It is now officially fall and I couldn’t be more excited. Fall is my favorite season and I especially love fall baking. I have been wanting to add pumpkin bars to my recipe collection for a couple seasons now. I decided to take Paula Deen’s recipe and adapt it to my own liking. I think […]

The Perfect Chocolate Cupcake …

The Perfect Chocolate Cupcake with Salted Caramel Buttercream!... These cupcakes are tried and true to be the best! I can't wait to make them! #cupcake #caramel #chocolate
