Cherry Cheesecake

I’m in a Beach Body accountability group on Facebook. I know. Right? I’m pretty sure I’m about to get kicked out. We are supposed to check in every day with how we are doing on our fitness goals. Did we work out? Did we eat well? Have we ingested our gallon of water for the…

Biscuits

Biscuits from Scratch

I have four and a half minutes before giant toddler baby wakes up from his morning nap so I’m using it to tell you about my new obsession with making biscuits. Before the last couple weeks, this never really occurred to me. I don’t even buy store bought biscuits, I simply don’t often serve bread…

Chocolate Cobbler

Put down your new fitness app, don’t track the calories on this one. All you need to know is that every calorie in this chocolate cobbler is worth it. It’s worth your muffin top, it’s worth the inevitable self loathing that will follow, it’s just worth it.  Several months ago my supper club went to…

Corn Bread

If you read last week’s post, you know Chili is on the menu for tomorrow. Which is good because its been raining all day, Mr. Sweeter Thing is working late (told you it would happen!), and I’m finishing this evening with a gripping episode of Strawberry Shortcake. I don’t actually mind when the hubs works…

Budgets & Menus at the Sweeter Thing House

This is one of those days. You know the ones I’m talking about. The kind of days they make e-cards about, the kinds of days that have you wondering if its time to go back to work. I feel like motherhood is kicking my butt and my house is swallowing me whole. The tiny humans…

Apple Pie

Apple Pie {in mass quantities}

It’s no secret that I have a thing for apple pie. We have an entire family tradition built around apple pie. It’s always been kind of an ode to Grandma “B”, who always signed her name with quotations around the B. I know I talk about her a lot on here, she was a rather…

Chocolate Truffle Pie

Chocolate Truffle Pie {Easiest Pie Ever}

Uh….so if you didn’t notice, I didn’t get you a pie recipe last week. Last week might in fact go down as one of our worst weeks ever, for a handful of reasons. Isaac’s second degree burns from my flat iron probably tops the list but there were a host of other dynamics at work…

If you follow me on Facebook (aren’t you tired me of saying that? Just follow me already!) you know that I have declared November the “Month of Pie”. This is for a couple reasons: 1. I L.O.V.E. pie. 2. I’ve eaten a lot of cake lately 3. Pie is CENTRAL to a good Thanksgiving meal…

The.Best.Chili.

What can I say? I’ve been caught. Cheating on my favorite chili recipe. We had a good time, my old chili recipe and I. And I may go back every now and again, for old time’s sake. To relive the times when I made chili with a jar of salsa and cream of mushroom soup….
