Cherry Crisp – Farming but not really!


Cherry crips – Yummy!

All these years I’ve had a cherry tree and never really picked much off of it. I mean, it’s just been there and I don’t have to maintain much of it. Chop back some branches but really that is it. And watering it, forget about it. We live Continue reading


So I was undecided for dinner and did a few of my recipes already published: 

Sweet Mustard Pork Tenderloin:

Butterscotch Blondies: Weekend Snack – Chocolate Butterscotch Blondies | Modern Wife Tale

Both were delicious. See it’s good to keep a little blog about what you eat so you can always figure out recipes in a pinch. Plus the picky hubby liked them the first time around. Even better the second time!

Weekend Snack – Butterscotch Rice Crispy Treats

4 ingredient dessert that’s ready in 30 minutes. Well I’m in! I’ve been trying to think of other ways to use rice crispy cereal besides just the regular treats that we all have a million times. Fred Meyer had their cereal on sale for $1 a box so I grabbed a few. Figured they have a lasting shelf life Continue reading

Blondies – Yummy!

So I had a craving for brownies the other day. But picky husband doesn’t like chocolate brownies so I was trying to find a happy ground. I forgot all about Blondies until I was scrolling around Pinterest. And Pinterest being the way it is I found 600+ recipes for blondies. Continue reading

Weekend Snack – Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp - Too Hot To Eat Yet!

Apple Crisp – Too Hot To Eat Yet!

I love fall. I want to bake, craft, wear scarves, layer my clothes, drink pumpkin spice latte (I’m from the PNW – I have to have coffee and I typically drink it black except for an occasional pumpkin spice), and eat apples. They are a dime a dozen around here and I like to take full advantage of it. I’m even going to Continue reading

Oreo Treats – Power’s Out Dessert

So I found this easy recipe all around on Pinterest and figured hey I can make those. We have a friend having a house-warming party and I was always raised that you bring food or a gift to every invite. Sometimes people don’t specify so I don’t know if I’m to bring things or not. Wine, beer, coasters, funky kitchen gift (avocado slicers are minor miracles in case you ever need a quicky gift), a babysitter or designated driver. Continue reading

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars – Epic & Easy!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

I love chocolate and peanut butter. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are in my top 5 off all time favorite candies. Peanut butter m&m’s are pretty epic also. I had a horrible habit as a kid that I would get a 1 pound bag of m&m’s Continue reading

So if you follow me on Facebook you would see I did this cake last week. But I figured it was so fun I’ll share it on here also. Also last nights cooking was French fries and crab, nothing too spectacular to photograph there – Haha!

I made this cake for my nephew who loves candy. Almost to a fault. But I figured “Hey, I’m not working, I’ve always wanted to make this after seeing it all over Pinterest & if it doesn’t work rice crispy treats are an easy back up.” So I made it and it is one of the Continue reading
