I wish I could take credit for this recipe, but the truth is that I stole it from Betty. Betty Crocker. I don’t even know how it happened—one minute I was Googling light summer dinner recipes, then the next minute I was at the grocery store loading up my cart with chocolate, heavy cream, and strawberries. Crazy how that happens. 😉 But if you’re looking for one more indulgent treat before the official start to summer (or perhaps something to take[Read more]

If you know me at all, then you know that I am the most frugal mofo in the world—especially when it comes to baking tools.

But, when I know that I will be making lots of mini cakes at[Read more]

Happy Monday, everyone! I’ve been sitting on this birthday cake for my neighbor for over a month. Can you believe it? Poor December babies always get the shaft.
