Baking For Babies: Very Berry Oatmeal Cookies

I received a bunch of samples in the mail this week of Enfagrow A+, which is labelled as a ‘toddler nutritional drink.’ Since my kiddo won’t drink anything except water or breastmilk (not even juice! Crazy kid!), I didn’t want these samples to go to waste. I’ve heard only good things about the importance of [...]


A Cake for All Seasons

I love chocolate cake. I don’t care if it’s store-bought, from a box, or lovingly homemade…there’s just something about chocolate cake that gets me. Every year on my birthday growing up, I requested a Duncan Hines fudge cake with fudge frosting. Now that I’m the resident cake-baker, I love to try new recipes. I’m constantly [...]


Brown Butter Toffee Blondies

Tropical Yogurt Pops

It’s beyond hot outside, and what’s a better way to beat the heat when the temps are high than to nibble on frozen popsicles?! Instead of buying a box out of the freezer section, I decided to start making our own; that way I can continue shopping the perimeter of the grocery store and control [...]

Breakfast-Inspired Popsicles

‘ When I saw these raspberry, yogurt, and muesli pops on Lush Loves, I was eager to experiment with other variations on a breakfast popsicle. With mornings getting warmer and muggier (I am so jealous if you live somewhere with low humidity), the idea of a frozen meal first thing in the morning is becoming [...]
