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

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…

Baby No More, Baby Magic is FOUR!

Like seriously, where did the time go?

She was just a wee little thing yesterday! Now she is sassy, independent and full of honesty. Like FULL of honesty. She knows nothing about your feelings so she doesn't give 2 cents about hurting them. The kid just tells it like it is. And I hope she never changes.

I decided not to have a party this year. But guess what? It turned into a party anyway! Friends don't let friends eat cake alone apparently! It was awesome! The night before I baked her cake. She refused to go to sleep so I let her decorate some of the extra cupcakes. She insisted on licking ALL the frosting when we were done. When she finally went to sleep, I hand pumped what seemed like a thousand balloons - and my carpal tunnel is still yelling at me about it. I put the balloons on the floor in her room so she would be surprised when she woke up. She was! She woke up singing "Mommy, it's morninggggg, it's my birthdayyyyyyyy!" She's so stinking cute!
