This recipe is actually not my own and has been passed around many times, but I thought the idea was too fun not to share. Pulse one package of Oreos in a food processor until its nothing but a pile of Oreo dirt, as my son calls it. Next, add one block of cream cheese and pulse everything together until it just starts to come together, forming a dough. If you dont have a food processor, you can...

This last week I've been having a problem with my computer and it's a pain in the butt. It's the keyboard. About half the time I hit delete, the key sticks and suddenly I've deleted a bunch of letters, sometimes a full sentence. Then I have to go hit undo, undo, undo
I'm going to try clean it, see if that makes a difference. But if not, I'll have to get a new keyboard. This computer is ...

I'm glad I didn't realizeInto the Woods was a musical before I went to watch it, because I don't always like musicals. One of the few previous exceptions isLes Miserables.

Courage in the Kitchen
When we kids were at home, Mom made dough gods almost every time she made bread. We devoured them hot from the pan coated with sugar and cinnamon. We thought they were better than doughnuts.

The Book Bag
After reading "Destiny of the Republic" by Candice Millard, I think I want a refund on my history classes. There is so much more to learn about James Garfield, our 20th president, than I would ever have guessed.

Father Knows Last
Its January 17th, a Saturday, and my alarm wakes me at 6AM. I get dressed and go downstairs to let the dogs out and am greeted by a blizzard; theres heavy snow and a howling Northwest wind is severely reducing visibility.
