Zucchini-Blueberry Cake with Lemon Buttercream Frosting

zucchini-blueberry cake

If you’re a gardener, or know someone who is, you most likely have a ton of zucchini hanging around like we do. Normally this wouldn’t be a problem. My kids love zucchini bread and have been gobbling it up by the loafs. But I really wanted something more dessert-like… maybe a cake! continued

Sheet pan meals. dinner is served.

School is starting up again. Now that we have two girls in school, I find myself trying to get back in the kitchen on a regular basis. If you’re anything like me, you’re running around like crazy trying to find extra time in the day just to get things done. With two active kids, I need as many short cuts as possible. Dinner has always been the hardest part of my day, and I have found a way to make it easier on everyone. The sheet pan.

Every week, I park in front of a Smart & Final when I drop my daughter off for her gymnastics class. It wasn’t until recently that I realized it’s open to the public. It’s a one-stop shop where you can get just about everything. continued

Curious event at Sunset Magazine

Just before the holidays I had the opportunity to visit Sunset Magazine and take part in a fun evening of crafting with my fellow blogging friends. The evening was hosted by Curious, a local Bay Area company I’ve been interested in for a while. continued

Quick and easy butter cookies

Butter Cookies

Over the weekend, I was feeling under the weather. In fact, I’m still not 100%, but I knew I had an event coming up that I had to bring a holiday cookie. Normally, I wouldn’t care too much and bring a pre-made something. However, this was Girl Scout leader meeting, so I might have felt a little bit of pressure to bring something homemade. continued

Baker’s Secret Colored Bakeware

When I was a kid, I couldn’t wait for Christmas morning. I would wake up at the crack of dawn, and run in to the front room where the Christmas tree was to see what Santa had brought. After the presents were long forgotten, I’d realize how hungry I was. Getting up at 4:00am does that to a kid. continued

Ice cream sandwiches, Mickey style

Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich

Oh how I love Summer! Living in San Francisco, we get about three weeks of actual Summer weather. One thing I miss about a traditional Summer is ice cream. I only like to eat it if it’s warm outside. I’ve been waiting for warmer weather to make ice cream sandwiches. Today it’s finally going to happen. I have several pinned over at Pinterest that I’ve been waiting to try, and thought I’d put my own Disney spin on it for our girls. continued

Welcoming Fall

September is coming to a close, and I’m up to my neck in Fall-related projects. I’m so excited for what’s ahead, but I still have a lot of work to do. Instead of worrying about it, I’m going to put things on hold a moment and welcome the Autumn-like weather upon us.

I love this time of year. Maybe it’s my affinity for all things pumpkin. There’s no better way than celebrating the season with pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.
