So I thought I was cool?

So, I thought I was cool with the few sites I listed below. I am so not cool. Lolly is making PIE in a JAR!!!
You know why this happened, right?? It's because I gave all my jars to my mother (cough cough, three years ago) and they sat in her basement right,, ya, so now they've found a place for them and things to do with them and BAM! look at what I could have done!!!

PIE Link to Lolly

and I am loving

Our Best Bites

Who worked with Lolly, I am sure like the fantastic pie making 4 and made all this super cool stuff that I look at and think I can make all the time, but I am so gonna make these and put them in my mom's freezer for her hotel guests during Thanksgiving :D

and if I were 5 I would say"Dear God, thank you for pie in a jar" (and this recipe) (and maybe this one too) and ma and pa, and John boy.

Disclaimer, I heard this joke on the radio and it was horrible, and off color and some may call it flat out mean and just too soon but I can't help it, it makes me laugh every time I think of it.

Did you hear that Patrick Swayze was going to be a guest on the view all week? The only thing is, Whoopie will be the only one that can see him.

Ba dum bump!
Seriously, he would laugh at that one too..

Hey there! Tupperware....

So I decided I was going to make some money and sell some Tupperware before Christmas so I could get super gifts, some of which will be funded by Tupperware, some will be funded AS Tupperware.Click the picture -- that's my website!
Tupperware has an empanada maker in their current flyer, so today I've been looking for recipes so I can showcase it. My thought is, you don't really need this machine from a lot of these recipes and as I've been taught you can pinch the edges with a fork just the same but I have this really cool tool, so why would I NOT try it..
like these.


Squidoo's got a few.. million

Pie master gives descriptions of everything they are called!!!

Breakfast Empe's

Weight watchers version

Food Network calls them Turnovers

Cherry cookie turnovers (I made these with banana and nutella)

and the be all end all of sites is the big DownUnder turnover recipes

now the best

loook at this pie!! I love it !!!

You say Banana, I say banana

Recently we've been teething, not the easy teething that happens at 6 months, but the big bad teeth that come in on the sides and make your head hurt and make you pull your hands to your face, and tug your ears from the pain in your jaw. So, there are a few things that Miss T is eating these days, won't have chicken, won't have veggies, only eating some fruits. These are the favorite things and she does not want any of them. Hmmm.. I have to find something to keep her energy level up during all of this, don't take away the real food, but give her a few little things between meal times as "snacks" to keep her protein up, calcium is a must but she's getting that I am sure so, I do the horrible thing some parents do and give her flavored milk.
But I found this tonight:



  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 dash ground cinnamon


  1. Place the first four ingredients in a blender; cover and process until smooth. Pour into glasses; sprinkle with cinnamon if desired. Serve immediately.
Simple enough, I am sure. I am going to try this out. Way less sugar than the Nestle Banana milk. Did I mention she hates strawberry milk, and on occasion will drink the chocolate.

just a little something that we like, and can't seem to find.
