Daily Dose 7.2.23

This week, I dove headfirst into a whirlwind of 4th of July festivities, baking up a storm and reveling in merry-making to prepare for America’s big birthday bash on Tuesday. But alas, duty calls, and I’ll be donning my stethoscope in the ER during the upcoming holiday so we crammed all the fun we could into this weekend extravaganza. And let me tell you, it was a flawless masterpiece!


We kicked off the festivities with a sizzling barbeque at our friends’ place, where laughter filled the air and I had the privilege of snuggling with my adorable godson—truly the epitome of perfection. Mother Nature decided to throw a curveball and rain on our parade, but hey, nothing could dampen the spirits of our incredible company.


As for me, I channeled my inner baking maestro and unleashed a flurry of deliciousness upon the world. Picture this: Apple Cinnamon Muffins that will make your taste buds tango, and mini chocolate cupcakes adorned with American Buttercream frosting fit for the gods of sugary goodness. Naturally, they were all decked out in USA-themed glory. If you’re feeling adventurous, check out the links to give these mouthwatering creations a whirl yourself.
