I feel like this board is totally dead lately?!
I'm here and the board is pretty dead lately. Post away Steph! Get this board going with your wine drinking ideas!!
And don't feel bad. Two mixed drinks recently and I was out on the couch!
*hangs head in shame* I am so a cheap drunk!
I'm here - just finished baking cupcakes and waiting for them to cool down so I can frost them.
Remember that episode of Sex and the City when Miranda discovers that she can make a cake from box for six bucks instead of paying sixty dollars for the bakery cake.
I've been buying cupcakes from bakery every Friday. Lana and I go for lemonade and cupcake as our little bonding time. I tested a brand new bakery Sprinkles and I was underwhealmed. When will they stop using Crisco shortening in bakeries??? I can taste it - yuck!
I found a great recepy for homemade chocolate frosting using powdered sugar, cocoa powder and a spoonful of condensed milk (regular milk works well too). I like it but dh is skeptical. Says it doesn't taste right. As in - doesn't taste like the canned frosting. He says it's a bit too "homemade" for him. LOL.
I can always taste when they're using margarine too. I know butter is expensive but it makes such a difference... just MHO...
I haven't seen that Sex in the City Episode. Did Miranda really think the box cake was comparable?
Hmmm... I might be a baked-goods snob.
i know i haven't been around much.
Hey Carolyn :).
Better glitchy then kitchy LOL :)

Brenda - woohooo!!! I thought you left us for good! Yeah on a new computer!
