{October 28, 2012}   The Almost Disaster

Today-well right now-I’m making whoopie pie cookie…everything was going great until the flour. I had the wonderful luck of not having a clean 1 cup measuring cup, so I had to use the 1/2 cup measuring cup, no big deal, 2.5 cups is just 5 half cups…well I lost count and since I couldn’t remember put another half cup in…I’m mixing it in and the “dough” in the bowl looks awfully dry…here’s the almost disaster. I mixed in the salt and the baking powder, I paused however before putting in the grated apples, these were my only apples and I don’t feel like leaving the house. So I pulled the bag of flour out of the pantry and measured the flour again…it confirmed that the amount of flour in the mixing bowl was correct so I continued mixing in ingredients and the first sheet of cookies are in the oven.

Fingers crossed they’ll turn out okay.


{October 25, 2012}   Nightmare Before Christmas

I was recently introduced to Nightmare Before Christmas and while I’m not addicted to it like my bestie, I did find it funny and laugh when I see it around town and the interwebs. Here are some of the food “omnoms”, “wows”, “OMGs”, “IWANNAMAKETHEMs”:




Another Cake: OMG


Cookies from Tumblr, I tried to find who originally posted them but couldn’t.



Cupcakes: omnom


Cupcakes: omnom


So yeah…tasty foods.



First food related post! *excited squeal*

{October 24, 2012}   Wheee! A new blog!

I’m a total newbie at this. Yesterday I was talking with my mom while we went hiking that afternoon and my dream of owning and running a bakery came up…and now I’m starting this wonderful, probably ignored cooking/food blog.

I’m going to try and post something-anything-twice a month. It will be food related. I may start with just spamming WordPress with drool inducing pictures of food I didn’t make before I take the plunge and post my own cooking disasters…..okay they’re not that bad.

Wish me luck… I’m going to need it.
