Bacon’s family was visiting from Seattle and England so Christmas week is usually jam packed with family activities. On top of that, it was our {Read More}

Can someone please explain to me when Red Velvet became a Valentine’s Day phenom? Last Februrary, red velvet was everywhere. Apparently red cake reminds people of red hearts. I guess I can see the connection. But how does the beautiful deep red cake and bright white frosting not remind you of Christmas? Remember Santa? That guy in the suit that brings presents to the good little boys and girls on Christmas Eve? Know what colors he wears? Red and white. {Read More}

This delicious Pumpkin Marshmallow Mug Cake will satisfy your pumpkin craving in less than 3 minutes! There’s a little boy I know named Patrick who I affectionately call Crazypants. It originally started as a joke. He was in my Sunday school class, and he just won’t stop moving. So I planned for him.
