Thanksgiving calls for pies... pies galore! Apple pie, pumpkin pie, cranberry pie, pecan pie, chocolate pie! And pie calls for ice cream! Rise up to that call with a batch of homemade apple cider ice cream. This is honestly one of the easiest and most delicious things I have ever made... in. my. life. Please make it.
I was flipping through old issues of Bon Appetit when I spied a colorful, playful looking green cupcake topped with a mound of icing. To say it looked delicious was a gross understatement. But would it really taste as good as it looked? Only one way to find out. . . Frankly, I think it’s better.

The Story: Have you heard about the pumpkin situation? Well I’m not sure if it’s true, but there is going to be a shortage of pumpkin! Ah! The world must be coming to an end. When I heard about this last year, I honestly started to panic because I love pumpkin things so much.

Friday night I did a little experiment and made strawberry rice krispie treats in cupcake shapes with strawberry icing! My husband has been requesting using strawberry marshmallows in rice krispie treats for some time now. I didn't think it would be that good. But Friday we saw strawberry marshmallows in the grocery store and I decided to give in and try it. Then he decided he wanted strawberry icing on it to.
Chocolate again today! In fact, we're making candy bars at the Humble household. Over the last year I've noticed an increasing number of custom candy bars being offered online. Candy makers have finally put a choke hold on chocolate lovers by offering to craft their ultimate, personal chocolate bar . Who can resist that? Chocolate, any way YOU want it.
Cream cheese can make anything amazing, in my opinion. Bagels, frosting, a root canal… I’m betting that cream cheese could even fix the economy. So when Mike and I were at the grocery store awhile back and saw blueberry cream cheese muffins, we had to try them.
I’m siiiiick. If you follow Willow Bird Baking on Facebook or Twitter (you do, right?), you’ve probably heard me whining about it lately (okay, maybe this isn’t the best way to encourage you to follow). It started with a sore throat and has turned into a beastly, phlegmatic ogre of a cold that has taken up residence in my chest and commenced hanging draperies and such.
After a couple of recipes filled with candy (and a chicken for French Fridays with Dorie!), I decided to add some fruit to a recipe. Afterall, Monet loves fruit and since this is a guest post for Monet, she deserves a little fruit in her dessert! I do remember that sweet Baby Ryan loves his oatmeal so I decided to throw in lots of oats just for him! And it’s about time I get back to sweet things for sweet people.
I’ve always had a penchant for sunshine in a jar. Doesn’t the very phrase itself, “sunshine in a jar,” roll off your tongue and fill your mouth with magic? While I’ve never yet found myself a sunshine in a jar, I think we may have just concocted it in our kitchen tonight. In this simple recipe, a basic white cake is turned into a slew of bright colors, baked to perfection, then topped with a creamy white frosting.
