Almond Butter Rice Crisp Treats

IMG_7922

  Growing up, I used to be a professional Rice Crispy Treat baker. I’d dump butter in a pot, add a bag of marshmallows, rice crisp, and vanilla. Spread into a pan. Stuff in face. Totally gourmet. Sticky, sweet, crunchy…and easy enough for a child to make. I still remember sticking the gooey cereal covered […]

I wait all year long for local strawberries to make their brief appearance and when I finally see them at the market and in the grocery stores I tend to go a bit crazy. I hoard them. I freeze them. I go to Strawberry festivals. I make Strawberry Banana Soft Serve. I make Strawberry Shortcake […]

March 23, 2010 (FL vacation) March 23, 2011 (Southern Ontario) If you woke up to snow this morning, I feel your pain! That is a tough pill to swallow. If you squint your eyes really small, you can see the beach and sunshine. I’m lounging with a margarita off in the distance! Cool, huh? And […]

Pumpkin Pie Monster. Zucchini Bread oatmeal. Oatmeal Cookie VOO. Pumpkin Pie VOO. Pecan Pie ‘Truffles’. You might call this weird, but I call it totally normal…as […]

I loved reading your comments on yesterday’s Classic Green Monster post. Finally, I do not feel so alone.
