MOPS Round-up

I had a wonderful group of ladies over tonight. We enjoyed sharing our ideas, passions and experiences and talked about next year’s MOPS group. We also had food. Lots of it. For those who were there, thank you for your servant’s hearts, enthusiasm, questions and support. I am so excited to take this journey with you next year! Here’s the round-up of treats so you don’t have to go searching all over Bakerlady-land to find them. 🙂

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Happy Easter! These little candies are perfect for giving to some-bunny you love. They also make egg-ceptional Easter basket items! Hop some over to your neighbors, they’ll love you forever! Oh, I crack myself up…ok, enough with the egg jokes. The peanut butter mixture is very crumbly, add the milk until you can pick up a handful, squeeze it and have it hold its shape.  I would suggest making them no larger than about an inch and a half long – they are VERY sweet!

Peeps

It’s Peeps season! Spring is here, the sun is partially out, Easter is just around the corner & the cherry trees are blooming. Which, incidentally means my poor hubby’s allergies have kicked in. Poor guy. Every grocery store has boxes and boxes of Peeps lining their featured shelves. Yellow! Pink! Purple! Bunnies & chicks…there they are with their little mournful brown eyes. Begging, seeming to plead with me “eat me, eat me!”. I found out in a recent meeting that my pastor at church LOVES Peeps. Who knew!? Somehow I figured he was too intellectually and spiritually deep a person to enjoy what is essentially puffed up sugar. Topped with more sugar. But what am I saying? Peeps are one of my favorite treats on the planet, and I’m practically a genius and I totally dig Jesus. So maybe Peeps are just the sweet of choice for those who are truly mentally gifted. Or maybe Bible reading stimulates the sugar receptors in our brains? Yeah. That must be it. 🙂 [Read more…]

Game Night Treats

I’m so excited for the return of game night with my church small group. We have a great time together with food, laughter, games and just enjoying each others company. I went to some easy comfort food treats tonight. Nothing fancy or new, just good hang out snacks. Since I’ve posted them both before, I’m just including the links with photos in this post. I know, how lazy am I today? I will say however that you’ll never have better rice crispy treats than mine. Oooh good! [Read more…]

Turtles

Turtles (so named because of their cute turtle shape) are delicious. You can buy a box of them for about $20. Or, you can make them yourself for WAY less without much effort at all. Today I used up the remainder of a bag of caramels, and only had pecan pieces (which I just made little piles of and put the caramel on top) so this batch does not totally look like turtles…but you get the idea.  [Read more…]

Simple Caramel Apples

Yesterday I went in search of caramels to make my Halloween tradition, Caramel Apples. I had to visit three stores before I found one that had them in stock. It was very frustrating – but, these babies are totally worth the irritation. You can go crazy with decorating caramel apples…drizzle with melted chocolate, rolled in chocolate then coconut or candies etc. I prefer the good old-fashioned original.

We had a great spread tonight at our gathering – I also made Wassail, Mom’s Tortellini Soup, Applesauce Drop Doughnuts, and Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.
