Whatever Friday

wf 11_9

Happy Friday! It feels weird being Friday night, doesn't it? Please still read this post even though it isn't here on Friday bright and early, mmkay? 1. This week was week one of the two weeks of pie. I've had SO much fun making pies. Have you had fun looking at them? Yes? Good, because we have a whole other week to go! Here are the pies I brought you this week: Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie  Pie {Rich, indulgent, and GOOD.} Coconut French Silk Pie {The crust is like crack.} Cherry Ice Cream Pie {Ice cream is perfect for Thanksgiving, BTW.} and, mini pies! Turtle Brownie Pies, to be exact. I also added a fourth post into my week. Thanks for reading!! 2. This week, all the classes at Jordan's school performed a … {continue reading}

Turtle Brownie Pies

turtle brownie pies

These Turtle Brownie Pies are the perfect bite for any party! Well, hello. Something seems strange. Is the air different? Or...maybe you have a new haircut? Oh wait, I know what it is. I'm posting a new recipe on a Thursday night! I've decided I want to post more recipes. Because I'm not fat enough making you sugar, I want to make you more. And that means I get to talk to you more too! Aren't you, like, super excited? {crickets} Anyway, I'm here for an extra day. I'm thinking mostly it'll be recipes...but sometimes I'll do round-ups too. Like, next week for the end of the #2weeksofpie I'm planning a massive pie round-up. It's gonna be epic. {I really just like saying epic.} But wait, you cry. What about … {continue reading}

Cherry Ice Cream Pie

Cherry Ice Cream Pie 2 words

Yesterday I talked about some of the things I'm thankful for. But I forgot one. I forgot about this blog; and how thankful  I am for it. I was Facebook chatting with Ashton the other night about how happy we are to be out of the "rat race" of employment. I used to be a teacher, and while I loved it, I was a statistic: burned out after 5 years, totally disillusioned and disgusted with the hoops, red-tape, and parental and student entitlement. This is not to say I'll never have an office job again, but I am SO thankful that, right now, I am able to have a job that is my bliss. This blog has opened up so many opportunities for me. I'm thankful for the friends that I have made. I'm thankful that I get to spend my days in my workout … {continue reading}

Coconut French Silk Pie

Coconut French Silk #Pie by Crazy for Crust

And the #2weeksofpie is back! Here, without further adieu, is pie #2... I have noticed on Facebook this month that people are posting something they are thankful for each day. I think it's such a great idea for the month of November (or anytime, really). Now, if only I could remember to do things like that everyday, we'd be golden. Like, I remember to shower and stuff. And eat, I never forget to do that. But I'm horrible at things like status updates and Instagram photo-a-day challenges. Heck, I barely remember to do the dishes everyday. {Or, maybe my "forgetting" is subconsciously so that my husband gets to the sink first?} Anyway. This post is part of the Thankful Series at The NY Melrose Family. Each day this week a … {continue reading}

I hope you guys like pie. Because you're going to see a lot of it over the next few weeks. Why? Because it's the Two Weeks of Pie! (#2weeksofpie) November is all about getting ready for Thanksgiving, and pie is the star of Thanksgiving. {What? You think the star is Turkey? Pfft.} So, to get you ready for Thanksgiving and all things wonderful and pie, I'm going to share (at least) 6 pie recipes with you! Aren't you excited? First up: Snickers Peanut Butter Pie. But wait. Before we get into talking about how amazing this pie is, I have an announcement. Jordan started a blog. {Really, I wonder why it's taken so long.} It's called Let's Do This Kids and I really have no idea what direction she'll take it in. I don't … {continue reading}

Whatever Friday

whatever friday 11_2

Happy Friday! Did you all have a good week? I hope so! 1. Why is Halloween not on Friday? I think that it should be one of those "observed" holidays - always on a Friday. One, I feel bad for the poor, poor teachers who have to deal with my over-sugared under-slept kid the day after Halloween. And two, I feel bad for me because I have to be the mean mom that makes Jordan go to bed at a reasonable hour because it's a school night. Friday nights, people. It would be a good thing. 2. Speaking of Halloween, how was yours? Jordan was Hannah Montana, and I? I was myself. Crazy for crust, of course. 3. We blew out the pumpkins and turned off the lights about 8pm on Halloween. My husband says it was because Jordan was in bed and … {continue reading}

Muddy Buddy Cheeseball

muddy buddy cheeseball 1 words

When I was growing up and would have a party or go to a potluck, my mom always brought a cheeseball. Always. Even today, I expect it at gatherings. I remember when it was easy to find the little glass jar of cheese she used (I think it was Kraft? or something?) and then later, when only certain stores would sell it. Those little tiny jars were my milk glasses. Oh, how many Oreos I dipped in those little jars of milk. I've never actually made my mom's cheeseball. She does it so well, why ruin tradition? Now that I make desserts "for a living" I'm kind of always expected to bring sweets to parties. So, when Stephanie from Back for Seconds invited me to her new blog launch party, I knew I was bringing a treat. I mean, have you seen … {continue reading}

Sugar-Free Pumpkin Snack Cake

sugar free pumpkin cake 1 words

 Yesterday, Jordan and I went to a local pumpkin farm with her Brownie Scout Troop. We spent an exhausting (and unseasonably warm) few hours playing on the slide, riding the train, and jumping on hay. {Well. She did that.  I watched.} This pumpkin patch is known for their baked goods (aren't they all?). They sell their homemade pumpkin bread and cake, as well an assortment of pies and cookies. Normally, I just go all dessert-blogger on them and say something snotty like "I can make that at home, let's go." But yesterday we carpooled, and the driver needed baked goods. So, of course, I bought some too. (A slice of pumpkin cake, loaf of pumpkin bread, and two cookies, to be exact.) I still had that funny feeling in my tummy, you … {continue reading}

Crazy Sweet Tuesday & Welcome Home Brands Giveaway

cst 10_30

Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, where life is back to "normal" and I'm buried in sugar, as usual. There's a lot going on this week, so let's get started! Last Saturday, I was so so excited to finally meet some more local Sacramento bloggers. I hosted our meet-up for Online BlogCon and we met for lunch and talked for three hours! That's Hayley from The Domestic Rebel, Heather from Heather's French Press, Michelle from Michelle's Tasty Creations, Trish from Mom on Timeout, Allie from Eat at Allies, and little old me. We ate fries. And instagrammed. Instagramed? Hmmm... I must say, I cannot wait to see all these ladies again! Thanks for the fun. I got to talk about blogging for three hours and not watch my husband's … {continue reading}
