Can we just talk about how Halloween should NEVER be on a Monday?
It’s just cruel to all the kids (and parents ) out there.
The sugar crash, the insane bedtime,
the costume accoutrements found littering your
den, hall, kitchen this morning.
And my kids are <sort of > out of the childhood
Halloween - hysteria - age.
Though we still do trick or treat!
As they get older, the crazy wanes...but only a little.
And truth be told, I love it all, especially the crazy.
So, my solution, even though I'm posting a bit
late in the day (sorry) to the whole
howtodealwiththesugarhigh is to ..... ....bake.
A little hair of the dog?
So, this morning, amid the wrappers, bowls, glowsticks and
pillowcases of candy lying about,
I decided to dig right in and make brownies.
While everyone's still stuck in a sugar haze,
this was, for me, the only way to greet the day!
let me share with you some awesome spots that you might not know about.....
and how great is that......
to find cool, easy, killer dessert recipes!
First of all, THIS is the brownie recipe I used today....
found over at my good friend, Lisa's, home on the web
If you're looking for a quick, tasty dessert, Lisa and her daughter have
tried and tested pretty much anything you could dream up.
Lisa features everyday ingredients that you don't need to run out and hunt down.
They're already in your kitchen and you won't believe what she creates with them.
So go check them out here at Home to Four Kiddos!
looks super yummy, right?
I love to haunt is A Slice of Smith Life.,
the home of my friend, Tracy, who shares ideas, activities and TREATS around
liturgical year feast days and holidays.
If you're looking for a fun birthday cake or holiday sweet, head to Tracy's!
I think this campfire cake is my favorite,
but there are soooooo many from which to choose.
If you don't already follow Tracy,
now you know where to go next time you need a unique dessert!
Anything...absolutely anything at Recipe Girl!
For chocolate galore and so many more easy scrumptious ideas,
I love Lori's blog.
I'm SO happy I stumbled onto her home on the web!
I haven't tried making these cookies yet, but SOON!!
One last spot that I recently discovered is Kelly's site, Live Laugh Rowe.
I'm not sure if I found Kelly in a blogging group or what,
but the first time I clicked over, I knew I had to become a regular!
I made a quiche recipe recently that I found over at Kelly's,
but the desserts look amazing!
I just love perusing her treats
< I have a good number of treat recipes right here, too!
Enjoy those goodies! >
