Happy Easter! Just thought I’d share the festive cupcakes I made for the occasion using some of the goodies from this month’s My Bakers Box! These are (homemade!) carrot cake cupcakes with store-bought vanilla frosting. This was actually my first time making carrot cake(s) from scratch and I was really pleased/shocked at how well they turned out. I used a basic recipe for vegan carrot cake from “How it all Vegan” by Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer. I didn’t tweak it at all, except for going the cupcake route rather than a full-sized cake. I was lazy and used the only canned frosting […]
After nearly two full years of growing it out, my husband has decided to shave his beard today. I’m sad to see it go, but once I learned of the (adorable) infestation situation… Well, I knew it was time. Farewell, beard. Farewell, chicks.
I See Me! is a retail site that offers children’s books that are not only beautifully illustrated, but are also personalized with your child’s name, birthday, and more! How cool is that? In addition to books, I See Me! also offers a wide range of fun, gift-worthy items — growth charts, coloring books, placemats, stickers, lunchboxes — all personalized for your little one!

Now, Chloe is a pretty common name, so she’ll be alright… But Everly? […]
My Bakers Box is a new subscription box that sends you a fun selection of baking-related goodies every month. Items can range from cookie cutters, to cupcake liners, edible images, sprinkles, and more! Boxes can also include tips for using the items, as well as a recipe or two. The products are usually centered around a specific theme or time of year (holidays, seasons, etc). I was recently sent April’s My Bakers Box for review and was excited to see what was inside! Let’s take a look!
I’ve never been a follower of any particular religion. I was baptized as a baby, but that’s as far as I got. With that said, Easter has never been much of a big deal for me. Sure, when I was a wee lil’ whippersnapper, I took much delight in hunting for my basket full of pastel-wrapped goodies & rainbow-colored jelly beans… What kid didn’t? But once I learned that the whole “Easter bunny” thing was a big sham, the holiday just kind of lost its appeal. It went downhill even more once I hit my teenage years & went vegetarian. […]
