Whether you love it or hate it, Valentine’s is just 2 days away and I’ve got a little something for everyone.. The couples, the crafty, the heartbroken, and even something for your sweet little feline friend (because let’s be real.. your cat is probably your soulmate). These are a few of my favorites I’ve created over the years and I hope that you find something you want to try no matter… Keep Reading
I’m going to begin by saying that Valentine’s Day is not really my favorite. I’d much rather celebrate Galentine’s Day or a Treat Yo Self Day (can you tell I still marathon Parks & Rec on a regular basis?), but I suppose I can get behind the whole chocolate and dessert splurging that comes along with the day. Since I rarely celebrate it I decided this year I would go… Keep Reading
I’ve never been a huge fan of Valentine’s Day, but I am a fan of the chocolate covered cherries and strawberries that seem to be in abundance this time of year! They sparked the idea to use an old recipe of mine for chocolate ale cupcakes, but this time I upped the chocolate factor by using a delicious chocolate porter from Three Creeks Brewing Co. The cake came out rich,… Keep Reading
Last year one of the most popular posts was for the decadently delicious Boozy Brownies with Salted Caramel Rum Sauce! Since then I’ve been trying to think of a way to top them and I realized.. I can’t! They’re just TOO good! Instead I’m giving you guys a variation of the original with these Rum Spiked Red Velvet Swirl Brownies! Spiked with a healthy dose of rum and a cream… Keep Reading
We’ve all had our hearts broken a time or two and have probably crushed a few hearts along the way as well. We can all agree that no matter which part you play, the feeling (for lack of a better expression) completely sucks! Instead of wallowing in your misery, get back on your feet, and make yourself a drink to celebrate! You’ve got a fresh start and there’s no sense in wasting it by feeling… Keep Reading
I don’t know about you guys, but Valentine’s Day kind of makes me sick. Even when I’m very much in love, this holiday is still not a favorite of mine… The sickening amounts of heart shaped candy, the large pointless teddy bears, and stupid chubby baby decor everywhere. I guess you can call me the Scrooge of Valentines Day. I did a bit of brainstorming and decided to kind of… Keep Reading
Valentine’s Day is just a few days away and if you’re still struggling with finding the perfect gift, look no further! Check out my Sailor Jerry Single Drink Kit over at SailorJerry.com!
To say that these cookies are premeditated is the understatement of the century. I drew up the idea for them last year, but about a week too late since Valentine’s Day had already passed. I’m extremely excited to finally share them with you today! I love love, but too much of it shoved in your face around Valentine’s Day, can make even the most romantic person a bit sick! My… Keep Reading
I know everyone is gearing up for the Super Bowl today so I’m keeping this short and sweet.. just like these cookies! Okay.. that was a really bad joke. Anyway, red velvet cupcakes are one of my favorites, so I decided to adapt my recipe into cookie form for Valentine’s Day!
In case you haven’t noticed the tacky teddy bears and heart shaped boxes of chocolate popping up everywhere, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Even though I won’t be spending Valentine’s Day alone, I’m still not fond of this holiday, so I’m getting my cutesy themed post out of the way for you guys. I used my go-to low-fat vanilla cake recipe and topped them off with cherry frosting… Keep Reading
Sailor’s Sweetheart Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so celebrate with a Sailor’s Sweetheart! It’s sweet, but still has a bite.. which are the qualities you would want in your Valentine anyway right? ; )
Yep.. you read that right.. chocolate covered bacon. Do I really need to write out an enticing intro to get you to read more? I think not! But… I will. Men are so tough to buy gifts for on Valentine’s Day , but can you really go wrong with bacon?!? NOPE! Present your man with a Ron Swanson-worthy plate of thick cut bacon, dipped in dark chocolate!
Refillable Catnip Heart Toy Most of us treat our pets like little fur children and that’s totally okay, so long as you don’t have 24 cats, never change out of your bathrobe, and you dress them up.. With Valentine’s Day coming up I thought it would be fun to make something for Punk and since a friend just gave us a HUGE bag of catnip, I couldn’t think of anything more perfect!… Keep Reading
Red Velvet Oreo Chunk Cupcakes with Cookies and Cream Frosting With Valentine’s Day approaching I thought it would be fun to combine my recent craving for Oreos with my other love, red velvet cupcakes! The warm and velvety cake and the crunch from the Oreo’s make an irresistible combination! So ignore your New Year’s Resolution for one day and indulge.. you can always leave angry comments later about how I’m… Keep Reading
