Caitlin’s Confections: Death by Chocolate Buttercream Cupcakes

Do I have a recipe for you. I made these cupcakes for a weekend trip up to Vermont and was so excited with the way they turned out. Everyone seemed to really enjoy them (the most important part of baking anything) and they looked pretty picture perfect. Now I’m planning to make them for every celebration that graces my calendar in the future.  A few years ago I worked at a cupcake shop for three summers in a row. I’m pretty sure I was a cupcake expert before that, but the job experience really helped me nail that title. One…

Read & Reviewed: Three Thrilling Mysteries

I’ve been getting the chance to read a bit more lately, which I love. However, if I’m going to get through a few pages a night and not fall asleep in bed, I need a book that really has my attention. I recently finished three thrilling mysteries that I have to share for their gut wrenching plots and incredible writing. I hope if you give them a try, you enjoy them as much as I did. The Lying Game – Ruth Ware This story follows four friends as they reconnect and cope with consequences of an event that occured when…

Bloom & Grow

Spring has finally touched every corner of New England and with it comes changes both obvious and discreet. School is moving full speed ahead until the last day, my to-do lists have grown, and the days are finally a bit brighter (when the rain gives us a rare break). As a science teacher, I do my best to instill the idea that the things in our world are constantly shifting and changing, especially people. That being said, I’m taking an activity I use with my students and bringing it here, to the blog. With new seasons, we need to observe…

I always thought it was a college thing that April flew by but holy moly, is it really May already? I blame what feels like a lost month on ‘spring excitement’ and have my mind set on making a conscious effort to slow down over the next few weeks. Although, looking at my calendar, my inner monologue is chiming in with a ha, yeah right. We’ve made it to our last two months of school and it’s almost been exactly a year since I graduated college. I’m typing this at my boyfriend’s apartment which recently became our apartment. Spring has…

Starting a Garden

While I would never claim to have a green thumb, I do have a new garden project I am really excited about. As a science teacher, I am part of a garden initiative at my school. It has really inspired me to learn more about planting, seeding, and harvesting. I love the idea of growing fresh produce, so this spring we’re attempting a vegetable garden. It might be naive, but I have high hopes. Unfortunately, this is also one of those ‘wait and see’ kind of situations. I lucked out that my boyfriend has a raised garden bed already built…

Day to Day

Postcards from Bethel, Maine

This past weekend my family drove up to Bethel, Maine for a ‘spring-break’ ski trip at Sunday River. We’ve been skiing there for years now and it’s by far our favorite ski resort in the Northeast. The eight mountain chain has consistently incredible snow conditions and great trails.  This trip, we changed it up from our typical motel rental and got a ski on- ski off condo through Air BnB. I can’t even begin to explain how excited I was. It was a dream. From our condo, there was a small trail over to the main chairlift. This allowed us…

Two and a half weeks ’til spring and New England has not gotten the memo. I am enjoying a lovely, chilly MARCH snow day today with nothing on my to-do list other than sitting in front of our wood stove. That being said, I figured it’s the perfect time to post my second playlist of the year. My music-mood has been all over the place lately, so this playlist is really just a compilation of songs I’ve heard and liked and put on repeat. There are some old favorites like “The Weight” by The Band, “Stealing Kisses” by Lori McKenna,…
