Hello and happy Saturday to you!

To Be Read By Rod Serling
Deedeedeedeeedeedeedeedee You unlock this bakery with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension. A dimension of icing. A dimension of piping bags. A dimension of wreckitude. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of bad taste and even worse skill. You just crossed over into… The Twilight Zone. BUM [...]

Cincinnati Chili

The World's Most Unfortunate Wed...

The World's Most Unfortunate Wedding Monogram
Some couples look for a sign that their marriage will last.    This isn’t it. Thanks to Ruth H. for the initial discomfort.   Note from john: For those you you who may not know, usually “DOA” stands for “Dead On Arrival.”  Less common meanings are “Dead Or Alive”, “Date Of [...]

Killer Thrillers (HEEhee!)
[howling wind] [howling dog] [howling wind and dog together] [plus a sprinkling of light rattling chains] Darkness falls across the land… Oh. Ok.

Thumbnail for 10177
Yes. Oats are gluten-free, but read on for more important details before you reach for that bag of oats! I’ve started getting a crazy number of comments on my Facebook videos saying things like: “Oats aren’t gluten-free.” “How is this gluten-free if it uses oats?!” “You need to stop calling this glute [...]

We are so thrilled to share that our little family is growing and we’re expecting another little bundle of joy!! Little BEB baby #3 is due on April 8th, but will likely come before that, since it will be a scheduled c-section. My husband typed up this super fun “pregnancy alert” and texted it to our family at the same time w [...]

Trick or Treat Mini Cakes

Thumbnail for 10173
These cakes scream happy and not just from their big familiar smiles. Cute individual cakes decorated with bright colors and topped off with tiny candies to resemble trick or treat bags. What’s not to love? These tiny and tall cakes were inspired by this rectangular mini loaf pan. The cavities are about 2 X 3.75 inches and I thought bak [...]

It’s Saturdayyyyyyy! This week totally kicked my butt between a broken laptop, a rough night of sleep due to Joseph’s seasonal allergies, unscheduled pediatrician visits, and errands galore, that I collapsed onto the couch last night and cried uncle. (I may have also eaten a couple of cookies.) Did you watch any scary movies last [...]

Will you guys ever get tired of seeing wedding missed marks? ’Cuz I’m thinking, “no.” Let’s test that theory, shall we?   What the bride wanted: What the bride got: That’ll buff out.   A lovely leaf motif: And a lovely…oh good grief: Actually, that leaf design is so popular I have t [...]
