Back (ok, way back) before I turned 30, I loved sweets.
M&M’s, tiramasu, cheesecake… and Key Lime Pie was my favorite. As a matter of fact, my husband brought home a key lime pie for my last birthday knowing I wouldn’t want any. He’s a sentimental sap, bless his heart.
I have no idea what changed; out of nowhere I lost my affinity for eating sweet stuff. Maybe I got burned out because when Mark and I first got married we had to get a Dairy Queen Blizzard every single night for about a year. That nightly habit changed quickly to fattening ass popcorn with our American Idol/Boston Legal obsession – I do not recommend it, the gluttony led us straight up knocking on Jenny Craig’s door. Not even kidding.
No need in depriving yourself, but everything in moderation, kids.
Every now and then I like a bite of chocolate, like a Hershey’s mini. Or two. So, when I make something sweet it’s mainly for my kids and my husband.
I just want something hot and spicy. With some cheese on top. Not to say that cheesy hot shit isn’t fattening. Again, moderation.
Another one of my favorites was Nutter Butter cookies. I absolutely LOVED those things, so I found ran across a recipe from Cookies and Cups and made them just for fun.
The recipe was on point. They were good – just ask my kids. But don’t ask Mark because he he’ll say he doesn’t like peanut butter but he ate a shit ton of them anyway (ssshh).
The kids asked me to make them again. I think I might.
Here’s the printable –
