Chicken Tortilla Roll-Ups

May 17, 2012 in chicken, Sandwiches - No Comments

My teaching partner went on maternity leave a month back, and I’ve been covering her classes for a bit.  All that to say that I have been working full-time for three weeks now and am spent.  I knew it wasn’t going to be easy to balance work and home life, but…

Luscious Lemon Dessert

April 30, 2012 in bars, Chilled Desserts - 10 Comments

My junior year in college, my roommate and I thought it’d be fun to have a tea party.  We made cute little sandwiches, where we cut them in small triangle wedges and trimmed the crust, had different fruit bars, and of course, a variety of teas.  Our friends came over…

Mint Chocolate Cookie Pudding

St. Patrick’s Day is almost here.  Normally all I do to celebrate is wear a little green and make some green dessert, but with a toddler, I am thinking about making some sort of craft with him.  I like to joke to my friends and students that I am Irish, because…

Black Bottom Brownies

March 2, 2012 in brownies - 4 Comments

My good friend Carri-Anne had a baby girl a few weeks back.  (You can read about her baby shower here.)  Today, she and baby girl came over for lunch.  But before they did, Matthew thought he’d make something sweet and kind for them.  He ultimately settled on these brownies, which…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Surprise

I love cream cheese.  No really.  I love cream cheese.  And as my high school students would tell me, I’m sure I’d marry it if I could.  (Yup, not just elementary students use that silly phrase.)  I have yet to find a dessert with cream cheese in it that I haven’t…

I love traditions.  And one thing I really like about starting my own family is continuing the traditions that both our families have as well as creating new ones.  My wonderful old roommate, Katie, introduced me to this recipe eight years ago, when we were first teaching.  (It was both of our first “real”…

Orange Cream Cheese Dip

My son likes sugar.  And cats.  I feel for my two 7-year-old tuxedo cats, because while all my son wants to do is give them some love, it appears that he’s beating on them.  (It’s hard to teach young children to be gentle to pets!)  Usually he follows them around and…

Dirt Cake [Halloween Style]

October 21, 2011 in Chilled Desserts - 4 Comments

The very first time I had dirt cake was when I was in elementary school and my aunt prepared it in a flower pot, complete with a plastic flower and gummy worms.  I didn’t believe her when she told me it was a dessert.  (The dirt looked so real!)  Since then,…
