    What better way to celebrate Halloween than with a cake that resembles candy corn!

    Smiley Print + a Coupon!

    There are three things in this world that I absolutely love: food, photography, and instagram. When I was in school, my favorite class was Intro to Photography. This was because we were really learning the basics and the foundation of photography. We didn't even pick up a digital camera! We would shoot using film and develop everything on our own in the dark room. There is just something about being able to hold your photographs in real… Read More »

    Exciting News! Chicory Grocery Service Helps Make Cooking at Home Easier

    I love cooking and I love baking but my life has been busier than ever and sometimes after work it seems easier to just order in than cook.
