My Baking Experience

I love to cook. I think I am a very good cook, at least that's what my husband tells me. But I haven't been very good at baking. Why? I have no idea. Either I don't follow the recipe right, try to change the recipe or I over cook it and it just never works. I think the only thing I can bake right is peanut butter cookies that I make from scratch myself or just a simple cake.

But over the Christmas holiday I did branch out and try to make some really fabulous goodies. I know a really awesome lady name Krista from who recommended a some great treats that I attempted to make over the holiday. I just had to try a few of the recipes she had on her blog.

First up I am a HUGE chocolate lover and this was a recipe I just had to try.

This is my version of the Chocolae Cake Bites

This was made with simple yellow cake mix, cake frosting and chocolate. The cake mix was made into just two baked round cakes and then later crumbled into a bowl. The …

That Holiday Spirit

Where is it? For me I am in such a foul Christmas spirit. Why do the retail industry take all the fun out of the meaning of Christmas. It is not about how much you are going to spend or who is getting what for Christmas or what you want for Christmas. Its about the birth of Christ, family love ones and being happy. Christmas time makes so many people miserable and that is not what it is all about. I am so thankful for just being able to get up in the morning, kiss my husband good bye and enjoy my day. We have gotten in such a rut every year killing ourselves to please others. Granted it is more about the spirit of giving yes but I do think we go over board trying to please everyone. Ok so what will happen if you don't give a gift this year? Will family talk about you? Call you cheap? Are you more concerned about how people will perceive you if you don't give a gift? Its the pressure of the holidays to give give give even if you can't even afford it.

What's New

Well it has been awhile since I have posted anything new in my shops but I do have a few new items I like to share.

Soaps, yes new soaps have arrived. It has been some time since I made any new soaps. The process for me takes some time and I really have to be in the soap making mood to make soap and lately I haven't but I have made some progress in the past month and have been motivated to get into the kitchen and started making some new soaps.

Most recently listed soap.

One of my favorite soaps to use is the Loofah. Some don't like the rough feel of the loofah but I love it. I love how it leaves my skin feeling refreshed and new. This loofah is made with a awesome goats milk soap and a Honey Almond Essential oil fragrance. Absolutely one of my best fragrance. This is filled with the soap and has added almond meal added to it for added exfoliating. This will come wrapped in a plastic bag with tie and label. Great for gift giving and stocking stuffers.

For Men. Yes Men go figure
