Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Pie Recipe -

Here’s what my son Brooks (RecipeBoy) baked recently (which is why I’m eating rather light this week, lol!):  PEANUT BUTTER CUP CHEESECAKE PIE!  Needless to say, this pie is good stuff.

Hippie Runner Headbands

I just ordered some of these funky headbands from  My hair looks absolutely horrible when I get all sweaty and gross while I’m working out.  So I’m hoping these will make me look cute- ha!

Best Waffles

I enjoyed reading this feature on Yahoo Food this week:  THE BEST WAFFLES ACROSS AMERICA! Sadly, I haven’t been to any of the places mentioned, but I’m going to make it my mission to hit at least a couple of them one of these days.  I love waffles!

Nature's Bakery Raspberry Fig Bars

My family is obsessed with the Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars- specifically the RASPBERRY flavor.  I order them on Amazon because they are cheaper than picking them up at the store- currently $10.58 for a dozen.

Most Popular Cookie Recipes

Here’s a slideshow for you to browse:  the MOST POPULAR COOKIE RECIPES on… all gathered in one place for you to see.  Choose one to bake this weekend!

Pajaro Dunes

I spent a few days last week in Pajaro Dunes, CA with a few of my blogging friends.  Pajaro Dunes is smack dab between Santa Cruz and Monterey- it’s a beautiful vacation spot.  We had lunch in Carmel-By-The-Sea at La Bicyclette, which was AMAZING.  If you happen to eat there someday, order the Butternut Squash Pizza!

Brooks and Tessie

And finally… this photo gives you an idea of how giant my lacrosse-loving (almost 14-year old) son is now: 6′ 2″ tall!  (This photo was taken on St. Patrick’s Day, obviously.  Oh, and you can see how much my sweet Tessie the labradoodle has grown too (5 months old now).  My babies are growing up so fast!

Have a terrific week, everyone!

    What a great post, so much to “digest”, pun intended! Thanks for all the great inspiration. If the headbands transform me into cuteness working out, well sign me up!

    The Nature’s Fig Bars are delicious. In my area, they are available in a 3 flavor pack (fig, blueberry, and raspberry) at Costco. They come in a 24 pack (8 of each flavor) and I think that the price is about $10.
