Sweet Tooth Sunday

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, plus more for the pan
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 large peanut butter cups, cut into pieces

Heat oven to 400° F.

Melt the butter and chocolate in a pan over low heat.

Using a mixer, beat the eggs and sugar until pale yellow and fluffy. Lower speed and pour in the melted chocolate and vanilla. Mix in the flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Fold in the peanut butter cups.

Silly Saturday

I don't know Jill and Kevin, but I wish I could have went to their wedding!

Thursday, July 23, 2009


My beautiful friend Misty has an awesome blog, Queen of My House, and she's hosting her first GIVEAWAY!

If you follow her, you are eligible to win a 16 x 20 poster print of a picture of your choice. Hurry, because its only open until Sunday the 26th!

If I win, I'd chose this picture from our wedding. (I know I just posted this picture on our anniversary on down the page, but the rules are you have to post the picture you want.) As I've been decorating our new house, I noticed that the largest picture I have from that day is an 8 x 10. So I'd love to have a bigger one to put up. (Plus, look how skinny we both were!haha)

So go NOW, and follow Misty. She plans on doing more giveaways, so if you don't win this one, you might get another.

Useful Thursday

Use old calendar pages as gift wrap.

Plastic drinking straws will core your strawberries. Remove the leaves, and then push the straw from the top of the berry through to the bottom.

Use bright mismatches dishtowels as place mats.

A toothbrush can get rid of stray corn silk on ears of corn

Use cookie cutters to help decorate cakes. Lay cookie cutters on top of cake and sprinkle the decorative topping of choice within the cookie cutter, like a stencil.

I took a voluntary break from blogging. No worries, I've kept busy: vacations, summer fun, school work, potty training, grandparent visits....always something happening here.

But now I'm back! And I'm dedicating myself keeping my daily blogs updated. I just need a suggestion for Tuesdays....
