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…

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…

For better or worse, it’s happening, so you might […] Read more…

Oh Hey, Ombré

I know what you’re thinking. “Whoa whoa whoa, wait a second – no cupcakes? An actual CAKE?! What is going on?” Your sentiment is warranted, but what can I say? I’m just full of surprises, sort of like the from-scratch funfetti inside of this little pink ombré number I whipped up last weekend. And who doesn’t love surprises? Speaking […] Read more…

A “Lazy” Sunday and Chocolate Salted Caramel Madness

I don’t know when it happened, but at some point over the last 18 months, it’s like someone flipped on a “productive adult” switch inside of me. I wake up earlier than necessary each day for coffee, my devotional, and blog/baking research before work; I no longer possess the ability to sleep in (even on weekends after long weeks or a night out […] Read more…

“Crackberry” Cupcakes

Y’all. These cupcakes. I just can’t. Let’s just say there’s a reason these blackberry beauties are dubbed “crackberry,” because they are laced with something deliciously fierce. Try to eat just one, I dare you. My foodie friend and coworker Michelle had a birthday coming up, so I was on the hunt for something a little different to correspond […] Read more…
