Unfortunately I won’t be in the kitchen baking anything this weekend. I sprained a muscle in my foot last night and can’t walk at all today. I really wish I had a cool story about how it happened but I was actually just cooking dinner. I know, lame.
I’ve been busy at work this past week so I didn’t have much time for baking. We’re trying to hire a new person and I have been spending a lot of time reading resumes and doing phone interviews. I thought with the job market the way it is we would be receiving a ton of outstanding resumes. However, with resumes from emails like “playa4eva”, “sexykitten857″, and all the misuses of “their”, “there”, and “they’re”, it’s been a lot harder than I thought. The emails REALLY bug me. I mean seriously people, you’re applying for a job in the medical field, not a strip club–GET A PROFESSIONAL EMAIL!
Moving on, my husband and I will be road tripping it to Florida next week to watch his brother’s college baseball games. I have been wanting a camera bag to take with us when we travel but, unfortunately, I have expensive taste and Ryan won’t let buy the $250 bag I want. So, I scoured the internet for a cheap alternative and was so excited when I found the pattern for this camera bag insert. It’s a padded rectangle holder with moveable velcro dividers that fits inside an existing purse!
Purse on the outside….
Camera bag on the inside!
Yes, I know it involves sewing but it’s super easy and even I was able to make it with my extremely limited sewing skills. It also allows for a bit more flexibility since you can change up which purse to put it in. The insert is big enough for my DSLR camera and 2 lenses–I LOVE it!!!
And, if you’re not the sewing type I’ve seen some inserts for sale on Etsy.
Well you probably won’t hear from me until after Easter so I hope you all have a very blessed Easter!
I haven’t made bread in several months and it decided it was time to switch out our normal wheat bread for something different. This loaf is made in a bread machine so it comes together without much effort at all–perfect for the lazy baker in all of us.
For Christmas, my husband and I received a can of Spiced Pecan Pumpkin Pancake Mix from Williams-Sonoma. I only used the mix once to make pancakes, and while I thought they tasted fairly good, my husband didn’t like them. As you already know, I have issues with just throwing things away, so I decided to use the mix to make muffins and cookies.
These cookies were the result of a mistake.
I just finished the second course in the Wilton cake decorating series. For my final cake I decided to make a peanut butter cake. I really just made the recipe up as I went along and wasn’t expecting it to turn out.
