The White Lime Experience

This month’s Mystery Box Ingredient was white chocolate. “Well,” I thought, “surely I can make something with that.” And then I thought “stop calling yourself Shirley.” (Fun fact – I have a bowling shirt with the name Shirley embroidered on it.

They didn’t turn out as well as I hoped, I suspect overmixing was the cause, but they certainly looked cute! I heard from most everyone that they were extremely […]

Homemade Oreos!

How awesome is it finding a recipe for something you love, and hearing from the people that have already made it that it’s spot on? I was so excited to find this recipe. I figured these were my dad’s favorite cookies, and let’s face it they’ve got to be most peoples’, so I couldn’t wait […]
