Pumpkin Dump Cake – September 23, 2011 – Oh my, why haven’t I heard of this before. Maybe because I would be even bigger than I am already. Still, that said, I think I might make this to share with friends sometime, just to try it out. (Wink)
Forward or back? – September 22, 2011 – I wish more people realized that you can’t turn back the clock. Time only progresses forward and the past is rarely a rosy as we think it was.
At the Techmunch food blogger conference on Friday, Bakespace.com announced their new cookbook app for the Apple iPad — Cookbook Cafe!
Cookbook Cafe allows anyone to produce a personal, organizational or fund-raising cookbook and deliver it directly via the iPad. I was asked to create one of the first cookbooks for the app and it is now available in the store (Don’t worry, it’s FREE right now!)
Sharing Christmas with Friends includes some of my cookie recipes, but also the recipe for my Super Secret Christmas Chili!
If you ever wanted this recipe, this might be the easiest way to get it.
Please check out the app on your iPad and give it a review and rating in the iTunes store. This will help spread the word!
Here are some screenshots of my cookbook in the iPad App. Thanks to Ric of his help in grabbing these!
Even if you don’t have a Kindle, you can download free software to read Kindle books on almost any device including Windows and Mac computers, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android device. I have “checked out” several eBooks via the existing methods, but I think this Kindle method will open up the number of titles available and also make them easier to download and read.

For more information see the website www.islandfox.org. Teachers and their families can get into the Zoo free with preregistration.
I have never been much of a pancake fan before, but lately I have been having cravings for them. I like my pancakes light and fluffy, so I went looking for a recipe with just those qualities. I found one (among many) over on Allrecipes.com — Fluffy Pancakes.
This photo is an example of a fresh batch just off the cast iron griddle that always sits atop our stove — perfect for just such a meal. If you have a hankering for pancakes, this recipe works very well. It only makes about 6 average-sized pancakes, but the recipes is easily doubled or tripled if you want to make a larger batch. I do add a bit more milk than the recipe calls for, just to make them a little bit lighter.
Learn the Career Path of a Lawyer – September 16, 2011 – This is a great ‘Real World Example” for a law career. I love interviews like this as I think it helps explain to new careerists just what a particular might be like.
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup – September 15, 2011 – Ok, I admit it, I am a sucker for these dressed up coffee drinks. The calories keep me from buying them too often, though — and the cost. Making the pumpkin syrup could be the answer to one of these questions, though.
Google Flight Search with Google Maps – September 14, 2011 – Let’s see what Google can add to the airline search market. I, for one, would like some improvements in the airline industry first, but anything that can help me book my flights is appreciated.
If This Then That recipes to improve your social media use – September 14, 2011 – Think of it like a macro language for your social media use. Be careful, as certain actions could quickly annoy your friends and followers, but some of the personal actions could be quite useful, especially for archiving online data locally or on another service.
