Springtime Lemon Lime Cupcakes

3 Apr

My friend Jenine had a birthday recently, so I decided to make cupcakes. Jenine really loves lemon (you should see how many wedges she squeezes into her water) so I wanted to come up with a bright, citric, lemon-based cupcake for her. The result was these lemon lime cupcakes with a lemon curd filling and lemon frosting. HOLY LEMON!

Handpainted Mugs

I recently read about a product called Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Paint Markers. They’re basically paint pens that you can use to write on ceramics. They are non toxic, dishwasher safe, and permanently set just by baking them in the oven. I decided to buy some mugs and start decorating.

I have made them before (although only sloppy versions that never leave my house) and my boyfriend loves them. They’re pretty much homemade Reese’s so I’m banking on the fact that most people REALLY like Reese’s so they should like these too.

Hidden Kisses

4 Jan

This is one of my all time favorite cookies, and yet I only make them once a year. They just seem like a Christmas cookie to me- perhaps because they are always included in the holiday cookie tins my mom, sister and I give out each year. This year was no exception, so I whipped up a double batch and here they are.

Decorating for Less: Paper Snowflakes

5 Dec

I’m cheap. Well…according to my boyfriend I’m frugalicious. I just do not like spending money on things that I don’t absolutely need, especially if I can easily make something similar. I’m always way more excited and proud of myself when I make things rather than buying them anyway. This is why every year when the holidays roll around I break out the scissors and cover my walls with handmade paper snowflakes.
