Time well wasted...two hours in the kitchen and the cupcakes and icing where disgusting.
It was the dried fruit that ruined the cupcakes. The icing was a flop and I don't know what I did wrong there. It looked deceivingly good.
I've developed the attitude not to get frustrated. It's not a rare event that this happens.
My baking and cooking skills are a work in progress.
As a stay at home mom I don't do the cooking. Like hardly ever. I'm what Daddy calls his Sous-Chef. I'll clean up after him and pour him his wine.
My sister and I try as we may are far from being the next Rachel Ray. Lucky for us we married husbands who cook pretty darn good. I think both of our men figured out early that they better get in the kitchen.
Last week, I aced the banana cookie recipe my sister emailed me. James said it 3 times when he ate the first cookie, "Yummy!" I swear it sounded like he was pleasantly surprised.
Maybe I'm being paranoid.
