Coffee Time with Shugary Sweets

Coffee Time

So I thought it would be fun to have a new series here on Shugary Sweets.

I don’t have a lot of friends. I mean, I do, but I don’t see them much.

Cause I’m here.

With you people.

In my kitchen creating recipes or online sharing with all of you! So will you guys pretend to be my friend and act interested in this series? Please don’t expect me to post every week. Just like I tend to occasionally blow of my friends and reschedule lunch dates in real life, most certainly it will happen here on the blog too!

That said, grab a cup of coffee. Or a smoothie. Or tea. Or what is it you all actually do or drink when you’re on the computer?

I usually have a cup of something hot to drink. My office is chilly, and being the senior citizen that I am (I turn the big 4-0 this year, don’t judge), I usually have a lap blanket and slippers too. Oh the joys of working from home!

So let’s get to this chat time. Since I don’t really know how to write without smiley faces and one million exclamation points (!!!) how about I share some photos that I stumbled across this week?

Most Drool Worthy Photo: Best photo I’ve seen all week. Caramel Apple Milky Way Cheesecake Cookie Bars. And I think my Facebook fans agree since this photo was shared on my page 908 times! Visit Jocelyn at Inside BruCrew Life for more delicious ideas!

I’m Loving It: Did you know April is almost over? Sure you do. Normal people have calendars. I wing it day by day using that little clock on my computer. Pathetic right? Okay fine. I have a calendar. A big dry erase one on the wall near my kitchen. It lists all our daily activities (sports). Makes me want to throw a tantrum so I don’t look at it often.

But, with April nearly over that means May is around the corner. Which means Mother’s Day! Anyone else like to drop hints about what they want? That’s the great thing about this blog. My husband reads it. So, for instance, if I were to say “I’m loving this perfume, sure wish I had a bottle” maybe he would get the hint?


Dinner Inspiration: I spend a lot of time planning meals. And when I don’t, my family eats pancakes and eggs for dinner. This Spicy Pulled Pork Popper Sandwich is on our menu for next week. Sure wish Trish would just deliver so I didn’t have to cook!


What’s New: I mentioned it’s almost May right? Which means it’s almost June. Which means summer is almost here! Which means, once again, I will be on the hunt for the perfect bathing suit. One that hides all my flaws. Pretty much never happens, but a girl can dream.

I started doing this #BIKINISERIES workout from Tone it Up. One of the workouts this week was to fix the bikini strap area. Ummm, really of all places? don’t think I’m too worried about the bikini strap area when my whole mid section is hanging out. Just sayin. I always hope my new workout series will FIX it all, but I guess eating these cookies for lunch doesn’t help the bikini wearing dream. Still a great workout! 


Very Pinteresting: With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner (yeah, I’m back to that calendar thing), I have been saving all sorts of recipe ideas to my Pinterest Cinco de Mayo board (clever name, right??). This Baked Crunch Taco Casserole is going on our menu May 5.

I think.

It could change. But right now all I want to do is face plant into this casserole. Genius idea Heather!! Might not help in the bikini wearing, but whatever.

Most Popular on Shugary Sweets: In case you missed this recipe, or are stopping here for the first time (HELLO!!!) these Oatmeal Cream Pies were the most popular recipe on the blog this week. Crazy right, have you seen the photo? Ugh.

I put them on the blog 2 years ago before the blog was even a food blog. I started this blog as a family blog and didn’t become Shugary Sweets until May 2011. (how many times can one person say BLOG in one paragraph?). Anyways, someone shared these on Facebook this week, and they became popular again! So enjoy!

Alright friends. I’m off to go watch some television. I’m in the middle of Season 2 of Vampire Diaries.

I know I said I’m a senior citizen, but I try to counter that with my choice in TV shows. Plus, it’s cool to stay with it for my teens. Right? Peace out. YOLO. Snap. Yeah, I’m totes cool. Till next week….

  1. Ive been pining away for your lil debbie knockoffs since 2011 ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great weekend!

  2. Oh my gosh! I am still in shock at how many times those Milky Way bars were pinned. You are seriously THE best! And as for senior citizen…is that why I am freezing all the time? I knew there was some reason I was cold all.the.time!! And that perfume is awesome…I begged for it for my birthday this year after getting a sample in my Birchbox. I hope Michael is taking your ginormous hint ๐Ÿ™‚ I love your fun new series…I might steal some ideas to implement into my Behind the Scenes since it can’t always be about us. LOL!

  3. Fun idea for a post! Between work, my blog, general adult/human activities, and the fact that most of my friends live 30 minutes away, I just don’t get out much and talk to anyone other than my boyfriend and coworkers. So I totally get this!

  4. What a fun idea for a series, Amy! Love the Milky Way cookie bars! And the perfume… swoon!!!

  8. Love this idea for a series! Also, that spicy pulled pork sandwich has me drooling right now.

  9. I can always use a coffee break, so this is a great idea! Let me know how you fare with that bikini workout. I get bored doing the same thing all the time. I’m about to try yoga, but that means I’ll have to sit still and be calm. Ugh. I’ve had my eye on that baked taco salad, too, and figured I’d have to make it this week!

  10. What a fun post! And you can bet that if doughnuts and coffee are involved, I’m definitely gonna join coffee time with you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I could go for an oatmeal cream pie right now. I haven’t had one in ages!
