Cake pops

2 words to the wise

I wont even bother to post the recipe since there are so many easily found online. Don't make the mistake I did. Start out with 1/2 or 3/4 of a tub of frosting. If you make the "dough" too soft, the balls slide right down the lollipop stick once you dip them in the chocolate.

Happy Holidays!

Please help - close to home

3 words to the wise

My beloved readers, please help! This photo of my child and husband is entered in a calendar photo contest for the Children's Eye Foundation.My daughter was born with Septo-Optic Dysplasia, a condition which has left her with no vision in her left eye. Until I had a baby with eye issues, I had no idea how lost one could feel with an unfamiliar diagnosis. It's organizations like this that help parents make connections and find answers. Children's Eye Foundation produces an annual Calendar to promote awareness of pediatric eye issues. For more info on them, click here.

You can vote every 24 hours until October 1st. You don't have to register or give email or anything. Just bookmark this page and click once to vote daily on "like dad, like daughter". The calendar's theme is "love at first sight". This photo was taken at one week old and was an impromptu moment between my husband and daughter. My hope is that our photo makes it onto the 2011 calendar. Thanks so much in advance.

Dear OnlyBurger,

3 words to the wise

Dear OnlyBurger,
Thank you for a grilled-onion-cheddar-laden burger complete with handcut fries. You made my workday. I've missed you! I promise not to stay away so long next time.

Seriously, if you haven't checked out onlyburger, do yourself a favor next time you have a hankering for a burger but don't want to sit down in a restaurant. Today was the perfect day to take advantage of an outside lunch! They take phone orders and you can always find them via their website and twitter.
