It's basically the opposite of Frog Eye Salad which is not a salad, nor does it have frog eyes in it.
It's good in only the way that Midwestern food can be. There are no claims that it's good for you or low-fat. And, for good measure, it's made in a casserole dish.
So, 'Cherry Dessert' it is!

No, really. They were.
The point is, when we lived there, we ate a lot of chips and salsa. A lot, a lot.
Austin's parents are big snackers. I'm not saying all the time, but often, we'd all sit around a bowl of salsa and a bag of tortilla chips and that was dinner.
"What do you want for dinner?" "I don't care what sounds good to you?" None of that.
I know what I'm having for dinner tonight.

The leaves have already started to change color here in Utah. Part of me really loves it.
I love it for a lot of reasons. First of all, I hate to sweat. So lower temps are an obvious plus. Second, I'm getting married this fall, and I'm ready to be done with the planning and the thinking about wedding stuff.
I'm ready to start relaxing on weekends, watching football, going for hikes, reading books.
On the other hand, this summer was unbelievable hectic and I feel like I missed the whole thing. So I kind of want to hold on to the last little bit of summer we have left.

I'm a shower person. I like long showers where the water never gets cold and no one is knocking on the door telling me to get out.
I'd really like to be a bath person, and every once in a while, I try. But, I just can't.
Clearly, I'm doing it wrong.
Part of the reason I want to like baths is because I do like all the bath paraphernalia.
My mom and I made these mint/lime 'flavored' salt scrubs for the favors for my sister's baby shower. Luckily, we had some left over so I can practice becoming a bath person! :)

For me, it's pretty much just cake and donuts.
Kind of an 'I'll eat it, but I won't like it' type of thing.
Cakes can sometimes be too dry or too crumbly. Sometimes they're even too moist, or not cooked through properly. But what really kills a cake is the icing.
9 times out of 10, the icing is just too sweet. It makes it really hard to eat the quantities of cake that I like to serve myself when you feel like you're going to go into shock because of the sugar overload.
Even though when you make this recipe, it won't be as good as my mom's, I bet it's still the best icing you've ever made or tasted.
