This Week I Love…
January 27, 2012 § Leave a comment
birthdays and baking. Or at least that seems to be where all of my time has gone this week. For my boyfriend’s father’s birthday I made this carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. For my best friends birthday I made this Mexican chocolate tart with spiced pecans. And for family I have visiting on Monday I am making these crisp salted oatmeal white chocolate cookies, which I made about 10 days ago with mediocre results. I believe the failure came in the form of expired ingredients. My baking soda and baking powder were both about 2 years old and gave no lift to the cookies. Did you know you are supposed to replace your baking soda and baking powder every 3 months? Lesson learned. I also learned a lot from these baking tips on allrecipes, very informative! Other things I love this week include…
A cozy winter survival kit.
How clever! Turn your canning jar into a travel mug- Cuppow!
I’m not a huge fan of Star Wars or watermelon or children’s parties for that matter, but this is pretty damn cool.
I’m so hungry I could eat a [spaghetti] horse.
Treat your guests to a baked potato bar! I really like this idea.
The food lovers cleanse from Bon Appetit looks delicious! Are you surprised?
Get graphic with VioletMay.
Drinking coffee- a capital offense. I’m offended!
My love for Pinterest is growing!
