How to Make Crispy Bacon

How to easily make perfectly crisp bacon with this recipe via @snapconf

I know what you're thinking. "Tauni, you're sharing an entire post about how to make crispy bacon?" Well, the answer is yes. I've come to realize over the last year, that sometimes there are things we know that we simply take for granted. They are small things. They are things so simple, that quite frankly execution is second nature to us. I happen to count writing a press release, speaking in public, pitching sponsors and yes, making perfectly crisp bacon among those things. For you? Well, it might be taking the time to measure while you are baking. The other day, I made some truly … [Read more...]

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 http://snapcreativity.com #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...]
