3 Minute S'mores Recipe

If you're a fellow Family Guy fan, you surely remember the episode where Peter and Bill Clinton have the munchies and talk about stealing and eating a pig. It went something along the lines of "We could totally eat that pig, man. It could be in our stomachs in, like, a minute." People, these smores are your one minute pig.

If you're not a fellow Family Guy fan, I've surely just lost you forever as a reader here. Sorry.

These are perfect when you're craving a quick, sugary treat. They work equally well in a toaster oven and a convection oven. Best of all, compared to eating an entire bag of Oreos (something I've never done...wink, wink), they're quite healthy.

 Step 1: Put desired amount of graham crackers on a toaster oven/convection oven-safe pan.
 
Looks like it's time to clean this pan, Sexy Nerd

Optional 1st step, which is Sexy Nerd's favorite: Spread peanut butter on each graham cracker. I'm not much of a peanut butter fan so I skip this step.

Cover with yummy mini marshmallows.


Top with chocolate chips. Sprinkle on a dusting of sea salt.


Place in the toaster oven on the lowest setting, or the convection oven at 275 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep an eye on them. They go from not quite done to overdone insanely fast! About 3 minutes usually does the trick.

How did that marshmallow get there?? Ah, the mysteries of a convection oven.

I've got my one minute pig right here.

I could press each half together into a traditional smore, but then I would only have one.

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

A Handy "Before & After" Guide to Chemical Peels - 6/25/17 Update
Since writing my chemical peel blog review back in 2013, I've had quite a few Jessner peels (my favorite) and TCA peels. However, I've saved a ton of money over the past 6 months by doing my own chemical peels at home. At my last professional peel, I made a note of the product being used and did some research when I got home. I was able to buy the exact same one, Dermalure Jessner Solution Acid Peel 14%, from Amazon for less than the cost of a single peel. I also use Dermalure's AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser. (Apply this before the Jessner.) It's self-neutralizing, despite what the Amazon listing says, and couldn't be simpler. That said...
I'm not sure I'd recommend this to a chemical peel newbie, as you're already nervous enough the first time without the added worry of doing it yourself, but it's so convenient (and cost effective!) once you're comfortable with the chemica…

Dream Home Dreaming

*Update*
We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design. See below for details.

Original post from 2013:

Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?

Ultra-modern??

The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:

...a dramatic front entrance...
