Really?

Can you really make a delicious cupcake with only 2 ingredients...? I wasn't convinced... Yes, I've seen all the post on Pintrest that show how you can make everything from cup cakes to brownies out of nothing but a store bought boxed mix and a can of soda pop. But I wasn't sure... what would it taste like? ... would it rise? ... can you believe everything you read on the Internet?

We have a Friday Family Dinner with friends on alternating Fridays... I love to bake and always like to take a cool dessert for us to share. One of our friends is off of dairy right now while she nurses her new born, So finding desserts that don't have dairy can be a challenge... to add to that, another friend has recently found out she is allergic to CHOCOLATE... can you believe it!! So when you take out dairy AND chocolate, dessert choices can get pretty slim... so here's where I had to reconsider this 2 ingredient recipe and just go for it!

It's strawberry season here in our neck of the woods, so I thought I'd try a strawberry cake mix with a diet Sprite... it was supper easy and really foamy! I placed it in the muffin tin and into the oven, still wondering if it would turn out right or if I'd have to toss the pan away in the end!


 As you can see they turned out looking fine...and really PINK! I used a tub of cream cheese frosting (for our non-dairy friend) In the end I placed strawberries on them... they turned out great~ Very moist and very tasty and very Weight Watchers friendly (well, minus the tub of frosting!... use fat free cool whip instead)


 I was quite pleased with the success of the strawberry cake mix ones... and happening to have a chocolate craving while baking (surprise right?!)... I raided the pantry to find a chocolate cake mix... paired it with a Cherry Dr. Pepper... Must say, it is my new favorite! ...

So maybe you can believe SOME things on the internet!

Thought I had Quit....

You guys thought I had died... I know... Well... I wish I had a story to tell that would explain my lax of posting to this blog... Other than to say life has gotten in the way. Cute kitties, baking, cycling and work have all consumed most of my free time. What few minutes I had to myself were spent with my eyes closed hoping no one would need me for anything! But I'm back and am going to give it another try. I have had lots of projects in the craft room to share so there's no lack of content... just lack of free time to share! Here's some random photos from the last few months... and check back soon... I'm working on a craft post! This boy KNOWS how to nap! Off on new adventures! This one LOVES to help! ... and he's pretty nosey! what a tummy! I love all things snowflake-y! trying to decide if the bag is for his guest... or HIM! cruising to visit family...  on an adventure! my fi

Cricut magic

I am really enjoying my Cricut. This year I’ve made all kinds of cool things with it, cards, banners, tags, stencils, snowflakes… But my favorite thing so far has to be a gift I made for my sister for Christmas this year! My sister is quite the baker and takes her treats all over town, to others to enjoy, whether its the girls meeting or a family dinner, she likes to share her confections with everyone. I had come across a Pin that showed the etched bottom of a glass 9x13 pan and thought that would be cute to make for her… But the more I thought about it the more I talked myself out of making it. The 9x13 would limit her to using it for brownies or dump cakes (which she does bake these) but I wanted to do something special for her cakes and cupcakes … Then, Inspiration hit while enjoying a leisurely stroll through my local Michael's Craft store… I came across a display of Wilton cake carriers and then it hit me… why not use the Cricut to personalize it with Beth’s name using th

introducing new additions to the family

To those that don’t know me too well might think that this blog title means there’s going to be tiny little feet running around our house soon, and you’d be half right … and those that do know me will know that this means that those tiny little feet are actually paws! A dear friend ours came home from trip to Texas to find the little kitten (of about 9 months) she left in the care of her husband and 3 sons was prego! I’m not saying her husband is to blame, in his defense those 3 sons are a handful!! She let me know that if we were ready to be kitty parents again we had first pick of the litter… well, as it turns out I might have been the hold up all this time for us to jump into pet parent-hood. Mike has all for it! So I told her that we would claim 2 of the little bundles when they made their appearance… then we waited for them to be born… April 19th around 5 in the evening I got the first text that the little ones were on the way! Our friend is an experienced animal person so she ha
