Huge marshmallow fan here! HUGE! Marshmallow Peeps, chocolate dipped marshmallows, See’s Scotchmallows, roasted marshmallows, marshmallows straight from the package… should I continue, or do you get the point!? 😉 In early May, I spent a gorgeous Saturday afternoon in Sonoma with my two dear friends, Nicole and Tina to celebrate Nicole’s Birthday. We spent the afternoon shopping and … Continue reading

Homemade Chex Mix!
If they aren’t out already, kids everywhere are nearing their last few days of the 2011/2012 school year. Except for those poor kids on a year-round schedule. Sorry kids, you’ve been robbed of a true summer! Make it a healthy summer-break, stock up on crunchy and chewy savory, sweet and savory-sweet snacks that are a yummy alternative … Continue reading
Pineapple Upside-Down Cupcakes!
Summer is almost here!! You know what that means?!? BBQ’s, backyard Luaus and parties at the park! I have a hard time showing up somewhere empty-handed. Even if it’s not a requirement to bring something. Add to that the pressure I put upon myself to bring something different. Something those I’m sharing with may not … Continue reading
Strawberry-Filled French Toast with Caramel & Pecans
Breakfast is not a big deal to me. I could take it or leave it. More often than not, I leave it. Unless it’s a homemade sausage and egg mcmuffin with cheese, than I’m alllll over it!! 🙂 Breakfast for dinner is another story! I dig that!! A LOT! Growing up my mom got up early every … Continue reading
Banana Cupcakes with Caramel Buttercream

Neither one of us have been quick to give it another go. Until now. I ran across a quote this week that read, “successful people replace the words like “wish”, “try” … Continue reading
Three-Cheese Mac n’ Cheetos!
Another IG inspired dish, Three-Cheese Mac n’ Cheese with Cheetos, aka Three-Cheese Mac n’ Cheetos! Yes you read that right, CHEETOS!!! 🙂 Whoever thought of crumbling Cheetos on top of Mac n’ Cheese is pure genius! For reals. I am a serious Mac n’ Cheese snob. Serious. I do not like the box stuff. Never … Continue reading
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes!
Somebody stop me! No really, STOP ME!! Stop my brain from over-thinking and stop this overwhelming desire to bake! I’d even settle for a scale back. Baking off homemade goodies every other week, opposed to EVERY week would be a good start! I’m sure some of my friends are tired of sampling the variety of … Continue reading
Roasted Avocado!? Sure, why not!!
If you have an iPhone or an Android phone and aren’t using Instagram, why the hell not!? Instagram (aka IG) is a photo editing and sharing application. Via IG, you can post photo’s with captions describing your picture and add hashtags to post them on other pages. One of my favorite hashtags is #foodporn. It’s used … Continue reading
I know what you’re thinking, Prune Cake!? I thought it as well. Shoot, I’m still thinking it. This post however is less about the recipe (though I welcome those who want to give it a try to do so and let me know how it is!) and more about family, friends and memories. 🙂 My … Continue reading
