Apparently a lot of things in first grade are settled via dance-off

Only a week left in August and I still haven't tackled the categories of Pies, Candy, Pancakes/Waffles, Sweets, or Snacks. So, it's going to be a pretty great last week of August, is what I'm saying.

Category: "Appetizers" aka "Things To Take To Book Club." Recipe: Pepperjack Pull Bread.

As the recipe says, "it's like a bread version of nachos." I can think of no stronger recommendation than that.

Category: "Frozen Desserts." Recipe: Honey Roasted Peach Buttermilk Ice Cream.

I don't actually like frozen chunks of fruit in my ice cream, but somehow I managed to eat this anyway.

I'm no hero, any of you would have done the same

Category: "Donuts." Recipe: Chocolate Strawberry Donuts.

The six-year-old was not fooled by these at all. "This is healthy chocolate," she said, crestfallen.

Not once we piled some whipped cream on top!
