Cinnamon Bun Photography

I love Cinnamon Buns, which is why I love these photographs by Minimalist Photography 101. Don't you just love that drizzly icing?! Mmmm....

If you have a good recipe for these, I'd be willing to give it a try.

The most unique cake ever has got to be the Asparagus Cake that I found in Sweetapolita's Flickr gallery. You can get the how-to here. I should make this for my husband {he hates asparagus, lol}.

I won't be back until Monday. I hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend :)

Ice Cream Snickers Pie by Woman's Day

I just found a recipe on Woman's Day that I am probably going to add to my collection {their recipes are always good}. You probably already know that I love desserts. Chocolate candy bars, cream cheese frosting, yes I am a dessert junkie.


  • 1 pt chocolate ice cream, softened

  • 9-in. ready-to-fill Oreo cookie crust

  • 3 Tbsp creamy peanut butter

  • 1⁄2 cup caramel ice cream topping

  • 1⁄2 cup salted peanuts

  • 1⁄2 cup coarsely chopped Snickers Popables candy

  • 2 pt Ben & Jerry’s “In a Crunch” ice cream


1. Spread chocolate ice cream over bottom of cookie crust. Stir peanut butter into caramel topping. Drizzle 1⁄3 cup on ice cream; sprinkle with 1⁄4 cup each peanuts and chopped candy. (Freeze until ice cream is firm.)

2. Top with scoops of peanut butter ice cream. Stir 1 to 2 tsp water into remaining topping mixture; drizzle over top. Sprinkle with remaining peanuts and candy. Freeze at least 4 hours.

3. About 20 minutes before serving: Refrigerate pie to thaw slightly.

Planning Tip: Can be made 2 weeks ahead. Wrap airtight and freeze.

Visit Woman's Day if you really want to know the nutrition facts for this dessert.

Masculine Dessert Table by Kara's Party Ideas

Next year, I want to do something like this for my husband's birthday. I love this dessert table, and I love the fact that it's not girlie. Something perfect for guys... sweets, without the girls pink bunting.

Baby Shower Invites by Gracie Girl Notes

I'm in the process of making some friends a baby themed card, since their son just arrived a few days ago. So, to get inspired, I headed over to Etsy and found some awesome designs by Gracie Girl Notes.

I love this image created by Pea Press. It completely describes me! I am a ketchup fanatic, and honestly, I probably wouldn't eat meat without it!

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and I thought I'd share a bit of my own life with you, readers.

My aunt has always been like a second mother to me. My aunt never married, and never had kids of her own. I was her only niece for 13 years, until my cousin came along, and the same applies to my cousin.

Ever since I can remember, I have got her something for Mother's Day. A flower, just a card... but something to let her know that she's not just an aunt, but a mother too.

A couple of days ago, I mailed my mom, my mother-in-law and my aunt a homemade Mother's Day card, using various Martha Stewart tools I bought at Michael's. NOTE: I must limit myself to Michael's because I go hog-wild when I see the paper craft aisle. This year, I have set myself a goal of making all my cards by hand. I feel it just means more than the store bought stuff.

I know that one day I will be a mother as well, and I am telling my husband that I do not want anything store bought. No. I want handmade cards, handmade birdhouses... anything. I don't care if it's completely useless, I just want something that has a story behind it.
