Crazy Sweet Tuesday

Crazy Sweet Tuesday Button

Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, where it's beginning to look a little like Fall. So many links have been Fall-like: Halloween, pumpkin, caramel, apple. And I'm loving every minute! So, of course, we have a few business items to attend to this week. Let's talk Online BlogCon for a minute. I know it seems as if I've been talking endlessly about it...but I haven't really talked about specifics since the very beginning. So, let's review. {Reviewing is good. It was always my favorite thing to do in math class.} What is Online BlogCon? Online BlogCon is a blog conference that is online. It costs a lot of money to go to a real-life-in-the-flesh blog conference. Entry fee, airfare, hotel, food, childcare. Because it's all … {continue reading}

Oatmeal Scotchie Cheesecake Bars

Oatmeal Scotchie Cheesecake Bars 1 words

Have you ever made something so incredibly good that you wanted to shout it from the rooftops? Yeah? Me too. Have you ever then downloaded the photos, got all prepared to post it...and then got sidetracked by the shiny new other thing you made the next day that you justhadtopostrighthatminute? And then that shiny new thing became seven shiny new things became 5 MONTHS worth of shiny new things? And you hadn't posted that so incredibly good recipe you made all that time ago? Yeah, me too. In my defense of not posting these bars last MAY when I made them, I got a new computer in July. I know, I know. Two whole months later. But all my old photos are on an external drive I only use for, well, external stuff now. So I decided to go … {continue reading}

Whatever Friday {And a Halloween Link Party!}

whatever friday button

It's finally Friday! Halloween Week has been a total blast...and now you all get to share in the fun too. But first I'm going to make you sit through all my wonderful rambling. Yay you! Did you all have a good week? Mine was busy! This week I... 1. Catered desserts for my sister-in-law. Her florist business, Ambience Floral Design, turned 10! She did the flowers for my wedding to her fabulous brother before she started her shop (I think we kinda gave her the push that she needed to go for it). So congrats to her, she's an amazing florist. {Pssst...if you live in the Sacramento area and need flowers for fun, dances, weddings, or whenever, go check her out!} Anyway, I made a few treats I'll share with you soon. But this one … {continue reading}

Eyeball Red Velvet Pudding Pie

eyeball pie 2 words

These Eyeball Red Velvet Pudding Pies are perfect for your halloween party! When it comes to bedtime, my husband and I are like an old married couple. We head upstairs around 9:30, watch TV for a bit, and I'm usually asleep shortly after 10:00. This happens every single day. Even when we're on vacation. See? Old. Seriously, the thought of staying up past 10:30 gives me the heebie-jeebies. This girl needs her sleep. I'm one of those people who has to get 6-7 hours just to be able to function. I am NOT a nice person unless I get a full nights' sleep. It's always been that way, since I was a kid. As you can probably imagine, having an infant was not a very good time for me. People talk about how you "forget" the pain of … {continue reading}

Ghost topped Pumpkin Cheesecakes with Biscoff Crust

ghost pumpkin cheesecakes 2 words

    These pumpkin cheesecakes with biscoff crust have a ghost meringue top - perfect for Halloween! I've mentioned to you before about the Core class I like to take at the gym. It's taught by a woman from the planet SuperCore. The class is really a good one, and I love the teacher. I keep going back even though she tries to kill me in new ways each week. Which is why, when she has a substitute, I'm often weary of who will be teaching. Once, there was this lady. She had us do strange things with the large exercise ball. And after 25 minutes I had no sweat in strange places and my abs felt pain-free, thus rendering it the wasted 25 minutes I'd never get back. The Queen of SuperCore has been out the past week … {continue reading}

Crazy Sweet Tuesday

Crazy Sweet Tuesday

Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, where it's always time for sugar (and my thighs know it). Happy October! I cannot believe it. Just yesterday school got out for summer. And now it's almost Halloween! One of these days I'll get in the mood. Quite possibly when the weather finally cools off... Congratulations to Meg from Sweet Twist of Fate. She won the Trident giveaway. She gets to chew away for a whole year. I'm so jelly! Guess what? I have another giveaway for you! Shocker, it's for Online BlogCon! I'm super excited about this giveaway. (Well, I'm super excited for all of them. They're all SO awesome!) But this one is one I've done before...for Silpat! Seriously, it's one of my most used kitchen items. I use it almost … {continue reading}

Witch Hat Cupcakes {Halloween Week!}

witch hat cupcakes 2 words

These spooky witch hat cupcakes are filled with a sweet surprise! Yay! It's Halloween Week! Hayley (aka The Domestic Rebel) and I were talking recently. We wanted to do a theme week thought, why not Halloween? I mean, it's the first week of October people. We need to get in the spirit. I, for one, am NOT in the spirit. Sure, I decorated my house. But I am NOT in the spirit. It's kind of hard to get in the spirit of Halloween when it is 100 degrees. I kid you not people. But I know, you did not come here to here me gripe about the weather. Again. {And, really. As much as I love candy and Halloween decorations...I'm not really in love with Halloween. Trying to pick a costume, staying up late, dealing with the eventual … {continue reading}

Whatever Friday

It's Friiiiiiiiiday! Want to know everything I did? I figured as much...since you're here and all. ;) 1. Okay. Let's talk Real Housewives of New Jersey. Total set-up, methinks. Although, I really don't know how I felt about Teresa being involved. I think she knew about it and did nothing to stop it, but I don't think it was her idea. Thoughts? Oh, and is it just me, or does knowing all this took place before the last reunion make you feel weird? Like the last reunion was the reunion for this show? And it said they hadn't seen each other since - are they making a new season???? So. Many. Questions. I can't wait to watch the reunion! 2. Oh, you want to see what food I made? Okay. I made crack balls. I made the BEST. CAKE. … {continue reading}

Banana Cake with Caramel Filling

banana cake 4 words

Last week I hit the dreaded "mid-thirties." I turned 35. Really, it's just a number. I know. I have to check a different box on some forms. I have no problem with the fact that I'm quick sliding to 40, really I don't. I remember the year several of my friends and I turned 30. They were all full of woes and "oh my god I'm 30!!!" statements. I? Didn't care. I was actually happy to finally be 30. I was tired of my 20s. Plus, my husband is older, so I kinda just wanted to be over that gap into the 30s. The reason I have issue with 35 is I actually feel 35. I wake up with a sore back and when I stretch I crackle. My ankles hurt more after sleeping than they do after a workout. (How do you get hurt sleeping, may I … {continue reading}

Cookie Butter Pretzel Granola Bites

biscoff bites 1 words

So. You know Ashton right? From Something Swanky? I know, big surprise. I know her quite well, actually. We've been working on that teeny, tiny project together. You know the one. You're probably tired of hearing about it. I know. But it's what I've been devoting the majority of my days to lately. It's quite a nice distraction actually. Like, vacuum....or update attendance? Clean the toilets....or email sponsors? {Really, if you give me any other chore besides cleaning? I'll pick the "other" every time.} Don't worry this post isn't all about Online BlogCon. Again. Well, that's a little lie. It's not totally about Online BlogCon. Really, it's about these Cookie Butter Pretzel Granola Bites. Or, a party in your … {continue reading}
