It's happening

Release the flying pigs and bust out the parka b/c hell must have frozen…I am baking this weekend! This is seriously a real milestone for me as the closest I have come to baking in over a year is warming up a Sara Lee “just for one” brownie. Shannon and I attempted to do some holiday baking last year but after round two of the microwavable chocolate had burned, leaving the poor pretzels naked, we threw a dozen break-and-bakes in the oven and called it Christmas. Thank God my parents are so loved by so many and received boo-koos of Christmas goodies….or else Santa would have had to settle for oreos last year. (Shannon did redeem herself with yummy cookies of some kind…I redeemed myself by not putting my family through any more cooking train wrecks.)

My girlfriends and I are having a Christmas extravaganza on Sunday. We’re planning on brunching, baking and holiday movie viewing. The other girls are tackling cookies, breads and chocolate-covered goodies and I’ve been assigned the task of cupcakes. Cross your fingers for me as I channel my inner Martha Stewart (just kidding, it’s really not that serious – I will be using a cake mix a la betty crocker….why mess with perfection?)
