Say, just what kind of Mickey Mouse operation do you think they’re running here?   Hey, laugh all you want; I’m just impressed they spelled it right.   It’s like music to my eyes. Really. Ok, not really.   And if you think e-mailing a picture to the bakery helps…think again. Hey, a print-out of the [...]

As far as desserts go, chocolate chip cookies and chocolate cake rank right up there as the utmost [...]

They tried to be mean. They failed.   This was supposed to say, “You’re a traitor!”   “Drunken Loser”   “You Old Buzzard”   This one’s almost accurate, if you think about it: Like, “You get older, THEN dirt.” No?   Aw, thanks! What’s a riddens? [...]

Slow Cooker Steak Fajitas

Thumbnail for 4103
Over the last 18 months, I have become seriously addicted to my slow cooker. Prior to that, the only thing I really used it for was to make our favorite beer and brown sugar kielbasa and sauerkraut, but last January I started to experiment with different recipes and I even used it to make candy! While I discovered the most amazing mac and che [...]

I needed a dairy-free cream cheese frosting a while back and I couldn’t really find anything without vegan cream cheese, margarine and powdered sugar. I’m okay with powdered sugar (though I try to avoid it if [...]

I decorated some more oreos for you. Moreos. ; ) … I loved the letter cookie pops I posted last week so much that I couldn’t resist making cute cookie bunnies, too! They’re as easy as they are adorable. I used my  Playful Shapes Mold to make the bunny ears and bow ties. It came in pretty handy for these little hoppers. P.S. … take a look a [...]
