Happy Mother’s Day!

By: Amy Atlas, in Amy's Latest
Good Morning all. I’m not one for sharing a lot of pics of my family on here as I’m quite protective of my clan, but I had the urge to put a picture up of mom this am. I feel so very lucky to have my mom. There really isn’t any bond quite like it, right? She’s there for me unconditionally and I’m appreciating that more and more lately. Happy Mother’s Day to my mom,…

What’s Cooking for Mother’s Day?

Photo by Johnny Miller. Courtesy of Sweet Designs: Bake It Craft It Style It. How is it already Mother’s Day?  As a mom, I’m usually thinking of everyone else’s holidays and often forget when special occasions come up that celebrate me. I’m sure I’m not alone on this one, right? I’m curious what you all do for Mother’s Day? Do you get pampered by your kids and spouse?  Do you find yourself in the kitchen…

My Mother & Me Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
Mother’s day is right around the corner and we think this feminine dessert table from Francisca in Portugal is great inspiration. The design was inspired by a Pip Studio tea set. Sweet treats included beautifully decorated cake pops, cupcakes, mini cakes, meringue, and sugar cookies. We love the sweet styling tips that Francisca incorporated like the use of (1) pitchers to display sweets and florals, (2) various heights to display desserts, and (3) a gift…

Happy Mother’s Day {and Mom Arleen’s Sour Cream Coffee Cake!}

By: Amy Atlas, in Amy's Latest, Recipes
I talked a lot about heroes this week here and here.  Since we’re on this heroes theme this week, it seems appropriate to end the week with a post about Moms right before Mother’s Day.  I personally gained a deeper appreciation for my mom after I had my own kids.  It is so rewarding, but not always easy!  Working moms or moms who have their own businesses have that additional challenge  {see my post on…

Mother’s Day Over-the-Rim Tea and Cookie Set

By: Amy Atlas, in Kids
My family loves having tea and cookies after dinner. We drink out of petite tea cups and my sons like to pretend that they are serving the tea. It is usually the time when we reflect about our hectic day and we try (emphasize try – they are boys after all!) to have a moment of peace with them. So when I saw Meghan Mountford’s over-the-rim cookies, I flipped over the idea. Seriously, I can’t…
