Happy day-after-Haloween!   There is only one way to cure that candy hangover.... and its obviously with some more sugar.

I created this recipe for the fabulous Stephie from Eat Your Heart Out. I'm guest posting on her blog today so click HERE for the link to her super delish website and also to see my recipe … [Read more...]

We visited my grandpa in the nursing home, swung by my mom's brother's family's place, then had dinner at my dad's brother's place. By the way that would now … [Read more...]

Mini Pecan Sticky Buns and Pumpkin Cookies with Cinnamon Sugar Glaze

I have been in a sugar coma since about 3 o'clock yesterday. Actually I don't even know if you can call it a sugar coma. Its more like sugar dependency. These Spiced Pumpkin Cookies and Mini Pecan Sticky Buns are so good that my body is rejecting all other forms of food. Banana with breakfast? You mean banana bread right? Or oatmeal? But what about oatmeal cookies..... Worth it. I'll break the cycle when I feel like it. Probably never. These treats are two FABULOUS new recipes from two new … [Read more...]
