I came across this recipe awhile back and couldn’t wait to try it out. Warning: This stuff is addictive! This makes a lot of bars and unless you want to gain 10 lbs., it’s probably best to share. These are very rich – FIVE eggs in this one. This is one of my new favorite [...]

I don’t know what’s gotten into me, but lately I’ve been on a big baking kick. I’ve been looking at tons of recipes to try and they all look so good and I feel the need to make them all! My most recent baking foray took me to very familiar territory. Snickerdoodles. I’m pretty sure [...]

I’m trying not to lose my momentum with my project completion here. I’m having many discussions with myself about whether it is better to seed and fertilize before or after the predicted rain over the next several days, if I should even be doing this in the spring rather than the fall, if I can [...]

I Gained 5 Pounds…

…just looking at the picture of these bars. Oh. My. Word. I am so making these as soon as my husband is done with his challenge diet. 2 more weeks to go! I mean, seriously. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars? Each word you read just makes it better and better. And that doesn’t even [...]

Organizational Baby Steps

I have this habit of working on ‘hidden’ clutter before tackling the more obvious clutter ( like the kids’ toys littering the living room and the pockets of disarray scattered around our home). I was up to my tricks again today as I finished filing the multitude of clipped and printed off recipes I’ve collected [...]

This isn’t the first time it’s happened, but I have currently reached my limit for enduring clutter in my home. I’m a packrat who married a packrat and gave birth to two more packrats and I just can’t take it anymore. Now, lest you think we live in squalor, that is not true. I don’t [...]

…to take pictures of my growing seeds. Well, the week wait wasn’t necessary as they started sprouting after only 2 days.

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that my little guy turned 6. As is our tradition, I decorated up a cake for him. I decided that I’d be brave and attempt a 2-layer cake, which I haven’t done in AGES. With good reason. But not being one to shy away from a creative challenge, I [...]

I was motivated to clean up my craft area because my mother-in-law wanted me to help her with some scrapbooking. I haven’t had my area in a workable state for some time. My husband got these leftover cubicle parts from work so we now have 2 cubbies in our basement office. While he was setting [...]

I have been told that I should add this bit of the story. I thought I had humiliated myself enough in my previous post and could safely leave it out, but full disclosure has been requested, so here it goes. Yet another reason for your kids to be glad I’m not their mother. Okay, so [...]
