I don't think I've had rice krispie treats in like almost a year. Sometimes you just crave simple things like that. At least I do. I know Brandon likes these and I also stumbled into some confetti sprinkles today at the commissary. I can't say I'm familiar with the commissary here in Milton yet. They have a unique way to stocking things and I find things were I don't think they would ever be. It's quite the challenge just to get the items on my grocery list - but I'm getting there. I better, I go there enough. lol. It's scary that I can spend a good hour and a half at the grocery store when I don't have very many "neccessities" to get. It's time I take for myself I suppose. Most people might think I am nuts but I feel myself and worry-free at the store. Oh, instead of butter I used earth balance so this is totally IBS safe. ;-)
I think I have a handle of how my camera works now. I can't believe there are so many options on a little camera.
Bobby Flay is going to be in Mobile, Al this Saturday. SO sad I'm not going. The tickets I believe are like $75. I've decided that I like Bobby Flay alot. When I first started watching his show, he scared me a little. He seemed really strict and almost unapproachable. That is until he started filming his show Bobby Flays Throwdown. I LOVE that show, and it shows such a fun side of him, a more approachable, friendly, and less intimidating person.
I'd like to meet him. Him, and Alton Brown! I learn so much from Alton. Gotta love him.
Well tomorrow, I am hoping to attempt making a Pumpkin Challah, a recipe from Rosa's Yummy Yums. Wish me like, it looks delicious, plus I gotta take advantage of this time of the year. It gives me more than an excuse to make anything and everything pumpkin. SWEET!

I know what you mean about spending a lot of the time in the grocery store. I ALWAYS spend 30 minutes or more in there.

I like Bobby Flay, too. Especially Throwdown. I wish you could go and take pictures.

I made krispie treats recently and it's amazing how that simple treat can taste so good. I am the same as you regarding Bobby Flay. Until I started watching the Throwdown I kind of thought he was a bit "too big for his britches". That shows a better side of him. Who would ever think we would pay money to see a food star the same as a rock star -- LOL.

I like Bobb Flay's food. Can't wait for your report :)

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

Mmmmhhh, that looks indecently yummy!

Good luck with the Pumpkin Challah! I hope that you'll like it... I'm looking forwards to reading your thoughts regarding that wonderful brioche.

I just had a conversation this week about how homemade rice krispie treats far outweigh the store-bough version, which tastes of vanillin.

I like your touch with the sprinkles, it makes it look cheery!

Emilie - yeah really. I wish I could go too, but I think I would be star struck and won't be able to ask him any questions. Brandon hates going to the store with me because I take forever. lol

Anj - Thanks for stopping by.The rice krispies have been sitting there wanting me to eat them. hehehe. Yes, throwdown really does put his best foot forward.

Cynthia - I wish I could give you a report but I didn't go.

Rosa - The pumpkin challah turned out wonderfully! I will post soon. :-D

Christina - Thanks! It makes it look a little festive huh? lol. I haven't had the store brought ones in a long time. I was tempted at first to just buy them, but then I was like....are you crazy? It'll take 2 seconds to make. lol.

Christina said...

Nice design update, I really like it!

Thanks christina! Do you think it's easy enough to read?

Peabody said...

Very fun and festive.

Angsana said...

I love the new layout and colours you chose! The picture of the rice krispies goes well with it! :))

Christina said...

Yes, it's easy to read, though the color you chose for your blog title (is that called the header? I need to work on my html/css lingo...) is a bit difficult to read. I mean, I can see it but it does something strange to my eyes when I first look at it until I focus. I think it just doesn't stand out as much as it did to me.

Cheryl said...

Rice krispies treat, what a classic. Love the festive touch.

Peabody - Thank you! I love this time of the year. Makes me SO happy!

Mom - Thank you mom. Glad you like it!

Christina - I tried to change the font and I put shadow behind the font so hopefully it is easier to read. I appreciate your input cause I was thinking the same thing. By the way, I don't have a clue about the lingo either. lol.

Cheryl - Thanks cheryl. Gotta make the best of this season!
