Root Beer Float Cookie Bars

I had so much fun experimenting with these yummy summer treats! As we’ve had some record high temperatures over the past few days, it seemed the perfect time to combine fun summer flavors and ice cream into my weekly baking! I wanted to bake the perfect root-beer flavored cookie layer to pair with a top…

Heavenly Vanilla Cupcakes

This recipe is a major throwback to poolside days under the hot summer sun. When I was a kid, a family friend would make these little angels and bring them to the pool for some post-swim lesson snacking for us kiddos. These cupcakes still take me back every time I sink my teeth into one….

Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Ah, cookie dough cupcakes. Where do I even begin? Cookie dough combines all of the best ingredients in this world: Butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, chocolate chips…need I say more? It’s not a wonder that egg-free cookie dough has become a snacking staple for the food world in recent years; pretty much anything tastes good…

Super Simple Fruit Tarts

It’s beginning to feel a lot like…SUMMER! Ok, maybe I’m getting a little bit ahead of myself, as it is only the 4th day of May. But, it sure does feel like summer outside! Oh, how I have enjoyed the warm sun, green grass, fresh air and lovely flowers over the past week. The spring/summerish…

Cherry Blossom Petit Fours

Quaran-tea! That’s what I’ve been doing over the past week. My husband and I had wonderful carryout tea time last Saturday in celebration of our birthdays (which are 3 days apart!), and I have had tea on the brain ever since! So this week, I decided to try my hand at the delicate but difficult…

Chocolate Frosted Brownies

When I was a kid, I didn’t like brownies. Shocking, I know. I was a strange kid. But now, looking back, I feel like the reason I never really cared for brownies was probably because when I did try them, they were just some dry, crusty ones from a boxed mix. Not saying that all…

Raspberry Lemonade Cookies

Spring has sprung! Although most of us across the nation are camped out in our homes right now, there are still some fun ways to celebrate spring from inside, one of which is baking! For me, baking is an escape from the real world for a few hours as I measure, mix, design and create….

Lovely Lime Cupcakes

As St. Patrick’s Day approached this year, I pondered what flavor of cupcake I could produce that could be colored green but also flavored with something naturally green. And, since broccoli cupcakes do not sound very appetizing to me, it proved to be a slight challenge. But after searching for some “Pinspiration”, I formulated an…

Peanut Butter S’more Cookies

I can say with confidence that s’mores are one of my favorite desserts. Ever. The combination of toasted marshmallow, milk chocolate and graham crackers will probably be forever at the top of my list. Right under s’mores themselves would have to be anything s’more inspired. So as I thought to myself about what to bake…
