tow-head messes
I found a new recipe this weekend on pinterest that I had to try.  So, I brought it to my office pumpkin carve tonight.  It was delicious, it's really bad for you, but really good.  
I decided on Thursday night that I was going to bake holiday treats for the neighbors this year.  I would say that I love baking, and I do, but I HATE the clean up.  So that automatically takes me from love to like.  My baking experience this weekend was delightful.  I'm not just saying that because I feel like a real-life Betty Crocker right now, I'm saying it because I had no major issues, malfunctions, fires, or misread of directions.  I started Friday afternoon, took a break for Zumba class, made dinner, and finished up with round one around 11 pm.  Got up Saturday morning, hoping to clean, but again - was ready to bake. So I did.  I think most of my success is based on my decision not to bake completely from scratch.  I had the help of Betty Crocker.  I used their cookie mixes, and they saved me tons of time.  I used the mix and added on!  Oh and the cake balls were something new and fun and I can't wait to make more.
