Pie, It’s Not Just For Dessert Anymore

Me: Greg do you want some chicken pot pie now? Greg:  Sure.  But what’s for dinner? Me:  Chicken pot pie.  It is not a dessert kind of pie. <Eric walks in> Greg (to Eric):  We are having pie.  For dinner!  All I know is that it has chicken in it.  And popcorn. Me:  Popcorn? Greg:  Yeah.  You … Continue reading Pie, It’s Not Just For Dessert Anymore

Easy As What???

Confession time:  I have never made a pie.  Ever.  The thought intimidates me.  I mean, check out the recipe at the bottom of this post!  It’s not a recipe, it’s a short novel.  (I put the recipe at the bottom because it is so long, I knew no one would read that far so anything I wrote after … Continue reading Easy As What???

StresseD=DessertS

When I get stressed, my sweet tooth usually takes over.  Recently I have been stressed, but have fought my sweet tooth.  I guess since I haven’t been eating my cravings, I’m subconsciously writing them instead!  I just realized that all of my recent blog entries except one have in some way been about a dessert … Continue reading StresseD=DessertS

I Want to Be a Limbo Mom

When Jimmy was little, I was the over-the-top kind of Mom.  I wanted to do it all.  Be it all.  Have it all. For Jimmy’s first turn being “snack person” in preschool I made an entire solar system out of ball shaped cupcakes for crying out loud (I will post a photo when I find it.).  If there was … Continue reading I Want to Be a Limbo Mom

Stressgiving

Thanksgiving is a day of giving thanks, but it can also be a day of giving stress.  The grocery shopping, the cleaning, the annoying Uncle, the complicated pie recipes (see, I told you to use my recipe!!) I did actually bake a cheesecake and cupcakes, to distract from the store-bought pies.  I will post photos at … Continue reading Stressgiving

Oppan Costco Style

OMGosh you guys!  I think I must be a viral sensation.  I went to Costco today and like almost EVERY cart had used my pie recipe.  (If you missed my pie recipe yesterday, click here.)  I couldn’t believe it.  That means they ALL read my blog and ran right out to try what I suggested, … Continue reading Oppan Costco Style

Life Is Like A Box Of Brown Stuff

Sorry Forrest, but you are wrong.  Like is NOT like a box of chocolates. If it was like a box of chocolates, the worst that could happen is…well…getting chocolate.  Even your least favorite piece has some sweetness. Even if you see what you are sure is a speck of Vanilla Buttercream  peeking through the chocolate coating but, after you pop … Continue reading Life Is Like A Box Of Brown Stuff
