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.

Probably after a much-needed nap though. Naps then hugs all around. … [Read more...]

Strawberry Cannoli Parfaits with Pistachios

Strawberry Parfaits

Okay so I made Paula Deen's Strawberry Cannoli Parfaits. Can you say yummilicious? I know I can. Especially after eating these things. So good. The downside.... I now know why she put the pistachios in the cream. To avoid the parfait glasses looking like they are dusty from the pistachios bits. I laughed my butt off when I looked at all my photos and realized it looks like I used unclean glasses. Live and learn. And I mean if hitting my learning curve means eating copious amounts of things … [Read more...]

My Mom was not the best cook in the world. But there were a few things she excelled at in the kitchen. Peanut butter cookies is one of those things. … [Read more...]
