Families are like fudge mostly sweet with a few nuts. Today’s Affirmation: I accept my family; flaws and all.
These beautiful trees are found through North America, Europe and Asia. My sponsor child wrote a handwritten letter asking for some pictures. So I printed out a few and put them inside her Thanksgiving card. I’m actually holding Carolina’s 2015 World Vision progress report photo in my hand as a sweet surprise. Quick Tip: When […]

Would you like something to eat that’s simple and sweet? How about Rice Krispies Treats or Cupcakes? My nephew looked so funny when he was eating a chocolate cupcake. Baby Omari put his face first and ate more frosting than anything. Doing so gave him a chocolate goatee. He then handed the cupcake back to […]
Here’s two slightly different versions I’ve made of this warm dessert that makes the house smell delicious. Check out the cinnamon apples sweetness on the inside. Wanna know the shortcut I use when making this? Use a can of apple pie filling then cut up fresh apples to fill up the rest of the dish. […]
Here’s a quick and easy method that I use to make yummy cupcakes. Just sprinkle mini chocolate chips and pecan chips on top of freshly frosted chocolate cupcakes. The flavor is really rich. To some people it may even taste too sweet but it’s a cupcake for Pete’s sake, so what’d ya expect?
A sweet gel candy from Turkey with pistachio nuts and often coated in powdered sugar but there’s a number of other varieties, as well. You can insert toothpicks inside the precut cubes to serve them. Here’s what it looks like cut in half.
Today is a good day to show someone you care with a kind gesture of some sort. Daddy pops got me a box of chocolates. Turtles are my favs but since sharing is caring… I’ll be munching on these later with my loved ones. Happy Valentine’s Day darling!
To ensure that everyone gets a piece of all three varieties (mint, caramel, strawberry) they’ll go into pretty bags for each baby shower attendee. Working with such short ribbon was a task but I managed to make a fairly nice bow. The leftover candy can go into a dish of some sort. If you don’t […]
Frosting is very easy. Just cover the top of cupcake, add eyes, and stick in a pacifier. It’s already cute like that but I decided to add a mustache. If your decorating cupcakes for a baby girl shower you can make the mustache pink or don’t include a mustache at all. Perhaps, add a pink […]
My Grandma Becky and Grandma Pat both have a holiday tradition of making and sharing candy with family. My personal fav is the turtle pretzel (shown below) which is a pretzel stick wrapped in caramel then dipped in chocolate. What’s one of your favorite family traditions?
This was my first time ever making them, so here we go… After putting cupcakes in the oven, I cut up some fun size bars of Hershey’s candy. Then used a grater to shave the chocolate bars that I didn’t cut. I placed them into a paper baking cup. Then put inside the refrigerator to […]
I like when my sponsor child Carolina writes to me. She celebrated her ninth birthday on July 27th. Her favorite color used to be red but now it’s purple. She is academically excelling in primary school. Carolina is such a nice girl who mentioned that she can now speak two languages.
It’s basically deep fried batter with powdered sugar sprinkled on top. This is from Indiana Beach amusement park that I visited with my family. We went back to our hotel room to eat and someone took a bite while I was digging in the suitcase to grab my camera. Can you see that? […]
Don’t you wish that all people were as sweet as Strawberry Shortcake? Either the dessert or cartoon would do. Strawberry Shortcake on the left is what I grew up with in the 80s. The one on the right is a modern day version but they can still be friends right? Someone else mentioned that […]
Today is my sister’s 30th birthday. I love to bake; especially sweets. She looks so adorable holding the cake I made for her. If pretty girls could hold cakes for advertisements she could be a cake model!
