Sunday Sweets: Bark Candies


Hey hey, it’s Sunday! Know what that means? Time to talk about the candy I’ve been making lately! Two weeks ago it was all about BARKS. Bark week was not just about making dreadful puns (“barks you should bite,” yeow!), oh no. It was also about making quick and easy candies that are perfect for…

Blue Crystal Meth Rock Candy for Breaking Bad


You guys! Breaking Bad is finally coming back to TV this Sunday night, to which I say: bring it.

Junior Mint Cookies–And A New Arrival


Hello! Hi! Howdy! I’ve been away a solid month and I have missed you all. Here’s a little project I was working on in my absence: Our little sugarbaby is 4 weeks old today! He’s sweet-natured, loves to eat (just like his parents!), and is, in our entirely biased opinions, completely adorable. He’s also more…

Cherry-Chocolate Heart Truffles


I think I need to start getting kickbacks from the luster dust industry. Or is it bad form to say that out loud? Let me start again. I think I need to start getting ickbacks-kay from the uster-lay ust-day industry-hay. (Call me!) Seriously, though, I have been putting this stuff on EVERYTHING lately, and I…
