Ridiculously Easy Mini Cherry Pies

Ridiculously easy mini cherry pies!

I had a roll of refrigerated pie dough left over from my Disney inspired churro cookies. I decided the only way to go was to try my hand at some mini cherry pies. Some really, really easy cherry pies. As in pre-made dough and store bought filling easy. You know I love to skip steps in the kitchen.I started by using a circle cookie cutter on the pie crust. Now is where I politely ask you to ignore those sticks. I planned to make cherry pie lollipops but that didn't pan out. Removing the sticks equaled Pinterest fail avoidance. Careful cutting means you can get a fair amount of circles from your crust. If you're feeling adventurous, take the scraps and roll them out and cut those, too. Instead of adventurous, I was feeling lazy. I just tossed my scraps in the trash. To those crust circles I added a small spoon of cherry pie filling. Yep...from a can. Totally skipped the "from scratch" on this. Just because you can bake from scratch doesn't mean you have to bake from scratch. Top with … [Continue]

Boneless Buffalo Wing Dip with Pretzels…from Leftovers

Boneless Buffalo Wing Dip Recipe and trivia night idea inspired by #BuffaloWingsAndRings #ad

#BuffaloWingsAndRings #CollectiveBiasBefore I headed off of my mini work/vacation with my family, I treated some friends to a fun dinner out at Buffalo Wings & Rings. It was Cinco de Mayo and I think all Americans are contractually obligated to head out that night. I'm not sure what the penalty for staying home is, but I wasn't willing to risk it. We grabbed a few margaritas because...Cinco de Mayo. But we also tried out their new ballpark inspired menu. It's for a limited time and we did not want to miss out. We started out with the Ballpark Pretzel Bites, which come served with queso. They're similar to pretzel bread, in toasted bite form. So good. Now I'm going to confess my fear of the Jack'd Up Wings. Thai chili and sea salt caramel wings served over caramel corn? I was curious but I wasn't going to order it. Luckily Stephen did and he let me give them a try. Oh. My. Gosh. They're amazing. Seriously. Don't be scared...give them a try. We finished off our meal with … [Continue]

Hardwood Updates: Rip Out That Carpet

Hardwood Floors

When I built my house I had lots of hard choices to make. What kind of cabinets do I want? How many different colors can one house be painted? Budget was a factor. Some choices were based on what I could afford, not on what was my top choice. Now it's years later and I'm ripping out as many of those second...or third...or fourth choices as I can. Starting with the carpet. Every year my allergies get a little worse, so hardwoods were a no-brainer. I saved my money and shopped for a good deal … [Continue]

Irish Spring Sugar Scrub and Soap Puff

Easy DIY Irish Spring Sugar Scrub and Soap Puff #MySignatureMove #ad

#MySignatureMove #CollectiveBias  Years ago I was at a restaurant with some friends. They had sugar scrub by the sinks in all of their restrooms. While the girls proceeded to ooooh and ahhhh over the sugar scrub, the guys were totally underwhelmed. That's when I knew the days of the metrosexual were over. Goodbye, well coiffed men. Hello, lumberjacks. Now don't get me wrong. The lumbersexual has his place. Depending on the level of grooming, I can approve this trend. Showers, however, are … [Continue]

Spicy Stuffed Mushrooms

Well, they're mine and anyone who's willing to risk the heat. They're mouth on fire mushrooms. So, you know, you've been warned! This recipe is similar to my stuffing stuffed mushrooms … [Continue]

MING-NA WEN, CLARK GREGG

Talking Age of Ultron with James Spader and Paul Bettany

Paul and James 2

While some of my friends were freaking out about our meeting with Chris 1 and Chris 2 during the Avengers: Age of Ultron press day, a dedicated and devoted following were freaking out about James Spader. The man is a legend. And his voice. And Paul Bettany's voice. Hearing him talk was like having your own J.A.R.V.I.S. in the room. Seriously...both of them could just sit around reading the phone book all day long. If they recorded it, I'd buy it. I'd download their podcast. As you can see … [Continue]
