What words do you think of when you stare wantonly at these cupcakes?
Thanks for putting up with my lazy but appropriate re-posts for the beginning of this year. Obviously, my resolution was NOT to post more new stuff because that resolution would be long out the door.
Instead, my resolution is to take better care of myself and for me that means very little self-induced pressure for things that really don’t matter in the big picture (I.E. Frequent new posts or keeping a neater house). Have you considered the torment you cause yourself over things that frankly just don’t mean much? So my advice, if you think my opinion is worth a grain of salt, is to be kind to yourself, at least as kind as you are to others. Do things that make you happy and bring you peace, and take it a little easier on the self-talk. My self-talk is notoriously fairly kvetchy. Continue reading
Is it freezing where you are…literally? So much of the country right now is under so many feet of snow…and a nice, hot bowl of soup may be just what is called for, and perhaps a Hot Buttered Rum to boot or a one way ticket to somewhere warm. If I were near you, I would gladly bring you over a pot of one of my soups…I love to make soup. It’s therapeutic if you ask me.
So here they are in all of their glory, my semi-famous S&C soup line-up…
Sausage and Kale Soup with potatoes and carrots…so full of heartiness that it will surely knock you out of your winter blues.
I have a strange obsession with The Sound of Music so I urge you to sing along as you read this and please forgive the rather crude missteps in my unpoetic rhythm and rhyme.
When the Pie Burns!
When Souffles Flop!
When I’m Feeling Sad…
I simply remember my favorite postings,
And then I don’t feel so bad!
Happy New Year to all and may 2014 bring a quieter earth, a more peaceful existence and much happiness.
Want a breakfast that is decadent, homey, soft and spicy? Then you have come to the right place my friends. These Gluten Free Pumpkin Waffles are all that and more. They are the perfect answer to feeding those guests who need to eat gluten free and everyone who needs to eat a tasty breakfast without the grainy or gummy texture some GF products can be known for.
I’ve decided not to reinvent the wheel and just show you what Sweet and Crumby has got for the upcoming big holiday. I hope this list gives you inspiration for your Thanksgiving menu.
Where is your happy place? What is the one thing in the world that can pick you up out of a slump and place you on solid ground? It’s important that you know yours and that you can summon it up on any given day when life is more than a little topsy turvy. There are too many moments that can throw you for a loop so please, if there is one take away from this post, research your happy place and know how to reach it at a moment’s notice. It is essential.
As my blog has remained frozen on the last post since just after Thanksgiving, I have been a baking fiend. But, unfortunately for this blog, I have not been baking many new items to post. I have been baking my favorites and distributing my very famous, or not-so-famous cookie baskets to friends and family which include: Katina’s Greek Cresecent Cookies, Finnish Ribbon Cookies, Ginger Crinkles, Orange and Rosemary Infused Chocolate Chip Cookies, Peppermint Death by Chocolate Cookies, Peanut Butter Blossoms and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles.
I know, us foodie bloggers tend to over-do the holidays. I just may be the biggest culprit of all. But, since we are all in the same red hearted boat my friends, I have decided to do a round up BECAUSE I have found some gorgeous and tantalizing things out there, and perhaps you have not run across these posts of perfection so here they are…red, hearted and delish!
Cali from Offally Tasty knocked my socks of with these Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies. I need to see how I can work them into my life between today and Tuesday and you should too!
This is my second year of blogging and time for my now annual “These Are A Few of My Favorite Posts” (for last year’s attempt, click here).
I have a strange obsession with The Sound of Music so I urge you to sing along as you read this!
When the pie burns,
