Coconut Nut Balls

Coconut Nut Balls

Life is flying by these days at an impressive rate. Just when I think I may be able to catch up, grasp the moment and wring everything possible out of it, I”m falling behind again, watching it all whiz on by.

Like the month of October. It seems like it was only yesterday that I …

Berry Blue Jello Mousse Pie

As I mentioned yesterday, my co-workers and I threw a party for the Blue Moon on August 31st. The next one won’t be until 2015–we just had to celebrate this rare occasion. It only happens…once in a blue moon, after all. It could also be the fact that we’re always looking for an excuse to …

A couple weeks ago, I read …

Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats

Peeps Nests

What would Easter be without the familiar sandy-sugar-crusted, sticky-sweet Peeps?

Well, just about any holiday these days. Peeps are no longer relegated to the once-a-year status they once suffered. Has this taken away from the specialness factor–that now that you can get them year-round, they are no longer something to be looked forward to? …

Peanut Butter Pie

Peanut Butter Pie

There truly is a holiday for everything. Friday was National Granola Bar Day. My kids celebrated by eating a ridiculous amount of them. I don’t want to talk about it. Saturday was National Blonde Brownies Day. I made some Bourbon Pecan Blondies in honor of it, but they haven’t cooperated with my photog attempts. Damn …
