Things I Can’t Help But Love

1. That my baby sleeps through the night. He’s been doing it since he was about three months old. It is the Best. Thing. EVER.

Possibly his sleeping-through-the-night success could be attributed to this book and my efforts at establishing a general eating/sleeping pattern.

2. My new KitchenAid Professional Series 600 stand mixer (Christmas gift from John)


and the bread that’s so easy to make with it.


3. The Baby Bjorn, which makes possible doing certain things, like making and eating dinner, whilst the baby thinks he’s being bounced and cuddled. And sometimes he even falls asleep in it.


4. Special K Chocolatey Delight cereal. Whoever thought to put chocolate pieces in breakfast cereal and then market it to women as a weight-loss tool was genius. GENIUS. I could eat this stuff for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.


5. The Devil’s Trail Mix. I made this for the first time for a work function years ago, and I can’t remember how I came up with the recipe. It’s called the Devil’s Trail Mix because it’s not as healthy as real trail mix but you can’t help eating lots of it anyway.


Here’s what you put in it:

Bite-size Nutter Butter cookies
Bite-size Teddy Grahams
Bite-size Chips Ahoy cookies
Peanut M&Ms
Reeses Pieces
Cereal, such as Special K Chocolatey Delight or Reeses Peanut Butter Puffs
Chocolate chips
Peanut butter chips

Mix all together in large bowl. Either eat as is, or microwave for two minutes or until chocolate chips and peanut butter chips melt enough to slightly coat all the cookie goodness. Cool and enjoy.
