Aside 18 Dec

So it has been a really ridiculous amount of time since I’ve written anything on here and I don’t even have an excuse! I can’t say its because I don’t have any time because I found time to make my own tree skirt. Yes, I said make my own tree skirt. Never in a million years would I have thought those words would come out of my mouth, but here we are. I’ve also been crazy at the coffee shop getting ready for Christmas and making up lots of baskets and goodies to sell. Of course I will be providing pictures of all of this madness soon.

I need to finish wrapping christmas presents, bake and decorate cookies for teachers gifts, clean house from top to bottom, make up 20 more baskets for work, make a cake for my daughter’s 16th birthday(Christmas Eve), have a birthday party and I’m sure other stuff. I’m just now realizing I may need more than 5 or 6 days to get this all done. But hey, that’s what coffee is for right?

I will be back, hopefully very soon, with some pictures and maybe a tutorial on the tree skirt. 



So my attempt t…

2 Mar

So my attempt to get focused this week semi failed. I did however come to a decision on how I’m going to organize recipes. Instead of picking random things to make and review, I’ve decided to do a section at a time. Any guess on which one I’m starting with? Yep, you got it. Desserts. I’m also breaking that down into different categories- cakes, cookies, pies, etc & then subcategories – sugar free, low carb, gluten free, vegan, etc. I’m hoping this will help with motivation & give my project the focus it needs. This weekend I’m thinking chocolate chip cookies made with whole wheat flour and Splenda & maybe some vegan chocolate cake. I really need to stop writing about desserts now because I’m having the worst sugar craving.
