Super Mario Bros 2 - on the mallets

I had the privilege of playing percussion (mallets and auxiliary) during my high school and college years. I also spent many of years of my life playing Super Mario Bros - the many iterations of the game. This combination explains why I am so intrigued by this senior recital...Enjoy!

Eating Raw Cookie Dough - An Explanation

I've done some thinking, and I've come to the conclusion that many raw cookie dough eaters learned this habit when they were young...and it was urged on by the beloved E-Z Bake Oven. [If you did not own one of these wonderful contraptions, one of your siblings (or a cousin or some other relative) probably had one.]

The E-Z Bake Oven uses a lightbulb as the heat source to bake little cakes and cookies. I had one, and I can tell you that I waited a looooooong time every time I tried to bake something, and no matter how long I waited, it never came out fully baked. As a result, I would eat the half-baked cookie dough/brownie batter/whatever.   Sounds plausible, right?  OR it just too good to wait sometimes! Even if your REAL oven is fully functional!! :)

Los Angeles BBQ Festival

Hey! This weekend, those of you who live in Los Angeles can enjoy the stereotypical Californian weekend - you can swing by Santa Monica to catch some sun. But this weekend, it's better! You get to grab some BBQ. Or maybe a lot of BBQ. Looks like we have a food festival on our hands...YUM!

Ah...the perfect California weekend...sunshine and food. :)

Snickers Rockin' Nut Road Bar & Twix Java

I'm allergic to peanuts, but I thrive on finding new products. [Like I've said before, my favorite aisles in the supermarket are the candy and snack aisles.] So when I came across new Snickers bars, I picked up a bag to give to people to try. As I looked at the bag more closely, I realized that these candy bars didn't have peanuts in them! :) Yippeee!

What is in these delicious bars? It's the Mars company's interpretation of rocky road, so...almonds, caramel, and marshmallow nougat covered in dark chocolate. If you want to try them, better find them soon...the words 'limited edition' don't give you much time.

There's also a new Twix bar - Twix with Java. I've seen them, but I haven't had a chance to buy any. I'll let you know what I hear about them when I get some taste testers!

Domino's Pizza + Free Pasta

That's right - Domino's Pizza is now offering pasta! There are five varieties to choose from: Chicken Carbonara, Three Cheese Macaroni, Pasta Primavera, Chicken Alfredo, and Italian Sausage Marinara.

There's better news for those of you in Southern California...

Tomorrow, September 3, 2008, starting at 11:00 a.m., the first 100 customers who come to Domino's Pizza get a free side of pasta (your choice!). I checked with my local Domino's to make sure it was true...and it was! So gear up for an early lunch and get some free pasta! :)
