Kelly Nelson’s Texas Sheet Cake

Looking at most of these photos you would never know I experienced a major baking fail when making Rad Mom, Kelly Nelson’s Texas Sheet Cake. Sh*t happens when you bake and sometimes it is not always pretty. I was just reading an article about a mom who dropped her daughter’s perfect birthday cake right …

Grown Ups Only: Colorful Tequila Lollipops

Cosmopolitan featured these Tequila Lollipops in a video that went viral and when I saw it I set out to make the pops. Turns out, Cosmopolitan’s recipe left out some crucial information – like the temperature the syrup needs to be before it reaches the hard crack phase required for candy making. Needless to say, our …

French Apple Tart

With Bastille Day on Friday we have all things French on the brain! If your little ones are a little older, Zelda and I fully approve of throwing a French themed tea party with this delicious French Apple Tart. Working with puff pastry is always a little intimidating because it is so delicate. I was worried that this recipe might …

Spiro’s Famous Tzatziki Recipe

Okay, you guys -- this is BIG. Spiro makes the best tzatziki I've ever tasted in my life and he finally agreed to let me feature it on the site. He had two conditions. The first was that I had to showcase each step in detail and the second was that he got to make it and write the recipe …

Rachel Leykind’s Juicy Baklava

Full disclosure: My baby daddy is Greek and I’ve never made baklava before. This was my first attempt and I made two aesthetically fatal errors – I didn’t grind the nuts into a powder and I froze the phyllo dough prior to making the recipe. BIG MISTAKE. I received this dessert recipe from Rad Mom, Rachel …

Skinny Smoothies That Can Be Made with Alcohol

Sometimes mom needs a little something extra in her skinny smoothie (and I don't mean Lisa Rinna style!). These couldn't be more reminiscent of summer, and if your littles want to participate, just whip up a batch without the tequila. They taste amazing with or without alcohol. Use an adorable watermelon lollipop as a garnish to add an extra pop of fun! …

Laura Kyttanen’s Watermelon Salad

All hail the watermelon salad! It officially feels like summer when the table cloth is gingham and the salads are comprised of mostly fruit. Rad Mom and sensorial brand consultant, Laura Kyttanen taught us that this salad can be super fancy (think 5-6 cubes of watermelon per plate surrounded by delicate drops of balsamic) or very casual (think …

D-A-D Maple Bacon Stuffed French Toast

There’s always something special about eating breakfast in bed – especially when it’s delivered by someone as cute as Zelda (I know I might be biased, but come on!). This year, we’re planning on spoiling Spiro with D-A-D Maple Bacon Stuffed French Toast. When we were doing our practice run, Zelda was all too happy to be the …

Superfood Smoothie Bowls for Any Time of Day

I’ve professed my love for our KitchenAid Blender before and over six months later, nothing has changed! I can pop a few ingredients in, walk away and when I return the recipe I’m making is nearly finished. For these superfood smoothie bowls, I just pour the smoothie mixture into two bowls, top with chia seeds and a few …

Red, White & Blue Apple Donuts

Are you at home with your babes today? Searching for a fun project? I’ve got you covered. Red, White and Blue Apple Donuts are a snack time staple and you probably already have the ingredients in your arsenal. This is a healthy spin on a sweet treat but still involves sprinkles – it’s okay to include a little …
