Everyday Is Halloween

Good evening gals and ghouls! If you’re like me, celebrating Halloween once a year IS NOT ENOUGH. I’m sorry to yell but I feel very strongly that when a single day of the year brings you so much joy, that day needs to seep into every other miserable day that you can barely stand to…

Army of Tartness

Well it has been a whirlwind these past few weeks! There has been an abundance of travel and family time and work opportunities and big changes in the future. But we’ll get into that in future posts. For now, let’s revel in one of my favorite horror inspired baking puns, Army of Tartness. I made…

Depression’s A Stitch

For those of us that experience chronic, seasonal, sporadic, or any ebbs and flows that go hand in hand with endless opportunities for depression; let’s call it what it is, it’s a real bitch.

Bereavement Part 2

This past weekend was one of the best that I’ve had in a long time. I made the trek from Delaware to Virginia in about three hours with minimal traffic and (in a new record, ladies and gents) I only cussed out one or two cars on the way! Not too shabby for driving in…

My Hauntingly Beautiful, Rainy Halloween Wedding

My husband and I had been together for just over a year when we decided to get married. It wasn’t an elaborate or planned out proposal, it just manifested itself and became a fact. I am such an adoring Pinterest lover and I scroll through to find new ideas or just to get inspired almost…

Lizzie Borange Cake

Lizzie Borange took an axe, made this cake in forty whacks; when she saw what she had done, she added orange because orange is f***ing delicious. I absolutely LOVE when my family gets together each year to celebrate the holidays, participate in Secret Santa and have that quality time with each other that we seldom…

Ted Bundtie Cake

I have loved baking for years but only recently have I decided to fully immerse myself with the proper tools, techniques and education to really thrive and create amazing desserts. I got married in October and realized that I had NEVER baked for my hubby! I had baked for parties and events but nothing for…
