Extras

“Extras” is exactly that - extras! If it’s not a recipe, a project tutorial, or a party plan, you’ll find it here in this colorful catch-all part of my blog. In addition to the latest video releases to my newly revamped YouTube channel, Recipes for a Sweet Life, you’ll see new product announcements like my new app (woo hoo!), cookie challenges, giveaways, and other not-to-miss news!
