Jelly Roll Cake

Jelly Roll Cake Raspberry…It’s New Year’s Eve, and I am a believer in the superstition that the way you spend your day is an indication of how your year will be.  So rather than doing a super complicated recipe with tonnes of ingredients and hours of prep work and decorating, I thought I’d share something that’s simple, elegant, delicious and easy: Raspberry Jelly Roll Cake.  You must have something yummy to celebrate with, but who’s got time to be baking all day when there are hairdos to set, winged liner to master, and a fabulous red lip awaiting tonight’s festivities…

Christmas Candy House Tour

Christmas Candy House Tour…It’s Christmas Eve!  We have a new house and I decided to decorate our exterior as a Christmas Candy Gingerbread House. We are the only ones in our neighborhood with a theme like this, it really looks fantastic!  It’s especially satisfying hearing kids outside squealing “it’s real candy!”

Frozen Winter Wonderland Party

Frozen Winter Wonderland Party…My baby girl just turned three, and since her birthday falls in winter, and since she loves Disney’s Frozen, we threw her a Frozen Winter Wonderland Third Birthday Party!  It was a huge hit, she was so excited to see all the decorations and the Christmas tree when she woke up. And bonus for me, half my holiday decorations were done for the season!  Check out the pics, and scroll down to the bottom for an extra special announcement…

How to Look Sexy When You Feel Frumpy

How To Look Sexy When You Feel Frumpy…It’s hard being a new mom. Strike that, it’s hard being a mom, period! So many demands, so much to do, so many people to please and mouths to feed and things to clean. Last on the list is making yourself feel like the beautiful woman who got the attention of your man and began this whole motherhood thing in the first place. Days go by without doing your hair, or putting on makeup, stretching out with yoga, or even just getting dressed…

Freak Show Circus Theme First Birthday for Baby K

Freak Show Circus Theme First Birthday……

My Baby Boy recently turned one and while I was drawn to the adorable circus and carnival themed parties I saw online, they just lacked that pizzazz I wanted for my birthday boy.  Especially because I had to live up to the Great Gatsby Themed First Birthday we threw for his big sister!  I knew I wanted something masculine yet cute, but also unique and maybe even a bit edgy.  I brainstormed our favorite travel locations and my mind was instantly drawn to Coney Island with its delicious hot dogs and ice cream and, of course, the Barnum & Bailey Greatest Show on Earth.  And thus was born Baby K’s Freak Show Circus themed first birthday party…

Meghan, Kate: Royal Wedding Jealousy

Meghan Kate: Royal Wedding Jealousy…You’re probably expecting me to say that I bet Kate Middleton is jealous of Meghan Markle: her public speaking abilities, her confidence, her sex appeal, her beauty, her sparkle in the spotlight.  Or maybe you think I’m going to say that I bet Meghan Markle is jealous of Kate Middleton: her position in the royal family, her beautiful children, her ability to bounce back to her pre-pregnancy body, her impeccable fashion sense, her poise and elegance…but I have something else to say…

Macaroons: Martha Stewart vs Anna Olson

Macaroons: Martha Stewart vs Anna Olson…One of the greatest confusions of the world is the difference between macarons and macaroons.  I feel it is my duty to spread goodwill and educate the masses on the crucial difference between the two types of cookies.  My aim is to save anyone from using the wrong hashtag and looking oh so foolish to us cookie aficionados in the know…
