Pina Colada Cupcakes

There are simply not enough boozy cupcakes in the world. Or at least, ones that I have found. I’d like to change that. Everyone likes cupcakes and why not spice them up a bit with some alcohol? Of course, this probably wouldn’t work if you were making cupcakes for children, […]

#EasterWeek: Lemon Coconut Bars

Lemons make me so happy. I know that sounds silly, but I absolutely love baking with them because they remind me of spring. And yesterday just so happened to be the first day of spring. (Not like Mother Nature remembered that with the weather we’ve had…) šŸ˜   The second […]

Blueberry Coconut Muffins

Have you tried coconut water yet? I was never a big coconut person, it was a take-it-or-leave-it flavor for me until one day Tom and I were walking around Costco and they were giving out samples of coconut water. It was only a few days earlier I had overheard someone […]
