I can see we’re going to take a few twists and turns to get to the recipe.

And that’s just a shoutout to the people who mostly come on Fridays for my timey wimey, twisty curvy, topsy turvy posts. I put a little or a lot of myself in every post. And yet, when I’m looking for a recipe, I tend to keep scrolling to the actual recipe and I’m like, “Stop talking about your parakeet and show me the cookies!” The thing is, though, I’m a writer and I like to gab too. Also, I’ve been blogging for nine years so people are just showing up for whatever train wreck or masterpiece they’ll find. Sometimes you’ll find both in one place. Train wreck and masterpiece:

I’m just going to tell you one story. When I was 14, I was kind of goth. Lightweight goth. I had dark hair already, and loved wearing black clothing and dark lipstick. It ended there. No fishnets, although I love them now. No makeup or tattoos or dyed hair. Like I said – lightweight goth. Sometimes I tell people that and they are shocked. I like that. Sometimes I tell people that and they say, “Yeah, I could see that.” I love color, though. On me, in front of me, and on my shoes!

Easter desserts

Trust me when I say that nothing is too bright for me. I’ve been making up for lost time for over 20 years – to overcompensate for that tiny snippet of goth life. What can I say? You can see my true colors. Look at this blog! The theme is rainbow sprinkles. I built my redesign around colors!

And, you know, so it can be mobile-friendly for recipes like this.

  1. Can’t really picture you as a goth. But I think we all had our moments as teens. I went through a Seattle Grunge phase there during the height of Nirvana and Pearl Jam. But that said, you my friend will always be just rainbow sprinkles to me – always! Hugs and love your spring flower pots almost as much as I love you <3

  2. Cute and easy are my favorites! I need a mini popover pan. And as a high schooler I had uber-blonde power 90’s hair. Goth would have been better.

    1. I don’t know. I bet you looked hot! Everyone needs a mini popover pan. I want to start a mini popover drive through restaurant in my yard. We have the space!

  3. Just when I think your desserts couldn’t get any cuter – they get cuter! I love how colorful these are too. They’d be so cute at the place settings for Easter. I’ve never liked black clothing enough to be goth!
