“What-I-Want-To-Make” Wednesday

Cool Icing Trick


I’ve attempted the swirl icing looking before on my cupcakes, and it ended up where half of them looked really awesome and half of them didn’t.  With this awesome insight from OurBestBites.com I can make all the cupcakes look beautiful!

Greek Nachos?


This looks too good to be true.  Go here to find the recipe.

21st Birthday


So, my 21st birthday is only a few days a way, and as corny as this might be – I’m most excited about being able to cook with wines…and this might not exactly be cooking, but it looks really awesome anyway.  They are little Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shots!



This is such a funny way to handle those people who think that the whole parking lot belongs to them.  I’m sure it would give the person a nice chuckle, while getting your point across.

“What-I-Want-To-Make” Wednesday

I hope everyone enjoyed the first edition of “What-I-Want-To-Make” Wednesday!  I’ve found some sinfully delicious treats for this weeks post, an ab workout, and two awesome Christmas ideas!

Christmas Snowmen – TO EAT 


These little things are too precious, and they look super easy to make!  This would make for a perfect dessert to take to a Christmas party, or to give to your neighbors as a present.



I wish I was clever enough to come up with these types of ideas all on my own!  This blog post has tons of different Christmas crafts and they are all adorable.

Mini Garlic Monkey Bread

Garlic Monkey Bread

Believe it or not, I’ve never had monkey bread…this is the first I’ve ever heard about it, and I think I’ve really been missing out.  These looks so delicious, and mouthwatering…I’m going to have to make some.  Perfect for me to bring to a Christmas dinner because someone always forgets the bread at my house.

Cookie Dough + Cheesecake = Heaven

Cheescake Chocolate Chip

These should be outlawed in 34 countries, but they aren’t.  So enjoy!

Snickers Brownies

Snicker's Brownies

I love turning favorite treats into something different.  I made these super cute S’Mores Cupcakes once and they were too fun to make and eat.  I like the idea of turning a candybar into something it isn’t, I’m going to try these!

Ab Workout

AB Workouts

Now to help work off all of those desserts you’ve been eating, try this ab workout.  I love ab workouts that don’t involve crunches, or anything similar to crunches.  No matter how many times that I try, and no matter how many people try to correct me – I can never do crunches right.  I always end up really hurting my neck instead of working my abs.  This ab workout is crunch free!  So this is my kind of ab workout.

The Endless Scarf

Chunky Scarf

I need more of these scarfs in my closet.  They are perfect – they keep your neck warm, but they don’t get in the way when you are trying to do stuff!

“What-I-Want-To-Make” Wednesday

Welcome everyone to the first official “What-I-Want-To-Make” Wednesday!

Upon starting this blog, I’ve come to realize that there are so many people out there with such great ideas; and, there are so many times that I see great ideas for crafts that I wish I would’ve known of previously, or recipes for food that I can’t wait to try.  Every Wednesday I’m going to create a blog post highlighting the best things that I’ve seen this week!

DIY Awesomeness – Workout Shirt


I love new workout clothes, and don’t lie – when you get new workout clothes, it helps motivate you for at least one day.  Let’s face it, we can’t buy workout clothes every time we need a good push in motivation, but we CAN create our own workout shirts to give us some motivation (well, until you run out of shirts that you are willing to cut up…but that is besides the point)!  This looks too simple to mess up, so I’m going to have to give this one a try.  Of course, this link has been sitting on my Pinterest for ages, but I still haven’t gotten around to it.  I’ll let everyone know how this one turns out!

Healthy Eating Recipe – Asian Chicken Kabobs


I found this awesome recipe at MyBakingAddiction.com, and it looks like one of those meals when you are anxiously awaiting for your meal at a restaurant- and, you keep seeing everyone else’s meal be brought out and you think to yourself “oh my gosh, what did they order?”  Then you end up jealous of what everyone else is eating.  Don’t lie, I know you all do it.  If you use wooden skewers, don’t forget to soak them in water at least for 20 minutes before using!  This gives me a great excuse to go over to my dad’s and use his fancy new gas grill.

Sweet Tooth – Dulce de Leche Brownies


As soon as I get around to making these, my fiancee will be singing my praises, going to work bragging about how awesome my cooking is, and then every time one of his friends comes over they will be demanding some.  These make my eyes drool just looking at them.  There’s so much deliciousness in this one picture, it is so hard to take all in.  These will be on my dessert menu soon.  So glad I found the thingswemake blog!

Fashion Copycat

oversize sweater

Comfort and fashion – where could this outfit go wrong?  I love oversized sweaters and I love boots, so perfect outfit choice.

I hope everyone has enjoyed the first “What-I-Want-To-Make” Wednesday!  If you have any suggestions for what I should make next – send them my way!  Have a good day.
