what were (are) your favorite bed time snacks?

I can't go to bed without a snack - my parents started it when I was tiny and 24 years later, it lives on - but I also don't ever eat a full meal, just many small ones throughout the day.

I'll usually have a homemade protein bar before bed to tide me over til morning, otherwise I'll wake up starving at 3am.

When I was small it was usually toast with butter, sometimes sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. Othertimes, my parents would spoil us and give my brother and I crab legs dipped in butter as a night time snack! Talk about spoiled kids!

How do you drink your milk?

Sounds just like my childhood. I used to dread seeing that glass of milk sitting on the dinner table.

It wasn't until I was older and living on my own that I started to buy and drink milk on occasion, but only by itself or with something sweet. I will still never pair milk with a savory meal.

How do you drink your milk?

I'm not a huge milk drinker, but when I do, I'm picky about it.

It has to be 1%, organic and almost room temperature.

The whole ice cubes in milk thing just baffles me.

So how do you prefer to drink a glass of milk? If at all? What fat percentage, brand, temperature, method, etc?

Cold Food

I'm just the opposite. Give me anything tomato based, lasagna, spaghetti, pizza...and I prefer it cold the next day. In fact, I really don't care for pizza at all unless its cold.

However, I want my milk room tempature. I can't handle icy milk.

How to eat a cupcake...?

Isn't cake just a vehicle to get frosting in my mouth?

Your Easter Dinner and Treats in a Basket [moved from Washington DC & Baltimore Area board]

Yum! You've got me craving Easter Candy now. I'm a total junkie for mini cadbury eggs and whopper eggs. Love that crunchy coating.

We always do brunch out then dinner with the extended family. Nothing traditional at the dinner, besides making 'Blarney Stones' for dessert. Albeit, a more St. Patrick's appropriate dessert, my Grami only made them on Easter and that tradition remains strong, and I crave them all year!

'Blarney Stones' are a super soft white sponge cake cut into squares and rolled in white icing and salted peanuts. Time consuming and messy to make, but SO good.
