Communion Season

It is apparently Communion “season”.  Not unlike allergy season it tends to fall in the Spring 😉 I am not super familiar with the Catholic religion, but I do know that a lot of kids in my area are making their first Holy Communion, so “season” seems appropriate. I am...

Snackity Snack

There has been a lot of snacking at my house the past few yearsmonths weeks.  I know I instigate it.  It’s what I do.  I like to make lots of sweets  to just surround myself with…to have on-hand…just in case. In case of what, I am not entirely certain, but...

Let’s Get This Party Started

So, I fancy myself a bit of a Krispie treat enthusiast. Let’s stop and think… Marshmallows…check Butter…check. Necessary filler (Rice Krispies) to hold to first ingredients together…check. Yes, as you can see the Krispies are a bit of a means to an end, so to say. They certainly taste fine,...

Snack Attack

 Snacking. It’s bad.  BAD. I could snack all day and never eat a meal. Honestly, I don’t always snack on junk food, just usually. Tryin’ to keep it real, folks. I wish I could be one of those people who cut up fresh veggies at the beginning of the week...

Are y’all ready for summer? I guess I am getting a little ahead of myself here, seeing as it just turned Spring and I should be happy enough with that, right? Well, I am ready for the warm weather, but the beachy, pooly part of summer I am not ready...

Wonder Pets Cookies

Don’t you wish life could be as simple as an episode of The Wonder Pets? Problems solved in 20 minutes with a healthy snack of celery at the end… better yet I wish that I counted celery as a snack! Am I right or am I right? So if you...

Samoa Truffles

As most of you know it is Girl Scout cookie time again.  When else would I pay $4 for a box of pre-made, packaged cookies?  A box that holds only 12 moments of bliss. Well, I rationalize things, my friends… they only come once a year. That is my most...

Meltaway Moments

Yesterday I was lucky enough to go to a gorgeous spa at a local-ish ski resort.  I went with 8 other super cool ladies who live around the corner. I know this sounds a bit indulgent, but I will tell you that a lady of leisure, I am not.  As...

I’m old??

Sometimes I wonder when it happened. The “it” being got old. I am sure it has been a gradual process, but I seriously woke up one day last week and just felt “IT”. I will say that there have been little signs along the way, I cannot deny. For example,...

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars

Love touches our lives in many ways. When I was young I was in “love” many times.  Actually, I don’t know if it was love, but it was definitely “?”. I ?’d many people. Back then juvenile correspondence came in the form of the “note”. Usually folded in crazy ways,...

Hot Chocolate on a Stick

This Hot Chocolate on a stick is the perfect sweet Valentine’s treat! We all have our own little idiosyncrasies.  They say this is what makes us an “individual”…or in layman’s terms, makes us a little freaky. Most of us are quiet oddballs, while others are very public…case in point:  Tuesday...

Frizz head/Spongehead

Hair…ugh.  My hair is the bane of my existence.   I was blessed with sort-of, but not-really curly hair.   It is thin-ish, but also coarse-ish.  It doesn’t have an identity. It’s every bad hair day you have ever experienced all rolled into one. When I was young it was bad.  Real...

Proceed with Caution

Is there such a thing as too sweet?  Really? I have heard this time and time again and it makes me feel like my brain is malfunctioning.  I must be wired differently than those who speak such strange phrases.  I need to check my back panel and re-wire, like that...
