50th Post!

It's my 50th post today!


I kinda can't believe that.

This calls for a celebration.


Who doesn't love pie?
Technically, I baked this for Kyle, but I'm the only one that's eaten any of it. >.<

Comfort Food = Important.

Comfort food and I go hand in hand. Especially during the cold seasons. There's nothing like curling up on the couch with a good book and a bowl of hot soup.

Except that I never tried to make soup before. 

Until now, that is.

Chicken noodle is my personal favorite.

Tomato with a grilled cheese is a close second.

Food Twister.

When I was younger, I got toted around. A lot.

I know, it's pretty typical for the kid to get toted places. You know, when we have no say in things. The good ol' days for the parents.

I specifically remember getting toted to the mall when my mom wanted to shop for old lady clothes. I was always restless. I've never been able to really simmer down. I get bored easily.

So everytime we went to the mall, I ended up with either a slice of amazing pizza or an awesome soft pretzel. And you know what? The love of soft pretzels has never left me. Ever.

I prefer making them as pretzel nugs, but I just had to try the actual pretzel shape.

I suck at it, by the way.

Also, I reached a huge plateau in my bread baking. I totally bought a jar of yeast instead of using packets.

I'm BACK! With brittle!

Oh my God, I can't believe how long it's been since I've been able to post via laptop.


And I wanted to post the awesome peanut brittle I made for the dad-in-law. Because he's speshul.

Yes. I meant to spell it like that.

And I only have 5 pictures of this. So you get no starter picture...

Just the information that this stuff can cause some serious damage to your teeth. But it's totally worth it.

Stuck In The Shadows

So, I've been gone from this blog for quite a while. And I promise, there's good reason behind this.

1. I've dropped, threw, and got my phone wet too many times. It no longer connects to WiFi. I'm posting this from the husband's phone.

2. Our laptop charger bit the bullet, so we need to get a new one. And MacBook chargers? They aren't cheap.

But you're really not missing much. I've been doing a ton of duplicates. I DO have a recipe for peanut brittle I'll have up as soon as I get a chance.

For those who read/follow,thank you and please bear with me.
