Baked Cherry Oatmeal Cups

January 31, 2011

I don’t love oatmeal…we all know this.  I tried, really I did, for so long to like it!  Mixed with bananas, almond milk, gobs of nut butter and preserves.  And that’s all fine and good, but let’s face it:  not for me.   I’m tired of pretending to be an oatmeal lover.  I need to […]

Why

January 27, 2011

Why would I have a random photo of a piece of peanut butter frosting with squwiggly candles in it?  Well, I could sat because every day should be a celebration…that seems like a good explanation! But I suppose I should say the answer is another simple question:  why WOULDN’T I have a random photo of […]

Sick Food

January 26, 2011

Ugh.  Being sick is for the birds, I tell ya.  Yesterday I had to leave work after a half day because I was feeling so gross!  I thought for sure after taking a night off from cooking and sleeping as much as possible I’d be up and running like normal, but it just wasn’t so.  […]

Comfort Dinner with Friends

January 25, 2011

I have to be honest:  I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather lately.  To the point that food?  It just doesn’t sound good.   Yes, I know it sounds weird but I have to be truthful here.  I’m hoping that once my nose clears and I can smell again that eating food will sound […]

Layered Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

January 24, 2011

Y’all, I know exactly what I’m doing.  This is the kind of recipe that crushes all New Year’s resolutions with a sugar high that could last a week.  It’s not low-fat, low-carb, low-anything.   And it is amazing.   Now, first things first:  you could totally make this 100% homemade, but since I lack the […]
