Surprise your guests when you cut into the birthday cake and colorful candy spills out just like a piñata. It's Piñata cake time!

I’m often asked why I do not want to open up a bakery in my area. Everyone compliments my baked goods and I have been asked lots of times to sell them, but it all just does not sound appealing to me. The thought that I have to bake the same cookies, cupcakes or brownies almost every day does not put a smile on my face.

I’d rather dirty up my kitchen, day after day, trying out new fun recipes and sharing them with you.

And speaking of fun, making this Piñata cake was the FUNNEST!

A buttery cake layered with a thick cream cheese frosting dotted with M&M’s baking bits and filled with more M&M’s for a double birthday surprise.

Let the celebration begin!…

Juicy fresh strawberries and a buttery topping make this strawberry crumble one of my favorite summer desserts!! Simple ingredients and only 5 minutes of prep time, I'll be making this over and over again, all summer long!

When I think of summer desserts, crumble, cobblers and crisps come first to mind.

Yes, I love strawberry shortcake or any kind of shortcakes, fruit pies and tarts, or fruity bars like these no bake blackberries bars or these almond blueberry bars but at the end of the day, if nothing sweet is in the fridge I quickly throw some ripe fruit in a dish, make a crumbly topping and bake until the fruit is oozing and bubbly and the topping is golden.

Crumble is the king (or queen) in my house all summer long! Too much fruit from the market – make a crumble! Craving something sweet – make a crumble! Last minute guests – make a crumble! Whatever the reason – make a crumble!

So much easier that making a fruit pie! …

Summer vacation may and may not be a mom’s favorite time of the year. It’s a decision that most likely changes every day. But what doesn’t changes is the joy of an upcoming family trip. The months of waiting, the weeks of planning, the days of packing. The research, the reservations, more research. Shopping for new comfortable walking shoes (don’t tell me I’m the only one!).

Ahh, the anticipation!

It’s fun, exciting but it’s so exhausting in the same time.

This summer I’m living out of my suitcase for almost 7 weeks! That’s a lot of planning, pre-plannig and pre-pre-pre planning. With little over 4 weeks spent outside US, I have to pack and be prepared for everything. Rain or shine. Beach and mountain. Day and night….

If I had to pick one fruit to describe summer spend at my grandparents when I was a wee one, cherry would be the perfect fit.

We did not have any cherry trees in our small orchard, but the house next to us had a big one and my cousins and I were pretty much the only kids who would devour all those juicy red cherries as soon as the school was out for the summer. Carefully, we would climb the tree and didn’t get down until we were so full we could hardly move. The next day we would do it all over again until there were no cherries left.There’s no surprise cherries are one of my favorite summer some fruit. Little gems of sugary sweetness. And paired with a silky cheesecake sandwiched between a chocolate crust and chocolate crumble topping – summer in a scrumptious bar! …

Love M&M'S? You're gonna love this M&M'S cake! Incredible simple to make, loaded with candy and topped with a smooth ganache and more candies! It's a M&M's paradise cake!

According to both my daughter and my husband sprinkles and M&M’S should make the world go round. Every time I ask what cake should I make they both reply: a colorful one!

Since I’ve already made a sprinkle cake for her birthday, it was time to take care of my husband’s request. A cake loaded, LOADED with M&M’S!!!

This incredible simple white cake is packed with M&M’S minis milk chocolate baking bits both in the batter and the frosting. And if that wasn’t enough, I finished it with more M&M’S candy. Of course you can skip the M&M’S on top but why would you? Don’t you like how colorful the cake looks like? It puts a smile on everyone’s face. You should have seen how my husband’s eyes lit up when he noticed the cake in the fridge!…
