If you thought this post was about how my teeth got to be straight for 25 cents... I have bad news. My parents will be the first to tell you my Invisalign in high school cost more than 25 cents.
In Texas, I changed. I became a baker from scratch. No more pre-made cookie dough rolls for me. I got a Kitchen Aid Mixer and the title "Betty Crocker" from my co-workers.
The real reward now is giving whatever I bake away - especially to my co-workers - and seeing their reactions. Like this message from my assignment editor when I brought in dirt pudding Tuesday:
Did you make that Pyrex dish full of evil sorcery by the break room?"
My executive producer in Texas asked me once why I baked for them so much. I told him it's a way to make someone smile... for less than 25 cents.
I have a problem.
It happens in the grocery store frozen food aisle. See, my cart gets stuck in front of the frozen yogurt section. It get stuck. Seriously! The only way to get the cart moving again is by throwing a package of yogurt bars into the cart.
For two years now, this has been my routine. I love yogurt bars, two brands in particular, but I'm an "all are welcome" kind of yogurt bar eater. If it's in the freezer sections, I've probably tried it.
Here's the other non-revolutionary fact about making homemade frozen yogurt bars. The types of fruit are very flexible. I'm even planning on trying to replicate my favorite coffee chocolate chip yogurt bars next.
If you try them, let me know! I would love to see your photos and recipes.
Do you love pancakes? Do you also love eating healthish? Then this morning I made up a new recipe this morning I think you're going to love!
Also, usually when I make up pancake recipes, I add egg whites. Well, the egg whites in my refrigerator have expired and I don't ever take risks with expired foods (thanks to a very bad experience with expired ranch dressing when I was a little kid - thanks mom). So that's why there aren't eggs in this recipe. But honestly, it turned out great without them!

From my TV high heels, to the baseball cap I wear nearly everywhere else... I'm finding my voice in this blogging world.
