Sweet Side

I know this isn't technically "baking" but this coleslaw is so sweet it belongs on a blog called "Sweet Rewards". Now, I am not a big fan of coleslaw in general. Every once in a while, when there is bar-B-Q around, I will have a little bit but I can say with certainty that I never crave the taste of it. Besides the taste, there are the calories, it's pretty high on the list of no-no's for dieters. HOWEVER...this tasty recipe from (photo provided by has changed all of that for me. First of all, it's sweet and secondly it's lower in calories comparatively. It's so simple, bring it to your next family get-together and even the complacent coleslaw customer will compliment your culinary capabilities!

1.5 cups of pre-shredded cabbage and carrots (found in your produce section by the bagged salads)
1/4 cup of pineapple tidbits
1/4 cup of honey roasted peanuts (chopped)
2 tbsp of low-fat vanilla yogurt
2 tbsp of light mayonnaise

mix yogurt and mayo together in a bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and mix until well coated. Keep refrigerated.

Making Whoopie


I thought it was an appropriate cookie for Valentine's Day.
You know, cuz it's red ;)

Another recipe from the fabulous Bakerella!
The Red Velvet Sandwich Cookie, sweet and easy.
There's just one question...

...what do I do with the left over cream cheese frosting?
I'll figure it out :)

Sharing is Good...

...and I just think this blog needs to be shared with the world. I was checking out some of the blogs that were nominated for the "Bloggies" awards to see what was so special about them. Some of them were absolutely beautiful. The photos were professional grade and the writing was superb. It put mine to shame and I came to the conclusion that I will probably never have an award winning blog when compared to those. Seriously, it's like it is their full-time job to put these things together and the time and effort it takes to make something worth reading on a regular basis is more than I have available right now. So, while I was investigating the nominees I came upon a blog called "Cake Wrecks". I sat there and scrolled through the utter disasters that people called cakes and laughed so hard I cried. I mean, tears were rolling down my eyes and I thought, "This is a blog worth following!" Check it out, maybe you'll be glad you did. I must warn you, however, that sometimes things can get a little gross, like this post on foot cakes.....but still very funny :)
