Mixed-Bag Mondays: Just Okay

As a heads up, this is likely the only post this week. We have a lot going on, so if I don’t get back on here, happy early Thanksgiving to my fellow American friends!

Wayback Wednesdays: Milk Bar Brownie Pie

After making the liquid cheesecake again, I finally used the remnants of it to make this pie. And once again, this was me remaking a recipe from years ago.

It’s fairly easy compared to most of the Milk Bar recipes, but my brain was being a bit slow, so I got confused. I barely had enough graham cracker crumbs to make the crust, mostly because I didn’t realize I needed some for the rest of the pie. But, it turned out fine, anyway.

Mixed-Bag Mondays: Mostly Hits

I am always happy when recipes turn out well, but sometimes they are still not worth remaking, or I know I just am not likely to remake them. Today, I am sharing some of those.

Fudgelet and Chiplet Adventures (part 6): More Outside Fun

The weather has been pretty crazy here lately. We have had some great weather days, some hot and muggy days, some rainy days, and everything in between. But we have still managed to get outside most of the days, even if it is just for a bit. I have been trying to mix up our activities so that we aren’t always doing the same things outside. So, some days I ask the Chiplet first what he wants, and other times the Fudgelet. The first activity chosen usually dictates front yard or back yard, and then the other kid can pick from that location. Other days I have been planning small activities, maybe bringing out something we haven’t done for a bit, just to keep things interesting.

Mixed-Bag Mondays: Sweet and Savory

I haven’t shared a hits and misses for awhile. And when I say “hits” I would say these are “okays” and “mehs” that I made in the winter. Let’s start with a meal that could be fine but it was a bit too salty for me.
