{bunny ear cake}

Easter Sunday is this weekend. More importantly, Good Friday! Ha! I can FINALLY drink booze again! So watch out, mama’s getting buzzed. With a couple little hiccups in the last 46 days. Keep’n it real, the struggle is real.

Since I have so much extra time on my hands, I made the sweetest Easter cake for dessert last weekend. We had my 95 year old grandmother + her caregiver, Eda and my parents over for dinner after Palm Sunday service. And I served this sweet cake.

It’s semi-homemade. Semi-naked. Bunny ear cake!

{lucky charm bars}

I kinda had a Mom fail this morning. You see, I’m known to be a Holiday Whore. Taking Holidays a little overboard is my thang. This year, not so much. Watching Instagram stories this morning made me feel like I failed. Not really! All the Leprechaun traps. Green toilet bowls. Foot prints. Festive snacks. I was THAT mom.

Honestly, I felt like my teenager was over all my over-the-top Holiday themed goodies. Turns out, she’s not. I think when you become accustomed to treats each Holiday, you actually look forward to them.

Thank god for Target Shipt. Ha! I had ALL THE THINGS green delivered to our doorstep to assembly St. Patrick’s Day green baskets. One for my girl and a couple more for our nephews.

Instantly I felt festive + happy AF! I LIVE for this stuff. And I can’t wait to drop off some Leprechaun cheer to my peeps.

I you too didn’t get all crazy this morning, don’t even trip. YOU ARE A GOOD MOM! A GREAT MOM! But, damn – social media sure can make you feel like you’re not for a hot one.

If you have a box of lucky charms. A stick of butter. And a bag of marshmallows. I got you!

{bay bakes // chocolate chip cookie bars}

Sweet. Salty. Chocolaty. Shall I keep going?

If you’re working on your quarantine bod too, I got a good one for you. Really, Bay has a good one for you!

In the last week or so there is one thing I’ve become very good at, taste testing! Ha! And these bars get my stamp of delicious approval.

Is it possible that baking cookies into the form of bars actually makes them taste better? I think Bay might be on to something here!

{pf chang’s lettuce wraps}

Happy Hump Day friends! I’m trying my best to be peppy AF, but to be honest – I’m not feeling it. Politics. Coronavirus. Nashville. It’s just kinda sad, you know what I mean? And I gave up beer + wine, so I can’t even self medicate (my favorite way) at the end of the day.

Since I don’t have much to say – let’s keep it short + sweet! How about a bomb ass recipe?

SHOP: Tacos + Love Hoodie | Levi’s Shorts | Sunglasses | Hat

If you had to choose between being skinny or eating tacos. Would you choose crunchy or soft tacos 🌮🤔

Or Taco Bell 😆 I’m telling you a Taco Bell on the beach is good for the soul 🌊 add it to you summer to-do list!

It’s been a while since I shared a good ol Taco Tuesday recipe. I’ve kinda switched gears and Tuesday have become a regular Target sharing day. But, I tried out a new recipe last week and….

HIT it straight out of the ballpark. With help of the ever so talented, Half Baked Harvest. This recipe was adapted from her oven baked tacos. I just switched it up a bit to make them a little more xoxo stacyb….and a lot less ingredients!
