Salty and Sweet No Bake Popcorn Cookies from Foodie with Family

I love movies of all kinds: comedy, drama, action, adventure, COLIN FIRTH (because he gets his own category), HUGH JACKMAN (because he does, too), classics, musicals, suspense, animation (both silly and serious)… I love all of them.

Grandma’s Snickerdoodles

Grandmas Snickerdoodles from Foodie with Family

I’ve spoken before of my deep, deep love for the hot fudge sauce made by my stepmom, Val. Grandma Val’s Hot Fudge Sauce is a staple around the Foodie With Family household. It goes on ice cream, to be sure, but it is also drizzled on cake and stirred into hot milk for fabuloso hot…

Chocolate Nutter Butter Cake

Chocolate Nutter Butter Cake 1

For years I had that thin, “shatterproof” tableware because I thought it was easier to care for, cheaper, and whatnot.
