A Dolla Makes Me Holla Honey Boo Boo Child

That’s So Jacob

There’s a magical, wonderful place that exists in almost every town that is capable of making dreams come true. It’s not Target, or Starbucks…it’s…

THE DOLLAR STORE.

I was just hanging around this afternoon, and I realized that I needed something. I can’t remember what it was, but I had this crazy idea that maybe, just maybe, the dollar store might have it for a decent price. (…)

So, I went to the Dollar Tree over in Middleton, and I must not have been in a dollar store for a long time, because I completely forgot…they have everything there. And it’s all just a dollar. Or less! They have 89-cent candy bars, the regular sized ones and not the gas station/Walgreens/airport steroid-jumbo sizes! And before you say anything, yeah, I know that a ton of the stuff in the dollar store is crap, but if you bought it, well…

Cherry Coffee Cake

A New Neapolitan

Unlike most coffee cakes that come with a side of insulin, this coffee cake is sweet enough to be called cake and healthy enough to be considered a breakfast treat.  Of course this isn’t as healthy as a bowl of oatmeal (in my case, it might actually be though…), but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying a slice of cake with your morning coffee!

After a lot of failed attempts, I am happy to say that this cake was worth the time (and ingredients) spent.  I decided to use half whole wheat flour for added fiber, but not too much to make the cake dry and dense.  I also decided to cut out all of the butter and the crumb topping that is usually found on top of coffee cakes and replaced them with healthier alternatives; a mix of coconut oil and greek yogurt for the fat, and fresh fruit…

Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

One Page At A Time

DSC_0013-2-500x500

There have been many times when I wanted to bake but I didn’t know what I wanted to bake. Whenever this happens, I always decide to make chocolate chip cookies. However, I have yet to find, and save, a good recipe. If the cookies didn’t become hard and crunchy shortly after cooling, I would lose the recipe. It seemed like I couldn’t keep a good chocolate chip cookie recipe. All of this changed when I found this one. Before I made these cookies, I expected the same outcome. I don’t think I was ever this happy to be wrong. They were yummy AND soft!
