Nothing screams PARTY like a giant pink cookie cup!

Lately I've had cake on the brain, so I wanted to switch gears and do something fresh and fun. I've always loved baking with color, so I began this project with the first thing in the pantry that caught my eye - pink candy and lots of it!

Fruit pizza is great for hot summer days because it's chilly and refreshing. You can use your favorite combination of sliced fruit or the season's best berries for toppings. I've tried a few different versions, and this one is my favorite yet with its slightly chewy and buttery brown sugar crust. It provides a sturdy foundation for mounds of whipped cream and all the colorful sliced fruit you care to pile on top.



Everyone needs a good blueberry pound cake in their recipe collection. This one is mine, and I love it because it's not too sweet and it molds beautifully in a fancy bundt pan. It's fortified with cream cheese in the batter, and a healthy dose of yogurt makes for a soft crumb.


If you're planning a wedding then you may want to bookmark this recipe! It's an easy favor that has an extra ounce of magic. I find that fragrant teas often trigger sensory memories. Recently I had a conversation with my friends about it, and most of them had a fragrance or flavor memory to share. For example, each time I drink a certain brand of green tea I'm transported back to my old downtown apartment building where artists lived and worked. I like to drink it and reminisce. By making your own tea blends, you can transport guests back to your special day long after you say 'I do'.


Hello, sweet people!

I hope everyone is having a great summer. It's hard to believe that next Tuesday we'll welcome August. August! How did that happen so quickly? Someone recently said to me that 2016 felt like it lasted 50 years and 2017 feels like it's lasted 3 days so far. That sentiment rang true with me. Even though this year is passing at lightening speed, I'm happy to welcome the coming months. August winds down to the most inspiration-filled part of the year - baking season! I've already been filling my notebooks to the brim with cozy holiday recipes.

Last weekend I had a birthday, which was celebrated low-key style with my husband and our puppers. My family and friends always do a great job of showering me with love and confetti around my birthday, but on my actual birthday I like to to do my own thing. This year, I wanted to finish up the work I'd been doing on a French vanilla layer cake recipe (I know - working on your birthday Heather, so weird!) That's how this cake came to be, and how it became this year's birthday cake.

I'm so excited to tell you about this cake because it tastes like a tropical vacation. It's a nice indulgence, especially if you're like me and you're not sure a beach getaway is going to happen this summer (I'm still crossing my fingers!). Blue Hawaiian cocktails are fruity and delicious with cream of coconut, pineapple juice, rum and citrusy blue curacao. It's probably my favorite summertime cocktail ever, and it translates so well to cake!
