The Best Year Yet…

Meet the Maker: Chris Castro

I was introduced to Chris Castro and his wife Tricia through my sister-in-law Maggie. Maggie was hosting a food swap, a once-a-month get together, initiated by the Castro's, where friends and foodies bring homemade food to exchange.

Recipe: Vanilla Bean Cuppies with Buttercream Frosting

Last week was a whirlwind of butter, flour, sprinkles, and more butter with one cupcake class here in Oklahoma City and a second class at Carlton Landing. It was a busy weekend for me, but amidst the hustle and bustle are the moments where your...

Meet the Maker: Elizabeth Diefenderfer

One of the biggest perks of living close to downtown is our ability to walk to several local shops and restaurants. Oklahoma is not known for its walkability (check out walkscore.com), but living where we do means we are within a half mile walk of many restaurants, shops, and...
