Listen to the Music

Hey y'all.  I love the word y'all and I'm not even from the south.  I wish I could work it into my everyday vocabulary but somehow around here that might not be received well....

But oh well, that really has absolutely nothing to do with this post!

I'm writing to talk a bit about music.  I love music!!  Like totally L-O-V-E music!  Good thing I married a musician right!?!

But again....none of that really has much to do with this post!

Okay so what is this post about?

It's about, for those of you who noticed or care, the fact that my music player is gone.  For some of you, you may have never even listened to it and for others I know you enjoyed it very much!  I like having a player, I always pick a song where the feeling of it or the words match with what I'm writing.  It sets the mood and well I just love music okay!?!?  (I worked that back in, trying for unity here!)

But I'm having problems right now with my music player and so the question is...

How many of you enjoy or do not enjoy the music on my blog?

Do you even listen to it?  Have you ever noticed how it sets the mood?  Or is it a bother, do you pause it before it begins?

The reason I'm asking is that if I can't get the one I have to work again, I will try to find another...but that's only if the people want it!  So do you, my people, want it?

Leave a comment and let me know!  For those of you who read but don't have a google account, select the Anonymous option or the Name/URL option (you can leave the URL field blank) 

So go ahead, tell me, I'd love to know what y'all think!

Ridiculousness

Okay, so I have been doing some baking.  Both my friend and my mom had birthday's this past week.  For my friend we hosted a little get together and jam session.  So I baked...I mean isn't that what people do - get together and eat!?!? 

*sigh*

So I went looking for something and well I found the most ridiculous recipe...I mean seriously, who sits around and thinks up these things?

Actually I mean, thank you, who ever you are, for sitting around and thinking up these things!





Those look like innocent enough cookies, don't they......



....but wait until you bit into them!





SURPRISE!!!


So, yes that is an Oreo stuffed inside a chocolate chip cookie...a double stuffed Oreo at that!!!

No, really!

It is! 

And it's quite tasty too! ;)

It's really not that hard to make and I'd post the recipe but truth is - I hate...really H. A. T. E. writing out recipes.  Sooo, google it and in all actuality, it's really just a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe surrounding an Oreo.  But Oh, my, ridiculousness indulgence...so remember...eating one cookie is really like eating three!


Moving along.


A year ago my mom and I were in a bulk food store when she spotted a box for a teddy bear cake mould and went on to tell me how she would love a cake like that!  Really an all fancy, cutesy teddy bear cake.  So I complied and for her birthday this year created for her a teddy bear cake.

The challenge was hard enough in making it but add to that the fact that she is glutton and dairy intolerant!  I found a cake mix that was glutton free but called for dairy.  So I scoured the Internet and discovered that you can substitute coffee for dairy in chocolate cakes. 


I like coffee and I like cake!  



This is good!



The result; a lovely and delicious gluten and dairy free teddy bear cake!  Happy Birthday Mom! :)




And well to complete our weekend of ridiculousness in baking and eating we were out and decided to buy the kids each a cookie. 



A really big cookie.



Big as their little faces, big!







So it was a ridiculous weekend...but ridiculously GOOD!
