Pina Colada Mini Donuts

Pina Colada Mini Donut Recipe via @SnapConf

If there's one flavor that deserves to be the official "sip of summer," it's got to be pina colada. There's nothing quite like it on a hot summer day. We've been making coconut pineapple drinks and icy pops for weeks and I thought it was time to take the sugary-sweet taste to a whole new level and pina colada mini donuts were born... So when my friend Vanessa suggested a group of us share mini donut recipes on the same day, taking a yum-tastic flavor and infusing it into a donut really wasn't much of a stretch. Last year's S'mores mini donuts remain one of the most popular recipes … [Read more...]

Martha Stewart Inspired Tomato Mozzarella Salad

Easy Five Ingredient Tomato Mozzarella Salad - The fresh, light ingredients make this the perfect summer salad!

Hey you guuuys! I am so excited to be sharing today's post. It's a little bit about Martha Stewart, donuts, a cook book my friends at Macy's and a really super-delicious tomato mozzarella salad - a salad inspired by Martha herself. If we're friends on social media (and I am sure we are, right?) you probably saw the slightly stalker-like posts I shared last week about my visit with Martha... Okay. So I wasn't really that intense (I hope), but I was very excited that Macy's sent out a copy of her latest book - Martha's American Food - and invited me to pop in for a visit to get it … [Read more...]

Caramel Apple Pie Dip + Pie Crust Chips

Caramel Apple Pie Dip via #recipe #applepie #appetizer #dessert #dip

I have been craving apple pie for at least two months. Really. It all started when I watched Joy the Baker make an apple pie with my very own eyes. Brief side note. If you don't know about Joy the Baker, you must go to her site. Seriously. It's like sweet heaven.  I might have moved on, but we didn't host Thanksgiving this year and I seriously grieved the lack of left over pie for a full week. What's a girl to do? Make herself an apple pie. What's a somewhat lazy girl, with the need to create a dip for the annual dip and ugly sweater party to do? Create a dip recipe that tastes just like … [Read more...]

Gingerbread Popcorn Recipe

Gingerbread Popcorn Recipe via SNAP!

Today I am smooshing a few of my FAVORITE holiday snacks together and sharing them with you in the form of a super-yummy treat! We're making GINGERBREAD POPCORN! It seems to me the holiday traditions that really endure are typically the most simple ones. There are few things more pervasive in holiday history than popcorn (think strings decorating the tree) and gingerbread (oh the smell...sigh). Growing up my mom had a special gingerbread recipe that was on regular rotation during the holidays and now I like to make at least one batch of gingerbread every year. When I saw a recipe for … [Read more...]

Easy Gingerbread Cookie Recipe

Easy Gingerbread Cookies via SNAP!

My Mom loves Christmas. She doesn't love Christmas like other moms. She REALLY LOVES CHRISTMAS. Like, at one point we regularly had four trees spread throughout the house. Not baby trees. Nope. One of the trees was 12 feet tall (I think that one has finally been retired this year). She's the best mom. With all of those trees there was at least one set of new ornaments created each year. One of my favorite tree designs has always been strings of popcorn and cranberries, cinnamon stick bundles and gingerbread. Here's the thing. My mom is a better at everything baker than I. … [Read more...]

DIY Microwave Popcorn

Microwave Popcorn via SNAP! 1

Good heavens. I am the biggest sucker for treats (baked goods, not candy) you will ever meet and this time of year just kills me! This past week as I tried to avoid all of the treats associated with Halloween, I was trying to make a list of healthy snacks I could eat without worrying as much about the calories. Honestly? One of my favorite munchies is popcorn and so adding it to the list was a no-brainer. Did you know that simple air-popped popcorn is only 33 calories a cup?! Seriously, how awesome is that? I don’t have a popcorn popper and I am not ready to try oil popping on the … [Read more...]
