Hey there, I know it may seem like I haven't been #baking and taking #pictures much. Maybe I haven't been doing enough. A few months ago my life was turned upside down and I have been struggling to figure out what the right thing to do is. My mom says that I tend to jump into things without thinking them through. I'm not entirely sure that is true, I do think things through, using my brain to rationalize everything but, there is such a thing as overthinking which I tend to d
It has been awhile since I have been able to create a new blog post. Now that our state Governor has issued a stay at home order due to the #Coronavirus, I've got a little bit of time on my hands. So besides trying to start a fire in my fireplace which I cannot seem to do and waiting until 1 o'clock to video chat with my coworker, I'm also #baking and #blogging. Keep in mind that I can't bake a lot, since the stores seem to be low on flour these days. You won't see many of
Last weekend I #baked some #Lemon Cupcakes with "Yellow" Lemon #Buttercream icing. I could not wait to get home from work to ice these #cupcakes after #baking them the day before. I knew I would have everything I needed at home to make the icing, but after pulling everything out. I realized that I did not have enough powdered sugar. Sally's usual recipe calls for 4 cups of powdered sugar and I really only had 3 cups available. I just cut the icing recipe in half and dumped a
It is true, #Halloween is creeping up on me and I feel like I need to #bake something quick! So, I saw this cute quick halloween #snack for Halloween Chocolate Bark over on Sally's Bake Blog. Sally's recipes are so good and easy to follow. However, I do not follow directions very well or so it seems. Mistake number one, when picking up chocolate #baking bars from the store, make sure you pick up "semi-sweet" chocolate and not the unsweetened #chocolate, there is a huge differ
These days I've been traveling all over. Hopefully my car can keep up with me. I dropped my mom off at Kent Narrows, #Maryland to meet her sister for lunch and so that she could visit with her sister for a few days. We had lunch together at Fisherman's Inn. They have changed and updated their menu, so if you have not been there in awhile; you should check it out. Anyway, I picked my mom up at the same place two days later, what a drive 2 hours up and 2 hours back. I went hous
I went to an old standby today. It is #Sunday and after a busy and hectic week of working at the #library during the #Summer Reading Program, getting new tires for my car and getting an oil change, I wanted something quick and easy to bake. What's your favorite go to #dessert for something quick and easy? I'm planning to take these #cookies, if my husband doesn't eat them all first, to my sister in law's house for dessert. I did something a little different with the cookies.
I'm a peanut butter lover and I've just #baked the most delicious chewy peanut butter #cookies ever! These are so good that my husband, who absolutely hates peanut butter, is coming into the kitchen every so often to sneak 2 or 3 back to the bedroom to eat. I cannot believe it, even he loves them. This is a roll over in your grave kind of shocker. Everyone knows I love peanut butter. I've had many occasions where my coworkers have given me #Reeses peanut butter cups over the
