A Sprinkle of Sugar

Oh I’m so in LOVE!!!

A few months ago I purchased myself a Kitchen Aid stand mixer…and today I finally broke it free from the jail of a box it was held captive in! OMG! I don’t know what I was waiting on! Anyone that knows me knows just how much I love to cook. Baking has never been my thing, but I’m getting into it more and more. I’ve surprised myself with some of the creations that have managed to come out of my oven.

Well, this mixer makes it so much easier! I’ve had inferior mixers before and always ended up reverting to a hand mixer…but not this time! While the mixer was a bit pricey, today it has proved to already be worth it. I made the best butter cream icing I think I've ever had!

Revival starts at my church tomorrow and I was pegged to bring desserts. While most people undoubtedly just head to the bakery at their local supermarket, I had absolutely no plans and was ambitious enough to make everything...from scratch!
So what all did I make? A carrot cake, oatmeal raisin cookies, chocolate chip cookies, another cookie that I made up, red velvet cupcakes and another cupcake that was supposed to be red velvet but tastes more chocolaty.

While I have yet to construct my own recipes {Food Network saves me} I see it in my near future as I have some spare time on my hands [I finally finished my MBA-YAY]. I have even thought of a name for my bakery J! Well it would probably be more of a cafĂ© that serves small bites and tasty treats…maybe my dear friend Tamela and I could partner up…{hint, hint}.

Now for the magic question…What on Earth am I supposed to do with all this leftover butter cream icing?!
I'm taking donations from anyone wanting to donate so I can get some of the cool attachments!!

As my aching feet are screaming at me to be soaked…I will conclude this post.

Sending all my love and Chocolate Kisses

XOXO

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July 21st...no scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
