How To Throw A Memorable Birthday Party

Tie Dye Cupcakes are a fun way to celebrate a birthday! Made easily using boxed cake mix, they wow without a lot of effort!

Our kids never had birthday parties.

Let me rephrase that, for they’ve had more than their fair share, to be honest. But they were between our different sides of the family, combined with cousins or not, and even packaged up with holiday picnics. My kids don’t suffer a lack of fanfare; but we haven’t thrown …

Peeps Cereal Squares

Peeps Cereal Squares are like the Rice Krispie Treats you've grown to love...only better, with the addition of Fruity Pebbles, Peeps (instead of marshmallows), and a vanilla coating on the outside to make a heck of a treat!

So much food at Walt Disney World. So much inspiration surrounding me.

I didn’t have the time to eat my way through the parks as much as I had hoped–in fact, I barely touched on what Epcot had to offer and would really like to go back and spend a solid day or two there …

Cherry Blueberry Crumble

Cherry Blueberry Crumble - Poet in the Pantry

Summer is full of so many fabulous fruits, but one of my favorites would have to be cherries. Those little orbs–aside from proving to the Witches of Eastwick that they could meddle in other people’s lives–are so packable, so finger-food-friendly, and just so darn delicious. Keep napkins on hand–the juice, sadly stains.

After pitting …

Disclosure: I received coupons from Driscoll’s Berries in order to develop a recipe for their Strawberry Shortcake contest. All photos and opinions remain my own.

I am a whoopie pie freak. What’s my favorite pie? Whoopie. Cupcakes for a classroom birthday party? Nope, whoopie pies. Going to a picnic? I already know what I’m making. …
