Two Saturdays ago I hosted a introduction party for my friend, Jamie’s, new business called Memories Illustrated. I have posted about her business before and how much I love her work. She creates handmade notecards, recipe cards, business cards, and comic illustrations of memorable events. Anyone can custom order pretty much anything for these products, […]

French Breakfast Puffs (aka Mini Cinnamon Muffins)

Sunday morning I was craving something sweet out of the oven. I decided to search my friend’s food blog, Stacey’s Kitchen, to see what she had. Right away I found these under her breakfast label. I’m glad she described them as cinnamon rolls, because the name “French Breakfast Puffs” just didn’t sound like what I […]

Hello, Cupcake!

I bought a new book this weekend that I’m pretty excited about. Ben and I were at Barnes & Noble, and it caught my eye. What’s even more exciting is that this same book was featured on Martha Stewart today! That means I have good taste! I can’t wait to learn some good tricks and […]

Two weeks ago when my in-laws were in town, I made the panini’s for a quick lunch before we headed to Madison. At the end of the weekend (after they went home) we had some leftover ham and cheese slices, so I made us some turnovers. It was nice to have a quick and easy […]

“TCHO Is Obsessively Good Dark Chocolate”

DSC_2709

To my ecstatic surprise, last week I received BlakeMakes‘ latest giveaway in the mail…TCHO Chocolate! It was a surprise not because I didn’t know about the giveaway (trust me, I’m borderline stalker when it comes to Blake’s giveaways) but because he announced only the first 40 commenters on his blog would receive the chocolate, and […]

My in-law’s were in town last weekend. We made the trek to Madison, WI while they were here to see Ben’s brother and wife. Before we got on the road to start our 2 hour drive, I made a quick lunch out of some delicious french bread, maple ham, provolone cheese, lettuce and dijon mustard. […]
