Peppermint Christmas Lollipops


Peppermint Christmas Sprinkle Lollipops As a mother of 3 children, it's fair to say that the events that occurred last week on Friday at Sandy Hook elementary school have left me feeling completely devastated. My heart breaks for the families, friends and the community of Newton, CT. I just can't stop thinking about the heroic teachers and the brave, innocent children, it's like a never ending puzzle going through my mind. Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for the families. Christmas will never be the same again for the rest of their lives. :( My children are my life. It's so easy … [Read more...]

Funfetti Cake Batter Fudge


Funfetti Cake Batter Fudge No bake, no box mix, yet replicates the taste of cake batter. This melt in your mouth Funfetti Cake Batter Fudge is delicious and has a wonderful textured crunch from the sprinkles. Sprinkles make me happy. I love everything about them.

Which then leads me onto glitter, but I won't go there now! :) I've been having the urge for a while to make funfetti anything. … [Read more...]

I can't believe it, I feel so out of touch, but this looks like my first baked goods in almost a month due to that pesky reoccurring cold I had (that I posted about in my last post). I've totally missed baking, blogging and visiting all my favourite blogs. Feels like I've been on some sort of weird … [Read more...]

Last month in May, I signed up for the wonderful Foodie PenPals. I turned out to be 1 day late for the May sign up (boo!) but managed to join up for this months.

Nothing … [Read more...]
