My husband's (Nate to those who know him. or you.) favorite, favorite, favorite cake is my homemade chocolate cake. And being that it's his birthday today it seems only right to make him my chocolate cake. This is the best chocolate cake from scratch recipe. In the history of best. And chocolate. And cake. This is an easy chocolate cake to make and the homemade frosting and cake combo is the best . . .
I can breathe. shhh ooo. [Please bear with me through this post as I am not the best of writers and no longer have the help of Lanet to edit all of my content for me. Creating content, photography, crafts, and recipes are my strong suits. Words are not. ] But gosh I have to. I just have to talk to you all and the world at large about my feeling of relief. Just blessed relief. I . . .
Lovelies! Usually I am excited to get started on my next capsule wardrobe, it means shopping and all things girly that go along with creating a wardrobe. This fall I started out excited to open, put together, and then close my wardrobe but I quickly ended up frustrated and hating my closet. What?!? That is NOT what a capsule wardrobe (for me, anyways) was intended to do. It is intended to free . . .
There are projects that I am so very excited about that I forgo important work so that I can make them. This mini domed cake stand/cupcake stand is one of them. Like the diy ring dish tutorial I recently did for a Christmas gift, this domed cake stand is so quick and easy it's downright shameful. So of course, I have to share the simple steps for how to make a cupcake stand (or mini-cake) with you . . .
Most of my friends and family are coffee lovers. It might be a pre-requisite of being my family, possibly. Or I just surround myself with terribly smart people. Whatever the reason, coffee themed gifts are always a winner for Christmas and other gifting times. always. This homemade coffee syrup recipe will earn me brownie points. They are delicious and gorgeous. Never mind that they are . . .
I've updated the images and directions in this recipe. It has been one of the most loved recipes here on NellieBellie, with good reason. This cauliflower potato salad recipe is as easy to make as the original but healthier and packed with good ol' cauliflower nutrition. I'm so pleased that you all are swapping out potatoes for cauliflower and still enjoying a traditional picnic staple. Other great . . .
This fun project was originally posted in July of 2012 but we have updated the information, images, and content to give you better in-process photos and directions. We have been surprised by the popularity of this garden rock caterpillar but are so pleased so many of you are making this with your children and grandchildren. It is so delightful to know that you are heading out to find rocks, twigs, . . .
My Great Grandma could make the BEST fudge in the world. As, I'm sure, you will say yours did :). My Great Grandma's was all on the stovetop employing huge amounts of butter and marshmallow fluff. We loved Christmas when we knew GG would make up a batch or two and always included a batch without nuts ( I HATE nuts in my fudge ) just for me. It was heaven. This microwave fudge is as . . .
I realize that claiming this is the BEST homemade toffee recipe EVER is bold. But I'm going to do it anyway: This easy homemade toffee recipe is the BEST EVER! But, it really is that good. This homemade toffee is delicious.The kind of delicious that makes you eat waaayyyy more then you intend. And be okay with it. It is the kind of recipe you don’t share. Because you want to be the one with . . .
We have quite the coffee recipe collection here on NellieBellie. We think that the term coffee snobs was coined for us. Although, being MN girls you have to find every. single. way. possible of staying warm. Thankfully, coffee is a delicious way of doing that! Add to that the fact that MN is a coffee super-giant. Both Dunn Bros and Caribou Coffee come from MN. And, those of you poor souls having . . .
It's true, you know. Bring someone a cupcake in an individual cupcake holder and you'll gain a friend, or two. Everyone loves a cupcake. And everyone loves pretty packaging. These diy holders are such an easy way to gift a single cupcake! You'll be spreading sugar love to teachers, neighbors, friends, and more. These are so simple that we weren't initially going to put them on the site. . . .
This dropcloth rug is a beautiful and simple Aztec wonder. It is created simply from a dropcloth and paint. It isn't difficult, at all. Time-consuming, yes. But, not difficult. YOU can do this. For sure! I painted a dropcloth and used hand made sponges (these are just sponges cut into geometric shapes. YOU can do this!) to create my own Aztec inspired design for my soon to be . . .
Kid's room's can be a challenge for most mom's. It can be expensive to redecorate a bedroom, for anyone. Nevermind a child that will probably outgrow the room in a year. Or the decor, for sure. So, when it became apparent Levi would need his room redone I set out to keep costs down and create something that could grow with him. A boy's bedroom on a budget of...$150 or so. That's all I . . .
