Oh my goodness, peeps. I swear, each time I write up a post I promise myself (and you guys!) that I am going to write more often. But then I walk away from the computer and life takes over. Over the past few weeks we had our water heater explode, leaving water all over our basement. Then we had to replace our dishwasher. And just this past week the stove went out. Awesome. When it rains, it pours… right? So now I promise to try to write as much as I would like. Deal??
In the midst of all the craziness recently, I have managed to crank out 1 Christmas project. That’s right… ONE! I think I had about 15 planned. Stupid life. Always in the way of my crafting fun. I even wanted to do a winter home tour but you’ll be lucky if you see a picture of our tree. But seriously… I kinda love this project. Partially because it cost me $0 and partially because it looks way better than I could have hoped. So I guess if I was only going to get one thing done, I’m glad it was these adorable and incredibly easy Rustic Paint Stick Stars.
Just popping in real quick to let you all know that I’m sharing my last creative team post over on I Heart Naptime! Go check out my fantastic recipe for homemade Eggnog Marshmallows!

Are you guys ready for a whole lotta recipe posts?? I’ve been cooking and baking up a storm and I have a bunch of recipes to share with all of you!
I don’t know about you, but I think these cold and snowy winter days scream for comfort food. And one of my all time favorite comfort foods is mac and cheese. When I was a kid, it was from that wonderful blue Kraft box. Now that I’m all grown up (…mostly. I may or may not still giggle at certain words and noises…) I love to make homemade mac and cheese. But I still love to get a little help from Kraft to really make this creamy mac & cheese pop!
Hi!!!!!! I’ve missed you guys! I feel like I have been gone forever! I took the week of Thanksgiving off of blogging to spend some time with family and friends. Did you all have a good Thanksgiving? We had a wonderful time and heaps of fantastic food!
Enough about Thanksgiving. On to the next holiday! It’s Christmas time, peeps! Woot! It’s really feeling Christmas-y here in Colorado what with all the snow we are getting today! I’ve been eagerly waiting to share this recipe with all of you. Remember last year when I shared not one but 2 (here and here) secret family recipes for Christmas candies?? Well, this year the old traditionals were made, but I wanted to add something new to the mix. Let me preface these caramel pecan turtles with this… if you don’t like pecans, or caramel, or chocolate… leave now. Run. Flee. Personally, I believe that the combination of those 3 items is worthy of a Chandler Bing dance…. in a good way.
Anywho. On to the recipe!
I’m going to be honest. This recipe has been a long time coming. I’ve been wanting to make homemade cream cheese danish for months now. But I keep putting it off. I don’t know why. These were so simple to make! I think I was just nervous that they wouldn’t turn out as good as the ones I buy. But in all seriousness, I’m a pastry fiend. That’s right. A fiend. I would hoard pastries if it wasn’t “socially unacceptable”. I have often said to the hubby that if I had to choose a different profession, I would be a pastry chef. My latest obsession has been with these easy cream cheese danish.
