Irish Stout Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting


It's March 1st and almost St Patrick's Day, being Irish I had to start off the month with a festive recipe. The recipe I used for this made these with Guinness, I used a local beer - Brooklyn Brewery Irish Stout. These cupcakes were amazing and will be making another appearance in my kitchen soon. I used gold sprinkles and shamrock icing decos I picked up at Michaels. Here's the link to make these wonderful cupcakes

Tortellini Chicken Soup

I added tomato to mine to make it more of a tomato base since I was serving this with grilled cheese. Definitely a wonderful soup and so filling on those cold winter days. Here's the link to the recipe

Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats


I love overnight oats for breakfast and try to make a variety of them. I love how easy they are, just make the night before and grab in the morning to take to work with me. I love the mix of cinnamon and cream cheese in this recipe. If you love overnight oats like I do then you have to make this recipe

Healthy Banana Nut Muffins

I made these into mini muffins and added granola with nuts because I didn't have nuts at home when I made them and it was too snowy out to head to the market. These were delicious and I love mini muffins. A wonderful morning snack, I like to make extra to freeze for those mornings I don't have time to put breakfast together. Here's the link to the recipe

Kerber's Farms



Something I love growing up on Long Island is all the local farms. I grew up going to tons of local farms growing up on the East End. When we moved further west I was lucky to found this amazing local farm. Everything I've gotten here has been amazing, they have a wonderful breakfast sandwich on cheddar biscuits, jam, chicken pot pie, mac & cheese, cookies, muffins and more. They even have dog treats that Princess loves. I love shopping local and love this little hidden gem in our area.
