Easy Peasy Halloween Sugar Cookies

Decorating sugar cookies was always a fun holiday family tradition growing up and I especially loved making Halloween sugar cookies (my birthday is just before Halloween and it is one of my favorite holidays!) I loved to decorate them. All of my siblings were long gone while I was painstakingly lining up sprinkles in a pattern or something equally time-intensive. Read More…

Relief Society Birthday – Forget Me Not Cupcakes

The women’s organization of our church is called Relief Society. It is the largest (and I believe longest-running) women’s organization in the world and this weekend the 170th anniversary celebrations were held.

I saw a bunch of great stuff Read More…

Ahhhhhmazing Cupcakes

Ever wonder how to make great cupcakes? I sure have. While I was visiting my step-mother-in-law, I watched her make some simple, and beautiful cupcakes.

Death by Chocolate

One of my favorite things to do is try new recipes, though I don’t have much time to try them as often as I’d like. But when special occasions arise I like to take the time to make something special and try something new. So when my hubby’s b-day came up I couldn’t pass on these two because if they’re Read More…
