1000 deaths is a statistic Before I get into today’s post, I have to give a shout-out to Rick for his hilarious answer to yesterday’s question! And now, on to more serious things: “Support our Troops” This message is everywhere: store windows, street signs, even bumper stickers. But have you ever stopped to contemplate its meaning? […]

Question of the Day: If you could cover anything in chocolate, what would it be? .
(My apologies to the hokey pokey) Hello my Chocolate-Covered raisinettes! –Umm, Katie, did you just call us raisins??? Yeah, sorry about that. But I love chocolate-covered raisins, and I love you all, so… Hey, and at least I didn’t call anyone chocolate-covered bacon (which is—scarily enough—a popular search term that leads people to my blog). Poor […]
So remember when I said all I wanted to do in this hot weather was sit around eating salads and ice cream? Forget the part about the salad. And double up on the ice cream to make up for it. In this particular peanut butter and banana soft serve, the banana gives the recipe its […]
I chopped a few frozen strawberries and let them melt into a Whipped Cream Bowl. Then I put the bowl in the freezer for 40 mins prior to eating. Next time, maybe I should also add some homemade Chocolate Butter to the bowl!
Last Thursday, I revisited an old favorite pastime: Cupcake Decorating! On this particular occasion, it was for the club, Circle of Friends, with which I’ve been involved for the last two years. With only a day to decorate forty cupcakes, there wasn’t enough time to make fondant critters. I had to think of something quicker. […]
Healthy Chocolate Sauce! About a year ago, I fell in love with Artisana Cacao Bliss. However, my wallet was not so smitten: $11 for an 8-oz jar? In the interest of saving money, I vowed to attempt making my own Cacao Bliss… it turned out even […]
Fudge Babies, that is. Above, my first time actually making S’mores Babies. It’s kinda expected by now that, whenever there’s a party, I will bring food. Don’t know how this came to be, but I’m powerless to change it. If I don’t show up with food, all hell breaks loose among my hungry friends. This past […]
Today’s Afri-card of the Day:
What’s the longest amount of time you’ve gone without food? Aside from a few “required-to-fast” doctor appointments, I don’t think I’ve ever even skipped a meal. I never understood how some of my friends could concentrate in school without having eaten breakfast. And the kids who did those 30-hour Famines were so inspirational… but I […]
Tortilla stuffed with No-Name Zucchini. Mondo Zucchini Burritos (Makes 2 burritos) 4 medium zucchini, sliced into coins high-quality olive oil (Be sure to store olive oil in a dark container. It loses health benefits when exposed to light) 3-4 tsp minced garlic salt and pepper to taste (I like about 1/2 tsp salt, but you can use […]
And getting caught in the rain… Well I don’t know about getting caught in the rain. Who likes that? Maybe warm rain. My mom is a super-special lady who deserves nothing less than the best of everything. I’m sure many of you feel the same way about your moms. So spoiling her on Mothers’ Day is […]
Happy Mothers’ Day! Hopefully all the mommies out there are being pampered like they deserve: breakfast in bed, pedicures, and lots of hugs. My amazing mommy received a special breakfast (which I’ll write about tomorrow). But because I was working on her breakfast, my own had to be quick and simple. A lightly-toasted whole-wheat English muffin […]
Finally, summer vacation!! It felt like you’d never come. A few friends and I *tried* to celebrate last night by watching a movie… but it was one of the worst movies known to mankind. It was not the sweetest thing. More like the grossest, most-pointless thing. If there wasn’t crude sexual humor in a scene, it […]
