Whatever Friday

Pin It

Well. What a week! But it’s FRIDAY people, yay!

So, I’m late on getting this post written. Let’s get started!

This week…

1. I moved to Worpress. (Eek!) What do you all think? (That is, if you can see it. Sigh.)

Overall, it hasn’t been that bad of a move. There is a HUGE learning curve with WordPress. And, I’m a stressball on a normal day…so the past four days I have been a little…um…crazy. There are still some bugs I need to work out but I’m hoping that by tonight at least everyone will be able to see it.

{Speaking of bugs…if you’ve ever had an issue sharing posts to Facebook where no image showed up…please let me know what you did to fix it!}

And I have to give a huge thanks to Lisa from Sweet 2 Eat Baking. She patiently held my hand and IM’d with me yesterday to fix a few problems. Thank you Lisa! I owe you cookies and a hug.

And, once I’m comfortable in my new diggs, I plan to write some posts on the why, what, and how of switching to WordPress, because I’ve gotten so many questions!

Thank you all for being patient with me the past few days!

2. This week I still managed to make you fatter treats.

I made you blondies filled with pie and irony.

I made you cookies with my weird hands.

And I made you something skinny. (I know, I was shocked too.)

3. I posted this picture on Instagram a few days ago.

Who knew I would get so many comments about it? I have always frozen bananas, right in their skins. I freeze them when they get too tired to eat. When I’m ready to use them in banana bread or whatever, I let them thaw in the fridge, snip off the tops and squeeze out the innards. (They get mushy…but are still fine to bake with.)

4. Jordan played dress up last weekend. With my old uniform.

5. Thursday was a hard day, so I decided we needed some after school pick-me-up.

6. This weekend I’m going to try and get caught up. What are you up too?

Sorry for the shortness of this! I’m late getting Jordan to school, eek! Again, thanks for all the patience with me this week, and for all your kind words about my new site! :) Y’all rock and I hope you have the best weekend eeeevah.

Kisses!

Dorothy :)

    I worked on projects for a workshop in January (yes, that far ahead), baked Chocolate Chip shortbread to send to a friend’s son in Afghanistan, made Chocolate Hazelnut Crunch Cookies to send to everybody else on the planet (LOL!), did lots of ironing from a husband’s business trip, and actually have the September apron sewn, thanks to a sleepless (in Seattle) night! Whew, I’m tired, but the work isn’t going away. Feels like Fall is around the corner and my baking will reflect the chill in the air. Have a great weekend, XOXO

      Oh I wish Fall would hurry up here! I hope you have a relaxing weekend Susan!

    Yay I can see it! & it looks pretty. Good job =)

    I’m going to cook/bake this weekend! Super excited about that. And we have a 30th bday party to go to tomorrow night. Also excited about the drinks I’ll be drinking ;)

    • crazyforcrust replied on August 31st, 2012 at 10:13 am

      Thank you! Oooh, I’m excited for you. Drinks…yum. :)

    When I do bananas for smoothies, I just cut the peel off the frozen banana. I doubt there’s an elegant way to deal with frozen bananas.
    Happy Friday! (And you should go buy something pretty for Jordan’s teacher…because she’s probably as exhausted as I am.)

    • crazyforcrust replied on August 31st, 2012 at 10:13 am

      That’s a good idea. Maybe I will. :) I never see her, it’s so different from 1st grade. Sigh.

    Happy Friday, my dear pal. Breathe!! The move is over and the little bugs should be easier to fix than the stress from the move. I hope. I have wine coolers if you want them!!

    • crazyforcrust replied on August 31st, 2012 at 10:12 am

      Totally. It’s okay today, I think the major issues are over. :) Thanks for being my friend Hayley!

    TGIF, I cannot wait for the long weekend, hope you have good one!

    • crazyforcrust replied on August 31st, 2012 at 10:11 am

      You too Sue!

    Yay for Friday! We’ve got something planned for every day this weekend so not exactly relaxing but it should be fun. Following you now on Instagram – just can’t get enough!

    • crazyforcrust replied on August 31st, 2012 at 10:10 am

      I’m glad! I’ll have to follow back. It’s my favorite social media site!

    Aww, thanks for the mention. As you know, I’m more than happy to help you out anytime you need a hand. I’m loving the new look and the customisations you’ve done to the theme. Looks so great, Dorothy. :)

    I’m not having that problem where no images come up when sharing on Facebook. Perhaps try adding class=”post-image” to the first or main image HTML you want displaying? Also, Commentluv isn’t working. Mine did that too when I installed. I deleted it and all the files and reinstalled and that fixed mine.

    Hope you manage to iron out any issues. Did you create a .htaccess file so you don’t lose subscribers? I can help you out with that if you haven’t. I changed my permalink structure when I moved to my WP blog so I’ve still got a lot of post links to edit now. Some old links still have the blogspot.com address. Gah!

    • crazyforcrust replied on August 31st, 2012 at 10:07 am

      Well, FB is working now, guess I was too impatient! I deactivated Commentluv. My API URL is still set at the temporary domain. I can’t figure out where to find the correct one! I think that my GFC followers and my regular ones have come with. Fingers crossed. Thanks again Lisa!!!

    I’ve frozen bananas all the time, but never thought to do it in the skins. That picture kinda creeps me out. Reminds me of something I found in my son’s backpack several years ago….
    LOVE your new digs here. You are so awesome and brave to do this on your own. Just know, I will have questions on how to use wordpress. So get that post written, k? Thanks!

    • crazyforcrust replied on August 31st, 2012 at 10:06 am

      Ha! For sure, I have to teach myself first. :) And, the backpack thing? Um…ew. :)

  9. Jocelyn @BruCrew Life posted on August 31, 2012 at 9:59 am (#)

    I freeze bananas all the time too, but I have to peel them first. The black skins kinda freak me out:-) And then I have to touch them to get the banana out…I’m good with the little bit of extra time it takes to peel first!!! You have been a busy lady! So many yummy treats and a move to wordpress! I can’t wait to see your tips for WP…my time to move is coming up!!!

    • crazyforcrust replied on August 31st, 2012 at 10:06 am

      Yeah…they are a bit gross when they thaw. I never thought to peel them first. Great idea!

  10. Pamela posted on August 31, 2012 at 11:32 am (#)

    I love it, looks wonderful!! Love all the treats you made this week!! I didnt know you could freeze bananas I will be doing that!

    • crazyforcrust replied on August 31st, 2012 at 3:13 pm

      Thanks Pamela! If I didn’t freeze bananas I’d end up throwing so many away! ;)

  11. Amy posted on August 31, 2012 at 1:16 pm (#)

    Congrats on the move to WP, Dorothy! I’ll definitely need to stay tuned when you write about that switch, as it is something I’m contemplating too!

    Amy

    • crazyforcrust replied on August 31st, 2012 at 3:14 pm

      Thanks Amy! It seems a lot of people are thinking about it. I like it so far…

  12. Karen @ Trilogy Edibles posted on August 31, 2012 at 1:34 pm (#)

    I have bananas like that all the time in my freezer! I used them in my protein shakes. I think moving to wordpress for me is like when Rob get’s a hair cut, I just don’t notice unless it’s all wrong. So you are all good! Have a great weekend!

    • crazyforcrust replied on August 31st, 2012 at 3:15 pm

      Ha, thanks Karen! Have a great weekend!

  13. Shannon posted on August 31, 2012 at 5:12 pm (#)

    The new site looks great! Looking forward to your next post. Have a great weekend!

    • crazyforcrust replied on August 31st, 2012 at 6:03 pm

      Thanks Shannon! :) Have a great weekend!

    Dorothy, Your new “home” is fabulous! It really looks great and so streamline! My blog is in the middle of a re-do also:) I always have bananas in the freezer that look JUST like yours:) Have a wonderful weekend!

    • crazyforcrust replied on September 1st, 2012 at 7:04 am

      Oooh, I can’t wait to see yours when it is finished! I hope you have a great weekend too!

  16. Elle posted on August 31, 2012 at 10:33 pm (#)

    At first I was sad thinking you were ending your blog (because it’s one of my favorites)…I’m glad it was just a makeover. I love the new website!

    • crazyforcrust replied on September 1st, 2012 at 7:05 am

      Oh, God, no! Never! It’s my baby! :) Thanks so much Elle!

  17. Heather posted on September 1, 2012 at 9:54 am (#)

    LOVE the new home:) stress seems to be the theme of the week! Hope your weekend is relaxing

    • crazyforcrust replied on September 2nd, 2012 at 7:07 am

      Thanks Heather, I hope for you too!

  18. Tiffany posted on September 1, 2012 at 10:47 am (#)

    I am very excited to hear how you did it. Also, how you are still showing up in my dashboard! That is my one thing keeping me from moving over to WordPress — I mostly read the blogs that show up on my blogger dashboard and I want to keep myself present in others’ dashboards. Hope you get it all figured out soon! LOOKS GREAT!

    • crazyforcrust replied on September 2nd, 2012 at 7:08 am

      That’s great – I’m so glad to hear it! The lady who switched me wasn’t sure how those feeds would work, and I’m glad they did!! Thanks for letting me know.

  19. Desi posted on September 1, 2012 at 8:18 pm (#)

    That frozen caramel pie looks amazing! Never thought about freezing bananas. What is that delicious looking Starbucks drink in front??!!? I want one right now :)

    • crazyforcrust replied on September 2nd, 2012 at 7:09 am

      Yes, but it was light. Ha! :) Thanks Desi!

  20. Shawn @ I Wash...You Dry posted on September 1, 2012 at 8:47 pm (#)

    Dorothy! You site looks great! I am loving your instagram feed at the bottom! So cool! Sometimes I noticed if I use the “Get Short Link” button to grab my code and paste that in Facebook, it wont show up. So now I just use the full URL code to get a snipet. Otherwise I just upload a picture to Facebook and link up the post in the status. Is that what you’re talking about? Does that even make sense?? LOL – it’s been a long day. :)

    • crazyforcrust replied on September 3rd, 2012 at 9:14 am

      Yes, totally makes sense! I think it had something to do with my feed still being transferred from blogger. So far, it’s working now. Thanks Shawn!

  21. Elaine posted on September 3, 2012 at 9:16 am (#)

    I do the same thing with bananas! They are great for smoothies and skinny desserts. And your blog looks great :)

    • crazyforcrust replied on September 3rd, 2012 at 3:04 pm

      Thanks so much Elaine!
