We Had Ribs and then We Had Pancakes!

After a LONG week of working, working and more working, you know what I LOVE? Staying home on a Saturday doing nothing but EATING! Go ahead, call me a lazy pig...oink oink! I did manage to do some baking though in between the eating but later on that. We also discovered a new find at the grocery store, Tony Roma's Ribs. I was skeptical at first because I've never had much luck with restaurant branded food at home but I thought I'd try them out since they were on super sale. OMG, those ribs were amazing! I baked them in the oven and they came out super moist and tender. I also brushed a bit more BBQ sauce on top during the last 10 minutes since we like everything super saucy. I'm not sure I remember exactly what the ribs from Tony Roma's tasted like (it's been a while) but these were definitely restaurant-quality to say the least! MUST STOCK UP! Served with mashed potatoes (another store-bought wonder) and it was a fancy shmancy dinner at home!

Of course, because an entire rack of ribs wasn't enough food, we got hungry and decided to make Blueberry Pancakes for dessert (with fried eggs). YUM...FULL...

Now onto the baking part...I have been wanting to make Candy Corn Cookies for a LONG time and finally got down to making them. I think I was intimidated because there were a few more steps than I'm used to plus chilling time but you know what? They were SUPER easy and actually a lot of FUN to make! These are definitely going into my Halloween Goodies Bags!

A Couple of Cards

Here are a couple of recent cards I made for my lil cousin and my mom-in-law's bdays. (Can you guess which one goes to who? LOL) I'm entering the Sweet 16 one into ABC Challenge's National Children's Day. Well, I guess 16 still counts as a child right?

Cupcake Practicing!

I have a secret...I'm totally intimidated by the thought of making cupcakes so I've never made them before! Yes, me who bakes cookies EVERY week has never made a single cupcake in her life. NOT ANYMORE! I knew that the only way to face my fears was to start making cupcakes but where do I begin? I thought about using a store-bought cake mix and icing but that seemed like cheating. I knew I didn't want to make a dozen cupcakes either because I can't easily take them to work like cookies. After MUCH Googling, I found a recipe that makes only 2 cupcakes. (Actually I found several but this seemed the most promising!) So over the weekend, I decided to embark on my cupcake-making mission. First, I sprinkled the frosting with yellow sprinkles for a fun summer look. Next I dropped some pink food coloring into the frosting and sprinkled some hearts on top for a very cute lovey dovey look. They both tasted the same, sweet and more sweet, and I must say that I'm very proud of myself! There will be lots more cupcake-making practice to come until I find perfection!

What I've Been Up to Lately...

I've been a bad blogger! Well, actually I've just been really busy and our dinners haven't been very exciting. I did, however, bake some very yummy cookies and make some very cute cards!

This card I'm entering into ABC Challenge's Pattern Papers Challenge. Cute right?
