Wheatgrass Easter Centerpieces

8 Apr

Wheatgrass Easter Centerpieces


I grew wheatgrass for several projects last Easter and really enjoyed the process. It's the perfect project for kids (or the rest of us who love instant gratification) because it grows so quickly. Even so, there are just a few days left to plant wheatgrass in time for Easter! [...]

Baileys Brownies

13 Mar



This is officially my easiest St. Patrick's Day recipe. I won't even waste time with chit-chat: for an Irish spin on a classic dessert, simply prepare box-mix brownies using Irish Cream liqueur instead of water.

6 Dec

Happy Thanksgiving!


Greg and I are hosting Thanksgiving in our tiny apartment today, and we'll be enjoying this layered pumpkin cheesecake topped with chocolate acorns for dessert! Greg is working on the turkey as I write, and a butternut squash galette and a pumpkin "stuffed with everything good" will both be making appearances, as well. [...]

Happy Halloween!

Polka Dot Easter Eggs


I just can't get enough of polka dots. Just like the polka dot pumpkins that I made for Halloween, I decorated a batch of eggs with a little gold paint. [...]
