on Saturday we had a “small” family gathering to sing to the boys and enjoy some cupcakes. I say that with quotes because it was only three of Don’s siblings with their families and his Dad who were able to join us. He comes from a big family so our small gatherings are always a [...]
We had more fun weather yesterday. There was wind, some rain and this fabulous double rainbow! It was also the first time I baked cupcakes in my kitchen! Oh, the beauty of double ovens! And oh, the beauty of chocolate buttermilk cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting! Happy Friday!
I’ve been keeping myself happily busy. We had such a delightful break with Don off of work for three weeks that I’ve been able to keep the momentum going. During Don’s time home, and the boys’ holiday break, we did a lot of cooking and baking in the kitchen. I don’t know if his siblings [...]

It makes the month go faster than we’d like. So we spend the evenings relaxing together, watching shows while Don pretends to read (because he ends up [...]
Hope you have a relaxing Saturday! Today I am baking cupcakes and hopefully seeing New Moon. I’ll let you know what I think!

I love so many recipes in this book, it is certainly worth adding to your baking library! To garnish the cupcakes I added raspberries and mint leaves to the tops, along [...]
Apparently I was in the Halloween spirit this weekend. It started with Saturday. I was able to spend some time with some of my stamping friends: Jami, Taylor, Joy, Daisy, LeAnn, Bunny (Debbie), and Sencie. It was nice to take a break after the Christmas card class (which I’ll start sharing tomorrow) I decided to [...]

would you eat one of these!??! Hehehehehe! And who’s counting down to midnight? I AM!!
I made these cupcakes for our family get together on 4th of July. They are called Tropical Paradise Cupcakes and the recipe came from this book: The Artful Cupcake. They were SO delicious! Especially for people who love coconut! The cupcake itself has banana, pecans, coconut and pineapple in the batter. The frosting is Orange [...]
