Topic-Changing Thursdays: Dear Fudgelet, Part 9

Dear Fudgelet,

I somehow missed writing directly to you last year. The last time I wrote, you were getting ready for kindergarten. Well, we all know how that school year ended…and then first grade was fully remote at home. It has been quite a year (or two, I guess now). We have made use of our extra time at home by doing playtime with the Chiplet, exploring our neighborhood, and mastering new skills like riding your bike and scooter, playing soccer, and working on academics. You have been so amazing through all of this. To keep things “real,” yes, we had some problems, but we are going to always have some rough waters in life, and I don’t think us being home together was what made it rough. I was grateful to get that time with you, since the Chiplet and I had already been missing you when you would be at school, so it was nice to get a little bonus time.

Mixed-Bag Mondays: Sweet and Salty

Another “eh” pair of dishes, one salty, and one sweet. Neither one is particularly terrible, but I won’t be remaking them. The worst part about the sweet one? I am not positive which recipe it was…so there is a chance that I will accidentally make it again. Eep. I hope not! I would rather make a new recipe then remake one that was just “meh”.

Friday Favorites 35

Today I wanted to share some different favorites than what I have been. I have actually been using and reading lots of cookbooks and magazines recently and felt like sharing some favorites. Now, I obviously can’t vouch for all recipes in these sources, but you can certainly play around like I do, too. With cooking so many meals these days, I know some people prefer having a set list of recipes they make over and over again, but I prefer finding new ones. Even if the recipes are just variants of ones I already do, they still get me excited for a new set of meal plans.

Hello! I realized I hadn’t hopped on here to share much news lately. Of course, there isn’t much going on lately, anyway. The days are pretty similar with everyone being home.

Fudgelet and Chiplet Adventures (part 9): Welcome to 2021, Goodbye 2020

To welcome in the new year, I wanted to share some pictures from our end of 2020. Obviously so many of us are ready to be done with many things from last year, but I know that most of the bad stuff isn’t going to end with the calendar. If only it could work that way. I wish that we had set dates to know when some stuff will get better, when we will be able to see our families again, etc. Even though there are some bad things, there were some good moments for us.

Tips-y Tuesdays: General Gift Ideas

Maybe you are still looking for some gift ideas, but you know you are running low on time. Well, I have a few kitchen items that you might not have thought of, or might not have realized are so handy. Now, unlike some other internet people, I am not sharing links to specific items. Instead, I am just listing ideas since I can’t say that I have the best of each item to share with you.
