Chocolate Glazed Coconut Cake

Do you think the person you are today would make the 8 year old you happy? I have been contemplating this question, wondering if the child I was would be truly happy with the adultI have become. Would the little girl who dreamed of being an opera singer be content with writing recipes and shooting food porn? Could 8 year old Kelly understand the complexities of life, love, and change?

Lucky Leaf Blueberry Coffee Cake

I went to Camp Blogaway over the weekend, and to celebrate I baked a coffee cake! This year Luck Leaf sponsored* my trip to Camp Blogaway and asked me to create a new recipe perfect for a weekend in the mountains. Along with some fun items to give to some lucky campers – like muffin liners, pie carriers, samples of their Premium Fruit Pie Fillings, and funky retro timers – I brought this cake to share. After dinner, while...

Yes, even my vegetables are Evil! I...

Pineapple Coconut Caramel Muffins

There is one word to describe my life right now – Busy! I have had a lot going on on various fronts –  some good some bad – and I feel like I have spent more time on the road than at home these last few weeks. Rather than bore you with the gory details (some of which I will share in future posts) I will sum it up by saying that my time in the kitchen experimenting with my Shenanigans as been decidedly limited. I have...
