of my favorite.  Read more

Yay for Mondays right? I hope you all had a safe and Merry Christmas! Ours was good and pretty quiet which is nice. Sometimes getting away from all the hustle and bustle of everything is just what the doctor ordered. I hate when you have to take 2 or so days just to wind down from something, so not having to do that this year was perfect. We got to just enjoy our little family and set up the kid’s toys and relax for the most part. I couldn’t of asked for more.  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

Pumpkin Spice No Bake Cheesecake Cake

Pumpkin Spice No Bakec Cheesecake Cake 5

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

Another Monday is upon us! And we are only a few day’s away from the official day of fall! I hope everyone had an enjoyable last weekend of summer. I got the liberty of unloading patio block with my husband. I must say I’m one hurting unit today. 170 16×16″ 40 lb blocks by hand. Yup, you better believe that his girl is SORE! But in the end hopefully replacing our side walks at our house will be worth this painstaking labor my husband put me through. Lol, just kidding it wasn’t too bad. But I definitely give mad props to all you hard-working laborers out there! That is seriously some tough work. At least my husband took me out for breakfast to repay me for my kind service.  Read more
