"It felt French."

I love Friends. Too much for words. I could probably watch that show 24/7. It's always hilarious.


Kyle, Selena, Gabe, and I went with my in-law's to my father-in-law's mother's house.
Mouthful, huh?

This February. She had made us some food, and part of it was this french bread with about a half inch of garlic butter in the middle. Kyle's been going on and on and ON about it ever since. And it's almost April. Sheesh.

I was making spaghetti the other night and decided to give a try at some french bread with garlic butter.

It came out amazingly.

Until I screwed it up.

I had to bake this bread twice in two days. It was THAT good.

Fat Kid Night.

I posted..less than 24 hours ago about taking a blog hiatus. And I guess my choice of wording is wrong. It's more of a "come and go as fit" situation.

The amount of stress in my life is still at high, and *gasp* I'm out of crafts to do at the moment to take my time off of it. So, tonight I claimed myself to a Harry Potter marathon and baking.

And these cupcakes are totally worth not having a craft to do.

I guess they're a craft in themselves.
You know your mouth is watering.

Shadows = Temporary Hiatus

Honestly, I'm not gone from this because I want to be.

I'm gone from this from necessity.

We, the husband and I, are dealing with a LOT of things right now. More than I care to get into, actually. Also, our finances aren't the best. I'm limited as to what I can cook and bake. So I'm making repeats of cheap meals that I've already put on here, or microwave dinners. 


I know. I"m kicking myself about it. I really am.

I promise, though, once things in life pick up and settle down, I'm back on this like white on rice.

I'm not built for the outside stuffs.

I'm really, really, REALLY not an outdoors person.

I don't do the whole camping thing. 

And here's why.

1. It gets freaking HOT in the summer. Pennsylvania wasn't so bad, but now that I'm in Missouri, it's like I'm walking outside to Hell. I prefer air conditioning.
2. There's no bathrooms when you go "real" camping. I'm saying "real" camping because Kyle, bless his heart, just gets into a tizzy when you bring up campgrounds. You should hear his rant. It's quite amusing.
3. There's bugs and things. Bugs are too icky for my taste. And skunks. And mountain lions. And armadillos. And possums. *shivers*
4. I'm a mosquito magnet, literally. If you want to walk outside with no bug spray on into a swarm of those things, take me will you. I promise that you won't get bit. They'll be too busy attacking me.

Now, camping food? I'm down with that.

Fire roasted hot dogs, I love. Jiffy Pop over the fire? Bring it.

And s'mores. S'mores are #1 on my fire food priority list.

In the summer, Kyle makes a fire in our yard to burn branches and random scraps of wood that I collect (because you never know what you can make from them!) and I can only stand about 2 minutes in the heat. And everytime I request a s'more, I hear the dreaded words...

"Make it yourself!"


But WAIT! I found the solution! Head over to Just Baked and find...

I'm serious. I don't kid about cuppycakes. Or s'mores. And these are as close as you're going to get to a s'more without having to fight the evils of being outside.

I'm not posting the recipe on here, but below are my photos of the process and end result. You'll drool, I promise.

Kyle and I are already fighting over them. :)
