DIY Strawberry Costume

DIY Strawberry Costume

Heads up. Let’s keep it real, if you want to make this exact DIY Strawberry Costume, it’s sort of time-consuming especially if you’re sewing this by hand. But I have a couple of shortcuts for you if you’re on a time crunch. I love this costume because it’s not hindering to your productivity (you can […] Read more…

DIY Watermelon Costume

Watermelon DIY Costume

The DIY Watermelon Costume has the most elements out of all the costumes in TTF’s 1st Annual DIY Food Series, with the rind, seeds and hat. But overall, I was able to finish this in just a few hours and sewed everything by hand. So not impossible. This one probably was the one I got […] Read more…

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…

TTF’s First Annual DIY Food Series

DIY Food Series

Two truths, (1) here at TTF HQ we LOVE food-themed outfits and (2) we call them “outfits” instead of “costumes” because we would wear these outfits 24/7 if we could get away with it. Introducing TTF’s First Annual DIY Food Series: This year’s theme will be a DELISH fruit salad. So this year’s series will […] Read more…

Perfect Blueberry Muffins

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. But I like to mix in a few individualized items to make everybody feel special. I made a double batch of […] Read more…

Summer Citrus Centerpiece

Adding slices of fresh lemons, grapefruit, oranges, and limes to flower arrangements is a cheap and easy way to take your centerpieces to the next level. Hence, my Summer Citrus Centerpiece. Particularly if it’s a special occasion but you still want the flowers to have a “just thrown together from my garden” look. For my Summer […] Read more…

Tri-ed & True — Kumquat Lemonade

My deliciously easy kumquat lemonade recipe.

My love/obsession with lemonade has been well-documented (see Exhibit A & Exhibit B), so I’m always trying to develop new recipes based around that. My parents have a kumquat tree in their backyard, and kumquat trees are always bursting with fruit every season (on average about 300 kumquats for an medium tree). So this recipe […] Read more…

Pas-Tri-es — Cherry Tri Cupcakes

Cherry Cupcake Featured

These Cherry Tri Cupcakes are really delicious. The best part about making cupcakes (and cooking in general) is that once you get a general recipe down, with a few easy adjustments you can have 10 more recipes in your repertoire. This is the same recipe as my champagne cupcakes but I switched out the champagne […] Read more…

Pas-Tri-es — Tri-ple Berry Champagne Cupcakes

Champagne Cupcakes ready to be packed

These champagne cupcakes look and taste fancy, but they’re super easy to make (trust me). I came up with this recipe when I needed to use up some leftover champagne from the night before. The champagne makes the cupcakes insanely moist and I use egg whites in the batter to make them extra light. And […] Read more…

Pas-Tri-es — Lattice Crusted Apple Pie

I’ve made this pie at least 3 times a year every fall. I’ve spent a long time coming up with an apple pie recipe that was perfect. I have a specific criteria when it comes to apple pies (1) it must be chock-full of apples, (2) there can’t be too much liquid, (3) the crust […] Read more…
