About Me



Welcome to Coffee and Cannolis! 

For the most part this is a food blog, but life is more than food, so every once in awhile I'll dabble in other things that are important to me. Family. Home projects. Life in general. One thing you probably won't see posted here is fashion or beauty advice, but who knows, maybe one day I'll actually learn how to dress myself and put on makeup!

What's in a name? 

What does Coffee and Cannolis mean? It's about balance - keeping yourself going, while indulging a little. Coffee for fuel, and a little cannoli to relax with and indulge in.


What can I tell you about me?

My name is Angie and minus four years in college, I have lived in St. Louis my entire life. I've been married to my husband (Rob) since 2007, and we have two amazing children. Tyler and Gwyneth. Those three people are the light of my life. We built a new house in 2016, and with that comes more home projects than I expected. Move in ready does not mean personal style ready!  I also work full time in Marketing, so this blog is purely just a hobby.

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed! Vanilla Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/4 cups milk Directions: - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. - Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Mix in sugar until well blended. - Add eggs, mixing until fully

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my! But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?   Check !  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do !  Pumpkin?  Well of course !  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try! One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix

Foodbuzz 24x24: A Very Hungry Caterpillar First Birthday Party

It's hard to believe that my baby boy is technically no longer a baby anymore!  It seems like just yesterday I was a nervous wreck on our way to the hospital, and now all of a sudden I'm planning a birthday party! Even before Ty was born though, I knew I wanted to do a Very Hungry Caterpillar party.  I'm not exactly sure what made me think of it, but one day I was sitting in his room and imagining reading him the first book I bought for him.  Yep - The Very Hungry Caterpillar ! There is something about the classic children's book that lends itself very well to entertaining.  Generally speaking, the focal point of any event (aside from the reason for celebration), is the food.    For those not familiar with the book -  The Hungry Caterpillar is all about food!  He eats is way through many different foods, until he's big and strong and becomes a beautiful butterfly.  A perfect metaphor for a young baby.  It's amazing how much such a little guy can eat - but
