Valentine Popcorn Balls


Although we’ve been focused on keeping Valentine’s Day a little healthier this year, what is a celebration of love if you leave out all of the sweets.  These Valentine popcorn balls are filled with salty and sweet goodness.  They are pretty easy to make and you can package them for class Valentines or even favors […]

Pizza Cookies


This post contains affiliate links which help support Katarina’s Paperie. As always, we only recommend things that we truly love. Full disclosure here. Although the first thing we think of when it comes to planning a pizza party is guests making their own pizzas, we’ve been working on creating other pizza party activity ideas.  We’ve been working […]

Mini Cinnamon Applesauce Cups


  Do you want to know a secret?  These mini cinnamon applesauce cups will make your kitchen smell like Thanksgiving.  And if you make them before Thanksgiving, the scent will linger until the big feast day.     I’m not sure if the latter is true, but they do taste and smell amazing.  I originally […]

Fall Acorn Cupcakes

Fall Acorn Cupcakes

Now that Halloween has passed, believe it or not Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away!  We love Thanksgiving around here – family and triends visiting, desserts to bake and fun craft projects with the kids.  Luckily, not all Thanksgiving desserts have to be hard to make.  These fall acorn cupcakes were inspired by those adorable acorn […]

Pumpkin Patch Candy Bark


Candy bark is such a fun treat, especially during the fall season.  Something about sweet candies and rich chocolate mixed that works well.  I’ll be the first to admit that one of my favorite activities in the fall is to sneak small pieces of the candy to have with my coffee on chilly afternoons. We have created our own version of […]

Strawberry and Blueberry Cream Cheese Tarts


My favorite part of summer celebrations are berry desserts.  Whether it’s berry themed fruit kabobs, delicious parfaits or even pie pops, any dessert that uses strawberries, blueberries or raspberries calls my name at a summer party.  The nice party about berry desserts is that they are perfect for any summer get together – small porch […]

Watermelon Cake Pops


Summer is here!  I feel like we just got through a batch of cloudy cool weather and now the bright sunshiny days are here to stay.  Little Bug has been begging me for weeks to make her a batch of cake pops to celebrate the new season.  I couldn’t think of a better theme for them […]

Surprise Heart Filled Cupcakes


Well it finally snowed. We got a little over 4 inches last week, which for Alexandria is a lot. Little Bug was out of school for almost a week, so of course we baked and created lots of fun art projects for Valentine’s Day. I have admired this type of cupcakes for awhile – the ones […]

Easy No-Bake Gingerbread House to Make with Your Toddler


I see them everywhere this time of year – gingerbread houses. And although I once dreamed of entering a fancy gingerbread competition (maybe Little Bug and I will work on it when she’s older), for right now the simpler the gingerbread house the better. Little Bug loves decorating. And, no, it’s not what you think… […]

Chocolate Covered Propeller Nutter Butter Cookies


I’ve always loved airplanes and have been especially inspired by vintage biplanes. It’s fun to sometimes take the kids down to the park and watch the airplanes take off at Reagan National Airport.  Although these are huge jets, I love to see the wonderment in their eyes at something so large floating through the sky. […]

Thanksgiving Turkey Cupcakes


  What a better way to celebrate the turkey than to create a cupcake in homage of him!  These fun Thanksgiving turkey cupcakes are perfect for a Thanksgiving dessert table, classroom feast or just a sweet treat so your two year old can practice her gobble.     As I’ve said before, my favorite desserts […]
