Salted Caramel Ginger Poke Mug Cake

Gingerbread Poke Mug Cake 3

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

Have you jumped on the mug cake train yet? If not your really should.

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

Italian Cream Cake
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

Pumpkin Roll 4

So I have officially caught the pumpkin bug! I could bake year round with pumpkin if it was seasonally acceptable (which I’m sure no one would balk at that) but I know a few people who would give the weird side eye if I whipped out a nice big pumpkin pie during our 4th of July get together. And yes, that is something I would totally do. Why you ask, well because I can! Read more

Razorback Cake

Razorback Cake

Good morning and happy Monday. Today is my 28th Birthday. When did I start getting so old? Ha no I know it’s not old, and I honestly don’t feel 28 at all, but lo and behold I am now that age. I don’t know what my lovely kids and husband have planned for me today, they are all still sleeping, besides my hyper little 2-year-old. She is sitting here playing with our cat who she constantly pushes to the limits and I’m waiting for the day that she learns her limits. I know it’s coming soon. Read more
