Fruit Pizza

23 Mar



This fruit pizza was an Easter Vigil tradition in the family of my college friend, Trish. It was such a crowd-pleaser that we often had it at other celebrations, as well. [...]

Lamb Cake Inspiration

20 Mar



One of my mother-in-law's annual Easter traditions is a cake in the shape of a lamb. She usually makes her cake in advance, and rather than traditional cake in the mold, she molds layers of ice cream, instead. Unfortunately, a few years ago, the freezer holding her already-completely-decorated lamb cake was accidentally unplugged, and she discovered her melted lamb just before Easter. [...]

If you have a mini muffin tin and a flower cookie cutter, these pies are a super easy and cute spring project! [...]

Coconut Cheesecake and Cookie Nests

18 Mar



As previously stated here, here, here, here, here and here, I love a good cheesecake. Not only is cheese my "love language" (making cheesecake my favorite dessert), the very fact that cheesecake freezes beautifully makes it a welcome addition to nearly every holiday or party I host. Something I can check off months in advance? Yes, please. [...]

With slight modifications, I've also made peppermint Christmas bark and dark chocolate Valentine's Day bark. Shamrocks with green melts and candy pieces, anyone? [...]

Easter Egg Bread Wreath


I have a definite preference for bringing pretty foods to parties and potlucks; I never contribute meat, for example, and have mostly avoided green salads. Even though my dishes are generally well received, I figure I can only get away with donut pops and sugar cookies so many times, right? Because of this, I'm always excited to find beautiful savory foods (bonus points if they're holiday-themed). [...]

Beer Bread Kit

9 Dec



I don't know about you, but I love thinking about, shopping for, and making gifts for Christmas. Even though there's always (way, way) too much to do, I really look forward to this crazy time of year! [...]
