I have become one of "them."

I have “developed” Twilight themed cupcakes- fast, easy and gourmet! I made a bunch last night for our “GNO” birthday bash for Andrea & they were delicious. The movie was pretty good too… the best one so far. I only missed having “crazy” fans in our theatre. There was no one to make fun of. […]

Vine ripened tomatoes and sliced cheese, melted, with crispy bread- perfection. Try this recipe a.s.a.p. I’m gonna make some for dinner and a big tossed green salad […]

Why I am not baking- Part 1

Disclaimer: This is a long post. It all started one nice and sunny afternoon. I was driving the boys to school, innocently, minding my own business and even driving the speed limit. I usually do obey the speed limit, but I thought I’d throw that in for good measure. So on this road that we […]

Why I can't lose weight

I’ve figured out by now that I will never be a size 6, and don’t really want to be. I can’t stop baking and cooking for anything, and you have to eat what you bake. I don’t think I’d ever try a recipe where the chef didn’t eat what he/she made. That’s just plain ridiculous. […]

Are you up for a little dance with the devil?

I am going to talk about another experience with the Pioneer Woman Cooks, my new BFF in the kitchen. I made the chocolate sheet cake, and seriously, it was crazy good. You can’t have enought with just one piece, but realizing there is 1 pound of butter in the entire cake, frosting and all, my […]
