I am so excited to share this recipe with you because it’s SO easy! With the Holiday season quickly approaching, my time seems to be more and more stretched. I’ve found it difficult to make everything I love if I don’t begin very early or find super easy and fast recipes. The teenagers love to help come up with ideas and especially love to help execute these blog posts. They helped compose this post from typing to editing the photos; it was their first full project. We hope you enjoy this post: How to Make Mickey Snowman Cake pops! [Read more…]
The Cutest Patriotic Flip Flop Cookies…
As Memorial day and 4th of July approach, I love to get ready for our outdoor gatherings and I am always looking for new ways to make the desserts more adorable.

You can change the colors and customize them for anything your heart desires!
