As promised, here is one of the cupcake recipes I used for Ben’s graduation party. A cupcake buffet is not complete without a chocolate cupcake, and I decided to use Williams-Sonoma’s recipe from their website. I noticed that a few other food bloggers like the Williams-Sonoma recipes, so I figured I couldn’t go wrong. Well, […]
Wow.. time flies. I still need to add my recipes for the cupcakes from Ben’s party, but before I do that, I realized I have not yet posted about a give-away I won a few months ago! Yes… I said a few months ago… yikes. I stumbled across another food blog, and just in time! […]
With Ben’s graduation, our vacation, my Wilton class, volleyball, visits from friends and family… I was not able to do this month’s Daring Baker’s challenge. Take a look at the Daring Baker’s blogroll to see everyone’s creations. The recipe this month was Opéra Cake.
We’re back from our vacation and now I need to catch up on some posting! Hilton Head was awesome and it was definitely hard to leave… but now it’s back to reality. The reason we took this vacation was to celebrate Ben’s graduation. He finished his doctorate in Biblical Theology at Wheaton College that he’s […]
I won’t be posting again for a while. We are on vacation in Hilton Head Island, SC. It’s beautiful here! We left Saturday and will return home either next Sunday or Monday (Memorial Day). I meant to post about my absence before we left, but didn’t find the time…so now while I’m waiting for Ben […]
From 10 am to 10 pm enjoy a free iced coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts in assorted flavors. Read more about it here. And, don’t forget that on the same day (May 15) McDonald’s is offering their Southern Style chicken sandwich and breakfast biscuit for free with the purchase of a drink.
I just got home from my last Wilton Cake Decorating Course 1 class. It’s been a fun four weeks. We learned the rest of the Wilton rose and how to make leaves and vines today. I definitely need to practice a lot more!
(Click photo to read article) Our Wheaton/Glen Ellyn Glancer magazine magazine, published monthly, featured me as the “Lovable Local” in their May issue! My friend, Jamie, from Memories Illustrated called me and told me the article was published. After going a few days without receiving my copy in the mail, Jamie gave me her’s then […]
I signed up with a co-worker, Margie, to take the Wilton cake decorating (level 1) class this month at Joann Fabrics. It’s a four-week class and teaches the basics of cake decorating, making your own decorating icing, and creating the famous Wilton flower. Easy peasy, right? Well…almost. Once we get to class, it’s fun and […]
McDonald’s now has a chicken sandwich that is very comparable to Chick-Fil-A! Since we do not have Chick-Fil-A anywhere near us, we were extremely anxious to try out this new Southern-Style Chicken Sandwich. We went through Wheaton’s drive-thru yesterday after church, ordered our sandwiches, then noticed an unbelievable sign on the window that said: “Tuesday, […]
