Moving From Blogger to WordPress {The Why and What}

Moving from Blogger to Wordpress

Well, it's been a week since I made my move to Wordpress, and so far, so good. I've had a few kinks to work out, but I'm happy with the switch. I've gotten a lot of questions about why and how I moved from Blogger to Wordpress, and I want to answer those questions. I have a lot to talk about, so I think this will end up being a few part series, instead of one looooong post. There is so much that goes into making the switch: Why? How? When? What the heck do I do? What does it cost? I'm hoping I can answer some of those questions by telling you about my Wordpress experience. Before we start, I'll let you know that I did not have my site professionally designed. I used a (paid) theme and I changed it up to my liking. I did not do the … {continue reading}

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

pumpkin bran muffins featured

  Okay, so I kinda lied a little. Well, more like, omitted. These aren't just Pumpkin Streusel Muffins. They are Pumpkin Streusel BRAN muffins.   I figured the "bran" part would scare you away.   It doesn't taste like a bran muffin. I promise! I tastes like pumpkin goodness.   I know that many of you balk at the thought of bran muffins. I usually do too, except for this recipe. It's the one from the All-Bran box, and it's awesome.   My Nana (my dad's mom) introduced me to the All-Bran muffin recipe. From third grade until sixth, Nana watched me before and after school, and all day during the summers.It was from her that I learned not only about a loving grandparent, but also about how lunch … {continue reading}

Crazy Sweet Tuesday

Crazy Sweet Tuesday

Well hello friends! Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, where sugar rules the day. Did you all have a great Labor Day weekend? I hope so! We visited my parents' and then had a relaxing day at home today. Summer still has a hold on Mother Nature here in Sacramento. So it's still HOT when all I want to do is eat pumpkin treats, wear jeans and boots, and get a hot latte from Starbucks. I have a feeling I have a few more weeks (at least!) before we get relief. Oh well. I'll have to live Fall vicariously through all of you who live where Labor Day actually means Fall is coming! Now for the fabulous features from last week... Peanut Butter S'mores Bars by Back For Seconds. It's still summer here. I still want S'mores! Homemade … {continue reading}

Nutella Brownie Footballs with Peanut Butter Shortbread Crust

Nutella PB Crust footballs featured

Are you ready for some Football? Honestly? I'm not really. Football is just...not my thing. My husband? Is another story. Last weekend he did his annual boys' trip. He went to Arizona, where most of his "boys" reside. The point of his trip? Fantasy Football. If you remember last years' post, he's commissioner. He makes spreadsheets and graphs and watches NFL network like a crazy person in the weeks leading up to the draft. And, also, after, because God forbid Peyton Mannings' receiver gets hurt before the season starts. He actually won last year (go Merverts!) I hope that can be replicated this year. They play for money. (Mama needs a new camera.) Of course, I immediately thought about Football themed treats when he … {continue reading}

Whatever Friday

Well. What a week! But it's FRIDAY people, yay! So, I'm late on getting this post written. Let's get started! This week... 1. I moved to Worpress. (Eek!) What do you all think? (That is, if you can see it. Sigh.) Overall, it hasn't been that bad of a move. There is a HUGE learning curve with Wordpress. And, I'm a stressball on a normal the past four days I have been a There are still some bugs I need to work out but I'm hoping that by tonight at least everyone will be able to see it. {Speaking of bugs...if you've ever had an issue sharing posts to Facebook where no image showed up...please let me know what you did to fix it!} And I have to give a huge thanks to Lisa from Sweet 2 Eat Baking. … {continue reading}

Peach Pie Blondies & Marie Callender’s

peach pie blondies resized

  I was a senior in high school in 1995. That's also the year that the Niner's won the Super Bowl and Alanis Morissette became a huge star. I loved Alanis. Like, totally crushed on her. One of my favorite songs of hers is Ironic. I think irony is funny. Lots of things in life are ironic. Like when you get home from the library and there is a message on your answering machine from them saying the book you have on hold is ready for pick-up. Or when you wash your car (or your dog) and then it rains. Or when you find the perfect little dress at Old Navy, and the only size they have it in is the one you wore before you started a food blog. Sometimes reeealllly good things come of irony. The day that I posted my … {continue reading}

Skinny Milk Chocolate Caramel Frozen Pies {2 points+ and Kernel Seasons}

skinny caramel freezer pies 1 words

If there is one thing my husband and I love to do, it's go to movies. B.K. (before kid) we went every to see a movie every weekend. Sometimes two. I still remember the last B.K. movie we saw, In Good Company. I seem to remember it was a cute movie. What I do remember is having to pee, like, three times during it, as I was a gazillion months pregnant at the time. Since Jordan was born we've been to no more than 10 movies. In over seven years. By the time you pay for a sitter, who can afford a movie? Back in our movie-going heyday, we lived in Chandler, Arizona, home of the mega-movie theaters. I have fond memories of those theaters, probably because being able to go to a movie without worrying that your phone is off for an hour and … {continue reading}

Thanks so much for following along! Second order of business this week...the winner of the My Memories Suite … {continue reading}

Cake Ball Chocolate Chip Cookies

cake ball cookies 2 smaller

There are lots of things that I do well. Making baked goods. Eating baked goods. Reading. Math. Being a wife and mom (well, I think I do that well). Eating baked goods. Watching Real Housewives, and my new fav, Beverly Hills Nannies. Having the discipline to exercise (notice I said discipline to do, not actually doing). Eating baked goods. Of course, there are lots of things I don't do well. Like trying new foods. (Thanks to Dr. Google, I'm pretty sure I have food neophobia.) Discipline (really, I suck). Cleaning (I hate it). And, among other things, I am really not good at rolling cake balls. Seriously, I see cake balls all over the internets. Perfect ones. Gorgeously round, plump, and smooth. … {continue reading}

Whatever Friday's Friiiiiiiday. Which has a whole new meaning now that school is in session, BTW.Did ya'll do anything fun this week?I did lots.1. Jordan started school this week. She loved it the first day, came home all excited and happy and bubbling over with thoughts about what she did, who she played with, how nice her teacher is...and then day two happened. I guess in all her excitement about school she forgot she school.If only there was a degree in Social, Jordan would be golden.2. I'm giving away digital scrapbooking software from My Memories. If you think you don't need it...well you're wrong. Don't scrapbook? No problem! If you like to make cute tags, frames, invitations, and general craft thingamabobs, you need this … {continue reading}
