Crazy for Crust

Whatever Friday

Pin It

It’s Friday! One of my favorite days. Let’s jump right in!

1. Do you have any interest in seeing “real” food on Crazy for Crust? Like…dinner?

2. I want to get a camera/laptop bag. I know there are several companies out there who make them. I need your recommendations! I want something fun, but also functional. In a perfect world it would be a pretty color…and a backpack or messenger bag. I’m not afraid to spend some money on it, but I’m not Ivana Trump, ya’ know? So…where should I shop?

3. Did you enter my giveaway for a Nexus 10 Tablet or $399 cash? GO ENTER!

Speaking of giveaways, we have winners! The winner of the iPad was Derek P. and the winner of the $20 Amazon gift card was Michelle P. Congrats friends!

3. This week I made…

Whatever Friday

Peanut Butter Baklava {Really…no words needed.}
Cookie Butter Pretzels {your new addictive snack}
Candy Buttons {Nostalgia in pink and red.}
Butterscotch Pecan Magic Bars {My 2,345,102 version.}

I rounded up my past Valentine Treats.

Valentines Day revisited

How you likin’ that diet?

4. I guest posted for Pamela over at Pamela’s Heavenly Treats. Did you check these babies out?

Peanut Butter Rolo Fudge. {It’s what’s for dinner.}

5. Let’s talk RHOBH. Okay, so, I’ve always liked her, but after this weeks’ episode I’m firmly Team Brandy. Dude, Mauricio, judge much? Like, you try being a single mom with tons of debt and a cheating ex and deal with people talking smack. Why do they always attack Brandy and then get all outraged when she explodes the f-bomb on them? It’s almost like they want it to happen or something…

{Side note: Eddie Cibrian, who knew he was total slime? Watch out Leann. Get him a chastity belt or something.}

6. Dinnertime! Here’s what we made this week:

Sunday: Potato and Leek Pie (recipe coming soon to a Marie Callender’s blog near you)

Monday: Roasted Cauliflower & Cheddar Soup by Two Peas and their Pod. For a family of cauliflower haters, this soup was amazing. Had I not cooked it I wouldn’t have known. Jordan actually ate it (well…in all honesty, she dipped bread in it, but still!) I used gruyere instead of white cheddar. SO good.

Tuesday: Lemon Pound Cake Mel was gone…we fended for ourselves.

Wednesday: Slow Cooker Enchilada Chicken from Chef In Training. This is my new favorite mexican chicken recipe. I shredded it and made tacos. I also put the breasts into the crock pot frozen, and cooked it for 6 hours on high. Worked like a charm, and they were tender and delicious!

Thursday: Penne with Swiss Chard Spinach and Ricotta by Mother Thyme. I was really, really hoping to try chard in this meal. I’ve never had it and my goal was to try it. But, wouldn’t you know, Walmart doesn’t carry it. Oh well, I subbed spinach and it was great. I love anything with pasta!

7. I saw this on Pinterest last night and had to share it. Because it’s so true! And it’s pretty much the definition of blogging.

Well…that’s about it folks. Thanks for hanging in there with me for another week! I heart you!

Happy Weekend!

    I’ve got two camera bags that double as purses. I love them! I bought them from JoTotes ( The bags are really well made and they’re so pretty :)

      Thanks for the recommendation! :)

    If you find a bag you love but it doesn’t have enough padding or sections, I can always help you add those like we talked about before. Good hunting.
    As for #1 above, sure. You’ve got some great recipes and several of them have crust!!! :}

    Yes! I would love to hear about “real” (dinner) food ideas from you!


    • Dorothy Kern replied on January 18th, 2013 at 2:43 pm

      I’m seriously thinking about it!

    Seriously, I wasn’t a huuuuge Brandi fan, but now I’m Team Brandi, too. Exactly like you said: you can’t poke and prod into her personal life and talk smack and then get all offended when she actually speaks up for herself and drops the F bomb. They always like to call her “classless” for using that word, but wouldn’t you know, they ALL use it and they all talk waaaay more smack that’s waaaay more hurtful or offensive than a four-letter F word. PS, it’s my fave word so there :) woo, Brandi!!

    PS, we should walk this weekend!

    Happy Friday Dorothy!!! How in the world did I miss that crazy good looking fudge this week? Must go check that out!!! And I am in the market for a new cute colorful camera bag too…I keep eyeballing some at Jo Totes and Epiphanie! I just don’t want to pay the money. LOL! Have a great weekend friend!!!


    • Dorothy Kern replied on January 18th, 2013 at 2:44 pm

      I found one on Jo Totes I totally love. But it’s over $100! I need to check out Epiphane…. :)

    I am still thinking about that Peanut Butter Baklava. I may need to cave in and make it! I am totally Team Brandi as well. I feel bad for her sometimes, especially when Faye was all over her at that dinner party. So glad you tried my penne recipe this week! Thanks for a great week of awesome goodies! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next! :)


    • Dorothy Kern replied on January 18th, 2013 at 2:45 pm

      Thanks Jennifer! It was awesome. :)

    Dorothy – I LOVE LOVE LOVE that quote:) what a great share
    dinner from you would be divine – we could compare what our daughters will actually eat
    let me know if you find a good bag – I totally need one as well
    of course I’d love a new camera to put into said bag too

    hope the Sac gang is getting together next weekend


    • Dorothy Kern replied on January 19th, 2013 at 4:26 pm

      I hope so too! I haven’t heard anything.

    Go here and you can pick your fabric. REI does, sometimes, carry their standard fabrics/smaller items. Custom made just for you! And, not too pricey.


    • Dorothy Kern replied on January 19th, 2013 at 4:25 pm

      Oh, I’ll have to check that out! Thanks Ellen!

    Would love to see what else you have cooking up in your kitchen.


    • Dorothy Kern replied on January 19th, 2013 at 4:25 pm

      I’m seriously thinking about it. Once in awhile. Hmmm…


  12. Kristin posted on January 18, 2013 at 11:02 pm (#)

    Love the last quote!
    I’d like to see real dinner recipes. I need inspiration.
    Scott bought our camera bag when he surprised me with a camera. Love the camera, don’t love the bag. I’m in the market for one too…

    Happy weekend!


    • Dorothy Kern replied on January 19th, 2013 at 4:24 pm

      I need to start measuring when I cook. That’s the problem…I don’t! :)

    If you cook “real” food like the recipes you have been linking to … by all means share.

    I haven’t even thought about Valentine’s Day food. The Hubby did make a strong suggestion of something he wants. So, I need to do some music searching.

    Excellent quote find!


    • Dorothy Kern replied on January 20th, 2013 at 6:19 pm

      I’m leaning towards it! I’ve been thinking about Valentine’s Day since Dec 26, lol. :)
