Peanut Butter Brownie Cake Shake {Guest Post}

Hey everyone! I'm still in sweltering sunny Arizona. Today I have a guest post for you from Kristin, from Kristin's kNook. Kristin and I "blog" met awhile ago and I love reading her posts, especially her Sunday Funnies and her It's Okay Thursdays. And I especially love her desserts.

How could we not be best friends?Welcome Kristin, and thanks for hijacking me today!Hi Crazy for Crust readers!  What up?? I'm Kristin.  I like to think that I blog about food.  But I really blog about desserts, exercise, t.v., books, the ridiculousness of Alaska...and ice cream.  My relationship with ice cream is complicated.  I love it.  That's the most … {continue reading}

Blueberry Pie Fudge

blueberry pie fudge

Do you ever get an idea that you are really excited about; one that you really, really want to try out? One that you'll be so excited about it if it works (highlights, yay!) or really bummed if it doesn't (lace jacket? Not in any era, people.) This recipe is one of those ideas. Fudge, that tastes like blueberry, that looks like a pie. I have no idea where this idea came to me. Possibly when I was out running, because that's what I do to get through the torture. {I think about fabulous desserts so that by the time I get home I'm totally famished and scarf poptarts because, hey, I just went for a run.} Then I got an email from a company called Lucky Leaf. Have you heard of them? They make premium pie fillings for fruit and cream … {continue reading}

Peanut Butter Coconut Spread {Quaker Soft Baked Bars}

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Quaker Oats for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.I'm a big advocate of breakfast. I eat it every day. In order for me to get through my workout I need to have something in my stomach.The problem is, I get bored with my breakfast.  I eat the same thing, every day. (Are you at all surprised?) A bowl of vanilla almond flake cereal and coffee. Every. Day. And then some days I don't want cereal. And I find my self eating pounds of other food to make up for the fact that I have no idea what to eat.Sure, I'd love to eat a big breakfast of eggs and bacon (who wouldn't?) but that just leaves me feeling full and greasy. Not a great workout lead-in.I love a good bagel and cream cheese, but … {continue reading}

Whatever Friday

It's Friday! The first day of summer vaca! YIPPEE!No more teachers, no more books, no more mean girls' dirty looks...{I'm dancing in the streets now. Give me two weeks before I start complaining how she's totally bored and when is school going to start again already???}Did you all have a good week?I made you some good sugar this week. Let's look back, shall we?1. The Pie That Started It All:To numb my brain during long softball games or exercise, I think about themed treats.And I thanked the bestmostawesome teacher.Now it's summer, my daughter is home 24/7, and she's a second grader.Excuse me while I go cry into my pillow.2. Jordan bridged to brownies on Monday. I made cupcakes. And she walked over an actual bridge. So the ceremony is quite … {continue reading}

Zebra Popcorn

zebra popcorn

Thursday is the last day of school. In just a few short hours, my daughter will be a second grader. {Hold on a sec, while I get my hanky.} I cannot believe the change in her this year. She has learned an amazing amount. She can read, actual books. (She may not want to read, but at least she can.) She can count money. Add and subtract. She knows what volume is. She can measure. And, thanks to a big project she had to do, she knows all about zebras. More than I do, in fact. Did you know that baby zebras are born with brown stripes? And that they turn black as they mature? Zebras are herbivores that live in the grasslands of Africa. {Three big words I had no idea my seven year old could pronounce, BTW.} I was so … {continue reading}

ICEE Cupcakes {and other fun Softball treats}

icee 1 words

Softball season is officially over. It's kind of sad, really, because Jordan loved it so much. I will not miss having to get dinner ready for her at 4:00 and packing it up in a cooler for Mel and I. Nor will I miss the post-school night-game whining. I will miss watching Jordan learn how to catch. And watching her hit, without a tee, for entire games. Last weekend I volunteered to host the end-of-the-year softball party. For 12 first-graders, their parents, and siblings. Yes, I'm certifiably insane. But I love doing it. Even when I was going crazy on Friday trying to get the house clean and do last minute prep and make eight dozen mini cupcakes, when I was growling "why do I do this???" at my husband, I still was having … {continue reading}

Crazy Sweet Tuesday

Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday y'all, where dessert can cure all evils (like hangovers).Yeah, so it's Monday morning right now, as I write this. I went wine tasting yesterday. We started with champagne in the limo at 10am. Who knew that visiting three wineries and having about eight "sips" of wine at each would make a person feel so ... blurry?Anyway, I feel okay today...just still tired. So we'll move on quick without tons of wordy words from me. (As you jump up and down and say "FINALLY! She's been silenced!")And onward...Mini S'mores Hand Pies by Making Memories...One Fun Thing After Another. Love me some s'mores!Butterfinger Cheesecake Bars by The Farm Girl Recipes.
