Meyer Lemon and Blueberry Bars

Lemon and Blueberry Bar

More Meyer Lemon Madness. I just love these sweet little lemons. I do not, however, love juicing the meyer lemons. Hubs picked me up 10 bags of meyer lemons. I picked up a case of regular lemons. Then I realized I had close to 100 lemons and not enough upper body strength to juice them all. I spent a few days scoping out juicers. I decided not to buy one. Then I came home and looked at my massive pile of lemons.... and I hopped back in my SUV and hightailed it back to the city. I grabbed … [Read more...]

Samoa Bars | Cravings of a Lunatic | Super easy to make and the perfect blend of chocolate and coconut!

Hi folks. We're still on the road, probably flying down some highway right now in an attempt to get mini-me home for school tomorrow. I'm highly doubtful she'll make that first class. I told her I would try but it's a long way from Alberta to Ontario so we'll see how things go. I cannot wait to sleep in my own bed. And hug all my pets and horsey. Probably after a much-needed nap though. Naps then hugs all around. … [Read more...]

Revenge Of The Blondie Nerds!!!

Even the batter was remarkable. Not that I ate any of it. Cuz that would be wrong!

"I just wanted to say that I'm a nerd, and I'm here tonight to stand up for the rights of other nerds. I mean uh, all our lives we've been laughed at and made to feel inferior. And tonight, those bastards, they trashed our house. Why? Cause we're smart? Cause we look different? Well, we're not. I'm a nerd, and uh, I'm pretty proud of it." … [Read more...]
