Cake Pops… you’re doin’ em wrong…

For our Thanksgivmas celebration back home in KY, N got a really cool, awesome, yummy kitchen gadget as a gift from my grandparents.  He got the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker and boy did he love it and, let's be honest here, so did I!!!

The difference between my husband and me

Obviously there are many, but a text / email conversation that I had with my husband this morning really highlighted one huge difference between us—he lives in “effed up weird-land” and I don’t. Well... not his version of “effed up weird-land” anyhow. On the way in to work this morning, I saw a dead body … Continue reading The difference between my husband and me

Chai? Cookies? Yes, please!

I've posted a few pictures of the … Continue reading Tooting
