Once again, we had company in town this past week, so I wanted to make something to have in the kitchen for breakfast besides cereal. Since we’ve had so many visitors this summer, we’ve been eating out often and spending a lot of money on activities. So, I wanted to find a recipe that was […]

I saw these cupcake pops *months* ago on Bakerella’s blog, then saw them featured on Martha Stewart. Every weekend I said I would make these, and every weekend passed without making them. So, finally, this last weekend I had my chance. We had a garage sale, and I wanted to bake something to sell… so […]

One of the blogs I frequent, Annie’s Eats, usually has some pretty quick and easy […]
