Crumb Apple Pie

apple crumb pie 6 words

So this is a recipe re-do. I made it in the first few months of this blog. And, well, I'm not proud of how the post looks. When Ashton mentioned doing a re-do post and making it a blog hop, I knew immediately that I was going to re-make this pie. You see, this pie is special. One, my husband loves it. He cannot turn it down (and ate two slices of it). And two, it's the pie that inspired the blog name. Because we love the crust and the crumb of this pie more than the apple filling and one night, chowing down, the idea for a crust-loving store/site/something was born. And now, here I am, a few years later, working on that dream. So this pie needed a new place here on this site. Badly. Plus, it's always good to re-do some things … {continue reading}

Whatever Friday

Busy week.3. As I write this, Jordan … {continue reading}

Carrot Cake Coffee Cake


Baking is my therapy. {So is exercise, but that's another story.} Sometimes I just feel like crap about whatever is going on and I realize it's been awhile since I've been in the kitchen. I go to my oven like a moth to a flame and begin to create and I feel better. My favorite kind of therapy is when I'm creating something that's in my head. Not just following a recipe, but changing it. Making it mine. Or making it fit my mood. The thinking, the figuring, the measuring. It's soothing and relaxing. It's perfect for those days you need a little therapy. Like when I realize Andy Cohen is on a book tour and not making new episodes of Watch What Happens: Live. Or when the season finale of Grey's Anatomy is just so...wrong...that … {continue reading}

Chocolate Cake Ball Stuffed Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Chocolate Cake Ball Stuffed PB Cupcakes

Hey, before I tell you about these awesomeamazingyouwon'tbelievethem cupcakes, I wanted to let you know that I was a guest poster today over at Something Swanky! I'm talking about using Curves in PicMonkey and another little helpful commenting/HTML tip. Go check it out! And now, on with your show... I work out every day. I mean I stuff Almond Joy candy bars in crescent rolls for breakfast. I kind of need to exercise. Usually I go to the gym, where I embarrass myself in a Core class or I read 50 Shades of Grey on the elliptical and try not to blush. {Side note: have you read that book? Oh my. It's...intense. And I don't quite understand why everyone is so thrilled about a book where a girl chooses to be in an abusive … {continue reading}

Crazy Sweet Tuesday

Hey everyone! Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, the total opposite of a Weight Watchers meeting.I hope you're having a wonderful Memorial Day. I hope you're relaxing, BBQing, sleeping, or all of the above. Well maybe not BBQing while you're sleeping. That could pose a hazardous situation. But whatev, you get what I mean.Guess what? I'm guest posting today for Jerri over at Simply Sweet Home! I've been a longtime member of Jerri's linky party, Friday Favorites, so I jumped at the chance to guest post for her.Of course, I made a pie. Because pie rocks. I mean, it's Memorial Day and all. An American holiday. And America is synonymous with pie.And this pie is amazing. It's made of a pantry!Just kidding. That would be gross, all wooden and … {continue reading}

Red, White, and Blue Cupcake Tops

red white and blue cupcake tops

Happy Memorial Day! Whatcha all up too? Wait, what? You're not reading blogs on your day off? Well then, you're missing out on probably the easiest Memorial Day treat ever. To be perfectly honest, I never usually make red, white, and blue treats for Memorial Day. I never thought about it, really, until we went to a BBQ last year thrown by a military family. Then I kinda got it. I'm slow that way. Anyway, this is a super simple idea to dress up your dessert table tomorrow. In case you haven't set your menu down to the last morsel. {I mean, not everyone is as anal as I am. I don't think.} This idea totally came from two of my favorite blogs, BruCrew Life (Mini Brownie Fruit Pizzas) and Shugary Sweets (Carrot Cake Muffin … {continue reading}

Of course.So pop on over and say hi to Lisa. You'll love her as much as I do! As a bonus, you'll get this recipe. It's a win-win!Happy Saturday! … {continue reading}

Whatever Friday

It's Friday, yay! Although I'm a little sad, because that means that Almond Joy Week is over.But it's a three day weekend, woot!How was your week? Long? Short? Busy? I'm jealous that so many of you are already out of school. We have until June 7th.Lots of stuff happened this week..let's get started!1. First and foremost, it was Almond Joy Week.I tempted you with another awesome pudding cookie.I gave you a rundown of the 10 pounds I'm going to gain when I got to Arizona next month.And talked about my love of all things supercheap.I have so many more Almond Joy ideas. I may have to do another themed week in a few months. :)2. I redid a little of the design on my blog. It's still a work in progress. I want to thank Ashton for giving us those … {continue reading}

Frozen Almond Joy Mini Pies

frozen almond joy cups

{Yup. Still Almond Joy Week. Woot!} I love the Dollar Tree. It's awesome. I mean, where else can you buy cereal, greeting cards, bungee cords, an American Flag, and a pregnancy test for only $5 plus tax? Although I do have reservations about some of the foods they sell at the Dollar Tree, (perishables? um, no thank you) I love finding hidden gems in the packaged food aisles, for only $1. Like their maple cookie sandwiches. Or the frosted animal cookies. Or like the time I bought the entire shelf worth of Tapatio sauce for Mel's birthday party, whereupon I glued his face to the bottle and made him Mr. Tapatio. Most recently I was at a different store than I usually go to and they had way more packaged foods. And I … {continue reading}

Almond Joy Crescent Rolls

almond joy crescent rolls

{'s still Almond Joy Week round these parts. You excited??} I love to travel. In fact, if we ever won the lottery (which means I would actually have to play) I think I'd get Jordan a tutor and travel all the time. I love seeing new places, revisiting old ones, staying in hotels and eating out in new places (let's not confuse that with trying new things; we all know I don't do that). In fact, the whole eating thing on trips is one of my favorite parts. So much so that I have a "TV Food Maps" app on my phone with which I can search eateries nearby that were featured on my favorite food TV shows, like Cupcake Wars. And then there is what I call "nostalgic eating" on trips. When you visit a place you once lived and eat to … {continue reading}
