It’s a little late (almost 11pm here) but happy Mother’s Day to all the awesome moms out there. I made my mom something tasty for Mother’s Day. Something that I’ve been wanting to make for a little while, too.
Happy Jelly Bean Day!
Happy Pi(e) Day!
I really wanted to post this yesterday, a.k.a. Pancake Day, a.k.a. Fat Tuesday, a.k.a. Mardi Gras.

Christmas is only a few days away…and I’ve been intending to make edible goodies for people (and a couple non-edible handcrafted items). Soooo I started last night. I had egg whites left over from making the wine frosting the other night, and had been seeing a lot of super cute little peppermint meringues on others’ […]
