Julie and Jessica.
So this awesome blogger, Julie, has started a cooking challenge and guess what it is?
She is making a recipe from How Sweet It Is everyday for a year! She has been a great supporter of my blog for months, so if you are looking for extra reviews of some of the recipes, her site can help you out. I am confident she will only give 100% honest reviews. I’m so honored! Oh, and I sort of think this is funny since I develop recipes while laying in bed at night, while on the elliptical, and while ignoring vegetables. And I cook while wearing sweatpants from high school.
Moving right along…
Do you want to see the gluttony that occurred in my kitchen this afternoon? I made TWO batches of Better Than Crack Brownies and one large batch of chocolate chip cookies. I think I gained eighteen pounds. Fortunately (unfortunately?) everything is leaving this house tomorrow morning.
Butter and sugar only. Aka, my life elixir.
I clearly didn’t clean as I went. Does that make sense?
But I certainly practiced quality control like it was my job.
And I’ll leave you with that.

that’s so cool! you are amazing at what you do, friend! glad everyone is catching on :)
Ohmygosh, Julie sounds like such a sweetie! I’ll definitely stop by her blog to see how things are going! :-)
I die!! They look fantastic!
I did read about that – Someday I hope to be quite as cool as you. :) It most likely won’t happen though.
How fun! What a great honor! =)
That sounds awesome – and seriously, magic happens when you cream butter and sugar together.
I have only been following your blog a couple months but I really like it, and you! Now I know it was meant to be, we have the same plates! Gotta love Butler’s Pantry!
Thank you! :) And that is so funny, I get asked SO much about these plates!!
How awesome she is doing that! I like the title of your post:)
How exciting!!! What an honor…very very very cool!!! It will be so fun to watch Julie’s blog!
How awesome! I would love to do that.. but I think I may gain a few pounds making one of your recipes every single day.. he :)
Aaww, that is such a nice tribute to your blog!! Those brownies look ah-mazing, too!
Gah! That’s so fun! But what event are all the treats for?!
Half of them are going to my husband’s work for a Steeler party and the other half are for the winner of a bake sale I participated in!
Creaming butter and sugar makes me so happy.
Wow you have 365 recipes on your blog?! That a lot of volume! Very cool.
Oy my heavens, if that’s not a sign of you complete famousness, what is? HOW SWEET EATS FOR PRESIDENT! :D
Oh my gosh you crack me up. I am so not famous. But I love you.
Back atcha ;) I even sometimes know how to spell “your” instead of you. And if the president idea doesn’t float, how about Prime Minister of Australia? We’ve already got a female PM, so that barrier has been broken for you ;)
I would totally be game if that didn’t consist of me flying on a place for a million hours to get there.
Anything Oprah can do, you can do better!
That is so amazing! and what a testament to you and your recipes. THIS is what you have worked for. Congrats, Jessica!
And Julie, lmk if you need help eating any leftovers :)
There will be definitely be leftovers at some point because while I can’t wait to cook all of this…there is no way I can eat all of this!
Drooling over the peanut butter cup wrappers! Whatever recipe calls for those is heaven to me. :-)
It’s the better than crack brownies!

super cool to see Julie will be making your recipes for a year. she’s gonna be eating GOOD!
What a great idea Julie has! Those cookies and brownies look to die for! I’m not sure why you are getting rid of them, though! I would freeze them for the Super Bowl! :-)
I had to make them for my husband’s work and a bake sale winner! Ill make more for sunday. :)
My mouth is watering… Yum!
That is SO COOL!!! I can’t wait to see her cooking adventures, as I know she is going to have tons of yummy eats since your recipes are awesome!
That is really fun! You’re a celebrity!
so when i get home tonight can i just drive over for some treats? :)
Better Than Crack brownies are da bomb! Too bad they are all leaving your house tonight, but perhaps you are going where they are going! I hope so!
Eat it up girl!
She’s gonna have the best year ever!
I’m baking a batch of better than crack brownies this afternoon! They were requested by the hostess of the superbowl party I’m attending. :)
How cool is is that you’ve inspired a blogger to try all of your recipes! That’s fantastic! I can’t wait to check up on her progress.
Also, I’ll take a cookie. Or some dough. Or just some melted chocolate licked off of a spatula.
