Sticky, sweet, crunchy…and easy enough for a child to make. I still remember sticking the gooey cereal covered spoon […]

Despite lingering throat soreness and a tickly cough that keeps me up in the night, I am feeling a bit better each day. I’d say I am about 80% healed.

Last night as I watched American Idol draw out two long hours of results, I had some time to do some thinking.

IMG_1905

Remember last summer when I made Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas? Covering a banana in chocolate and then snapping a picture of it proved to be a bit awkward for all parties involved.
