I cannot believe Easter is right around the corner! This means it has to eventually start to feel like Spring, right? More importantly, it’s time for homemade peeps, bunny butt cupcakes and eating all the mini eggs! I still can’t get over the bunny butt cupcakes and those little sparkling chicks will forever have my heart!
There’s so much cute that I had to put together a round-up of the best Easter desserts! From coffee cake to cheesecake to mini egg blondie bites, it’s all here!
I spent a few weeks over the summer hopping all over Ireland, bakery hopping to be exact. I completely fell in love with the country, the people and the food.
I learned a lot in a few weeks, including taking a break from everything and getting back to my roots was exactly what I needed. I was completely shocked by how much I loved spending time in the country. I mean, I knew I’d love the city, but spending time in the country, I wasn’t so sure. The only question now is when can I go back?
What shocked this city girl even more were the cakes!
Good morning, friends! Are you planning on starting your Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations this weekend? As I was looking through all my Saint Patrick’s Day sweets deciding what I’m going to make, I realized there are a lot of recipes here, and major decisions to be made! I also thought it would be helpful to put everything in one place. From shamrock cookies, to cheesecake, to boozy scones, to the best traditional Irish brown bread, its all here!
Can we just dive right in and call it a day? I’m beyond excited to share this next creation in the Saint Patrick’s Day series with you, and seriously, how did I not think of this until now? The Nutty Irishman Tiramisu may just be my favorite tiramisu with a twist yet, and you know that’s serious! Coffee, Frangelico and Irish cream all together in one luscious dessert is one cozy situation you’re going to want to get to know a little better!
It’s time to break out the Baileys, friends! The Saint Patrick’s Day series has arrived, and we’re kicking things off with my new favorite blondies! I can fully attest that blondes do have more fun, especially when Baileys is involved! Filled with brown sugar, chunks of Callebaut white chocolate and of course, the good stuff, these Baileys Irish cream blondies are everything a blondie should be and so much more! Go on, take a bite!
I forgot just how much I love banana pudding until last week! It’s one of those childhood favorites that always seems to hit the spot, with layers of vanilla pudding, nilla wafers and sliced bananas. I remember my eyes lighting up as a kid when I saw the big trifle dish coming out to the table. Well, after this makeover, I can assure you my eyes are still lighting up!
The classic got a sweet upgrade with homemade vanilla bean pudding, fresh whipped cream, and oh yeah, did I mention there’s bourbon?
I hope you guys are enjoying the weekend! We’re currently in the midst of another storm here in Boston, but I’m grateful it’s mostly rain instead of snow. Although, once you get over 90 inches of snow in under a month, what’s a few more inches…
Anyway, this much snow can drive a person a little loco. Like in the beginning it’s all oh, a snow day! Let’s bake chocolate chip cookies, make a big pot of tomato soup and have a 90210 marathon.
