Bridesmaids Boxes

Will You Be My Bridesmaid Boxes by OinKSoooo, in case you don’t follow me on Instagram, and since I’ve been SERIOUSLY neglecting this little blog of mine, I will share a little news…we’re engaged!!  I’m incredibly excited!  We are getting married March 28, 2015 and I’m very much looking forward to it!  Because we are having a somewhat small wedding (100 invites), our bridal party is small as well.  It includes my sister, Matt’s sister, and two of my closest girlfriends.

Now, I know this is a food blog, and yes, I will get back to food momentarily, but I just wanted to share a little DIY project that I did.  Continue reading

Baby Boy Stanley (Gender Reveal!)

Gender Reveal Cake from Order in the Kitchen

Welcome Baby Boy Stanley to the world!!!

Hello little one!  We are so happy that you are here! :)  My colleague, Laura, has just had her baby and thanks to my ridiculously poor blogging efforts, I failed to post the gender reveal party cake that I made for her many months ago when we first found out the gender of her little baby.  Here are the pictures from making the cake and the gender reveal party we had for her at work.  Now that you know it’s a boy, it may not be quite as secretive and exciting, but I had the best time making this cake!

My version of the “Best Birthday Cake”

OinK's version of the "Best Birthday Cake"

SOOOO my co-worker and friend, Ashley was having a birthday and I figured, why get her a store-bought cake when I could make one especially for her?  Her favorite cake is yellow with chocolate frosting, and fortunately, I stumbled across this.  Smitten Kitchen’s “Best Birthday Cake”.  I used her exact recipe, so I won’t post it here, but it turned out amazing…especially the frosting, which wasn’t too sweet but had an incredible flavor!   Continue reading

Happy 3rd Birthday Puppy!

 

Puppy Birthday

 

Sooooo, exciting news!  Little Muggsy turned 3 years old!  3 whole years old! I’ve heard that this is when dogs start calming down, but I don’t really see that happening with this one any time soon.  I decided to make some simple sugar cookies (not for her…she got to eat treats and some steak plus a new toy!).  I wanted to make them look like her toys and so I picked her two faves!  She LOVES her FETCH ball (so much so that she has already chewed off the blue FETCH letters off!) and her KONG toy.  Read on for more!
