Sunday

I keep asking...


Every year I tell my family that I want one of these mixers that I don't have to stand and hold. I even promise them that I would make them more cakes. For some reason, they don't believe me. Ha ha... they lose. If they were smart, they would grab one while it's on sale. And I was serious about the part about making them more cakes lol...

I want to make killer pies!


I'm definitely not very good at it, but wouldn't it be really cool to have someone say that you make "killer pies"!! There's something to work toward next year lol...

Friday

Go Pot Luck

I just received an email from my son's girlfriend. She wanted to know what she and her Mom can bring for Christmas dinner. From what I can tell, the two of them will be making our day a lot easier! If you have a lot of people coming to your house, you might want to suggest something along this line! It will make it easier on everyone!

Thursday

Happy Happy

I will be thinking about all of you guys down there (south of me) Thanksgiving is long gone for me... about a month ago but I'm going to pretend that your Thanksgiving is mine too. Sure beats going to the dentist. Yes, that's where I'm headed in about an hour.

New Emile Henry Artisan Ruffled Pie Dish


With a pie dish that looks this good, does it really matter what goes into the pie?? Yeah, probably, but I plan on blowing my guests away by the sheer look of the dish that they won't even noticed how simple dessert really is.

Saturday

Personalized Gingerbread Manor


So, what's the chances that you could make something that looks half this good. Not much chance?? Well that's what Williams-Sonoma is thinking too. Is there one thing about this Gingerbread House... sorry, Manor that isn't perfect??

I think that I would want to spray it or something so that I could use it again next year! It's kind of a shame to toss it when January rolls around!

Tuesday

Just Stuff The Bread In!


When we were in England a couple of years ago, I saw a "crock" just like this and so wanted to bring it home. Just one problem, it was about twice the size of this and I hadn't a clue how I would get it home. And then there was the problem of what to do with it when I got it home. Not like our conventional bread bins lol

I might not like to cook all that much, but this stockpot sure would look impressive on my stove! I would even keep it shiny lol...
