{Recipe} Flourless Chocolate Soufflé Cake

Flourless Chocolate Soufflé Cake

Who's getting married this holiday season? The Target Wedding registry is full of products to help you create the perfect foodie night in. Combined with their seasonal products, you'll have the perfect ingredients for a festive night at home. I'm sharing one of my favorite desserts, using my absolutely favorite registry item: the KitchenAid Ultra Power 4.5 Qt Stand Mixer. This flourless chocolate soufflé cake is a totally decadent. I'm sure there's a proper way to line your springform pan with parchment, but I always use bag clips. It totally works, as long as you remember to remove the clips before you put everything in the oven! Seriously...melted plastic clips? Not gonna work in this recipe. Your Kitchenaid mixer is going to be a lifesaver when you're making this recipe. Beating egg whites by hand? Not impossible, but...not something I want to do.

CraftFail: The Book

Craft Fail

If you ain't failing, you ain't crafting. You learn that the moment you pick up your first glue gun. The life of a DIYer is filled with fingers stuck together, glitter in places you didn't know existed and heads hitting desks as you realize that what you just made in no way, shape or form resembles what you first saw on Pinterest. Heather Mann created the site CraftFail to serve as a repository of all of those moments you just totally nailed it. When you screw up as often as I do, you need a place to giggle along with people who share the same passions. CraftFail only accepts self-submitted failures, so no turning in your mom's best friend's cousin who totally ruined that baby hat she attempted to knit after she found the pattern online. Now CraftFail is a book! That's right...Pinterest worthy inspiration lined up side by side with the goopy, droopy results. There's even an entire section devoted to the crafts inspired by Martha Stuart. You know, the woman who launched a few … [Continue]

A Look Inside Into The Woods

unnamed

So, let me give you a little list of things I love: I love Disney. I love fairy tales. I love musicals. I love Stephen Sondheim. I love Meryl Streep. I love Tracey Ullman. I love Christine Baranski. I more than love Johnny Depp. In a box, in a closet, I have the original cast recording cassette....yes...cassette of Into The Woods. I actually sent away to get the larger liner book with notes that came in the album because I'm that big a geek. That's why the new Into The Woods featurette might … [Continue]

All The Fried Foods… {North Carolina State Fair}

All The Fried Foods

I remember going to the fair as a little kid. It was lots of this. Cotton Candy. Candy Apples. Sno Cones. You know...the classics. The Grist Mill at  the North Carolina State Fair is another classic. A quick stop not only lets you sample some hushpuppies as you enter, you can also buy a cup of the best hushpuppies at the fair and watch the mill in action. And this year we finally got there before they closed down for the day. Ahhhh...The nearby Heritage Circle has treats like apple cider, … [Continue]

{Tutorial} Chalkboard Masks

It's easy to make DIY chalkboard masks with inexpensive supplies and your Silhouette!

It's easy and fun to make these inexpensive chalkboard masks-they'd make a great activity for a Halloween party! Or...just throw one on to pretend you're at a fancy masquerade ball. Your call. I won't judge. All you need to make chalkboard masks is black cardstock, chalk and elastic cord. There's a minor chance-if you're like me-that you'll have all of these supplies at home. Of course it just so happens that I had used up the last of my elastic cord when my nieces visited and were on a … [Continue]

{Recipe} Halloween Boo Bark

It's so easy to make this Halloween Boo Bark! It's the perfect treat for your little ghouls!

Oh, hi, Halloween! Look at you sneaking up on me super quick. I haven't even pulled the orange boxes out of the attic yet. Oops! Luckily it only takes a few minutes to make this super fun and seasonally appropriate Halloween Boo Bark. You can totally melt chocolate in the microwave, but I'm prone to burning it that way. I still love the double boiler method best. My double boiler? One of my everyday bowls sitting in one of my small sauce pans. Just melt the chocolate of your choice and pour it … [Continue]

The Last Hairdryer You’ll Ever Need: The Conair Q3

Conair Q3 Buttons

I have exactly one head and yet I'm the proud owner of three-yes, three-hair dryers. Fun fact: all of my hair dryers are from Conair. I was totally happy with the hair dryer I was using, but when Beautystat asked me if I wanted to try the Infiniti Pro by Conair® 3Q™, I jumped at the chance. Why? Well...my hair...takes...forever to dry. For-ev-er. I could bore you with the stories about mornings where the 'rent in charge told me to go back and dry my hair just a little longer. But...I won't. … [Continue]

Things To Do While You Dye Your Hair

Madison Reed

I was born with a medium brown hair color. For a while there I thought I would die with a medium brown hair color. While all my friends started going gray I was still that same medium brown. And then...disaster struck. Grays popped up. One here, two there. Nothing crazy. But because my hair was that medium brown they were shiny and silver and stuck out like a sore thumb. Box dye to the rescue. The more I dyed, the darker I went. I've from time to time used the darkest black I could find. Yet … [Continue]

Easy Sleeping Beauty Party Plan-Giving Movie Night A Princess Makeover

Sleeping Beauty Movie Night #DisneyBeauties #shop

I don't think it comes as any great shock that I have a fondness for all things Disney. That's extra true when it comes to Disney Princesses. What can I say? This girl loves a good fairy tale. Sleeping Beauty also hold a special place in my heart for having my favorite Disney Villain. I love Maleficent so much I even made a pair of horns to wear for Halloween. Nothing against Aurora, but Maleficent is just too fabulous for words. I was the proud owner  of every Disney movie ever released on … [Continue]
