Easter Basket Cupcake Bouquet

Easter Basket Cupcake Bouquet

Tweet Almost a year ago, I posted my now Pinterest-famous guide to making cupcake bouquets. I had seen photos of similar bouquets floating around Pinterest, but never found a good tutorial on making them, so I figured it out and put together my own. I guess I wasn’t the only one who loved the...

Recipe: Ranch hummus

Tweet Hummus is one of my go-tos when I want a great snack. It’s healthy, tasty, and filling, plus it goes so well with so many things – veggies, pita bread, crackers, tortilla chips…the list goes on. I bake so much that I need regular breaks from sugar and make sure to eat healthy...

Recipe: Faux churros with Mexican chocolate sauce

Tweet If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen the (not very pretty) Iphone photo I posted of 2 wannabe churros the other night.
