3 Quick Glaze Recipes

These recipes are great because they’re super simple and nearly impossible to mess up. You can exchange the primary ingredients (berries, chocolate, and extracts) for whatever you have on hand, and easily change the consistencies to suit your needs.

Homemade Doughnuts

These tasty treats are even better when you make them at home! As minis they're great for parties and sleepovers, and the bigger versions are great for brunch.

Doughnuts. Donuts. Either way, they're delicious. Today I'm sharing a fun and *fairly* easy recipe that's been modified from Martha Stewart's original. Because her version was good, but, let's be realistic - who's going to check the temp of their water, refrigerate overnight, and get up early only to wait 3-4 hours? Yeah, I didn't think so.

The Patriotic Summer Blog Hop : Recap Weeks 3 & 4

I hope you all had an amazing Fourth of July!

As you know, I joined up with more than 30 AMAZING bloggers to tackle the challenge of creating a patriotic project or recipe without using the traditional red, white and blue color scheme! We started the first week of June and the projects have been flowing ever since. We shared over 30 awesome patriotic projects with you, and today, I am recapping weeks three and four. Many of them can used year-round, and especially in the summer. Happy crafting! 

Patriotic Projects without the traditional colors!

The Patriotic Summer Blog Hop: Homemade Marshmallows

Easy homemade marshmallows just in time for your July 4th bonfires!

When I think of celebrating American patriotic holidays, I think outdoors, barbeques, and bonfires. And of course, with bonfires, come S'mores. I'm not sure how many of you have tried S'mores with homemade marshmallows, but you have not lived. I can promise that after this, you won’t want them any other way. This marshmallow recipe is great because it's super easy. It's been slightly adapted from Alton Brown's marshmallow recipe, and I've included some tips and tricks that I've learned through experience. Happy baking!
