New fresh look. New fresh feel. New fresh attitude. Will it stick?

Hello blogosphere.

Every year, I write like a mad dog for week, and if you’re lucky, months at a time. And then I disappear.

I bet you are reading this and saying to yourself, “what makes this time ANY different?”

Nothing. Other than I got a bug in my butt, have been busy tracking a bazillion other blogs and have decided that I need to devote some extra TLC to mine.

I bet you’re excited. Really, you are. Deep down. Go look for it.

I’ll wait.

So, GOG has a new look, a new feel and hopefully a new writer…hahahaha. No really, I think I have had a brain transformation ans I have been keeping a…get ready for it…

Blog journal.

Yes! An entire notebook on things I can write about. I think I saw this idea somewhere else and thought “WOW, is she ridiculously organized, or has WAY too much time on her hands…”

So, friend, family, fans and haters. I am back. Writing away.

For now.

(Hey, at least I am being realistic.)

 

Mine for Mikey.

It is with sadness that one of the greats in food blogging has suffered the loss of her husband, Mikey. Her post can be read here.

He was a dedicated fan to the Peanut Butter Pie. Jennie has asked for us to make such a dessert in his honor. I did not make a pie, but I did make an amazing Peanut Butter Mousse* that is just as wonderful and can be placed atop an Oreo Cookie for a pie like experience.

Please, join us foodies in honoring this man and a true friend in the blogosphere, by making a pie, or other peanut butter dish.

For Mikey.

Peanut Butter Mousse

1/2 of an 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened

2/3 cup creamy peanut butter (do not use natural peanut butter)

2 tablespoons milk

1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In a chilled small mixing bowl beat whipping cream with chilled beaters of an electric mixer on low to medium speed until soft peaks form; set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl beat cream cheese, peanut butter, and milk with an electric mixer until combined. Beat in powdered sugar and vanilla until mixture is smooth. Gently fold in beaten whipped cream, half at a time, until mixture is smooth. Cover and chill for 2 hours or up to 24 hours.

To serve, using a pastry bag with a very large star tip, pipe peanut butter mousse onto Oreo Cookies and chill for one hour. Indulge.

My first GIVEAWAY!!.

Fore Score and only One Year Ago…

I began this amazing journey with all of you.

I was a scared, cold and tired blogger, who was lonely and hungry, fighting to stay alive on the cruel streets known as life…

Ok. So I was a middle aged housewife blabbing about my daily life.

Still am. Still blabbing.

Hope you like it.
