Butterscotch Pancakes & Salted Caramel Sauce

So I made blondies a few weeks ago, and I had all of these leftover butterscotch chips. I racked my brain about a gazillion times, and I finally came up with something to use them in - Butterscotch Pancakes. Then, I had the concern that maybe maple syrup and butterscotch wouldn't pair so well. I'm not an expert though, they might. However, I decided to make some caramel sauce to go with it.

Paint Splatter Birthday Cake - Happy Birthday to ME!

So...Today's my birthday! When I got up this morning, there were little notes stuck all over the house that said "Happy Birthday" on them. I think Hubby was more excited than I was. I told my friend that I've been having a quarter-life crisis. She is five years older than me, so she had no sympathy for me. Oh well. I made myself a cake!

DIY Country Centerpieces

So, I've had this centerpiece sitting on my kitchen table for almost 3 years, and I finally decided to show it off to ya'll. However, I wanted to show you how to make it, too. The problem is, I didn't make it. My mother-in-law did. She actually made quite a few of them for my rehearsal dinner for my wedding. So in order to show ya'll how to make one, I had to take mine apart and put it back together. Good thing she didn't use any glue!

Cookies for Breakfast? You Betcha!

How do you feel about dessert for breakfast? Me? Well, I'm kind of on the fence. I mean, I love donuts, but I'd rather have them for dessert than breakfast. Cookies, however, well, I'm all for that!

I've seen tons of different recipes of breakfast cookies, and I wanted to try my own. So, for inspiration I traipsed through the oatmeal aisle at the grocery store. I noticed that maple brown sugar seemed to be a popular flavor {I'm not into flavored oatmeal, so I don't know}. It also seemed to be the easiest to transform into a cookie, although apple cinnamon would probably be easy too. I'm not an apple cinnamon kind of girl though, so I decided on the maple brown sugar.

Hot Fudge in Cupcake Form

I decided last week that I wanted some chocolate cupcakes with cream filling. You know, Hostess Cupcakes. Well, who can find those anymore? Actually I couldn't even find the off-brand. Umm...what's up with that? Eventually, I found Tasty Cakes, and they have that name for a reason. Yay score one for me! However, while I was at the grocery store, I noticed they had cake mix on sale for 99 cents. Who could pass that up? Certainly not me. So, I bought it, and then I bought a few more ingredients. It didn't take long for the idea to hit me. I decided to make Hot Fudge Cupcakes right there in the grocery store!
