Mardis Gras is one of those holidays that seems more fun to me from afar. I love the colors and sparkle and immense joy that shines through the photos, and I absolutely love New Orleans, but I’m just not a fan of crowds. I would rather visit New Orleans when I can get to lots of restaurants and try all the food, and not be limited by crowds and chaos.

I love Valentine’s Day!!! I feel like I say this every year in my Valentine’s Day post, but this holiday gets a lot of hate for being a made-up holiday.

I still was baking and creating recipes, but the blog writing and photographing are so time-consuming and I just wasn’t able to keep up. But that means I have a lot of recipes queued up ready to share with you!Continue Reading
When I have a great idea for a recipe and it fails in testing, I despise throwing away the failure. I hate to waste all those ingredients! But these chocolate cherry brownies came about from two failed recipes with almost nothing going to waste and that makes me extra proud of these!
If you read my last post, you know that my husband and I tried some adventurous and delicious popsicles at Las Paletas in Nashville, and now I am recreating those popsicles as easy-peasy ice cream that you can make at home! Even though summer is quickly coming to an end, the heat doesn’t seem to be going anywhere so you’re going to need some solid no-bake treats to beat the summer heat! Continue Reading
