I have to tell you, people, I never intended to publish this post. Ever hear of Murphy’s Law – If anything can go wrong, it will? Well, that’s how it was for me from the first moment I decided to make this Coconut Fro Yo. First of all, when I took the tub of yogurt I’d bought out of the fridge to make the base, I noticed that it had expired. Actually, it was already expired when I bought it the day earlier, only I didn’t notice. I’m usually a very diligent label reader, but on that particular day I was in a hurry and didn’t check the expiration date. My bad. Except the %*#@ing supermarket employees shouldn’t be stocking expired items on the shelves. This was not the first, second or even third time I have seen this. I think that they’re so worried about the bottom line, that they keep those old products out, banking that most shoppers that get one won’t bother to take it back. Either that or the stock guys just can’t read. I know we’re in a recession, but poisoning your customers with spoiled dairy products is not the way to boost sales! read more >>

This is what happens when you try to multi-task by wrapping Christmas presents while you’re making homemade marshmallows to give as gifts. The fire department wasn’t amused. Neither was I.
More to come…….

You can’t win ’em all. That’s what I kept telling myself when I baked my Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler for this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie event. I’ve had pretty good luck with every recipe I’ve made so far from Dorie’s book, so I had no reason to …
