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! [...]

Ocean Ombre Petal Cake

2 Jan

Today is baby James's birth day! And since it's a birthday, let's have cake! Even though I intended to have all baby shower posts completed before James's arrival (ha!), I'm celebrating his birth by sharing the details from the petal cake I made for his nautical shower (and ooh-ing/ah-ing over photo texts!). [...]

Sand Dollar Cookies

5 Dec

While you may be up to your elbows in flour, I doubt this is the holiday cookie recipe you've been looking for! But hey, if we can have Christmas in July, maybe we can bring a little July to Christmas? [...]

Happy Thanksgiving!

28 Nov

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. [...]
