I’m feeling in the baking mood. MSM and I have been working on converting our little abode into a real home (as opposed to the bachelor pad dorm room vibe it did have). All this nesting is pointing me right towards the kitchen. YAY. This is a great sign that I’m starting to feel at home. I love to bake.
I’m not embarrassed to admit that I adore Tori Spelling. I met her when I was a makeup artist and honestly, she’s one of the sweetest most genuine people I’ve ever met. Not to mention she is fun and HILARIOUS. After working with her I decided to read her book, sTori Telling , which cracked me up cover to cover. I haven’t watched her reality shows (I can’t stand reality TV), but I do follow her on instagram and today she posted this:
Um HELLO. YUM! And so Spring with all the pastels. Marshmallows and Pastels scream spring to me….maybe because of Peeps? Anyways, these look so yummy I want to share the recipe with you:
Mini Lucky Charm Bundt Cakes
- 4 cups Rice Krispy Cereal
- 4 cups Lucky Charm cereal
- 16 oz. mini marshmallows
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- Separate some of the Lucky Charm Marshmallows from the cereal. You will need a small handful for each bundt.
- In a large pot, melt butter and mini marshmallows on medium heat. Make sure you stir every 15-30 seconds until the two ingredients are combined.
- Add in Rice Krispy and Lucky Charm cereal and mix until everything is coated in the marshmallow mixture.
- Put a handful of Lucky Charm Marshmallows at the bottom of each bundt.
- Pack about 3/4 cup of cereal mixture on top of the marshmallows.
- Put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
- Use an offset spatula so remove the bundts.
*Makes 10 mini bundts
I can’t wait to make these this weekend! Of course I’ll double or triple the recipe so I have plenty bundts to pass out at work on Monday.
What The Heck To Wear When Baking Spring Treats (or at least when passing them out):
To get into the mood, I will be wearing my Lilly Pulitzer Party Hopper Dress that I somehow miraculously snuck past Danielle.
I ADORE this dress. It epitomizes to me the essence of a 1950’s house wife. Now I know women have come a long way to NOT be 1950’s house wives but honestly, every once in a while a nice day at home with abundant sunlight gleaming through the windows and bouncing off the high ceilings, music on, and cooking and cleaning for myself and the man I love truly just feels so right. Sorry people….I’m old fashioned, I can’t help it.

Don’t forget, before St. Patty’s day on 3/17 there is Pie day (3/14). We will all be bringing Pie into work that day- so I’m considering a savory pie like spinach pie or shepherd’s pie- since most people will probably be bringing something sweet. Any suggestions??
