This post is sponsored by Nestlé® Toll House® Morsels, the perfect special ingredient for all of your family’s favorite treats! Growing up, baking was something that my mom and I did together. In fact, my love of all things chocolate came from her.  Of course, when I had Jordan, I was so excited because now I could have a little helper in the kitchen too. Too bad I am waaaaay to anal to have a kid in the kitchen with me. Jordan sees me baking all the time. In fact, after dinner, she always asks for the treat I made that day. {God forbid I don't bake one day. She looks at me like I have two heads. Then she sighs and heads off to her candy bucket in the pantry.} Occasionally she watches me bake. And sometimes, if the stars … {continue reading}

Hey there friends. It's Frrriiiiday. Woot! Who had a good week? Hopefully...all of you. Did you do a lot? I feel like life is never ending, am I the only one? Here's what I did this week: 1. My blog turned 2! And I'm giving away some of my favorite things. Oh, and I made pie. Of course. I would like to say, all your sweet comments and FB posts and tweets are just making me a little emotional. I heart all of you too! Thank you for being not just loyal visitors, but friends too. :) 2. I hijacked Back for Seconds while she was out of town. I love that girl and I know you will too! I made her some Pecan Pie Poptarts. Go see! 3. Ashton and I revealed our first big Online BlogCon giveaway. A Kindle Fire HD 8.9"! … {continue reading}

Funfetti Cake Batter Pies

    Thursday is a big day for Crazy for Crust. It's her birthday! Tomorrow my little piece of the internet turns 2. So I made her some cupcake pies to celebrate. I really cannot believe I've been doing this for 2 years. {Really, I count it at about a year and a half...because for the first 6 months I had no clue what I was doing.} So much has happened and changed in the past two years, I can't even wrap my mind around it. This little blog of mine started as something to keep me busy while Jordan was in Kindergarten. I read exactly one blog before starting mine: Bakerella. And I thought, hey, I can do this too. Sometimes I want to hide the evidence of my earlier work. I've thought about deleting the horrible … {continue reading}

Peanut Butter Cookie Pops with Candy Corn M&Ms

Peanut Butter Cookie Pops

I have a slight shoe addiction. Hold on, let me rephrase that. I have a major shoe addiction. One that comes complete with a high. Before I had a kid, back in the days with two incomes and places to be seen other than Target, I had lots of shoes. Nice shoes. Shoes meant to be seen. Heels, wedges, peeptoes. Sandals, boots, plaforms. Oh, yes, I fed my shoe addiction regularly back then. I discovered the wonder of Franco Sarto at 23 and never looked back. But then Jordan came along, and with her came nowhere to go and a half shoe size. My Francos were relegated to the back of the closet and only the boots came out but once a year. Until now. It started at Mother's Day. I had asked for (and recieved) a pair of camel-colored … {continue reading}

Triple Mocha Donuts

  I love coffee. Actually, it would be more accurate to say I need coffee. I am not human, awake, or kind in the morning until I've had my first sip. It's so bad, really, that I get my coffeepot set up the night before, so that all I have to do in the morning is press the on switch. When Jordan was a baby I was obsessed with Gilmore Girls. I so wanted to be Lorelai, all cool and beautiful, always with a cup of coffee in one hand. I, sadly, am not Lorelai Gilmore. I just aspire to be her. My favorite part of the day is about 9am. I've dropped Jordan at school, worked out, and come home to a quiet house and a second cup of coffee. I can check my email, do some writing, and read blogs uninterrupted and without guilt. Usually during … {continue reading}

Whatever Friday

Happy Friday to you, Happy Friday to you, Happy Friday to you dear readers, Happy Friday to you! I like Fridays. It's really no different than any other day, but for some reason I usually end up bucking all responsibilities (like cleaning) and going shopping instead. Pretty soon Friday will be my "Grey's Anatomy Day". (The day I watch the newest episode, since my husband loathes anything to do with blood, gore, or medical dramas.) Is anyone else excited for the new TV season to start? Last year I was too afraid to share my TV lineup spreadsheet. Maybe this year I'll suck up my pride and show you how dorky I truly am. We'll see. This week I... 1. Announced Online BlogCon 2012! Ashton and I have been planning it for … {continue reading}

Moving from Blogger to WordPress {Part 2: The How and How Much}

Moving from Blogger to Wordpress

Has your head healed from all the exploding last time? Yes? Good, let's get started. Last time I told you why I switched to Wordpress and gave you a general overview of Wordpress, hosting, and themes. Let's talk more about that, shall we? Hosting Using itself is free. You don't need to pay to use it. However, it won't work without hosting. That  you have to pay for. There are lots of hosting options out there. I went with Bluehost, because they came highly recommended by several people, including Amy (Blogging with Amy) and the designer who did my actual transfer. Bluehost is a hosting company and you pay to use it. The only catch with them is that you pay up front. They draw you in with "As low as $5 per month!" … {continue reading}

S’mores Granola

Hey, have you registered for Online BlogCon yet? What are you waiting for? Go check it out! If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, or even read me once in awhile, you'll know that I've been part of the red-faced runners (#rfr5k) for the last few months. The "big race" weekend was this one past. Running a 5k, for me, is a huge achievement. One that I never thought, before 2 years ago, I could do. Now I've done three, and I run an average of 3 miles a few times a week. Running an organized 5k is really not that much different for me than running for exercise on a random Monday morning. Which is why, when I join a race, I like it to have personal meaning. This past Sunday, I raced in the 9/11 Run to Remember in Sacramento. It's a … {continue reading}
