Cream Filled Chocolate Orange and Peppermint Cupcakes

Going to a holiday party and want something new and exceptional? Take these amazing, mouth watering, and delectable holiday cupcakes.  These are a variation of our famous Chocolate Strawberry Cream Filled Cupcakes.  To make them easy peasy, use our Cupcake Corer. You can purchase one here.  For the Chocolate Orange Cupcakes, we used Sweet Orange essential oil and orange zest. If you don't have any Sweet Orange essential oil, you can use orange juice. But only add a very very tiny amount, otherwise it will break down your frosting and be a runny mess. A note on the Peppermint Cupcakes:...

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

Do you get all dressed up for Thanksgiving or keep it casual? My family has always made this holiday a formal one--get out the China and crystal, and wear your best sweater kind of day. My husband's family is quite the opposite. Put on your comfies, play football, and use paper plates kind of day. It took me a while to get used to their style, but now I love both styles equally as much, and feel blessed to get each one every other year.  Whether you are going to Grandma's house, staying at home, or going out to eat,...

Easy Lemon Blackberry Cupcakes

  We LOVE dessert! But we have a confession to make...we are dessert snobs! When eating out, we more often than not, don't like their dessert. We come away disappointed and just wanting one of our homemade desserts. Sherrie, Ellenor, Marlene, Opal, and Ruby all paved the way as fabulous bakers, so we'll blame it on them that we are dessert snobs. ;)  As much as we love our vintage recipes from our grandmothers, and old favorites from Sheena's wedding (Chocolate Strawberry Cream Filled Cupcakes), we have a new favorite...Lemon Blackberry Cupcakes. Mmm! Easy lemon cupcakes with delicious blackberry cream cheese...

Christmas FREE printable Joy Pizza Cutter

The BEST Pizza (and Everything) Cutter! (Plus a FREE printable gift tag.)

  Looking for a great gift?  All of us absolutely LOVE these Pizza Cutters!  We use them for EVERYTHING in the kitchen!  Our kids love them because they are not sharp like a traditional metal pizza cutter so they can use them for Play Doh or to cut their own pancakes and sandwiches.  We love them because they work so well, are easier to use than a traditional pizza cutter AND they separate for easy cleaning in the dishwasher! The BEST Pizza (and Everything) Cutter will be available for purchase on PickYourPlum.com on Friday, November 11 at 7:00 AM.  And it...

Fresh Peach Pie

Fresh Peach Pie

Everything is just PEACHY this week as we prepare for Peach Days!  We took a short break from booth preparations to make a delicious peach pie (can't let all those peaches on the counter go to waste)!  As always our grandparents are included!  First, we picked peaches from Grandpa Jack's tree and second we used Grandma Marlene's  pie crust recipe. Firstly, pie crust is a serious baking skill and takes A LOT OF PRACTICE!  This was probably my fourth time making pie crust and I think I finally got it just right!  Here are a few of the bisdom's (baking wisdoms) that have been...

Pina Colada Cake

To continue with our Pineapple Party, we have a delicious summer dessert for you today. Here's Danielle to show you just how easy and quickly this cake comes together: Thanks, Sheena, for putting together such an awesome video!  This Pina Colada Cake is easy peasy lemon squeezy. The hardest part is finding the cream of coconut at the grocery store. Look near the mixed drink items. Ok, I lied...I actually think the hardest part of making this cake is waiting for it to chill in the refrigerator. Once the cake is all assembled, you can eat it right away...but I TOTALLY recommend letting...

Pineapple Lime Slush

 Pineapple Lime Slush is one of our favorite traditions at Christmas parties, and I'm really not sure why we have it in the middle of the cold winter. It is perfectly refreshing for a HOT summer party. It's pretty irresistible, and everyone comes back for more! Good thing it makes enough for a party! ;)  Plan ahead, it does take one to two days to freeze, depending on how deep your container is.

Since we are coming to the end of our birthday week and it also happens to be one of my sweet daughter’s birthdays, I thought I would share one of our favorite recipes for Chocolate Strawberry Cream Filled Cupcakes. We have made these cupcakes for weddings, showers, birthdays, and lots of parties. I originally found this recipe on Pinterest from tidymom.net. It has become one of our favorites. They do take a little bit of time, but they are not hard and well worth the effort. My husband has referred to them as my $5 cupcakes—they are that delicious. There...
