This, friends, is where procrastination gets me. I was staring at the computer, mired in writers’ block. I clicked on that Stumble button I installed in my toolbar but never use. Oh look! A new webpage has popped up! On it, a recipe for single-serving peanut butter cake you mix and microwave in a minute.
Well hi there. We are positively thrilled you’re here. Tickled pink really. Honestly, we can’t tell you how happy we are that you stopped by. Stay awhile, put your feet up!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip It’s time for a little confession. I realize this may get me shunned (especially in my hometown of Pittsburgh!), but….I don’t like football. I don’t like to watch it, I never liked playing football with my friends, I don’t even like playing catch with a football. If there was one thing Mike could change about me, I’m pretty sure this would be it.

S’mores Cookies Apparently Tuesday was national s’mores day and I missed it. I’m a little late, but trust me, these cookies are worth the wait. After the sucess of my s’mores whoopie pies , I was on the search for more s’mores type cookies.
Things are going well at our house. We love being parents. We are a little tired, but we can’t complain. Our little pea let us get six hours of sleep on Saturday night.
You know what's cruel? Pound cake. Well specifically pound cake in Los Angeles. We know we know. You're confused already.
I have been experimenting with different mug cakes every since I heard about them about a year ago. None of them have been winners. They were either too chewy, too dry, or not sweet enough. Well, I continued experimenting, and thought why not add some decadent Nutella into the mix. I modified the classic mug cake recipe, added Nutella, and a little more milk and oil than I had been using before. The results were beyond amazing.
So, in case you didn't know, Easter is one of our most favoritest of holidays. Admittedly, not for the religious reasons you might think, but because of all the special desserts. We're sure you are shocked to discover that our holiday preferences are based on dining options, but it's true. Our very most favoritest would be Christmas because of all the frosted cookies, gingerbread, bouches de noel and Brach's Peppermint Nougat (TRUST us) and then clearly next would be Thanksgiving with apple pies and pumpkin cheesecakes and, um, hi have you ever had anything with cranberries baked into it, delicious, and then prolly we'd have to say Halloween mostly because of all the candy that is repackaged into "snack sizes" so we can pretend we're not eating as much, oh, and duh, CANDY CORN! Hmmm....we suppose Valentine's Day could sneak in there because of all the chocolate and perhaps Fourth of July if only for those sheets cakes that are decorated like flags and various fruit cobblers.
It seems like once the weather cools down everyone wants to jump right into pumpkin season. Don’t get me wrong, I love pumpkin as much as anyone else, but to me September is apple season. I was thinking about how often apples get overshadowed by pumpkin a few weeks ago when my husband asked me if I wanted to attend a dinner party with some of his coworkers. “Hrmmm. Maybe…”, I said. “They asked us to bring some kind of food to share”, he said.
