Cinnamon Roll Muffins

Yeah... these will change your life! Fair warning most of the recipes I share on the blog are found via Pinterest because while I can cook I am not creative enough to come up with such tasty treats. This one came from Some The Wiser & y'all... it's amazing!

First off, let's start with these cute muffin liners. I adore the look of these so I decided to give them a go & they are super easy! 

Parchment Paper Muffin Liner

Cut parchment paper into 6"x6" squares. Find a can or glass that fits into your cupcake pan & simple cover the can with the parchment paper to make a cup. Simple as that! Spritz with a little non-stick cooking spray to make sure cupcakes/muffins don't stick!

Cinnamon Roll Muffins
Recipe by Some The Wiser

Ingredients

2 cups all purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup sugar
3 tablespoons melted butter, cooled slightly
1 egg
1 cup milk (plus more as needed)

Topping and Filling

1 cup brown sugar, loosely packed
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1½ cups coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts (I skipped this)
3 tablespoons melted butter

Frosting

2 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk
Dash of vanilla

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Generously grease a standard 12 cup muffin tin.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients(flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar). In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (melted butter, egg, milk) until well combined. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the egg mixture, stirring only until just combined.
  3. Combine all the topping/filling ingredients. Gently fold half of the mixture into the muffin batter.
  4. Spoon the muffin batter, about ¼ cup, into each muffin tin. Top with remaining brown sugar mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes, or until muffins spring back when pressed lightly. Remove from oven. Cool slightly, then transfer carefully to a wire rack.
  5. Whisk together all of the frosting ingredients. Drizzle over the top of the muffins and enjoy every single delicious bite . . . maybe even lick your fingers when you're done.

Galentine's Day Brunch

If you watch Parks & Rec you know Galentine’s Day is a very special day that I immediately fell in love with! In case you haven’t seen the show, Galentine’s Day is a day to celebrate the amazing women in your life & the friendships that mean so much to you! When I opened the store I knew that I wanted to celebrate women & Galentine’s Day with a floral workshops, lip stick bars, & cupcakes! For the blog, I wanted to share a simple, but fun Galentine’s Day brunch! I teamed up with Sarah Regan a nutritionist in Augusta, GA & my bestie to come up with a menu that everyone would love!

For the table I kept it fun with a colorful floral arrangement (made by me!! Want to learn how to arrange gorgeous blooms check out of workshop with Southern Thyme!), white plates, a watercolor table runner (by the fabulous Tori of TW Designs ), & my new favorite DIY, wine dipped napkins!

WINE DIPPED NAPKINS
The name pretty much describes it all! 

SUPPLIES
White linen napkin
Cheap Red Wine (don’t waste the good stuff!)
Large Pot
2 Tablespoons of Salt
Water

STEPS
Pour the wine & salt into the pot. Dip half of the napkins in the wine for a few seconds. Leave bottom of the napkins in the wine for about 10 mins to create an ombre look. Once you get the looks you’re going for dip the napkins in cold water until the wine doesn’t bleed (you may have to do this process one or two times) & let dry! 

I hope this sweet brunch inspires you to celebrate the ladies in your life! Although it’s fun to throw a gorgeous brunch the most important thing is spending time together & encouraging each other. So if brunch is out of the question celebrate the day with a simple text or phone call!

Super Bowl Party!

It's that time! Whether your team made it to the big game or not a Super Bowl party is always a good idea! 

Cody & I have hosted our fair share of Super Bowl parties, but last year was by far my favorite. We had some of our college friends over to watch the game & host a Chili Cook-Off! Not only did this cut down on the cost of food, but it gave something for non-football watchers to do besides wait for the commercials! The winner got a cute apron & bragging rights! Since I loved last year's party so much I thought I would share my table decor & my favorite dip!

Super Bowl Party-7.jpg

My favorite tip for any party is protecting your table if you're using your dining room table. For this party I used simple kraft paper & simply drew some football plays! Simple, affordable, & saves your table from any nasty spills!

I found these cute football players at Hobby Lobby as well as the moss planter perfect for flatware & moss peel & stick square to add the look of turf to the table. A few years ago Target had these cute tassels in about every color imaginable. Being the crazy person I am, I bought a ton of colors, but have used them more times that I can count! 

Now onto the main event... the food! I like to keep things simple when hosting. Some chicken tenders, fruit, cheese, & of course dips! Our favorite dip is by far Buffalo Chicken Dip. It's nothing fancy, but I've become known for it & have even given batches of it for birthdays & Christmas presents!

Ingredients (I usually double for parties!)

1lb Chicken Breasts
8oz. Cream Cheese
1/2 Bottle of Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Sauce (Depends on how hot you like it!)
1/2 Cup of Blue Cheese Dressing (Can swap for Ranch Dressing)
1/2 Cup of Blue Cheese Crumbles
1/2 Cup of Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Boil chicken breasts until fully cooked. Drain & shred with two forks. Add the remaining ingredients until mixed all together. You can either put the mix into the crockpot or pop in the oven at 350 degrees from 15 mins or until hot. Serve with tortilla chips & be prepared to be hooked!

Snow Days in Charleston

You read right! We not only had snow in Charleston we had 7 inches of snow! Needless to say the lowcountry lost their mind, but we had so much fun taking several days off to play in the snow! We spent the day watching movies, eating junk food, & having a pretty epic snowball fight. (Our neighbors were cheering us on/recording us from their porches) The best part was watching our pup, Molly, play in the snow like a puppy! Hope everyone was as lazy as we were!

We also took full advantage of the snow & made one of the most amazing treat that we Southerners don't get to eat too often, Snow Cream! 

SNOW CREAM!

Ingredients
5-6 Cups of Snow
1/2 Cup of Sugar
1 Cup of Milk
1 Tsp of Vanilla 

Mix is all together & enjoy!!

Pop, Fizz, CLINK!

I don't know about you, but this girl loves a good cocktail! I use to joke that Cody was a snooty drinker. He would be the only 21 year old ordering a manhattan on a Saturday night from a college bar. Slowly he introduced me to the world of nice cocktails & I realized my cranberry & vodka just wasn't going to cut it. The only problem with a good cocktail is the price tag so we picked our favorite cocktail to make at home so you can feel boujee while you binge watch netflix (No judgement!).

Italian 75

You may have heard of a French 75, but I swoon for a good glass of prosecco. Prosecco is very similar to champagne, but comes from Italy, therefore, this cocktail is called an Italian 75. This drink is SO simple & by far my favorite!

ML-2.jpg

Ingredients
1 oz. Gin
1/2 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
2 Dashes of Simple Syrup
Proscecco

Pour gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, & ice into a cocktail shaker. Shake. Strain into champagne flute or coupe, top with proscecco, & garnish with a lemon twist!


Cody's Fave
Manhattan (obviously)

A Manhattan as Cody says is timeless & simple, but just a fair warning if you don't enjoy a stiff drink I would stick with the Italian 75.

ML-1.jpg

Ingredients
2 oz. Rye Whiskey
1 oz. Italian Vermouth
2 Dashes of Angostura Bitters

Pour all the ingredients into a mixing glass with ice. Stir. Strain into cocktail glass & garnish with a maraschino cherry!
