Choc-o-lunch

There are some days when all you (I) want for lunch is chocolate.  Lots of chocolate.  And this is from a woman who almost always chooses caramel or vanilla sweets.  But not today folks, today chocolate would rule my lunch break.  Of course tomorrow is my weigh-in at Weight Watchers and I wanted to stay…

Family Coffee Talk

For those of you who have read my blog, you know I consider Fridays “Foodless” and I talk about any of the other wonderful things out there that make me who I am. You may have noticed that I have also been a bit absent so I thank you for sticking with me!  I hope…

Snaaaack Forever by Snack Attack

Hi!  Happy Friday!  (Did anyone get the title play on words from Saved By the Bell?  Friends Forever.  Zack Attack.  Hello?)  Anywhoosle, in the past I’ve always kept Fridays as Foodless, but I wanted to let you know about some great snacks I found so I think bending the rules this once is ok 🙂…

New Year, New Daisy

A new year, a new start.  Like many of others today is going to be my last first day on Weight Watchers, getting back to a gym for the first time in a few years, walking the longer way from the bus stop.  There is also purging my purse and makeup bag; reorganizing the kitchen,…

New Year’s Eve Brunch

Happy New Year’s Eve!  What a year 2012 has been :). So today I wanted to make something special and different for brunch for my family.  I love having free range of my Mom’s kitchen.  The selection of food is always better! I fished around in the fridge and decided to make something around the mushrooms…

Happy #blackfriday!  I hope your Thanksgiving was spent warm and cozy with your family and friends.  As you can see I have made a few design changes to my site.  Fall cleaning, if you will.  I have also added a new page; Remember These? where I showcase long-gone treats of youth.  I have also updated…

I’ll have some turkey with that bacon

  A coworker sent this to me this morning so I can’t take credit for it…but OH MY.  I think the turkey skin would be weird, right?  Maybe if it was a skinless turkey this could work.  What do you think?  Happy *early* Thanksgiving my faithful readers!  

Bonjour, Macaroon!

There is nothing I like better than crisp Fall air early in the morning, the sun becoming bright in the sky.  I like it almost as much as I like learning a new cooking technique.  Last night, a friend and I became privy to one of the baffling mysteries of the culinary world.  “How the…

Who? Dr. Who.

Let me start my saying that with the exception of a trip to a Dr. Who Experience while I was in England last year I have had no other experience, knowledge or understanding of the whole Dr. Who phenomenon.  My understanding of the whole this is still a little low, however cake I know.  Cake…

Summer Break

Hello, faithful readers!  Dishin’ with Daisy will be going on Summer vacation for a bit in the coming weeks.  When I’m back, there will be some updates and surprises and I am excited for the road ahead as I come up on my two years of blogging.  Wishing you all well and hope you are…

Rainbows and Doodles

Hello friends, I hope you are faring well in this sweltering heat wave.  Today’s post is about a birthday cake I prepared for a co-worker’s daughter’s 4th birthday.  She was having a rainbow themed party and we must have both been on the same wavelength because we both knew if I was going to make…

Happy Independence Day!

Hi Friends, I want to wish you the happiest Independence Day.  Have an old-fashioned picnic with family and friends, watch the hot-dog eating contest and top it all off with a spectacular fireworks display.  And, if you are so inclined, you can make a fun cake like I did.  Enjoy! For the complete recipe and…
