Yes to Yum

I'm Nicole; dog lover, photographer, and blogger. I'm also an aspiring graphic designer, pursuing my degree in the frozen state of Minnesota. 

Yes to Yum is a baking blog focused on creating small batches of your favorite desserts and snacks. I find that smaller batches are the perfect way to live a healthy lifestyle and still enjoy indulgent desserts.


February Calendar Printable

Happy Saturday! I’m dropping in today to give you my February calendar printable. With the SuperBowl this weekend (and being that it’s the month of love), I thought it would be fun to sprinkle a little bit of pink into it ....more

Small Batch Basics: Gingerbread Cookies

Given the option, I would probably pick a sugar cookie over a gingerbread cookie. I love the homey spice of gingerbread, but they’re usually crispier and definitely don’t have as much frosting. Even so, there’s just something about the smell of the spices that’s so nostalgic and lovely that you almost have to make them ....more

Snowman Cream Puffs

I’m not one to crave those bedazzled dessert recipes that combine THIS candy and THAT candy, frosted with this popular thing or that; I’d rather spend my time with classic desserts. With that said, classic doesn’t have to mean boring! One of my favorite things to do is innovate one of my staple recipes; whether it be altering the form or flavor ....more

Printable Calendar of the Month

Happy Tuesday! Usually it’s happy Monday, but December snuck up on me a little bit. I love having a break for Thanksgiving, but almost always return to a mountain of work for me when I get back! ...more
