i love my sister.

peanut butter crispy bars!
{Peanut Butter Crispy bars that my sister and I made this summer. Never actually made it to our baking blog. Sad & pathetic. Here's the recipe if you want to make these. I suggest you do. But don't think too much about the ingredients. Clearly these bars are the opposite of good for you.}

Happy Friday! I hope you're enjoying yours. I just made homemade salsa (I guess it's more like pico de gallo, actually.) and it is the bomb. All you need to do is cut up a tomato, cut up some onion, drain canned corn, chop up 3 leaves of basil, put it all in a tupperware, scoop it onto a chip (I like the Tostitos Multigrain, personally) and enjoy. You're welcome.

My sister just emailed me a document titled "Oh Baking, I love you." That is precisely why I love her, among other reasons, of course. After every recipe, the type of recipe is written in all caps with an exclamation mark. Example: "DESSERT!" "DINNER!" "SAVORY!" I just had to smile about that. We both love to bake (not very well evidenced by our baking blog, which I'm pretty sure has not been updated since August), but she is much better at actually baking. I just dream about it all. I think every time I talk to her on the phone she's baked something new. And we talk on the phone sometimes bi-weekly, people. That means she is baking a lot, and I'm not reaping the benefits. Oh well, someday we'll live in the same state again. Let's hope it's sooner rather than later.

I know I've said this twice now, but Jeffrey and I are going camping this weekend! And, we had a little cold front come through last night so the temperature is sitting at a lovely 76-ish degrees. Hello, Perfect Camping Weather! Have a really awesome weekend. Do something fun for Halloween! I'm hoping to make Caramel Apples one of these days, but who knows, maybe I'll just dream about it (while my sister actually does it...) xo, R.
