Some of my fondest memories are picking blackberries at my grandparent’s house in upstate South Carolina with my family. We have this thing with blackberries…we LOVE them (proof: my brother’s blackberry jam recipe). They’re not quite as popular as the strawberry or the blueberry but if you taste them at their ripeness, you’ll fully understand why we’re obsessed. Blackberry cobbler is a personal favorite recipe

You can’t go wrong with these delicious recipes.
Last year, Cinco de Mayo was spent with a lot of newborn rocking and zero margarita sipping. This year, however, I’m fully partaking in some fiesta festivities! I’ll be sipping on a Seagram’s Escapes inspired Peach Fuzzy Navel Margarita, to be exact! I’m excited to share a little Cinco de Mayo setup and delicious (and easy) recipe with y’all today. I hope you’re inspired to enjoy
How gorgeous are these Watercolor Graffiti Easter Cookies? This sweet cookie recipe is from my friend Rosie’s new book The Sweetapolita Bakebook, which comes out next Tuesday, April 7th! I’m so thrilled to get to share this sample recipe, it is so easy and so delicious. I’ll admit, Rosie’s cakes and desserts are like works of art so I was nervous that mine wouldn’t hold up
Once a year, I take a post to celebrate something I’m very proud of – Pizzazzerie’s birthday! Yep, this little site here turned 5 this week! WOW! I truly cannot even believe that a little thought I had while driving home from my corporate job (that I desperately wanted out of) one day has turned into my full-time job and allowed me opportunities I never
If you follow my posts for Homes.com, you might have noticed this Shamrock Sour! I’ve been getting into the green spirit for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday with this delicious cocktail! Yes, green beer might be the norm for this Irish celebration, but this Shamrock Sour is so good that I’m sure it will quickly become your favorite St. Paddy’s day beverage. I decided to put a
Are y’all ready for a serious treat today? How gorgeous is this Black and White Pancake Cake! First off, the idea of a pancake cake is downright amazing. Why NOT turn this breakfast treat into a celebration dessert? Shauna Sever totally speaks my love language: sugar. Not just any sugar though. Shauna’s latest book Real Sweet is full of over 80 crave-worthy treats made with
As hostesses, my number one piece of advice is to have a good arsenal of go-to party recipes. Not only is this a must-have for planned parties but also for last-minute drop-in guests. Pick a few recipes, print them out or store them on your phone “notes” and keep the ingredients stocked so you’re just a few minutes away from a delicious appetizer or dessert.
Oops, I did it again. I put Cadbury Eggs in a cupcake. I just couldn’t help myself. It’s not the first time. I did it a couple of years ago for these pretty little aqua cupcakes but I decided the world needed a fully chocolate (with caramel) drizzle version that was even easier to make. Enter these Chocolate Cadbury Egg Easter Cupcakes! You can make these
With the Oscars less than a week away, I wanted to share my favorite little treat to enjoy while watching the star-studded event – Cinnamon Sugar Stars and Chocolate Dipping Sauce! They’re similar to churros if you have ever had them, they’re ready in minutes, and oh so delicious. They’re the perfect star-shaped food to serve to guests to enjoy while watching the award show. I
Are you all ready for Valentine’s Day?! I have one more little treat idea for you! Why not get a little fancy this year and swap conversation hearts for pink- and white-striped mousse cups. I love the striped effect of this pretty little dessert, but what I love even more is how simple it is to make! They’re sure to sweeten up your Valentine’s Day! These striped white
