Easter Egg Cheese Ball

19 Apr



Happy Holy Saturday! Here's a bit of last minute Easter inspiration: an egg-shaped appetizer! [...]

Peep Pops

17 Apr



I had big plans for posting a tutorial last night on the braided Easter egg bread that I'm making for Sunday. But then we had friends over and attempted to decorate two dozen eggs. And then we had mojitos... and wine... and dessert (with some calzones and salad, too). And then I climbed into bed before 10 pm (by about 4 minutes), something that I rarely do without putting up a fight. So here we are, instead, with a post about a crazy-easy Easter dessert: Peep pops. [...]

Mini Bundt Cake Nests

14 Apr



We love, love, love our chocolate bundt cake recipe. As I've said before, it's a magical one bowl concoction that is easy to throw together, serves a ton and is crazy delicious. I like to undercook it just a bit, so the inside is incredibly moist. Yum. [...]

French Apple Turnovers

4 Apr



Greg and I just returned home from a wonderful visit with my grandmother in Florida. I have several Easter posts coming up, but first I wanted to take a moment to share these apple turnovers! [...]

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. If you need a dessert for a St. Patrick's Day party, you're just half an hour + a bottle of Baileys away! [...]

Baptism Cross Cookies

4 Mar



We welcomed my little nephew James into the Catholic Church on Sunday! He is an incredible blessing to his parents and to our whole family, and we were so thrilled to celebrate with all the amazing people who love him! [...]

Irish Flag Marshmallow Pops

1 Mar



It cracks me up that kids find anything on a lollipop stick absolutely irresistible. I can't help but notice it at parties over the last couple years, especially as desserts in pop-form have become so popular! [...]

Raspberry and Custard Crepe Cake

13 Feb



Since this is the week of pink and red desserts, I thought I'd share my crepe cake from the baby shower I hosted back in June. [...]

Initial and Heart Sugar Cookies

10 Feb



We already know that I'd be lost without my letter cookie cutters (exhibit a and b), but here's another project to confirm it! I made these initial and heart sugar cookies for a sweet cousin-in-law's bridal shower over the weekend. [...]

Saints Valentine and Germain

4 Feb



Here's a ruby red (er, pomegranate red) drink to dress up your Valentine's Day party or date night! [...]
