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}

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 eat the entire batch of cookies I made today" contest.Mel is a natural with kids. I remember one time he joined us at the park during a mom's club play date. All of us moms were sitting at the picnic table chatting (where else would we be?) and all of a sudden I realize it's quiet on the playground. I look around and find that all of the kids (ours and some not in our play group) had gathered around Mel and he was telling stories.Yeah, it's good I … {continue reading}

Red Velvet Cheesecake Cupcakes

red velvet cheesecake small

  The Fourth of July is coming up soon, which means it's summer, which means it's travel season. I love to travel. I love to stay in hotels. And I've totally passed on that love to Jordan. We don't camp. Well, Jordan and Mel probably would. To be more specific, I don't camp. That's really a whole post all on it's own, but the gist of it is, if I'm on vaca, I don't want to work to set up my room. I don't want to cook. I don't want to be dirty. I want to sleep on a comfy bed. So we stay in hotels. Another problem I have? I like to be comfortable. And comfortable, to me, is not shoving the three of us into one room. Where's the fun in that? I want to put Jordan to bed and go sit in a different place, drink wine, and watch … {continue reading}

Blackberry Cream Pies {in a jar}

blackberry cream pie 1 words

One of the earliest memories of my dad I have is of the two of us. On weekends he'd give my mom some time alone and the two of us would go on adventures. Our two adventures I remember the most, because we did them so much, were looking at airplanes, and looking at boats. My favorite boat in the dry-dock boat yard was the "naked lady boat." Because, well, she had a naked lady chalk outlined on the side. But the things I remember most about our outings were Cheetos and orange soda. And occasionally chocolate milk. I still remember the little store we'd stop and get them at. And I remember the taste of the orange soda. These Blackberry Cream Pies really have nothing to do with orange soda. Or Cheetos (ew, that would be gross. Or … {continue reading}
