A large group of bloggers throughout the U.S. will be observing a day of silence for those in Connecticut on Monday, Dec. 17. We will post this image on our sites, rather than any planned blog posts to show solidarity with the families and victims.

Heading to Monarch Lofts cookie swap tonight? If so, I’ll be there with my Polish Kolaczky Cookies. Stop by and see me and get the recipe. Otherwise, the recipe will be available in a few days over at Boston Sweetie’s blog where I’ll be writing a guest post during her December Cookie Blitz-a-thon — she’s got a cookie-a-day recipe so be sure to stop by and show her some love, too!
Holiday Shopping Finds 2012
Black Friday. Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday. So many ways to spend your well-earned paychecks in the days following Thanksgiving and leading up to Christmas.
I thought I’d take a quick glance at some of the quirky foodie finds that you can find out there this year. All of these items were found at a local CVS pharmacy in the metro Boston area so you may not be able to find all of these in your area. I’ve tried linking to online shopping sites that carry the items, if you’re curious.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the foodie gifts…
The first item on our wish list is this Super Pretzel maker. Now, you can bring home that soft-baked pretzel taste from the ballpark. You can make five mini soft pretzels and warm up cheese for dipping. It also comes with a recipe book. In the store, it sells for $19.99. Buy online here.
Dakota’s Pumpkin Peanut Butter Treats
Hi to all my mommy’s bloggie followers. It’s Dakota again. I hope everyone is having a great fall. I know I am. It’s so much fun to run through all of the fallen leaves on our walks.
This week, my mommy and daddy have orientation at my doggie school. I’m enrolled in a class called “Diamonds in the Ruff” at the MSPCA for eight weeks. I’m a little afraid of other dogs and some people, so this class — we hope — is going to get me more comfortable around some other four-legged friends.
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I love chasing after my daddy outside and he’s really good at tug ‘o war. But, my mommy likes fall a whole bunch, too. This is one of her favorite times of year to bake things. So, she made me some really awesome homemade baked doggie treats. Let’s see how she made ’em…
Review: Sweet Clove Sunshine Cafe
When my father-in-law said he wanted to take us for breakfast at the Honeybaked Ham Store when we were visiting Columbus earlier this fall, I thought to myself, “Really? The Honeybaked Ham Store?”
One of my faults about food is coming to a decision much too quickly — even before getting to the final destination. This was just one of those times.
Now, I love me some Honeybaked Ham at the holidays. I’ll be hovering over that pork carcass peeling off the sugary coating and licking my fingers of its savory juices. The leftovers are perfect for omelettes and sandwiches in the following days.
The Honeybaked Ham Store runs Sweet Clove Sunshine Cafe in Columbus, Ohio. This sit-down restaurant churns out hearty breakfast sandwiches, towering pancakes and mouth-watering good eggs benedicts.
So, let’s take a closer look at this breakfast mindblow…
