The origins of Halloween dates back to the ancient Celtic and was actually known as All Hallows’ Eve, (yeah, really!) which was a Christianized feast influenced by harvest festivals and whatnot. Halloween Spider Cookies I don’t want to bore you with any more details, but we know it as the day where we get to carve pumpkins into Jack O’Lanterns, go batty with bat decorations, dress up as our favorite princess, witch, or monster, and best of all … we get to eat more sweet treats than we can count! Halloween Spider Cookies Halloween is the most spookirific day of the year, where we go out with empty bags, knocking on people’s doors, asking for treats, all in the hopes they give us the best chocolate bars and candies. Halloween Spider Cookies After all, this is the day where you get to indulge in all the treats you managed to find, like Hershey’s…

  Creating the perfect treats for a party or sleepover doesn’t necessarily mean you have to spend a whole day in the kitchen. You just have to use your imagination, (and your taste buds!) to come up with the most festive, colorful, and delicious treats for your friends. Froot Loop Milkshake So besides getting your house ready, picking out your favorite outfit, and finding a few fun games to play with your besties, (like Heads Up and Reverse Charades!) you’ve got to make sure to pick up a few goodies. In my book, the number one rule of cooking or baking is Froot Loop Milkshake “don’t be afraid to mix it up, there are no mistakes.” Because seriously, how can mixing whipped cream, cereal and sprinkles be a mistake? Imagine what could happen when you blend Froot Loops Cereal, milk, and Ben & Jerry’s Cake Batter ice cream? Hello? Complete and total…

Can you believe tomorrow is the last day of summer? I’m super sad about it because it means no more swimming, it gets darker sooner and I don’t get to travel as much since I’m back in school (Boo). One the good side, I can finally wear my favorite pair of Ugg boots, test out a ton of new fall baking recipes and, we’re closer to Halloween and Christmas. Summer Pineapple Flamingo Cupcakes cakes I wanted to celebrate this day by sharing these yummy cupcakes I made earlier this summer using my favorite sprinkles (how super cute are these pineapple and flamingos)? I found these on a trip to Michales. This was earlier during the summer so if you can’t find them in stores be sure to check online or even Etsy. Pineapple Flamingo Cupcakes My mom’s birthday is in August and she loves pink and pineapples so I wanted to make…
