Easter Baking

This year I have found a love for baking... I love trying out new stuff, working to make it look better and of course enjoying the eating of those scrumptious items.  In the fall, I began to learn pies and supplied the family Thanksgiving celebration with pies.  I may have went overboard wanted to make sure there were plenty of options so there were 7 pies for 20 people.  Christmas was a repeat but with less pies (due to the amount of teasing I got for so many) and then of course someone said, "but you didn't make the pie I wanted!" Really? Than no more harassing me! Lately cupcakes and home-made cakes have been what I have been dabbling in and I can't quite decide what to take to Easter (I'm in charge of desserts again!)

Although I have no idea what to make, so I've been scouring my favorite foodie/baking blogs and have found some fun ideas....

Candied Easter Popcorn (I think the kiddos will love this one!)IMG_4130


Easter Candy Bark


And of course I love a good white cup-cake... there's just something about it, with home-made buttercream of course...White Cupcakes Recipe


Oh and I found this Funfetti Cake Batter recipe... Yes Please!


So anywho's I better decide today what I'm making so I can stock up on ingredients and get to baking Thursday AM!

What to Blog About?

I have remained rather silent on the blog front and have mainly read other's blogs (which I greatly enjoy). Lately, I have really been wanting to get to actually blogging, in the past I struggled because as my Dad used to say I sometimes get diarrhea of the mouth (crude right?).  Nonetheless, its pretty true.  The only problem with this is I don't want my thoughtlessness to affect my Hubs.  So I will be blogging and trying to slightly (only slightly) monitor/edit my thoughts/writings.

So now the thought is, what in the world do I do with this blog?  Well, currently I'm about 4 weeks from graduating from Grad school, about to look for a new job, doggie paddlin' to keep my head above water and trying to loose weight.  I have already lost 11lbs. While that is exciting, I have not lost much weight over the last few weeks, thus I am looking to spur on my weight loss and will take you along in my journey.  More to come later, Hope you're all having a Wonderful Wednesday!
