    totally. :\ that's why i give them all away. i usually eat 1/2 of one for quality control and gift the remaining.

    that's kind of funny...i know it's not meant to be, but it really is. why'd everyone stop singing?!

  4. Baking (and cooking?)

    i know you guys are probably so sick of seeing these pictures, but MEH! here are some cupcakes I made this weekend. They're just vanilla bean cupcakes. The pink frosting is vanilla bean buttercream and the yellow is leftover lemon buttercream from last weekend's baking expedition. please excuse the fake flower....the photo needed something. i took these pics. kurt thinks i should be able to do it on my own...since i'm a big girl and whatnot. i'm not entirely convinced, although i think they turned out alright. typically i stage the food, and i think that's kind of the hard part? maybe i'm wrong.

  7. Baking (and cooking?)

    i collect old books, and i just thought it would look neat. *shrug* i just pulled a few off the shelf, not paying too much attention to which i was choosing. the only one i put thought into was chaucer, and that is just because of the size and color of the book.

    Lemon spritz with lemon buttercream: bought that milk bottle today at an antique store. it is old as dirt...and shows that quite well. oh well.
  17. Good News Thread!

    i always giggle when colored condoms are used. not that there is any need for that sine we're married now. but before. the glow in the dark made me laugh and laugh.

    quote: Originally posted by Anthony Minsky: Yeah, I thought so. I have such fond memories of that state. I wish I was there now actually. My father was still alive back then. I know that is incredibly sad, but he was the funniest person I've ever known. He could be irritating like anyones dad, but he could make me laugh from my gut. Like a hardy har har kind of laugh. For instance he went to high school in Portland Oregon and was the first to ever be impeached as a vice president. They caught him gambling in the bathroom. The story is so unbelievably funny. Wow!! do I miss him. what a great memory! keep it close to your heart and there he'll always be. <3

  22. Baking (and cooking?)

    well milwaukee's your typical city, but my folks live near the UP...about 4.5 hours north, and it's beautiful up there. you can see the stars at night. clean air, clean water. it's nice.

    quote: Originally posted by Anthony Minsky: quote: Originally posted by SugarDrive: i love you guys. really. i think it's great sharing this stuff with you!! also...lemon drizzle cake?! yum. i'm going to make lemon sandwich cookies this weekend. so much can be said for lemon. mmmmmmmmm. perhaps i should plant a lemon tree. wait....can they grow in Wisconsin? **scurries off to research** I love lemon anything. If lemons don't prove the existence of god, I don't know what does. Oh settle down. I'm just kidding, I'm sure they got here by chance just like the brain. whaaaa!! I think if you look back in to the archives, it is Regina herself who started this subject. The woman loves life, and food is a big part of it. Anyone have a good Banana Bread Recipe?. I have two brown ones, an old apple, and some other kitchen staples. I've made Banana bread twice. Both times it comes out tasty but light brown. My mother-in-law makes it and it is always dark brown. I asked her why the other day and she didn't know why. Whaaaaaat!?? Why wouldn't she know why? Mine are always light. Her's are always dark. i made a tasty peanut butter chocolate chip banana bread. i can share that, but you'll need 3 bananas.
