Jar Cake

Jar Cake
Tuesday is my thirty-something birthday and I wanted to make something fun for myself. A little happiness in a jar for my happy day please! These are great because I know that in no way during the week could I make a cake for myself. I can just put the lid on these beauties and store in the fridge until my day. (okay so we all ate one tonight but there is still 4 left...) I have seen these fun little cupcakes baked right in the jar over at Babble and had to give it a try myself. I did make mine a little different and wanted to share with you all what worked for me. 1)Mix a white cake mix as directed. YUMMY!!!

Cheesy Enchilada Casserole Do you need a fast & super easy meal for Super Bowl Sunday? This spicy Mexican dish just might fit the bill. It’s pretty tough to take a pretty picture of a casserole, but I promise . . . it’s pretty tasty! red wine chocolate cake Saturday night, New York City was the loudest I’d heard it in a long time. I should preface this by saying that I live in a noisy part of an already noisy neighborhood and under the best of circumstances — NYU students gone for the summer, long holiday weekend, rain — there’s always a Saturday night ruckus. But this was something else. This woke me up. I swear, I heard a trumpet, more sirens than feasibly possible, people cheering like the Yankees had won the World Series (did they? no wait, something about football?)

SewSweetStitches: Handmade Tissue Paper Flowers and Pompom Garland You'd think after making hundreds of these for my wedding, I'd be completely sick of them. But I can't help it, I love them so much! I'm a little sad that I didn't save a bouquet of paper flowers from my wedding, but I never thought I'd want to see them again. So I made some for home, only this time as a garland... ...And as bedroom decor... ...And maybe I couldn't resist making just a few little blossoms...

So yes, Callye of The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle, of course I’m joining your pumpkin cookie cutter extravaganza.

Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes I know, I know, the potatoes pictured and defined in this post don’t necessarily fit the standard, high-class, French definition of au gratin potatoes, but in my defense, I grew up eating my mom’s cheesy potato dish which she always called au gratin potatoes so that’s what I’m calling these babies. The recipe below is finally the culmination of searching and testing and experimenting with recipes to make a cheesy potato dish just like my mom’s – but sans cream of chicken soup. I understand I’m a bit late to the potato party, considering the biggest cheesy-potato-eating-day-of-the-year was probably two days ago on Easter.
