The Sugar: They are tiny, darling, easy to make and a real knock-out to eat. What's not to love?The Snark: They are tiny, darling, easy to make and about knocked me on my butt with how good they are. Their size makes them good for portion control... right? Right. As in, I had a hard time controlling myself from eating everyone's portions.The Spice: I thought about various ways to try to dress these up, but frankly, there is a reason that the little black dress is a classic and I'm not one to mess with perfection. These are simple and elegant in the very best of ways.
Romance/Suspense/Mystery Novels: I am an avid reader, but I don't read biographies or things that will "make the world a better place". I probably should, but when I read, I'm not ashamed to admit it is for an escape from reality. I'm purely there for entertainment value. I have enough reality in my life, I am fine with giving myself a break and trying to take a trip to somewhere else. I'm not saying that all books are great, because they are not, but some consistent winners and my personal favorite are from Nora Roberts (and all her books as J.D. Robb too). She is a fantastic writer and really knows how to make you feel involved in the lives of your characters and get to know and love them.TV Melodramas: Again, I'm looking for entertainment and that is fine by me. My current favorites are Privileged, 90210 (don't ask me why?!), and Psych - which is just so fun and silly and hilarious and well written that I always laugh my head off, no matter how bad of a mood I'm in. I didn't discover Psych until a couple of months ago and have been recording everyone to enjoy after the kids are asleep and I need a real break. Privileged is also well written and very entertaining. I think 90210 is more like the train wreck you just can't look away from, but I still watch anyway. We also love NCIS, which is just a great show. I don't get out much with two little kids anymore, so this is my grown-up entertainment.
