Cinnamon Rolls, Cheesecakes & Cup Cakes
Typically you can tell what kind of mood I'm in based on how many baked goods are in the house. When I'm sad or stressed, there are generally 0 tasty treats available. When I'm happy, it's sickening how many things you need to polish off before they go stale.
There is something so "zen" about baking, watching the mixer combine all the ingredients, kneading dough, smelling the goodness in the air as the oven magically transforms your pile of dough, into a masterpiece.
I frequently make cupcakes for my husbands work. He works for a local coffee roaster, in the warehouse. I will say I love sending the treats, because it fluffs my ego. And lets face it, we could all use a little ego fluffing every now an then! I've made Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes, Peppermint Mocha, Eggnog, Snickerdoodle with Apple Cider ( freshly pressed at his work) buttercream frosting! .....Is your mouth watering yet? Cause mine is!
I have a Pinterest addiction. It's ok, I know the first step of admitting you have a problem, is well.....accepting that you're an addict. But I'm not a quitter!! I'll keep on pinning. I love seeing all the fun, yummy goodies I can make, and plan on making in the future.
Many of my traditions and memories include baking. The smells of fresh bread, cinnamon rolls, cheesecakes, pies.
If I had the resources I would totally open my own little cart, or cafe. Sell yummy treats to the masses. Sell the coffee from my hubby's work. How awesome would that be?!
If you'd like to donate some funds to my dream, they will be greatly accepted. Go ahead and contact me for my information and mailing address!
I'm just kidding......kind of!
