Eye Candy

Last weekend I made mini lemon cupcakes and mini lemon doughnuts with lemon buttercream. We were having a birthday dinner for my Dad and he's a big fan of lemon so I decided on bringing most of them for dessert. They definitely didn't last long but when they're mini it's totally fine to eat at least 2-3, right?

I love my mini doughnut pan... the doughnuts are so freaking cute! Mini Doughnut

I have some exciting baking plans for next week... a dorky baking recipe I've been itching to try. In the meantime I'll share with you some recipes I've been drooling over on Pinterest lately. Again, I keep coming across yummy-sounding dips. I need to host another board game night so I have an excuse to make some dips.

Lemon Meringue Pie Dip

Chocolate Cherry Fruit Dip

I've heard of chocolate chip pies and I really need to make one!

DAVIDs TEA sent me an email recently with this tea featured in it... it is definitely going to be apart of my next order! And the image has me itching to make some chocolate mint cupcakes.

Today has been absolutely wonderful! We're having incredibly warm weather for the middle of January! All our windows are open and it feels so fresh in the apartment. I've spent my day sewing, playing with the kitties, and tidying up here and there. Tonight is date night - homemade pizza with Adam and then we're off to see Django Unchained.

I hope you're having a great weekend!
