• Don’t Break my Heart Chocolate Valentine Bark

    January 21, 2016

    Sometimes things make more sense in your head than in real life. For instance, in my head this seemed brilliant and when I showed the finished product to Rob he was enthusiastic (well as enthusiastic as he tends to get :) about how pretty it was and how neat it was. He then asked what…

  • Pork Chops with Apples & Onions in a Creamy Sage Sauce

    January 13, 2016

    Pork chops are, by far, one of my most favorite meals ever. Mimmie always fried up big chops with the bones still in them and would toss them into a pile and I’d just sit there waiting for dinner. Served with mashed potatoes and Mimmie’s Awesome Gravy (that’s seriously what we call it after oldest…

  • Make Bubble Tea at Home

    January 6, 2016

    The first time I had bubble tea I didn’t like it. I thought it was strange big tapioca balls up a big straw. But, as it turned out, I now love those big ol’ tapioca balls. The thing I really didn’t like was the taste. I had gotten a very “manufactured” strawberry flavor that tasted…

  • No Fail Bundt Cake – Bake a Gorgeous and Easy Cake!

    December 30, 2015

    Sometimes you want to impress people. It’s just human nature. Nobody wants to bring in the scraggly homemade whatever to the potluck to have it pushed to the side where people say “it tastes so much better than it looks!” while the prettiest thing around gets oohs and aahs from the crowd. So today I’m…

  • Easy Pumpkin Butter Recipe

    December 12, 2015

    Make no mistake about it I know just how lucky I am right now. The other day Rob was driving me from store to store looking for an item for a sponsored post that was stupidly elusive. We’d call ahead and “yes we have it” to get there and have them say “we do have…

  • Gummy Leaf Candy Cupcake Toppers

    November 13, 2015

    I have learned that my car horn is woefully inadequate. Imagine that you are driving and some IDIOT decides they are going to turn left from the go straight lane and they must assume that you’ll naturally dodge them. Or perhaps they didn’t think at all? At any rate they’re coming right at you and…

  • Pilgrim Hat Cake Tutorial

    November 10, 2015

    So I’m totally in the process of making a cake when the sink breaks. Like falls halfway through, water everywhere kind of a nightmare. Rob calls and some guy is at the door, like minutes later. We totally didn’t expect that. But it turns out this guy that they sent, whose name I still an…

  • How to Make Marshmallow Fondant (MMF)

    November 8, 2015

    It’s been quite a while since I made a batch of marshmallow fondant. Back in the day I’d grab my big glass bowl and zap some marshmallows so I could make my homemade cakes pretty but still taste good. If you’ve ever had commercially made fondant you know what I’m talking about. I don’t know…

  • Candy Corn Shaped Marshmallow Rice Treats

    October 27, 2015

    Are you bored with my obsession with candy corn yet? I sure as heck hope not! I think that I’ve shared everything related to these waxy little controversial candies (controversial in that you either love them or hate them AND wish them off of the face of the planet) as of today. Maybe. Perhaps. No promises.…
