    Good morning dear fans!


    I was a bit under the weather over the weekend so this week’s inspiration post comes a day late, but still in time for a cheerfully green St. Patrick day celebration :)

    This idea of luck elixir in fun colored vintage bottles seems is a fun way to decorate for Spring, add a  bit of airiness and freshness to your indoors.

    {Tutorial and FREE printables here}


    What would St. Patty’s be without green yummies right? I love this ombre cake from I am baker, and these free printable toppers  from Allen Designs are to die for.

    Enjoy!

    I am a chocolate girl through and through so when a coworker brought these little babies in I gasped at the chocolaty richness of this humble cookie.

    The simplicity  is refreshing after all the cut out cookies, you just mix, scoop, dip and roll.

    Sugar cookies are a must in our house. This year, I did not have time to put icing on them at all so we just “decorated” with different Christmas themed sprinkles prior to baking. The little one had a blast and there was sugar everywhere :)

    There are many sugar cookie recipes out there but the one from Sweetopia works really well for me. Both Sweetopia and Sugarbelle have amazingly helpful decorating tips.


  7. Holiday baking: Almond Linzer cookies

    We had a hectic weekend of baking at our house. This year I decided to combine two of my favorite cookie recipes with two new ones for our holiday cookie tins.

    I give these out to coworkers, friends and so on.

    These linzer cookies were one of the two new recipes I wanted to try. I purchased the Wilton Lizer Cookie Cutters a while back but didn’t have a chance to try them out until now.

    This recipe from Real Simple worked great and the cookie dough was really easy to work with. The only thing I would change for next time: I don’t think I will toast the almonds next time, they make the almond flavor overpowering.

    I decked out our holiday tins with tags from our Gingerbread Man Free Printable set here.
