Pumpkin Ice Cream

Pumpkin Ice Cream

Happy December everyone! Thanksgiving is over, which is a total bummer because I love everything about Thanksgiving. The food, the people, the zero need to stress and get together with family. Every year we hold a friendsgiving for the other “orphans” without a family in the city and every year it’s just a great time with too much food and good people. It seems so counterintuitive that I love Thanksgiving so much, but feeding others brings me joy and Thanksgiving is great for that! This pumpkin ice cream for example,…

Honey Apple Ice Cream

Honey Apple Ice Cream

Hi Everyone! Sorry for not posting the last two weeks, I had a challenging week and then I went and hiked the buffalo river trail and was without internet/computers/technology for 4 days. So despite having this recipe laying around for a couple of weeks, I’m just getting around to posting it for you, and I’m sorry about that because this honey apple ice cream is delicious. I know the weather is cooling down and you may not be wanting ice cream right now, but you want this ice cream. Seriously, make this…

Watermelon Cupcakes

Watermelon Cupcakes

Hi everyone! Sorry for later than usual post today. But I’m keeping with the season and getting back to cupcakes! Today I bring you watermelon cupcakes. Not those vanilla cupcakes dyed to look like watermelons, but genuine watermelon flavored cupcakes made with real watermelon. They are also made with fake watermelon flavor (thanks jello! [this post is not sponsored honest]), just to help bring some more watermelon flavor into them. They’re really really delicious.

Fireball Vanilla Peach Cake

Fireball Vanilla Peach Cake

Hi there everyone! And hi to all the new people! I’m very excited to have you here! I post every Wednesday, so if you’d like an email reminder you can sign up for email notifications. Since most of you were brought here by Fireball, I thought it was only appropriate to make another Fireball recipe for y’all. And since it’s still summer, I wanted to make a summery fireball recipe with some fruit you can pick up at the farmers’ market. So today I bring you a Fireball Vanilla Peach…

Baileys Twinkies

Baileys Twinkies

So the other day, someone brought Twinkies into the office and someone suggested that I make Baileys Twinkies. So here we are. I will say, it took a long time to develop this recipe and I’ve basically been covered in chocolate for two weeks straight, so despite the fact that these really are delicious, this post may not be super enthusiastic about how delicious these are. I swear they are delicious, and despite having a lot of steps, they come together fairly quickly. Don’t be intimidated by them. If you’re…

White Russian Parfait Shots

White Russian Parfait Shots

A White Russian is my mother’s drink of choice and since Sunday was mother’s day, I wanted to make something inspired by her. So I made white russian parfait shots! Don’t be fooled by the picture – you absolutely do not want to eat a whole mason jar’s worth, because they’re super rich. These are perfect to serve up in shot glasses at a party/bachelorette part/wedding/a college party/you know, basically whenever. They really do pack a punch. These have three layers, a Coffee Liqueur cheesecake mousse, a white russian pudding, topped…

Margarita Cupcakes

Margarita Cupcakes

Note: This post – pictures and recipes were updated on  May 5, 2016 Hello everyone! It’s Cinco De Mayo so I made some cupcakes for the office! I’ve been wanting to make these Margarita cupcakes for a while so I was really excited to finally do it. Let me tell you, they are delicious. The recipe is adapted from Brown Eyed Baker, but I punched up the alcohol content a bit – because honestly, who doesn’t want more alcohol packed into a mini cupcake. And you can up the alcohol…

Red Wine Brownies

Red Wine Brownies

I’ve lived in Memphis for 5 months now and I truly love this city. But the last couple of weeks have left me feeling lonely and longing for those easy, close friendships I left behind. Don’t get me wrong, I have friends here, but they’re young friendships, filled with small talk and awkward pauses. I’m missing the friendships with the assumed Friday and Saturday night hangouts, playing video games and crashing on couch. I’m sure it doesn’t help that the weather is finally cooling down, and it gets dark at…

Hard Apple Cider Cookies with Caramel

Hard Apple Cider Cookies with Caramel

About this time last year I came out with my Hard Apple Cider Cupcake recipe which is easily the most popular recipe on this site – especially when you combine those views with my Winter Woodchuck Cupcakes. You people clearly love hard cider – or you hate it and are trying to get rid of it. Well, this year Angry Orchard came out with a seasonal cider called “Cinnful Apple” and man is this cider spicy. It’s good, but spicier than I would like – I like the apple in the…
