The idea of ‘how clean is your house’ has been making the rounds on the sites, and Deanne commented that her house is her playpen – clean but not neat. Beth’s is her castle – tidy, but not overly clean. My house is my lab – always in a state of disarray. It’s not that I don’t clean, it’s that a clean room invites some sort of project to take place. Case in point. Simple Simon (pie in a jar) | LloydAndLauren.com
Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Bites We were having friends over for dinner last night, so I decided to make a treat for dessert. My friend Currié loves peanut butter and chocolate combined so when I found this recipe on Chocolate Therapy, I knew it would be perfect. I followed the directions except for using a mini muffin tin instead of a large muffin tin. They were the perfect little bite sized treats – they were rich, decadent, and so delicious.
I love pie crust as evidenced here and here. I also love cinnamon rolls. So, naturally, I wanted to try and combine the two into a giant pie crust cinnamon roll. Flaky, buttery, cinnamon, brown sugar, raisins, no kneading, easy peasy. I love when experiments work out so well! Pie Crust Cinnamon Roll
As previously stated, I’m trying to eat better and shed some winter poundage as we head into the warmer months. So far, success. It’s been four days, but whatever. Being hyper aware of all of the food that I’m eating is a little depressing, but probably not as depressing as it’s going to be putting on a bathing suit for the first time in a while, so you know, whatever. The first two days were fasting days, where all I could eat was chicken or beef broth.
Make this today. Sorry to be bossy. But this is important. I whipped up this casserole yesterday and loved it. I had a chicken in the fridge, a couple of boxes of mushrooms, and the sheer will to eat a big ol’ plate of comfort food. Creamy Chicken Spaghetti Casserole

A must have at every large get together: birthdays, football, holidays – this dip always disappears! This is my daughter Karina's favorite dip, which she has nicknamed "the stuff". It's easy to prepare and everyone always wants the recipe when they try it.

One Perfect Bite From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...Long before the Reformation split Christian Europe into opposing camps, the Lenten season was marked by a ritual called the Black Fast. The 40 day fast was a diet that restricted believers to one small meal a day. That meal could contain no meat, fats or dairy products and during Holy Week, the week before Easter Sunday, the meal was simply bread and water that was seasoned with salt and herbs. Believers rarely strayed from the plan. I suspect shortages contributed to their compliance, and that the fast helped ration a limited food supply during the lean months prior to harvest.
