Blueberry Buttermilk Coffee Cake

Pin It

Baking a lot of different things within a week or two can lead to some excess, and not just in calories! Having made quite a few things recently, there are some random ingredients that needed to be used up. Not one to waste, the brainstorming began on what I could do with all this buttermilk, berries, and pecans.

Red Velvet Cupcakes - Revisted

Pin It

My friend contacted me to make some red velvet cupcakes for a family birthday party she is having tonight. The last recipe I used was pretty okay, but a little dry. I really am not okay with dry, so I went on a hunt for a new recipe, which is also a little scary because it's taking a gamble since I hadn't even tested it out. After looking over a few, I came upon one from Smitten Kitchen .

Fresh Fruit Pizza

Every Summer through the Fall we have the Salem Saturday Market bestowed upon us. Handmade goods, fresh squeezed lemonade, delicious baked treats, and gorgeous produce all line the rows of the market. My favorite part of the market is the fresh, local berries.

Pecan Shortbread Cookies

I had some leftover pecans in the freezer from who knows what, and I wanted to use them up. I've also been craving shortbread cookies, so why not?

Why I'm Just a Baker and Not a Decorator

I made this cake back in April for my friend Bill. His daughter Sam was turning ten and a friend of his was also having a birthday. Bill wanted it to be decorated on both sides with each of their names. He definitely wanted an Irish theme for his friend because he is apparently a really proud Irishman. For Sam's side he said just do a princess theme, which she then balked at that idea because you know, she is NOT a little girl anymore! ;) So I said I'd figure something out...

Easy Breezy Key Lime Pie (sort of)

Pin It

I wanted to post something that would be easy. Kind of a no fuss yet delicious dessert you can whip up in minutes and still impress everyone. This recipe IS that. Okay, more like this recipe CAN be that, granted you do things slightly different than I did.

I present to you...Key Lime Pie!

Just a LITTLE late :)

Pin It

So I'm going through my old posts and almost every post starts out with me saying how it's been awhile since I have last posted! Ha! It really has been awhile this time. Here's a quick recap of what's been going on:
I found out I was pregnant in March and long story short I've been really ill this whole time with pregnancy sickness and a chronic sinus infection. I'm starting to feel like myself again so here's to actually posting regularly and feeling good!!! :D
