There is no order to this madness, so things will get posted in whatever order I come around to doing it in. I did forget one ingredient that I will probably grab later tonight when I go do some shopping.
I’m always here to answer your questions, so don’t be shy!!
Thanksgiving is a huge deal when you have a huge family. And I do mean huge. Geo is one of 12 kids..and most of those kids have their own kids now.
Thanksgiving is basically a large production in that house. There is the dining room table, and then they have to set up 2 more tables….some people sit on the couch (like we did last year) and someone always spills gravy. There are kids everywhere and you basically have to be drunk (Did I mention the 12 bottles of wine?) to deal with all of the people around.
My family, on the other hand, starts cooking 2 days before and then squishes around the dining room table. Someone makes perverted jokes, my sister eats her own weight in stuffing, my mommy always forgets something, and my daddy makes fun of her for it.
This was a really drawn out way of telling you guys that I start my Thanksgiving prep-work today, one whole day ahead of schedule. (only because I have to close the store on Wednesday night) I will be posting our (yes, our) creations throughout the next week, so bear with me.
As always, I am here for questions and advice.
If I don’t talk to you guys before Thursday, have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving. Be safe, and remember, this is the one day a year where you can eat too much and get away with it!
Hi! I just wanted 2 say I really love this blog & think its beautiful Thank u :) I also wanted 2 let u know that God loves u more than anything He sent His Son Jesus so we could have forgiveness thru Him & be forgiven of our sins Jesus said that He came to "give us life & life more abundantly" John 10:10 He also said that He is the only "way, the truth, & the life" John 14:6 But the good news is He loves u more than anything & is waiting 4 u 2 call on Him today No one is 2 far away for rescue :)
Thank you to the followers who stuck around. You guys rock!
I am making some changes!
The name is staying the same, but we are moving in a different direction. Yes, I will still post yumminess, so don’t be sad!
My idea is simple: Use my cooking/baking skills for good instead of evil. I am going to share my kitchen adventures with you along the way. Not to mention I am going to do some baking colabs with some awesome friends and family.
I will ABSOLUTELY still be taking “how-to” questions, so please, do not hesitate to ask me absolutely anything you are wondering about (cooking-wise, of course)
So again, Thanks for sticking with me. I hope you guys enjoy the new look and I cant wait to here from you!
I know but I thought I dont know i Guess if I'm mentally going to hell in a handbasket I might as well try to look good. Diets and exercise haven't worked for me. She lost a whole bunch of weight and now she has a boyfriend so I feel like now I have a standard to live up to :( I miss her and she doesn't even care
I am posting this publicly for a reason. I know this will go to my baking blog, but truthfully, I don’t care.
Anyone out there who thinks that they need to be skinny to look good is seriously warped. I will openly tell ALL OF YOU that I wear a size 16 and weigh 191 lbs. Sorry, but I don’t find myself all that unattractive. Granted, I have lost about 80 lbs, but I did it the healthy way.
If you are going to starve yourself, you deserve the fucking sickness that comes along with it. You need help. I am here to help you, but you have to want it.
As for your friend, if she quit talking to you because she lost weight, she is no friend at all. And you saying that YOU feel like you have a standard to live up to…well…that is YOUR problem. If she said nothing to make you feel that way you have no one to blame but yourself.
I love you, but you have to knock this un-healthy self loathing bullshit off.
Now I will watch as I lose followers. Have a nice day.
Maybe something that's kinda easy to make perhaps? X
All you will need is a box of white cake mix, a pack of oreos and a batch of your favorite frosting.
Mix up the cake mix like the box says and crunch up a bunch of the Oreos and throw them in there. You can turn this into cupcakes or just bake it in a regular cake pan per the package instructions. When the cake or cupcakes are done, just frost it and put some more crunched up Oreos on there.
i love cupcakes! [: i just had a rather delicious red velvet cupcake from starbucks. do you have a recipe for red velvet cupcakes?
A…Hello George’s cousin.
B…Red Velvet is my FAVORITE!! Of course I do!!!
1/2 cup shortening
1 teaspoon butter flavoring 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 large eggs, at room temperature 1 tablespoon red paste food coloring (it is IMPORTANT to use the paste) (I used Wilton’s) 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 1 cup buttermilk 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 tablespoon white vinegar 2 1/2 cups sifted cake flour
Preheat oven to 350º. Line cupcake pan with papers OR grease and flour.
In a large bowl, cream together shortening and butter flavoring with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth. Gradually add sugar and beat until mixture is light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a small bowl, combine red food coloring and cocoa powder to make a paste. Add to sugar mixture. In another bowl, combine buttermilk, salt, baking soda, and vinegar. Add to sugar mixture, beating until just combined. Slowly add flour to sugar mixture, beating until just combined.
Ladle batter into prepared pans, dividing equally. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. Let cupcakes cool for 10 minutes in pans. Invert onto cooling racks and let cool completely.
Cream Cheese Frosting: 1 cup butter, at room temperature 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened 8 cups sifted powdered sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring 2 teaspoons butter flavoring (I prefer Wilton’s clear flavorings)
In a large bowl, cream together butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth. Gradually add confectioners’ sugar, beating until smooth. Stir in flavorings.
It has been said that the five basic taste groups for a human tongue are sweet, sour, bitter, salty and umami.
So, if you had to pick one of those groups tastes to eliminate, which would it be and why?
Oh wow…this is a really good freaking question!!.
I mean…if I HAD to pick, probably sour. I really do enjoy the taste of lemons and limes..things of that nature and it might be nice to enjoy them without my face turning inside out.
