Let’s talk eggs, ugly pictures, “viral” posts, and people mad about microwaves.

Eggs in the microwave. Done in two minutes.

These, right up there ↑, are microwaved scrambled eggs.

They may be the simplest concoction I’ve ever posted here.

I was flabbergasted by the ease of them. The one dish wonder. The fastness of it all.

I’d never seen it done before I saw the add in a magazine.

I only had mediocre pics to post with it, but I went ahead and posted.

Then Buzzfeed picked it up, and now it is BY FAR, the most visited page on Home is Where the Cookies Are.

It’s my one claim to fame. My one “viral” post.

I can’t decide how I feel about this.

Stirred up eggs zapped in the microwave and sprinkled with cheese. . . .

And an ugly picture to top it off.

It also happens to be the only post that inspires ugly comments.

One commenter screamed the F-word at me (in writing, of course), for sticking eggs in the microwave.

I did not publish that comment.

Just like I tell my kids Folks – you can disagree with me, but it must be done respectfully.

Then we can have a mature discussion about the dangers of eggs in the microwave.

One, on the Buzzfeed feed, pointed out that I burned the toast (and then another commenter corrected them, “No Dude, it’s pumpernickel”. Thank you Random Defender).

Salted Chocolate Toffee Pretzel Bark/ Crack Bark

This is Crack Bark. Long title: Salted Chocolate Toffee Pretzel Bark.

But truly, it should only really be known as Crack Bark.

‘Nuff said.

You should probably make it.

And if you don’t want to shovel the whole thing down your face hole in one sitting, pre-plan who you are going to share it with.

It’s dangerous and intoxicating, and must be kept in mind for when you’re putting together your gift packages this season.

And again, poor, poor ugly pics that don’t do it justice.

Baked Onion Rings

Baked onion rings.

Must I say anything other than what the picture already tells us?

Crispy, delicious, mock-fried onion rings.

For a while, this was the most popular post in these parts.

Every day, I’d know. . . those darn onion rings again.

But I can’t fault popular demand.

The deserved their run of popularity.

Barbecue Baked Beans From Scratch - With bacon, brown sugar, and Magic Spice, these beans are sweet and spicy and always get rave reviews!

Barbecued Baked Beans from Scratch.


No ugly pics.

The photo’s all right.

And it also, is one of the most visited pages.

Again – can’t fault anyone out there for that.

These are just plain good, and it feels good to make them from scratch.

Martha's Pecan Bars - shortbread base layered with a brown sugar/honey caramel and loads of pecansThose right there ↑ are Martha’s (as in Stewart) Pecan Bars.

I happen to love this picture.

But the food sites did not share the same opinion.

Even though – this cookie bar gained some major momentum on other random food-collection sites, and now is one of the most Pinned recipes.

These are deep-sigh, eyeball-rolling, heavenly good.

Criminals certainly know how to whip up dessert.

And they travel well. Holiday potlucks? Yes. Cookie exchanges? Yes. Mailed to Grandparents. Yes. Yes. Yes.

Kool-Aid Scented Play Dough, make your own fruity scented play dough. DIY

This was my first post to ever make it on to Tastespotting.

Don’t eat this Kool-Aid Scented Play-Dough.

It’s not food, but it’s a darn fun way to make play dough.

And it is a fun thing to stuff into stockings.

Why am I all of the sudden talking about Christmas so much??

Oh. Right.

It’s NOVEMBER already!!!!

What the???!!!

I gotta go.

I need to get my holiday organization on.

  1. “It’s pumpernickel, dude” made me laugh! You should make and sell official Where the Cookies Are t-shirts and make that your official slogan. Home is where the toast is, too!

    It warms my heart to see all those and know we’ve been blog buddies for a while now. I remember those posts!

    xo, D

    • Hmmm. . . .I’m starting to consider this. It’s not the first time you’ve suggested T-shirts. Remember “Fat vehicles are our friends”? Maybe, juuuust maybe. . . . 😉
