I love people who can laugh at themselves and take an occasion that gives so many of us the heebie-jeebies (turning 40!) and take it head on with grace and humor.  That is why I love this fun, witting “Mid-Life Crisis” casino style 40th birthday party from Debbie at Wants and Wishes. When planning her 40th birthday party she wanted to embrace the mini midlife crisis she joked about having.

Candy A to Z: N is for Nerds!

That’s right, it’s Candy A to Z day again! And today’s letter is N – which means it must be for Nerds. Nerds have been one of my favorite candies since early childhood.  The sweet and sour little candy bits are so satisfying as a snack, or sweet afternoon treat, or Movie Theater snack, or as an ingredient in lots and lots of recipes. To celebrate N is for Nerds.

Wishing Everyone a Very Merry Christmas!

Jelly Bean Wine Bar – Event (Idea) of the Week!

Jelly Bean Wine Bar – Event (Idea) of the Week!

So I was listening to talk radio while riding in the car with my Dad (isn’t it a law that all Dads over the age of 50 listen exclusively to talk radio?) and this story came on about something really cool that Wine X Magazine put together. The wine experts at Wine X Magazine have come up with a really cool concept – finding jelly beans that match or complement.

Candy A to Z: M is for M&Ms (Duh?!)

http://www.sweetcitycandy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/MMs.jpgCandy A to Z: M is for M&Ms (Duh?!)

What else would M be for, am I right? I mean, sure there are other candies that begin with the letter M, but come on. Nothing compares. Have you ever seen a child have and M&M for the first time? I remember when my son, who is now 4, had his first M&M about 1.5 years ago (don’t hate, I gave my kids chocolate pretty early) and ever since he’s.

Triple Peanut Butter Monster Cookie Bars from @AverieCooks are the BEST!

I am a huge fan of “everything but the kitchen sink” type recipes. They allow you to do a pantry cleanse and get rid of all those half and quarter bags of nuts, pretzels, chips and candy that you’re afraid you’re just going to binge eat on a lonely Friday night (sob!) but you really REALLY want to use them in a yummy treat. We have the answer for you!.

Here’s something funny. I was reading through the posts from the past few weeks and I realized that I did my alphabet for Candy A to Z out of order. I put “K for Kit Kat” ahead of “J for Jawbreakers”. Now is when I put on my dunce cap and sit in the corner for a half hour thinking about what a dummy I am.   We hear the.
