My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Peanut Butter Icing

{ Prep Time: 10 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 2-2.5 cups }


1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
4 Tbsp water
1 1/3 cups smooth or crunchy peanut butter
2 Tbsp vanilla extract

1. In a saucepan over high heat, bring butter, brown sugar and water to a boil and continue to boil for 2 mins. Remove from heat.
2. Stir in the peanut butter and vanilla and beat until smooth. Put the hot frosting on the cupcakes while the cupcakes are still hot. Frosting will thicken as it cools.

Frosting recipe borrowed from Krystina Castella's Crazy About Cupcakes
