Marvelous Monday: Eclectic Whatnot

Hey, howdy hey! I'm Ruthanne from Eclectic Whatnot. I blog about um . . . eclectic . . . um, whatnot? Seriously. I'm kinda all over the place. I prefer it that way. No need to box yourself in, right? ::snort::

Let's see . . . a lil' bit about moi:

I homeschool.

I’ve been known to eat chocolate chips straight out of the bag.

I’m a compulsive baker.

I heart old, B&W movies.

I think my husband is sexy.

I also have a crush on Jack Bauer. It’s okay. My husband knows.

My drug of choice is the Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks (Grande, please).

Show tunes make me happy.

I hide behind my Nikon.

I dearly love to laugh.
Today, I want to share a super simple recipe with y'all. If you're not into lemon, then you're probably going to want to look away. My man is a chocoholic and wouldn't eat these if his life depended on it. So, I get it. I also realize that just means there's more for me. I catch on quickly. ::wink::
