You can purchase her new book from Amazon or Barnes & Noble…this is a must have for anyone that likes to have fun in the kitchen AND you don’t even need any skills…really easy stuff!
This book is filled with tons of awesome party ideas that take just minutes to decorate. We could not even pick out our favorites and had to just open up the book & point on which ones to share…they are all so cute!

So Barbecute.
A perfect goody for the Grillmaster.
6 Little Brownie Bites (such as Entenmann’s)
1 (.67 oz.) tube of black writing gel
12 red Mike and Ike candies
2 green Mike and Ike candies
2 yellow Mike and Ike candies
2 pink Mike and Ike candies
6 toothpicks
18 lollipop sticks
½ cup chocolate melted candy coating
12 dark brown M&M’s
1. With the
black writing gel, make a circle around the top edge of the brownie bite. Then make grill lines with the writing gel inside of
the circle.
2. Using the
black edible marker, make little grill marks on the red Mike & Ike candies
so   they look like hot dogs. Place hot
dogs on top of brownie grill.
3. Slice the
green, yellow, orange and pink Mike & Ike candies into thirds.
4. Place one
sliced Mike & Ike of each color onto a toothpick for the skewer. Place on          brownie grill.
5. Cut lollipop
sticks into approximately 2” lengths. Push 2 sticks into the bottom of the        brownie.
6. Melt
chocolate candy coating wafers according to package instructions.
7. Attach the
M&M’s to the bottom of the lollipop sticks for wheels using the melted
candy             coating.
