Shot to the heart.

It’s no secret that I don’t shine in the kitchen.  But, when John Henry told me this, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

Me:  John Henry, do you want me to make your Transformers birthday cake?

John Henry:  Can you?

Me:  I can try.

John Henry:  Well.  Okay, but get daddy to help you.  He’s good at making stuff.

It’s as if he’s never tasted my Kraft mac & cheese.

Of course, my cake would probably end up posted here.

I’ve had the pleasure to attend a bible study on Tuesday mornings with some really cool ladies.  She, like, makes breakfast treats for us from scratch.  Then, she brought cute, little homemade muffins this past Tuesday.  I hope they all still love me when I pick up bagels from the bagel shop one day.  ‘Cause they will be bought with love.  Just like Christ bought us with love.  Not to compare purchasing breakfast items with God’s redemption of mankind.  Anyhoo.

How are your skills in the kitchen?  Wanna share a favorite cool weather meal, treat, or recipe?

Talk about taking the cake!

My friend, Jennifer Doss, takes the cake.  No, really.  She does!  Her business is cleverly called, “She Takes the Cake”, and boy does she ever.  So, if you are livin’ in the metro Atlanta area, and want some tasty treats, let me know.  I can hook you up. 

Now, my other friend, Jennifer – this Jennifer – sent this link to me yesterday.  There is a blog totally dedicated to cakes gone bad….really bad.  It provided quite the entertainment for me yesterday.  I think you’ll find that it does the same for you.

Enjoy.  It’s worth the click.


Have you ever had a baking project go bad?
