What’s In Your Kitchen Wednesday

Before we get started with the link party this week, I need some mom sympathy.  Please?

It all started when Doodle came home from school on Monday with his pants and shoes dirtier than usual.  When I asked what happened, he informed me that he spent the entirety of recess digging in the dirt for his friend Carol’s lost necklace.  Apparently, they were playing “hide and sneak” and Carol hid her necklace under some dirt and…the necklace is now lost.

Next, Doodle told me that he invited Carol over to our house for spring break because he wanted to do “something nice to cheer her up” since she was so sad about her lost necklace.  I said that sounded like a great thing to do and that I would call Carol’s mom to arrange a play date.

Then I reconsidered, when Doodle said he was “in love” with Carol and he thought that she was “in love” with him, too.

Um, at five, isn’t my kiddo still supposed to want to marry his mom?  What’s up with this “in love” business?  I’m having heart palpitations.  Holy cow guys, this calls for some serious sugar and other yummy food.  Let’s get to the features!

This week’s top viewed post was from Confessions of a Baking Queen.  Her Lemon Blossoms look so bright and spring-y.  I’m definitely ready for a batch of these after finally digging out of our snow storm!


I’m a sucker for Thin Mint anything.  These Thin Mint Fudge Brownies from Inside BruCrew Life start with a gooey brownie bottom with a mint fudge on top sprinkled with crushed cookies pieces.  I’ll take three please, Jocelyn!


We’re all about quick and easy meals at my house right now, so these Spicy Chicken and Bacon Sandwiches with Cilantro Buttermilk Slaw from Crumbs and Chaos are on my menu plan next week. The Tall Boy can’t wait. 🙂


How awesome and gooey do these Easy Rocky Road Bars from Jen’s Favorite Cookies look? Pretty darn great if you ask me.


Oh my word, how beautiful is this Flourless Chocolate Fudge Truffle Cake from Butter, With a Slice of Bread? It’s almost too pretty to eat. I think I could probably manage it, though.


Thank you all so much for coming back each week to make this party a great success!  I love seeing all of your great creations, and it’s such an awesome way for me to find new blogs to stalk read.

    The girls at Jordan’s school all talk about who they like. Except Jordan. She hasn’t said. I don’t know if she’s embarrassed or just hasn’t gotten there yet. So young!!! Thanks for the party!

    Oh my, it starts at 5?! My Little Man is 4, and everything I hear from school is still girls versus boys – I thought I had more time?!! Sweet treats definitely sound like the perfect therapy. 😉 So, I’m sharing some Irish Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with Spice Infused Buttercream Frosting. Looks like I may be making a lot more of these in months to come, if Little Man follows suit . . .

    Thanks for hosting!!

    1. Thank you so much for hosting this party! What great links 🙂
    2. I accidentally linked to a non-recipe (setting up a writer’s space.) I’m so sorry. I can’t figure out how to remove it. Maybe you can from your end?
    3. When my daughter was in the first grade, she had two boyfriends and thought it was great. One was for recess and one was for after school. I’m not kidding. No amount of talking to her got through. Six-year-olds are too little for social convention, I guess! The recess boyfriend moved away, so at least she stopped telling everyone she met about her two guys.

    Thanks for hosting again Ashley! Hope you convince your son to ditch Carol and stay in love with you. I have two boys too and I never want them to stop loving me the most! 🙂

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
