DIY Grape Costume

DIY Grape Costume

This DIY Grape Costume is super cute. I put it on a white shirt so that the grapes would really pop from a distance. Trust me, people were stopping me left and right the whole day that I was wearing this telling me how much they liked it. Even the hat would make a cute […] Read more…

I don’t have a puppy of my own but we had a puppy party at work recently so I decided to make it extra special by coming up with a recipe for puppy cakes. Some research went into figuring out what ingredients were safe for dogs to eat and digest, hence why I selected items […] Read more…

I love these perfect blueberry muffins. Actually, I just like muffins in general. Whenever I have people over, I serve most things family-style out of convenience and to preserve that cozy breaking bread experience.

Tri-ed & True — Kumquat Lemonade

Tri-ed & True — Stuffing Muffins

It’s often too plain, too soggy, it’s an extra carb that’s secondary to rolls and mashed potatoes so why even bother?

Tri-ed & True — Christmas Tri Punch

This is one of my favorite holiday drinks. I’m not that big a fan of cranberry flavored drinks but I love that deep red color during the holidays, so I’ve had to come with drinks that use other red fruits. I make this Christmas Tri Punch during the summertime when fresh bing cherries are available, […] Read more…

Tips & Tri-cks — Hosting the Big Meal

Every year Thanksgiving is crazy. I have such a huge family so it’s not easy putting the whole meal together. In the past, I’ve always had this immense pressure on myself to consistently try to outdo myself. Because in the past, my mom, aunts and uncles have always worked so hard to put together these […] Read more…
