Pumpkin Cheesecake

Just one more pumpkin recipe before the season is officially over. (I haven’t quite determined if December 1st was the cutoff or not.)

This caramel buttercream was the perfect pairing for the Apple Spice Cupcakes. Like […]

Applesauce Spice Cake

When I reflect on my (f)unemployment of the past 7+ weeks, I realize that, in a way, it’s really been a win-win situation for not only myself, but all my friends. You might not understand what I mean, so let me explain. I used to have a job where I worked all the time, as […]
