Strawberry Limeade Cupcakes. Let that sink in for a minute. Sounds like spring and summer, all wrapped up in a nice little bow, doesn’t it?  Yeah, it kinda does.  Flavors like citrus and berries just shout warm weather, and these tasty cupcakes do not disappoint. I was challenged by Pillsbury to take a couple of […]

I’ve found it, kiddos…the perfect flavor to kick off SPRING.  I don’t know about you, but I am about sick to death of winter.  I have had the fortune of being in Florida, Las Vegas, and Houston the past couple of weeks, and got a taste of summer.  Pools and glorious sunshine?  Yes, please.  Then […]

I love being able to say that these cupcakes are Low Carb, though I know the sugar and chocolate lovers out there will be turned against this recipe already. I hope that’s not the case. Truth is, these cupcakes are so simple, so delicious, and so – YUM – that the fact that they are […]

Cream Cheese Brownie Buttercream

No joke. Cream Cheese Brownie Buttercream. To me, one of the very best brownies is a cream cheese brownie.  Fudgy and tangy and sweet and…not on my diet but, well, maybe it’s on yours.  I also love my version of homemade buttercream, which is made mostly of butter, and umm, cream.  Sugar, butter, cream. So…I […]

Sweet Bunny and Chick Round Up!

Okay, okay, it’s more than just bunnies and chicks.  But it’s a fun Easter themed round up, and it’s got some really cute ideas. I really wanted to so a collection with a few things I think would be excellent for carting off to the school party.  It’s tough, being the class mom, but some […]

National Waffle Day…a Sweet Round Up of Waffles

March 25th…National Waffle Day. Ever since starting my diet, I am ridiculously obsessed with Chicken and Waffles.  Not that I wasn’t before, but, gosh, now I realllly want them.  Or Duck & Waffles.  That will do, too.  With a runny egg on the side? Bourbon Aged Sweet Maple Syrup? I must stop.  I can feel […]

Decorating Halloween Cupcakes…on Daytime Blue Ridge

I’ve stepped way outside of my comfort zone lately, kids. Like, way, way outside. Me?  I like to hang out in my kitchen, barefoot, communicating via Facebook, text, and Twitter.  I am perfectly content to do so – I don’t really like leaving the house. So what am I doing? I’ve started appearing on Daytime […]

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Buttercream Topped Cupcakes

reese-cupcakes2

I love a challenge. Take for example being sent a box full of the latest creations from Hershey’s and Betty Crocker, who teamed up to make a variety of packaged products together.  That’s right…together. Now sure, I could have made exactly what was on the box.  But there’s no challenge in that.  No thought process […]

IMG_3505

I told you a few weeks ago that I was headed north to Connecticut, to spend a weekend in Greenwich at the Food & Wine Festival. I was excited, of course…but also nervous. Nervous?  Yep.  You see, it’s rare I travel alone anymore.  And if you know me at all, you know I am PeoplePhobic.  […]
