Ishkabibbles

When Miles went to Philadelphia for his class trip a few years ago, he had his first Philly cheese steak sandwich and took a selfie as proof. I’ve made two, day trips there on my own since moving back to the east coast (DC is really the south I guess) and have tried a couple…

Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Cake

Months ago I saw a recipe for a rice krispie cake and thought it was adorable.  A friend of mine saw my tweet about the post and had a friend make the cake for her birthday.  She mentioned that it was a bit hard and very difficult to cut.  I was disappointed to hear that,…
