Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Rice Krispie Treats

  I don't know what came over me. I had an idea recently to make a new kind of rice krispie treat. I have no idea if other people have tried this before... but I know that we'll be making it again. These are a little more complicated than your typical rice krispie treats, but they are in a whole other league. And I have a feeling that … [Read More...]

The Non Importance of Being Liked and Things Being Fair

This picture is one that I took of my nieces on Easter 2 years ago. It has nothing to do with Jodi's post except that I can imagine my niece saying "It's not fair!"

  Please welcome my good friend, Jodi, who is guest posting today. Jodi is the mother of Michael, the blogger behind Jodifur.com, and a fellow DC-area resident (which means I get to bump in to her every once in a while...or catch a day-time, just-for-fun movie together). It used to really matter to me that people “like” me. Much … [Read More...]
