Tasty Bits

I have been at this blogging business for seven years, this month. Yipes! What a lotta stuff I just had to say. And then today I had nothing. I spent all day knitting obsessively (is there any other way?) on a 'just gotta try this' project that I may never wear. We'll see. So when it comes to doing the blog this morning, I got nuttin'.
I had planned to make these Snicker Caramel Cheesecake cookies and share the flavor variation that I decided was better. I didn't get off my butt, but the variation is this: delete the caramel in the cheesecake batter and substitute either Nutella or  Dark Chocolate Almond spread
     Maranatha Natural Foods 39672 Dark Chocolate Almond Spreadand top with sliced almonds. It uses muffin top pans which I actually own, which is the #1 reason I wanted to do this recipe. #2 the jars of evil chocolaty stuff in my cabinet. But actually,  with all the half priced Halloween candy I bought the day after Halloween, I am kinda sick of chocolate for a while.
And then....
In my email this morning, my dear blogging friend, organic gardener, artist and author, The Empress of Dirt has announced the completion of her Ebook on Fabric Dyeing 101: Simple Instructions For Beautiful Fabrics For Those Who Wish To Be Both Frugal and Gentle On The Earth            
Fabric Dyeing 101: Simple Instructions For Beautiful Fabrics For Those Who Wish To Be Both Frugal and Gentle On The Earth I dropped by the Empire to read all about it and I highly recommend you visit too, as she is 'all that' when it comes to writing. I am a mere dilettante and bad speller compared to her. Her back story is so inspiring and makes me wanna get off my butt and do something grand and long lasting.
Like the laundry.

  1. Wow does this have two sides of the coin. Things I love and things I hate.
    Loving Nutella-hating snakes but the sign is very funny.

    Ove your personal decorator!!
    Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. For having nothing to write about, you sure did give me a giggle. Thanks! :)

    You better get back to the chocolate as you need to focus.... you are all over the place this morning and it is a HOOT !

    Back to T-day prep...as in veggies....

  4. At last, someone found my rattle snake. He's been missing or years! Wonder if he knows where my racoon coat is.

  5. You may think you're not a good writer because you are thinking in strictly grammatical and spelling terms which I don't think you're so bad by the way. You are, however, very entertaining, and that is most important!
    Thanks for the dyeing blog link. I've checked it out for the first time and I think I'll buy the ebook.

  6. What are you supposed to put on your pets? We have rattlers here, too...
    Thanks for the chuckles!

  7. HA!!!! Bitey is making the rounds! Love it! Happy Turkey Day, Mel!
