Berried Delight

Since I have the treats for the kids for our Mom’s Group on Thursday, I now needed something for the mamas. I’m in a fruit craving mode and some of the other moms wanted healthy (or something that wouldn’t ruin their diets), so I was looking for a recipe that combined the two. I had […]

Mini Cheeseburgers (aka Sliders)

A friend had made these recently for a party and she said they were a huge success, so I thought they would be great for Ian’s 2nd birthday party. They’ll be the perfect size for his little hands and the adults can enjoy them as well.  However, since I haven’t made them before, I tried […]

Summer Poke Cupcakes Cones

For our Mom’s Group meeting this week, I volunteered to be the MOD since it also happens to Ian’s birthday.  I wanted to bring in cupcakes for the kiddos, but I didn’t want Jill to have to worry about the cupcake wrappers and what not, so I wanted to make the cupcakes in ice cream […]

Spreading the Love

Just thought I would point everyone to this snazzy article I found about OSC.  The site, Cooperation, appears to be about promoting anything and everything Open Source related and I’m thrilled that they spotlighted us on their site.  It’s always a good feeling when I find someone out there who gets what I’m actually trying […]

Peanut Butter Balls

I am totally shocked that I haven’t posted this recipe yet. It comes from my Aunt Joann and it is fabulous. It is one of my all time favorite holiday recipes (which seems to be the only time anyone wants to make them) and combines two of my all time favorite ingredients – chocolate and […]

Mint Brownies

Jeff P. actually gave me this recipe when he found out that I liked baking and Jesse had a thing for brownies. I want to say this is his mother’s recipe.  I’ve had it for awhile, but I really need to try it since I love anything with mint. Ingredients: 1/2 cup butter or margarine, […]
