Samoa Cupcakes

Spring is such a tease.  A few weeks ago, it seemed as if we had finally kicked old man winter’s butt, but it was all an oh-so cruel hoax.  And now we’ve had snow for like the past three or maybe even four nights.  It’s ridiculous. As the winter weather continues, so does the baking. … Continue reading

Four Mile Ridge Wilderness Lodge Cookies

I love wilderness living.  The forest around our house is a never-ending source of inspiration, peace and sanity for me. And although I love to visit the city, especially NYC, for girls’ trips and to see a show and have a fancy dinner, I just know I could never live in the city. I need … Continue reading

Four Mile Ridge: Super Bowl 50 Edition

Football = Food. I mean I was here.  I saw the Ravens play the Steelers.  I hated waiting in line for the subway. I hated staying up late, and I really hated when I was exhausted, yawning and the game went into overtime.  I was like WAAAAAA, but the pork tenderloin with slaw and sweet … Continue reading

Please say a prayer for my dear friend, Kristina and her daughter, Paige.  Paige has a serious health issue and is going in for her third surgery in a two week period (for a total of 15 or 16).  She’s in kindergarten and has missed so much, and Kristina just registered to go back to … Continue reading

Homemade Peanut Butter Ice Cream and Dark Chocolate Fudge Sauce

Ole Man Winter did one heckuva number dumping about 2 feet of snow, and it came down quickly!  It took Sid a lot longer to get the road open (blower chain broke) than we thought, but with a lot of patience and persistence, he finally got ‘er done! Dad fed the deer and turkeys some … Continue reading

Enjoyment was had this three-day weekend, in spite of sadness in our community.  I baked.  Made some epic messes.  Hung with my Doodle.  Had a play date with J Ritch and Grace B at the Bounce House Place.  Went to Tough Man. It’s been a long time since we had a babysitter, like months.  And … Continue reading
