Mini Pumpkin Muffins

Hooray! It’s pumpkin time! I feel like I showed excellent restraint in waiting until October to crack open my first can of pumpkin. Last year I was away for a lot of October, so I didn’t really make a dent into my Pumpkin Pinterest board, so I’m making up for lost time now. The first […]

It’s time for the recap of my annual Champagne & Cookies Christmas party! Last year there was a snowstorm on the night of the party, so I nervously started checking the weather about a week before, and it was nothing but clear skies. Hooray! Since I went on a little trip to NYC the weekend […]

Gingerbread, Sugar, Pecan Cookies

Every year I host a little Christmas party for my friends, where we eat cookies, drink champagne, and toast the holidays.

Maple Pecan Granola

My preferred application would be pecan pie, but to get an everyday fix, they’re my nut of choice to include in a homemade, crunchy granola. This recipe […]

The farewell treat tour was going along swimmingly until we hit Day 3. This certain co-worker who tries my patience came over to get a slice of this tart that morning. I had cut the slices VERY small (16 slices from a 9″ tart) and the following exchange took place:

October 17, 2011 Cakes, Cupcakes & Icing

Behold my birthday cake!  After baking for others all year (which I love, don’t get me wrong), this is the most wonderful time of the year when I make whatever I want.
