Holiday “Pin Inspiration” from World Market

The Holidays are upon us and I’m online looking for gifts, as usual. I’m always stumped for gifts for certain people in my life. Along with the gift giving, I have Holiday parties to attend, baking to do, and people asking what I want for Christmas. Luckily, there’s this awesome online website called, “Pinterest”. Have […]

Project 365: Week 50

The Holidays are here! I’ve spent my free time attending various functions, baking, eating, changing into multiple outfits, and pretty much ignoring my house and laundry. I will be spending the next week cleaning, cooking, shopping, organizing, and whatever else it takes to catch up on life! Project 365 344/365: Random things at the gas […]

Cookie Exchange Party Ideas

I have been invited to two Cookie Exchange Parties during the month of December. For one of the parties, I have to bring NINE dozen cookies.  They have to be homemade and have flour in them. Yikes!!! The only family recipe that I have is for sugar cookies, the kind you frost.  I mean those […]

Happy 4th of July

Leave me alone, I’m baking

I spent over two hours at the grocery store yesterday buying supplies for my baking extravaganza.  I can bake, when I want to.  Right now, I’m motivated.  Unfortunately, I did not check my cupboards very well and I kept second guessing myself.  This is my usual protocol as I seem to have three brand new […]

Making Rainbow Cupcakes

I think I shocked my family and friends last night when I posted pictures of the cupcakes last night on my Facebook account.  There was quite some shock and awe going.  I can pretty much follow a recipe, if I like it. As a toddler would say, “I just don’t want to.” But really, my […]
