Announcing The 2015 Cupcake Project + Cuisinart Ice Cream Cupcake Contest

Pop Rock Popsicles

How to Turn Leftover Hot Dog and Hamburger Buns Into Sweet Breakfast Pastries

Sea Salt and Chocolate Skillet Sugar Pie

Skillet sugar pie has been a favorite around here since the first day that I shared the recipe – it tastes like crème brûlée in pie format.

Showstopper Carrot Pie with Pecan Brown Sugar Crust

If you’ve never had carrot pie before, you’re not alone.  I hadn’t either.  I was curious if I could bake a carrot pie in the same way as a sweet potato pie.

Fair Trade Mother’s Day Giveaway!

I’ve been writing about Fair Trade this week – how Fair Trade certification is an important mechanism for protecting and empowering women in agricultural communities around the world.

Homemade Cinnamon-Dusted Coffee Lollipops
