This weekend I am going to make cakes OR cupcakes. =) from scratch. Joy!! They will be decorated in a most gorgeous fashion, of course. I'm pumped. I made some cupcakes using a recipe I found online a few days ago, but they turned out like muffins rather than cupcakes, too dense. But I had a blast making them -- new recipe time! I plan on going to Barnes and Noble and buying the NY Times cookbook. I need something to do during spring break! My hubby will be eating good this week. Mmmhmmm. I'm excited, I want to perfect my baking and cooking skills (lets be honest, it may take a while) hah. But its fun regardless. If they turn out well, I will take some pictures. =)

I think I want to do a Julie and Julia type thing. The desire comes from my extreme lack of cooking. I fail to make meals at home, which makes me slow and less efficient at work. If I practice more (and make tastey foods for my family) I will be more effective. I have yet to decide what I should cook, or more specifically, where the recipes should come from. (Ideally, I'd make all the recipes in the cafe!) I do have a small baking book from the cafe, there are few savory recipes in it - so that doesn't make it a great choice, as I want to cook foods we can eat for meals. Ruminating...
