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}

Crazy Sweet Tuesday

Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, where I hope that all of the Fall sweets you link up will make Mother Nature stand up a take a listen to my pleas. It's going to be 97 next Saturday here, people. Sigh. I have a confession to make. Well, two confessions. One, I'm addicted to gum. Like, I'd chew it all day if I could. I see it as an eating deterrent. ;) Two, I love music...but I am not a music person, if you know what I mean. I love listening to the radio...but never think to turn it on in my house. I have no idea who sings the songs I love...just that they sing them well. So, if you happen to say to me, "I love that new Pink song! Don't you??" I'll nod and say yes even though I have no clue what you're talking about, because I love … {continue reading}

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip PB bars 1 words

This post is sponsored by Nestlé® Toll House® Morsels, the perfect special ingredient for all of your family’s favorite treats! Growing up, baking was something that my mom and I did together. In fact, my love of all things chocolate came from her.  Of course, when I had Jordan, I was so excited because now I could have a little helper in the kitchen too. Too bad I am waaaaay to anal to have a kid in the kitchen with me. Jordan sees me baking all the time. In fact, after dinner, she always asks for the treat I made that day. {God forbid I don't bake one day. She looks at me like I have two heads. Then she sighs and heads off to her candy bucket in the pantry.} Occasionally she watches me bake. And sometimes, if the stars … {continue reading}

Funfetti Cake Batter Pies

funfetti cake batter pies

    Thursday is a big day for Crazy for Crust. It's her birthday! Tomorrow my little piece of the internet turns 2. So I made her some cupcake pies to celebrate. I really cannot believe I've been doing this for 2 years. {Really, I count it at about a year and a half...because for the first 6 months I had no clue what I was doing.} So much has happened and changed in the past two years, I can't even wrap my mind around it. This little blog of mine started as something to keep me busy while Jordan was in Kindergarten. I read exactly one blog before starting mine: Bakerella. And I thought, hey, I can do this too. Sometimes I want to hide the evidence of my earlier work. I've thought about deleting the horrible … {continue reading}

Peanut Butter Cookie Pops with Candy Corn M&Ms

Peanut Butter Cookie Pops

I have a slight shoe addiction. Hold on, let me rephrase that. I have a major shoe addiction. One that comes complete with a high. Before I had a kid, back in the days with two incomes and places to be seen other than Target, I had lots of shoes. Nice shoes. Shoes meant to be seen. Heels, wedges, peeptoes. Sandals, boots, plaforms. Oh, yes, I fed my shoe addiction regularly back then. I discovered the wonder of Franco Sarto at 23 and never looked back. But then Jordan came along, and with her came nowhere to go and a half shoe size. My Francos were relegated to the back of the closet and only the boots came out but once a year. Until now. It started at Mother's Day. I had asked for (and recieved) a pair of camel-colored … {continue reading}

Triple Mocha Donuts

triple mocha donuts

  I love coffee. Actually, it would be more accurate to say I need coffee. I am not human, awake, or kind in the morning until I've had my first sip. It's so bad, really, that I get my coffeepot set up the night before, so that all I have to do in the morning is press the on switch. When Jordan was a baby I was obsessed with Gilmore Girls. I so wanted to be Lorelai, all cool and beautiful, always with a cup of coffee in one hand. I, sadly, am not Lorelai Gilmore. I just aspire to be her. My favorite part of the day is about 9am. I've dropped Jordan at school, worked out, and come home to a quiet house and a second cup of coffee. I can check my email, do some writing, and read blogs uninterrupted and without guilt. Usually during … {continue reading}

Whatever Friday

Happy Friday to you, Happy Friday to you, Happy Friday to you dear readers, Happy Friday to you! I like Fridays. It's really no different than any other day, but for some reason I usually end up bucking all responsibilities (like cleaning) and going shopping instead. Pretty soon Friday will be my "Grey's Anatomy Day". (The day I watch the newest episode, since my husband loathes anything to do with blood, gore, or medical dramas.) Is anyone else excited for the new TV season to start? Last year I was too afraid to share my TV lineup spreadsheet. Maybe this year I'll suck up my pride and show you how dorky I truly am. We'll see. This week I... 1. Announced Online BlogCon 2012! Ashton and I have been planning it for … {continue reading}
