The Donut Bank Surprises Jon and Leslie With ‘Maple Bacon Long Johns’

So, this morning, we were just sitting in the studio, doing our show, when suddenly we see a man peering through the window at us. At first we just ignored him and then he started knocking on the window trying to get our attention. We continued to ignore him until we saw him hold up a Donut Bank donut box. (BTW - we will do most anything if given food. HINT, HINT!) Jon has never moved SO fast. He got right up and headed toward the door. And, I'm so glad he did. The mystery man turned out to be Ben Kempf from the Donut Bank!!! He wanted us to try their latest donut delight. The 'Maple Bacon Long John.' OMG! YUMMY!!

Leslie Surprises Her Kids With Smores Pudding Dessert

I have said before that I'm not really a cooker but more like a chef. What does that mean? Well, it means I don't cook very much but when I do, I usually try new recipes (which ALWAYS turn out great) or I just make up my own recipe. So, for dessert early this week, I decided to jazz up some chocolate pudding. :-)

Is the Supposed Velveeta Shortage Real or Just Good Business?

Leslie and I were talking this morning about a potential Velveeta cheese shortage that is being reported. This time of year is prime for Velveeta with the holidays wrapping up and the Super Bowl less than a month away. Oh my gosh, can you imagine a Super Bowl party without Velveeta? Oh, the humanity.

Leslie’s Lovin It – Bacon Pancakes

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Crazy I know, but it always has been. My kids feel the same way. On weekends, they LOVE for me to fix an enormous breakfast with all the fixins...biscuits and sausage gravy, lots of bacon and pancakes. They will smother the biscuits in gravy and dip the bacon in the lake of syrup on their plate. Well, leave it to Facebook to show me a GREAT way to help my dippers out.
