Ice Cream

Copy Cat

Copy Cat

Over the years I’ve tried to pinpoint my favorite dessert, (see far right column titled: Toppings) with absolutely zero success. Anything, and everything, beautiful and/or sweet makes the list; a moist fluffy cake that evaporates as it melts in your mouth, chewy confections that make […]

Accomplishment

Accomplishment

I always feel a genuine sense of accomplishment (and a little bit of pride) when I bake something new, and it turns out beautifully. This isn’t always the case, so I’ve developed a habit of involuntarily cringing just a little bit before mustering the courage […]

3.14 Pi(e)

3.14 Pi(e)

For four years I’ve intended to make a pie for pie day, and four years running I’ve neglected to do so. I have no problem making pies for every other day of the year, but for some reason this specific “holiday” eludes me. But not […]

The Price is Right: Round One

One of these is not like the other: Having come from and lived in Oregon, and having moved to Utah, I have lamented the loss of WinCo daily, and on multiple occasions via this blog. In fact, if you Google WinCo, my blog will show […]

“He Walks Among Us, But is Not One of Us”

Looking back over my posts this past month, I’m realizing it’s been a lot of crêpes, and a lot of LOST; so in my appreciation to you for putting up with my obsessions (even though I know you love it!)-I’m sharing with you my super […]

“Dude….”

“Dude….”

Dudes! Majorly cool stuff happened this week, and I’ve finally recovered from their sheer overwhelming awesomeness to share. Um,… like how about the airing of the first episode of the final season of LOST! It was pretty much a huge event over here. I mean, […]

Happy Birthday Tipsy!

Happy Birthday Tipsy!

There was no mindless pawing, crying or whining the first night we brought Tipsy home. Unlike Danger she knew right away how good she had it. She strutted around the house and tore into Danger’s toys (and hind legs) straight away. We rescued Tipsy from […]
