Little King’s Confections at the St. Mary’s bazaar

I am proud to share that my best friend finally has a blog for her baking business, Little King’s Confections. Check it out!! I’m also proud of her because she volunteered her time and talent to make a ton of chocolate for her church’s Christmas bazaar. She raised more than $500 for them and did a great job 🙂 she practically sold out of everything and definitely drummed up business for herself in the future.

Next week she’s helping me at my fair, and the following week we are doing one together!! Yay.

Hope your weekends are wonderful!








Anniversary cake and truffles

Two posts in one day — holy cow! I couldn’t help myself though. Dana came over last night to give us an anniversary gift. She made our wedding cake a year ago and for our anniversary made us a mini version of the same cake. Best. Friend. Ever.

It is beautiful! I am always so impressed.

She also dropped off my September truffles: Apple Pie A La Mode and Hazelnut Orange.

They are to-die-for delicious.

So yummy?


Oh yeah, the blog hit 80,000 plus views today!! So excited 🙂


Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

If you are a fan of A Smith of All Trades on Facebook, then you saw my funny post yesterday of my GIANT zucchini that is almost half the size of Remmy.

Well, that zucchini was way too big to cook up for dinner, so instead I made four batches of chocolate chip zucchini bread.

I found a really good zucchini bread recipe at, and two hours later had wayyyyy more bread than I knew what to do with. A loaf to the neighbors, a loaf to my mom and John, some muffins to my Dad and Jill… and STILL so much left.

I saved the big loaf for me and the hubs.


Mmmmm, mmmm, mmmmm. Zucchini bread is delicious — especially with mini chocolate chips 🙂

Now, time to craft!

And in case you were wondering, we still have a third of the zucchini left over for dinner!
