Traditional carrot cake gets a makeover this week with some funky, yet festive, frosting techniques that are all the rage this […] Read more…

Pink Champagne Pomegranate Cupcakes

#TBT to that time I baked cupcakes for my sweet friend Christyn’s bridal shower that we hosted last April, promised to share the recipe and feature the shower, then never finished the blog post. Cringe. That was such a fun, happy day, and these pictures always remind me of DC and my wonderful friends there that I […] Read more…

Gimmie Samoa These Cupcakes

So, I’m super confused. It’s still February, and I went to the pool this weekend. Meanwhile, all of my friends back in DC still have blizzards on the brain. It’s not spring, but it’s certainly not winter – at least not how I’ve come to think of it the past 5 years of my life. I knew I […] Read more…

Bourbon Pecan Pie Bites

So help me God me if I ever see red velvet again. After last week’s red velvet pile-on – however delicious – I have now consumed enough red velvet to last me until Christmas. I needed to switch gears, and fast. Thankfully, the wedding I’m baking for this weekend provided the perfect escape. The groom loves pecan pie, and […] Read more…

Red Velvet Cream Cheese Oreo Cupcakes

Ok, so now that we successfully completed our V-Day warm-up with those gorgeous Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies, it’s time to go full-on HAM on Valentine’s Day. It’s a Code Red of sorts, if you will. Red Velvet cake, cream cheese filling, crushed Red Velvet Oreos AND whipped cream cheese frosting? I mean, if anything is cause for […] Read more…

Rave-Worthy Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies, Two Ways

Well, it’s upon us yet again. That magical (or, well, dreaded) time of year when we have romance and roses in one camp, and bitterness and booze in the other. For one, red signifies romance; for the other, rage. Ok, that might be a tad dramatic, but seriously, sometimes it can seem like a world divided on Valentine’s Day! […] Read more…

Baking it Bright: Cake Batter Confetti Cupcakes

You can’t really go wrong with a fan favorite. And funetti – well, funfetti is definitely a fan favorite. What’s that? Oh, it’s below freezing outside and these cupcakes look like spring? So what. The fact that it’s so wintry and gloomy outside is all the more reason to combat it with some bright, bold […] Read more…

A Brownie & Biscoff Cookie Dough Collabo

Y’all. I’M BACK. And I could not be happier about it. The past six weeks have seen a number of unexpected twists and turns, to say the least, prompting my little P2P hiatus. In a matter of nine days in early December, just as Christmas was approaching, I had been 1) unexpectedly sent to the middle-of-nowhere Arizona alone for […] Read more…

Pumpkin & Maple Cream Cheese Sandwich Cookies

Ok so forgive me, but, like these sandwich cookies, this post will be short and sweet. It’s like my brain is punishing me for extensive overuse during election season or something, because it is pretty much refusing to generate anything even remotely creative. So if this post is devoid of all things clever, you know why. After all of the excessively cheesy […] Read more…
