I admit it, we've eaten a lot of sweet treats lately. I've had a lot of fall occasions that called for sugar goodies. Enjoy.
IMPOSSIBLE PIE: This pie is "impossibly" easy. It's essentially a coconut pie called Impossible because a pie crust miraculously forms when baking. Super simple and a crowd favorite: Food And Wine's Impossible Pie
SALTED CARAMEL POPCORN AND PRETZEL BARS: As I post this, I shudder. Not because it's bad, but because it's too good. I may have eaten too much, all three times that I made it within seven days. I think it's safe to say I won't be making it again any time soon. But, you should. Salted Caramel Popcorn and Pretzel Bars
PUMPKIN FLUFF DIP: Okay, this one surprised me. It's a pumpkin dip with very few ingredients and yet I had several girlfriends talking about it for days. It literally took me less than 5 minutes to whip up. Enjoy. Pumpkin Fluff Dip
PEANUT BUTTER SNICKERS BROWNIES: What to do with all of your leftover Halloween candy? Make brownies. These are messy, but taste good. Peanut Butter Snickers Brownies
It's been early at the Jordan household for several months. Palmer has consistently been ready to start the day around 5am. No matter how long we let Palmer stay in his crib before going to his room, he still wakes at 5am.
Rough. (Especially for a mom that tries to squeeze in a morning workout before work.)
We tried everything the books said: "Put the baby to sleep one half hour earlier, put the baby to sleep with a full belly, don't go in the nursery until the time that you want the baby to wake and he'll figure it out, etc. etc."
What the books didn't suggest is to put the baby to bed LATER. We moved Palmer's bedtime one hour later last week (which was really TWO hours later with the time change).
AND we have good news: slowly Palmer is waking up later and later each day. This morning, he work at 7:15 am!! Hallelujah.
Maybe we're on to something. (I hope I didn't just jinx everything.)
Watch our happy baby. There's nothing better than a baby laughing.
PS The smocked outfits in the picture and video above are outfits my mom smocked for my brother, who is now 25 years old. What fun treasures!
