Dusting Off The New Year's Resolutions...

I proudly made my 12 Baking Resolutions of 2010, and only did ONE of them. Yeah....way to go me. Well, I am dusting off those resolutions and making TWO items today (I am off work today). Thanks to Joy the Baker for having so many recipes to try!

S'mores Brownies

Giant Sweet Paprika Biscuits

For dinner tonight we are having a Penne and Smoked Sausage Bake. There will be pictures to come.

I had labs drawn today. I learned something new....you must fast for a Vitamin A lab. I try to err on the side of caution and always fast with labs, and bring something in my purse to eat as soon as I get done.

Two Things I'm Just Not Into Anymore...

Ice Cream: Yeah, this comes as a big shock to me too. This one has been a gradual process, but I'm pretty much at the point where I can say I want to pass on ice cream. (Which is a shame with spring and summer coming up!) I started getting a small ice cream, and couldn't finish it. Then I switched to the children's cone, and have started getting to the point where I don't want to finish that either. We have Graeter's Ice Cream here (making me a 100% ice cream snob), and I know my introduction to this delight had to at least put 10-15 pounds on me in college.

Hawaiian Bread Rolls with Spinach Dip: I used to tear this stuff up. I learned about it at grad school when someone brought it to a potluck we were having during class. I was hooked instantly. I had some the other day, and it has just lost its appeal to me. Not a bad thing, really.

If you have a chance, go over and read Hobo Teacher's Post called "Walk this Way." Hobo Teacher is the Brian Reagan (one of my favorite comedians) of teaching, and even if you are not a teacher, I promise this post is worthwhile! I had HH read it aloud last night, and I was cracking up!

Speaking of sharing...where's the recipe for the S'More Brownies?! ;-)
