Happy Birthday to me, happy birthday to me!! Today I’m 36 years super-old. Geesh! Where did time go? Back in high school my best friend and I would skip school on my birthday, go to the pool and lather ourselves in baby oil to get that awesome burn tan, all while smoking some Marlboro Reds. My how things change! These days I’m lathering myself with SPF 100 to fight the wrinkles all while chasing around my 3 kids.

 Who doesn’t like little pop-able bites of creamy avocado and cheesy yumminess? Exactly! Chips and cheese have been awesome since the beginning of time so I’m not trying to reinvent the wheel here, just making the ride a little smoother.

Blueberries N Cream Cupcakes

Light and Fluffy Blueberries N Cream Cupcakes with a light whipped cream topping. So delicious they will melt in your mouth; the perfect Spring treat! 

Blueberries N Cream Cupcakes

 These cupcakes were inspired by Martha. THE Martha, you know the one. The Martha that roasts Justin Bieber. The Queen of dirty looks. The Martha that served time in jail. So needless to say I didn’t change much with this recipe; but it was to good not to share.  I did make a few adjustments to the sugar, the blueberries and the portion size. I have a feeling that I’m going to have a bad Martha Stewart dream tonight, She’s going to be beating me with a whisk or something for changing her recipe :)

the sweet life

Spring is finally here! And I couldn’t be happier and more relieved. I was beginning to feel like a caged animal in my house with the kids who were acting like wild animals! Winter can be tough when you’re cooped up for long periods of time. Which is why when I saw this little blue glove the other day it made me smile. I knew this little blue glove was ours because I remember the day it went missing and how cold little Annie’s hands were on that winter jog.  [Read more…]

I’ve actually woken up at 4am dreaming these little beauties and they were worth the sleepless nights #foodbloggerproblems . There was some stress here though. I was worried. I wanted a firm crust. Not to crumbly. I wanted to be able to peel back the cupcake wrapper and have a compact little treat. And after some trail and error…TA-DA! Here they are
