When I started to plan the nursery I wanted to make sure it was neutral and would work for a girl or boy. I am not big on gender specific nurseries with lots of pink or blue, so even though we have found out it is a boy my color palate still stays the same. I wanted the nursery to have a light and airy feel, but chic and stylish - mostly for my own sake and not the baby's. Gray and white is my favorite right now and easy to pair different colors with so the goal was to find some way to paint … [Read more...]

24 Week Pregnancy Update!

Blue Cupcakes

This last week or so I have been nesting... if that is a real thing. I am a cleaning fool and I have so many ideas I want to accomplish for the house I don't know where to start! And boy do I feel like baking. I have wanted cupcakes for awhile so I finally made some with what little I had in the house - anything to avoid a grocery trip! Basic yellow lemon cake with lemon flavored American Buttercream icing... and I dyed it blue for my boy! I didn't have enough icing to pipe, so I just slapped … [Read more...]

Nothing says fall like pumpkin flavored desserts. And what goes better with pumpkin than caramel and pecans? Nothing, that's what! Recently my Granny had her 70th birthday party - a surprise of course! So I was in charge of showing up at her house with the dessert. I wanted to do something seasonal, fun and fancy and pumpkin cupcakes were a sure winner. I have never made caramel before but I knew I wanted to dress these little pumpkin cakes up with some caramel filling and drizzle and a … [Read more...]

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Ricotta Cheese Muffins

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Ricotta Cheese Muffins

I eat gluten free and most everyone knows how I feel about "gluten free" foods and recipes. I personally don't think I need a special recipe or something different from everyone else to have delicious tasting treats. Yes, sometimes when taking ingredients out of a recipe you need to be creative when putting gluten free ones back in. But most of the time? Well, you can just be normal! I have been baking gluten free for years now so I do have my favorite flours, mixes, and know what types of … [Read more...]
