Eat like a Pirate

Arrr, what be this? It’s Cookie Dough Dip. Talk like a Pirate. Did you know that today is National Talk like a Pirate Day? I really don’t know who makes these things up, but they’re really funny. For example, Friday was Collect Rocks Day. Wha?? My little knowledge of pirates comes from movies like Muppet […]

Chocolate Rice Crispy Treats

Crayons! I used to love crayons. A lot. I’d entertain myself for hours with a pad of paper and box of Crayolas. My favorite part was probably the built-in pencil sharpener; but I liked the funny color names too. Did you know there was once a color called “Dirty Sneakers”? Or “Dingy Dungeon”? Sometime around […]

Super-Thick Strawberry Milkshake

I don’t know what season it is. First it’s cold, and my body says: Girl, please give me some Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal. Then the very next day is bright and sunny; over 100 degrees again. Yesterday was one of those hot days, which meant the canned pumpkin in my fridge didn’t receive any love. […]

Chocolate Bar Pie

I’m thinking of starting a new blog. The blog will be called: I love Chocolate Pies. It’ll focus solely on variations of my Ultimate Chocolate Fudge Pie. I’m pretty sure that chocolate pie is my favorite recipe on the entire blog. There’s just one problem: I love the pie so much that I keep making more […]

Food Photography Tips

Julie Andrews had it right. The beginning is a very good place to start. I wish we could jump right to part 2 and talk photo flair. (Ribbons! Flowers! Glitter!) In the above picture: Chocolate-Peanut Butter Fudge. I often skip through the first few steps while reading directions. (I’m especially notorious for skipping directions when […]

Pumpkin Peanut Butter

Once upon a time, the dashing Mr. Skippy met beautiful Ms. Libbys. Nine months later, they welcomed a baby into the world: If you want more info as to how exactly such a baby came to be, please go ask your parents. Or you can read all about it in a seriously disturbing book. About the […]

Giant Chocolate-Chip Cookie Cake

A giant chocolate-chip cookie. Can you think of anything better? Right now, I can’t. But give me a second… Nope. Still cant. Presenting a healthier version of the famous Great American Cookie Cake. This one is whole-grain, gluten-free, and high in fiber. But don’t let those adjectives scare you away; the recipe has the stamp […]

Today’s post was a struggle

Live every day to the fullest. In other words: eat more Flourless Chocolate-Chip Cookies. I struggled with today’s post. Mostly, I struggled in deciding whether or not to publish any post today. Today: September 11th. I’d completely forgotten until last night. My initial reaction was to unschedule the recipe post I’d written (ironically enough, for […]

Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal

Cinnamon roll baked oatmeal. Frosted with my favorite Healthy Cream Cheese Frosting. I blame Ikea. It is impossible to walk out of that store not craving cinnamon rolls. The aroma of their freshly-baked rolls permeates the entire warehouse. I swear, it’s like they’ve sprayed cinnamon-scented perfume throughout the store. When I was little, I thought Ikea was […]
