I’ve been working on trying to make some of my favorite foods allergy free. It’s been rough, but I’ve hacked most of them. Here are some of my favorites so far. Linking up with Jenn at Peas and Crayons today too. Been a while since I joined a linky party. Also, I’ve been hoarding photos […]
I’ve decided to forgo voting this month and make Meltaways. They came in second last month, and they’ll make a great Valentine’s Day sugar cookie. [ photo from Landee See, Landee Do ] But if you want to participate in the voting for March, here is the poll:
I have a problem. I’ve pinned too many cookies on Pinterest. I have so many I want to try. The good news is that I can’t eat most of them (gluten) and I gave my dad and grandpa a “cookie of the month” subscription for Christmas. Which means I’m making a batch of cookies to […]
I’m ringing in 2012 by going to the Bears vs. Vikings showdown at noon today (aye carumba!). Who will win? It is a tossup. When I bought the tickets I thought the Bears were sure to win … but now I don’t know. It’s sure to be an interesting game! Happy 2012 everybody! If […]
It’s been a while since I posted some love about another blog. But I’ve been wanting to post about DIY or Buy for a long time. And she’s been blogging a lot more lately, so I feel like it’s a good time to post. DIY or Buy focuses on analyzing exactly what the […]
So I got this … … from Bethany Sew&Sew — in the mail. Today. AND Mark got these … [cookie cutters] [spatula] … from his sister for his birthday. Thus, this weekend, the most nerdtastic baking session will occur.
Last month was crazy. Here is a sneak peek at things that happened before I get to blogging about them … … Mark’s brother Nick’s birthday in Stillwater … … Mark’s 25th birthday in Chicago … … awesome new fabric … … moving … … a really awesome project […]
I’ve been making these cookies for years, but I think I made my best batch EVER last time I made them. The original recipe is here, but this is my modified more awesome (and a bit healthified) recipe. chimes’s “healthified” monster cookies 3/4 c Natural Peanut Butter (or any nut butter will do) 1/4 c […]
I left a little surprise on my kitchen table for Mark. He’s been working incredibly late hours the past few weeks. So I wanted to do something nice for him. Cinnamon Toast Crunch treat in the shape of a heart. So much more awesome than a regular Rice Krispie Treat. Noms.
This week’s Humpday Blog Love installation is dedicated to The Hipster Housewife. The Hipster Housewife is a blog started somewhat recently by Des Moines’s own Cat Rocketship. If you live in the Des Moines area and haven’t heard of Cat, get out from that rock you’ve been living under. Cat is a huge mover and […]
OM nom nom nom nom! What could be better than combining chocolate and beer? Frosting it. With cream cheese frosting. Oh, and putting it in a portable and cute cupcake form. Last Sunday was my b-day and my friend Danielle and I made Guinness cupcakes for our friends to enjoy at my little gathering. I […]
Yay! I’m excited that I finally got around to making my lovely cake stands from vintage plates and milk glass bud vases. They turned out beautiful and eclectic. I’m not sure where I’m going to sell them other than at local craft shows — I don’t trust the USPS to get these shipped in one […]
I couldn’t wait to blog about this, so I’m blogging on the 25th, but this won’t go public until the 27th. 🙂 That way the surprise isn’t spoiled! My girlies from high school and I are going to Chicago this weekend and we decided to surprise Adria by turning one of our nights into a […]
