Butter Pecan Pie Ice Cream

Last week we bought a new television. The one in our family room, while still functional, was starting to have pixel problems. As in, I could read the constellations from my couch. And whenever there was a close-up of Gretchen (RHOOC, obvi) her face was covered in teensy tiny black dots, soon to turn into […]

Cookies ‘n Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Okay, so I couldn’t let Father’s Day go by without talking about my husband. He’s such an awesome dad to Jordan.He’s so freakin’ awesome that I’m willing to overlook the fact that he can idly sit by and eat his WW desserts and fat-free Breyers instead of joining me in the “let’s see who can […]

Banana Cream Pie Ice Cream {without a machine!}

banana cream pie ice cream

This Banana Cream Pie Ice Cream is made without a machine and tastes just like a DQ Blizzard! One of the things I love about living where I do (outside Sacramento) is how close it is to lakes and mountains. Lake Tahoe is less than two hours away, making it super easy to head to […]

Tiramisu Cups {To Go}


I sang karaoke. Sober. {I know, I can’t believe it either.} Last Friday night a friend of mine hosted a mom’s night out – ’80s style. There were hot pink shirts, scrunchies, leg warmers, NKOTB accessories, and spandex. And Love Shack on the karaoke machine. Oh, and Like a Virgin. {Funny side story: Jordan used […]

Dr. Seuss Snacks

Dr. Seuss Snacks

  Is it totally inappropriate to serve 7-year-olds smoothies in shot glasses? Don’t answer that, too late. I already did. Last Friday was Dr. Seuss’ birthday.  I know, this post is late. But I had an excuse. Plus, I made it, I served it, and it deserved to be posted. Dr. Seuss is good anytime, […]

Nutella Mousse {for two}

Last Thursday I had one of those mornings. It all started going south when my computer decided to channel it’s inner turtle. It was running so slow it took me an hour to do what should have taken 15 minutes. Then Jordan was taking her sweet time getting ready to go to school. By the […]

The Party

So, yesterday was my husbands’ birthday. What, you didn’t know? (Just kidding.)  I thought, since I’ve bored you to tears talked about this party an annoying amount a lot in the past few weeks, that I’d share it with you. Everything happened exactly as I had hoped. My husband was so happy all day. He […]

Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips & Chocolate Sauce


If you haven’t already guessed, I love sweets. A lot. Sure, I like me a bag of chips now and again, but usually when I go for a snack it’s got sugar in it. So my sweet tooth was feeling left out of the Super Bowl Snack planning. Chips and dip are a staple for […]

For the Doggies in your life…

I do a lot of baking at Christmastime. I bake for neighbors, friends, teachers, family…and dogs. Let me explain. Up until a couple years ago, we only had our cat, Callie. She’s really worth a blog post all her own, and if you know her you know what I’m talking about. Anyway, Callie is notoriously […]

Bean Stuff

bean stuff1

This is one of those recipes that, when mentioned, causes instant salivation for me. It’s a recipe I grew up with that I hope to pass on to my daughter someday (if she ever gets over her pickiness and actually tries it). When I think of this recipe, I remember sitting around the dinner table […]
