St. Patrick’s Day is only a couple weeks away, and I don’t know about you but I think it’s such a fun holiday to celebrate!  This year, I’ve looked up different festive recipes and so many of them make the use of Lucky Charms.  They’re so creative and yummy!  Here are a few Lucky Charms snacks and treats that make celebrating St. Patty’s Day ten times better.

  • Lucky Charms Dirt Cake.  Chelsea Crockett - Lucky Charms CupcakeIf you’ve had dirt cake, then you know just how good it is.  All you need to make is vanilla pudding and add food coloring to make it green.  Then, in a large glass bowl, fill in a layer of pudding, whip cream, then lucky charms… and repeat! It looks and tastes great!
  • Lucky Charms Cupcakes.  This recipe is extremely simple!  Just make a fresh batch of cupcakes, ice them, and finish them off with some Lucky Charms like the picture on the right!  You can make different designs out of all the different marshmallows!
  • Green Lucky Charms Pancakes.  When I was little, my mom would always make me a full green breakfast for St. Patrick’s Day.  If you want green pancakes, put food coloring in the batter.  Add some whip cream to the top followed by a sprinkle of Lucky Charms!  They’re perfect for the occasion! 🙂

Which one are you going to try out for yourself?  Feel free to let me know in the comments below! 🙂

Tis’ the season of Halloween treats and festivities! There’s nothing I love more than finding fun recipes to put my baking skills to use. Cake pops, in particular, are some of my favorite treats to make. Take a minute to Google image all of the different Halloween pop ideas. You can make ghosts, mummies, jack-o-lanterns, black cats, monsters, etc. The ideas are endless. Not only are they cute but they taste even better!Chelsea Crockett - Spider Cake Pops

If you’re creative in the kitchen, you may be able to come up with an idea or two on how to decorate your cake pops. My favorite ones, like the pops on the right, call for chocolate cake batter, black sprinkles, black icing, black licorice, and the edible hard sugar that acts as the eyes (you can even make them out of icing too!). How simple is that? Another recipe calls for white icing and Oreo cake batter decorated with googly eyes. It was the cutest tray of little white ghosts that tasted delicious as well!

So what are you waiting for? Grab some friends and ingredients and let the baking, icing, and eating begin!

XOXO, Chels

Pancakes are one of my favorite meals to have for breakfast… and what’s better than being a little creative and making them cake batter red velvet pancakes? Since I spend a lot of time on Pinterest, I thought I’d share this delicious recipe I found. Not only is the recipe for the pancakes, but for a cream cheese drizzle as well! Yum!

Chelsea Crockett - PancakesFirst, you need your ingredients: 2 cups of red velvet cake mix, 1 ¼ cup of milk/water, 1 egg, ½ cup of flour, 4 ounces of cream cheese, ½ cup of powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and 2 tablespoons of milk.

Second, heat your pan or skillet at medium heat. Take a large bowl and whisk the egg and milk together. Then, add in the red velvet cake mix, milk, egg, and flour. Mix together until the batter is completely fluffy. After that, you’re ready to go! Whether you want mini pancakes or big ones, grease the pan with butter or oil before pouring on the batter. Then pour the batter on the pan and wait till a bubble appears to flip. Each side should cook for about a minute. Once the pancakes are done, you’re ready to make the cream cheese drizzle!

This part is simple. Take a smaller bowl and mix together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. Once all ingredients are fully mixed together, pour the drizzle on top of your pancakes. How delicious does that sound :)?

Enjoy! – Chelsea

Hey insiders,
               Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!  It’s always fun to bake something creative for that special someone in your life.  It’s also fun to bake treats for others that you love like your grandparents, your friends, or even a teacher.  Below I’ve included three different goodies that would make anyone’s mouth water.
               I always love to bake heart shaped cut out cookies.  A relative’s sugar cookie recipe is the always the best way to go.  My family and I like to use different shaped sizes of hearts and decorate them with pink, red, white, and purple icing.  We top them off with sugar sprinkles.
              Another yummy idea is to bake a heart shaped cake!  You can purchase a heart shaped pan or two and bake a cake in them.  Chelsea Crockett - Rice CrispiesHave fun icing for decorating your cake.  This will show your “special someone” that you took the time to make something fun and creative.  And don’t forget delicious!  
               If baking is not your thing, you can always make some rice crispy treats on the stove top.  You can use a cookie cutter to cut heart shapes out of the treats. You can also use popsicle or lollipop sticks to slide into each snack.  Feel free to decorate the rice crispy treats with icing if you really LOVE sugar!  I hope these ideas will help you spread love this Valentine’s Day!

                                                                         Hugs and kisses,
                                                                                     Chelsea

             Hey everybody!  With Father’s Day right around the corner, you’ll need to start thinking about gift ideas!  You can always go the easy route, but I’m going to give you a few ideas to make his gift meaningful and creative this year!Chelsea Crockett - Tie Cake

             One way to impress your dad is baking him sweets or a cake.  All over the internet, you can find cute ideas for cakes such as in the shape of a tie or a sports themed cake.  Cake pops and cupcakes are also a fun way to show off your baking skills.

           Chelsea Crockett - Grilling Accessories If your dad’s in to grilling, you can purchase grilling accessories such as grill spatulas or a thermometer.  If you’re interested in purchasing these, click here!  If he’s in to cooking, try buying him cook books with yummy recipes that he can make for the whole family!

            Instead of being the chef, maybe your father is a sports fanatic!  Buying him his favorite team’s jersey is a good, and not too expensive, way to make him smile.  If you have a higher budget, purchase a ticket or two to a baseball, football, or hockey game (whatever your old man prefersWink).

            Besides buying him a present, making him a homemade card is heartfelt and just as meaningful.  Be sure to write inside the card and tell your dad just how much he means to you.  He would probably appreciate that gift more than anything else!  So get creative and show your love for your dad this holiday!

                                                            XOXO-Chelsea
