Olympic Gold Medal Brownie Batter Hand Pies

Olympic Gold Medal Hand Pies

Make some Olympic Gold Medal Hand Pies to get yourself in the mood for the Olympics!   I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July! We had a relaxing, easy day filled with swimming, barbecue, and guacamole. And a delish new drink I can't wait to share with you soon!   America's birthday might be over...but the Olympics are around the corner! Now, I'm not a sports person. You know that. But I love the summer Olympics.   When I was a kid, Nadia was my favorite movie everrrr. Like, I watched it constantly. I practically had it memorized.   All of my friends loved it too. At least, I thought they did, because I made them watch it with me.   One of my favorite playtime activities was spreading out a blue tarp on my front lawn and … {continue reading}

Cookie Dough Fondue

cookie dough fondue 1

When looking for props for my photos I usually find stuff at stores like Ikea, Kohls, Sur la Table, Homegoods. I only buy stuff on the cheap or when it's on sale - which is probably why I use the same stuff in every photo. Last week, over on Instagram, Ashton and Jocelyn were talking about finding cool stuff at Goodwill. I'd never thought of going there, although I have stalked garage sales with hawk-like mini-plate eyes. So over the weekend, in my quest to shop without spending much money and my need to be child-free for a few hours, I went to Goodwill to treasure hunt for some cute props. Have you been to Goodwill lately? They have interesting stuff. Fine china nestled in alongside plastic, overused Tupperware. Ice cream … {continue reading}

Very Vanilla Bars {50 Shades of Grey Desserts}

50 shades vanilla 3 words

Um...disclaimer. If you happen to be a young, impressionable teenager...maybe you skip this post? Thanksmuch, I really don't want to hear from your moms. ;) A month or so ago, one of my girlfriends casually mentioned that a bunch of us should read 50 Shades of Grey and do a girls' night book club for it. I heard "girls' night" and said "of course!" Then, of course, I had to read the book. Have you read the book? Undoubtedly, you've heard about the book. And what you've heard is spot on...and more. Way more. Like, eons more. {I wonder...if I really talk about what's in the book...what will some of my Google Analytics keywords say? I mean, red pancake disease is already listed. And people, do not Google that. I did. Luckily I … {continue reading}

Whatever Friday {Huge 4th of July Roundup}

Happy Friday! I hope you've all had a great week.1. I have this pipe dream, and I'd like to share it with you. I've made so many friendships while blogging. I feel like I actually know y'all. What's so weird is that so many of you are such good friends...but we've never met. Wouldn't it be totally cool to remedy that? I always hear about the "big" bloggers going to cool events or conferences and hanging out together, and I'll admit, I get jealous, because they actually have met their bloggy friends. So, here's my dream: some day we all plan a trip (not a conference, just a fun weekend) together. Somewhere in the middle of the country, since we're spread all over. Denver? St. Louis? Chicago? Utah? I have no idea where. But would that be … {continue reading}

Patriotic Nutella Cookie Dough Dipped Pretzels

patriotic nuttella cookie dough dipped pretzels words

Do you ever have those weeks days where you just cannot make up your mind? Getting dressed, eating breakfast, working out. All the decisions normally so easy and effortless now make you feel like a confused teenager just willing your mom to come and tell you what to do. Yeah, last weekend I had a few of those days. Most of it centered around this treat. Or, more accurately, what this treat should be. I knew I wanted to do another patriotic post. I've known for weeks. I would say I had baker's block, but that wouldn't be true. I had way, way, way too many ideas. Pie. Cookies. Something with leftover blue buttercream. Pie again. Bananas? No. Strawberries! No. Maybe cookie pie. Marshmallows. AHHHHHH! So many times I wanted … {continue reading}

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 large white ones.So, we downsized and bought a 47" for the family room. (Yes, I like large TVs. That's all me. The bigger the better. Heck, I'd watch Andy on a movie screen if I could.)Question was, where to put the dinosaur that was the old TV? I mean, it was still functional, albeit a dot-to-dot in process. No one is going to pay money for it; the part to fix it is more than the cost of the new television.So we did what all rational, … {continue reading}

Crazy Sweet Tuesday

Hi everyone! Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, where losing a few pounds is futile.Seriously. It is. Not that I'm really trying. But all I want to do is bake. Then I eat.

And itchy to bake.Thus creating a circular problem that never ends.Good thing this house has a pool. That way I never have to go in public in a bathing suit.

Bailey’s Pudding Pies with Thin Mint Crust

baileys jar pies 2 words

I know. Another treat in a jar. What can I say? They're cute, portable, and single-serving. You can't get much better than that! I know I'm about a year late to the "jar craze," but hey, I never did follow trends. I never had a pair of Keds with the blue label torn off. I never had a pair of hi-top Converse sneakers. I refuse to wear flats without some sort of sock. Because, um, ew. While every one in my class was wearing Guess and 5*7*9 and Wet Seal, I was still wearing my Kmart knockoffs. Actually, the only trend I actually bought into was the pink explosion of 2003. In fact, prior to that winter, I had hated pink. And then, somehow I ended up with a pink trench coat ala Old Navy and a purse with a D on it. I still … {continue reading}
