Slow-Cooked Tex-Mex Chicken and Beans


I keep hoping that as I go to the gym regularly, exercise will feel easier and easier.  I went to the gym after work today, and I was worthless by the end of my class.



I am going to think I was so lethargic because I was hungry.  By the end of the class, I stopped performing the circuit well before the bell to rest.  Oh well, some days I just don't feel up to par.

Hummingbird Cake


My birthday is in March.  Making my birthday cake is a pleasure.  I start thinking about it a couple of months in advance.


I naturally prefer chocolate desserts, but this year and last year, I changed it up a bit.  Last year I made carrot cake cupcakes, and this year I made a hummingbird cake.  Yum!

Tuna Casarole


It is starting to feel a bit like spring around here.  The weather is warming up.  Because of the time change,  it is light out for a few hours after I finish work.


Spring is lovely.  I expect to see flowers and blossoms soon.  I can't complain of a long cold winter, but I appreciate spring nonetheless.

Samoa Pancakes


I'm posting another pancake recipe.  I'm in a pancake state of mind.  I recently posted about chocolate turtle pancakes, chocolate cherry pancakes, and red velvet pancakes.


I recently posted a Samoa brownie recipe as well.  A couple of years ago, I posted a recipe for a Samoa pie.  The pie didn't turn out that well actually.  The chocolate filling didn't set up well.  I might need to give it another go in the future.

Samoa Brownies


We finally got some snow this year.  There was a little snow flurry earlier in the year, but there was no accumulation.  Last Monday night and early Tuesday morning it was a certifiable snow storm.


Work wasn't canceled, but I had a three hour delay.  I slept in, did some laundry, and even cleaned the bathroom.  Most of my coworkers worked from home that day, and the office was as quite as a tomb.

Chocolate Turtle Pancakes


During Christmas a coworker was selling nuts and chocolates on behalf of his son.  I believe his son was raising money for band.


I have a very kind and giving heart, so I bought some chocolate turtles.  I have a soft spot for turtles.  I enjoy caramel, nuts, and chocolate.  The ones I bought were made with pecans, which is my favorite nut.
