Pear Cupcakes with Honey Buttercream | SugarHero.com

Buckle up, cupcakes, there is major cuteness ahoy. What, like you’ve never made a recipe just so you could top it with an adorable miniature candy fruit? Actually, these pear cupcakes served a dual purpose: I got to indulge my love of whimsy and painfully literal cupcake decorating, and also got to address what is…

Grapefruit Tarts

I am such a sucker for a good deal. While shopping recently, I noticed that the store was selling 6 grapefruit for $1.

It’s been an absolute blast, and I may never look at a root beer float…

Thanks to Disney and Blueprint Social for sponsoring this post. I was one of those weird kids who didn’t watch “normal” tv. When I was younger, we had a PBS-only rule in my house, so I could tell you all about what was happening on 3,2,1…Contact or Square One, but couldn’t begin to tell you…
