One Stop Halloween Shop!

I can't believe two weeks ago I was in flip flops and today I'm turning on the heat.  Yep, it's time to shift gears to Fall and of course Halloween.  It was easy to turn these favors into Tricks and Treats, with the help of Oriental Trading, your One Stop Halloween Shop!

Mummy Cake with Edible Gauze!

I would like to start this post by saying how much thought and intricate planning went into the making of this Mummy Cake.  Only I can't.  In reality and as my mom would say...
"it was a happy mistake".  I didn't plan to make a Mummy Cake at all, but when I made a mess of another project, this is what happened...

Mocha Cookie Recipes!

With today being National Coffee Day, I thought I should share the two mocha cookie recipes I used in the Starbucks giveaway.  Even if you didn't you're a winner, so grab a cup of coffee, a mixing bowl and start baking!

Pumpkin Patch Cookies!

You probably guessed when I was making the chocolate covered apple cookies stand, they wouldn't be the last of my standing cookies.  I'm afraid it's only the beginning because I keep coming up with things I can make these cookies.

Leopard Party Table!

The guest of honor is quite stylish, so I thought including a leopard necklace was only appropriate.  It also served as the backdrop for the dessert table.

Trending Now - Black and Gold Pumpkins!

It's taken awhile to get these designs out of my head and on to cookies...Trendy Black and Gold Pumpkin Cookies.  In catalogs and on store shelves everywhere, I have seen black and gold was only a matter of time until they would become cookies.
Would you believe me if I told you I used only ONE cutter for all six cookies?
Well I did and I'll show you how.

I don't know about you, but I'm hooked, addicted or what ever you want to call it, on Starbucks.  It's the reason I find it easy to get up in the morning AND sometimes the reason I can't sleep at night.  Every morning it's ready to go at the push of a button, in the dark and with my eyes closed. 
Today, I decided to share my love of Starbucks with you and host a giveaway with creations to look, taste and smell like coffee.  Not to mention the gift card and mugs.

Gourmet Apple Cookies!

Without hesitation, I can say a chocolate covered caramel apple is one of my favorite desserts.  Even with all the sweets in my kitchen, I find myself craving one of those big chocolate covered caramel apples you can buy.  Because the base is an apple and I choose the one covered with dark chocolate, it's good for you.  I always tell myself that.
While staring from the selection of apples covered with just about everything imaginable, I got to thinking about cookies.  Gourmet Apple Cookies to be exact and I thought, why not?

"WHOO" Knew Something So Cute Could Taste So Good??

I don't know if you got it, but this is "WHOO" I'm talking about.  A homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Owl.  It's so cute, I wanted to name it.  But then I couldn't eat it, because you really should not eat anything you've named, right?
