Crazy Sweet Tuesday

CST 10_22

Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, were we're smack in the middle of Online BlogCon! An oh, my, heck it's blowing my mind out of the water. This post barely got written, I want to spend all my time on Facebook! First off, let me tell you all how grateful I am that you come and read my blog and share your sugar. Seriously, this is the best job I've ever had and I can't believe I get to do it. So, thanks. It's pouring rain here today (hello, Winter, I'm afraid your friend Fall decided to skip out on us this year!) and all I want to do is eat all these comfort foods. Let's talk features! Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownie Pie by Inside BruCrew Life.  I mean, it's brownies in a pie. Genius! Salted Caramel Squares by Food Babbles. That … {continue reading}

Cookies ‘n Cream Magic Bars

cookies n' cream magic bars

Holy Cow people. Online BlogCon starts in the morning. I can't believe it's already here...and I'm so glad it finally is. It's like I'm giving birth to a giant blog baby. I hope she's beautiful and everyone love her. {Even if they don't, I'm hoping they lie and say they do, much like people often do with babies.} Anyway. In the need to find something funny to talk about, I'm plagiarizing one of my Facebook posts from yesterday. You know those "Keep Calm and ..." things all over Pinterest? Like... Keep Calm and Blog Keep Calm and Pin Keep Calm and Eat a Cupcake Keep Calm and Drink Coffee Keep Calm and Drink Wine  (<--- my personal motto the last few days) One of my favorites I found recently: Keep Calm? … {continue reading}

Whatever Friday

Ohmygosh it's Friday. Online BlogCon is in 3 days!!! {Cue panic.} There is just so much to do before then. But first, I need to tell you all about my week! Yay you! 1. Well, my week was a ramification of the weekend. If you hadn't heard, we had some unwelcome guests at our house last Saturday. (Well, for way longer than last Saturday but that's when I finally realized they had taken up residence.) On Monday I revolted against my washing machine. So I still have waaaaaay too many bags of stuff in my garage. And two king sized comforters sitting out on my back patio. I'm kind of hoping if I ignore them long enough, they'll either go away or walk themselves to the dry cleaners. 2. Today is the last day we have to comb each other like … {continue reading}

Ginger White Chocolate Trifle Cream Pie

Ginger Trifle Pie 1 words

I looooooooove shortbread. Like, love with a capital "Obsessed With." When we were first dating, Mel had to go to London for two weeks for work. Upon his return, half his suitcase was crammed with shortbread and chocolate. I blame him for the "first year 15" I gained after we got together. Really, I have NO. Control.When it comes to shortbread. One box of the stuff is gone in a flash. My favorite shortbread is Walker's brand. You know, the red plaid box? I remember getting it as a kid somewhere, a small pack of them, and savoring each buttery bite. You'll imagine my delight when the nice folks at Walkers US contacted me about trying Duchy Originals all-natural shortbread, one of the brands of delightfulness they make. I mean, … {continue reading}

Pink Velvet Cupcakes {for Two}

When I heard that Ashton over at Something Swanky was doing Pink Week in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, I knew I wanted to participate. One, because I love pink. Two, because BCA is such an important thing. And three, because I love boobs. My own, I mean. {Not that I don't love yours. I just don't love them that way.} I think everyone you talk to knows someone who has had breast cancer. Breast cancer is like a tree - the farther you spread out your arms, the more branches you touch. I'm lucky; the two women I know who have had breast cancer have had it; they are survivors. And I'm so thankful for it! I know there are lots of causes out there. Cancer research in general, and the American Heart Association are two others that … {continue reading}

Fruity Pebble Pudding Cookies

Hey, guess what? You can now Follow my blog with Bloglovin! Usually I'm really good at writing posts ahead of time. My goal is to have Sunday nights post written by Friday afternoon. Then on Mondays I do Crazy Sweet Tuesday and another post for the week, and so on. On Friday last week, I was busy with Online BlogCon and preparing for the teachers' luncheon I'm coordinating for next week, so I got my photos edited...but no content into the post, figuring I'd write some witty, funny, Dorothy-content on Saturday, sure to make you laugh your heads of an shake your head and say "that girl is crazy!" Yeah. That didn't happen. Instead, I spent Saturday doing laundry. Eight hours of laundry. And I still have more than 10 garbage … {continue reading}

Whatever Friday

Wow, Friday could not come sooner this week. Well, if we're being totally honest, November could not come sooner. But whatever. let's get started! 1. Thanks for linking to the Halloween party last Friday! So many cute ideas. I totally had planned to do a Halloween round-up this week....yeah...that didn't happen.  Hopefully next week? Or, sometime before Halloween? I'm also WAY behind on my reader. I hope to catch up soon. {Hahahahahahaha!} Thanks for sticking with me through the crazy times, y'all are so awesome! 2. This week, I tortured myself writing posts about sugar when I couldn't eat any (more on that in a minute). I begged your forgiveness. I used Dorothy-logic to call these cookies … {continue reading}

Get Ghoulishly Green This Halloween!


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Avocados from Mexico. All opinions are 100% mine. Avocados. You know I'm addicted. Like, totally completely, madly in love with them. I've talked about how I put them on sandwiches. Salads. Tacos. When I'm reading a menu at a restaurant, I have avocado detection superpowers. If "avocado" is listed as one of the ingredients on a menu item, it jumps out at me and I have to order that dish. Can I tell you the number of avocado club sandwiches I've eaten lately? You really don't want to know the number. It's like a compulsion, really. If your restaurant offers it, I will order it. And, well, my love, as you know extends beyond dinner. I've made avocado frosting. Popsicles. … {continue reading}

Butterfinger Fudge

butterfinger fudge 2 words

This Butterfinger fudge is so amazing and easy - and it starts with candy corn! I think Halloween was one of my favorite holidays as a kid. I mean, it's the candy holiday. How could I not love it? {Back then Halloween was the only candy holiday; Valentine's Day was purely give-the-kids-you-like-a-card and not like it is now. My mom did not make three dozen heart shaped cookies and wrap them special for every kid in class. And I kinda miss those days...} I know I loved me some Reese's. And M&Ms. And Twix (the peanut butter ones, remember them? I never see them anymore). But Butterfinger? I'm not sure I remember being SO in love with them. I mean, I know my mom loved them. She always had them hidden in her stash. Have I … {continue reading}
