Beth Bakes: Chocolate Chip Bananut Muffins

Friday, May 22, 2015

Hey friends! Happy Friday and long holiday weekend! I've been lucky to have some time on my hands and so I've been back to a comfort zone of mine, the kitchen! Although, I have recently accepted a new job (yay!) and so I'll be back to 9 to 5 lifestyle.

Anyway, ever since I was allowed to use the oven without supervision I have been baking. I went to private school and never got the home economics class my public school friends had. I'm glad I didn't have that class because I'm not sure I would like baking as much if I was "forced" to participate in it.

Baking is something I got from my grandmothers. I think it skipped a generation because my mom can only bake boxed mixes. Nothing wrong with that though! I love me some confetti cupcakes!

My Nana and Grandmother were always busy making Christmas cookies. My Grandmother used to make the most thin cut out cookies. She even had a recipe for chocolate cut out cookies which I've never seen anyone else offer chocolate! My Nana has a snickerdoodle cookie recipe that is on point. You can eat them alone but sprinkle them over ice cream and you say, "I can die now!"

Lilly Pulitzer for Target Haul

Tuesday, May 5, 2015

Hello and happy Tuesday! I am so excited to share the loot I got from the madness known as the Lilly Pulitzer for Target collection released on April 19. I know it's long overdue but I've had lots of things going on. I always mention to follow me on social media because then you never miss a beat. I've been on snapchat (eakern) a lot lately making fun little videos. If you're not watching you're missing out!
Watch the YouTube video I put together to show the five items I got from the collection!
