Easter Bunny Cake

My mom’s Easter Bunny Cake is a childhood tradition that has carried on into adulthood with my sister and I. Easter day wouldn’t be complete without Zoe and I arguing over the correct decorating pattern, which even at 20 and 24 we are still sent to a time out before we can continue. Somehow we make our way through the decorating process (whether wrong or right) … Continue reading Easter Bunny Cake

Aside from the pretty watercolor and glitter spackled rainbows and shamrocks there isn’t much child participation. Last year I spent St. Patty’s at a gorgeous cabin on Lake Peppin.

Scouts Honor

Just as our new years resolutions to go to the gym and eat healthy fade into distant memory we enter Girl Scout Cookie season. That amazing time of year where neighbors and co-workers swindle you into buying boxes upon boxes of sinful delight. While on the treadmill the other evening (that’s right I’m still going on my resolution) I saw a news piece on one … Continue reading Scouts Honor

Drunk & Dangerous Strawberries

These strawberries were delicious and addicting. The only thing I would do differently is make more next time! They are so easy and very fun to surprise that special someone for a stay-at-home date night. Ingredients: 1 Liter Flavored Vodka (chocolate, … Continue reading Drunk & Dangerous Strawberries

Discovering The Twin Cities : Enjoy

Marjorie McNeely Conservatory This is my favorite place in the Twin Cities year round. A little green oasis in the middle of the frozen tundra. Stroll through the steamy green paths of the palm dome and check out the koi ponds or visit the famous sunken garden. This free attraction is a must for anyone looking for a serene escape amidst the sports pandamonium.   … Continue reading Discovering The Twin Cities : Enjoy
