Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie with Biscoff Cookie Crust – for Mikey

Jennifer's Tweet

I collapsed into bed, exhausted. Dealing with my brothers illness has taken a toll on me I never expected. When a family member is dying I’m discovering there are a lot of eggshells to be walked on. Am I doing enough? Am I intruding? Am I annoying them calling and checking on things when in […]

Eat.Live.Be Week 4 {Recipe: Chocolate Malt Krispie Bars}

malt crispie treats vert

Technically this… Plus this… Should not equal this… (which is down 2 pounds from my weigh in last week of 179). I did a horrible job on my Weight Watchers points this week, but made up for it with keeping up with my exercising. Even got up at 6am on Saturday to exercise… I purposely […]

An Ended Love Affair (Recipe: Hershey’s Toffee Bit Cookies)

Hershey Toffee Bit Cookies

It was great while it lasted… I know it was only yesterday that I was claiming my true love for all things snow. Yes, I threw around the word “Happiness” and how I was “present” with my kids. I even said “beautiful” and “Kansas” in the same sentence, which I believe is a first for […]

Eat. Live. Be. Week 2 Update (Recipe: Crispy Oven Roast Chicken)

Snow Day

One of my very first posts many moons ago on Dine & Dish was about how I don’t “do” snow. I’m not a fan. I think it’s pretty and all, but I’d rather sit in by the fire, snuggled up with a good book, looking out on it falling gently on the trees rather than […]

White Wedding Cake Buttercream Frosting

Ella Jumping on the Bed

I had the grandest of plans for blogging the first week of the year. I had ideas running through my head, cool things to implement and fun stuff up my sleeve. You know what happened though? Life… yep. Good old life. For the first time in ages, I’ve actually felt like a stay at home […]

A Thankful Belly {Recipe: Mom’s Spaghetti and Meatballs}

Thanksgiving…what does it mean to you? I admit, I try to have an attitude of gratitude each day of my life, but honestly..sometimes when you are knee deep in a 4 year old having a fit about not wanting to brush her teeth, an 8 year old giving you drama that he gets treated unfairly […]

Looking Forward to 2010 (Recipe: Garlic Herb Braid)

4234554687_c7bea270a2_o

Well, 2009 is officially behind us. It seems like I know a lot of people who are glad to see a new year come around. Not that 2009 was all that bad… it was just different. I am thankful to have had the year I had, but I am also excited to start fresh with […]

Chance Encounters (and Baked Alaska)

I’ve mentioned this before, but I am a firm believer that every one you meet is placed in your life at that point for a very specific reason. We may never know what that reason is, but even those chance encounters… a small conversation with someone while waiting in line at the grocery store, a […]

Anyone Seen My Mojo?

  I am trying… desperately trying. It seems that many of the things I usually love to do… blogging, photography, cooking, reading, etc. are hidden somewhere among a mass of things that stress me out. Those activities that I deeply love to do are falling into the same categories as cleaning my house, paying the […]

Good Hair Day

  If you are anything like me, how well your hair behaves for you in the morning can be a great predictor of how your day is going to go. If my hair falls limp and is unmanageable before I even walk out of the bedroom, I know the day ahead is going to be […]
