Today is my son's birthday. It feels real funny in a way, because I no longer have any teenagers in my home.

We met with our pastor yesterday and set the wedding date to May 1, 2010. Im going to be making a 3 tier wedding cake and a farm themed cake for hubby. I posted both cakes on my sparkpage. The 3 tier cake will have lavender instead of the yellow. Thats going to be my biggest baking challenge. Just couldnt see spending 250 on the cakes.

Yeah, October is coming. This begins my big baking season. I love everything pumpkin.
Im going to bake and freeze pumpkin nut cookies, muffins and pumpkin cakes. Of course cant forget the pumpkin pies.

This means lots of working out.

I am in the baking mood. I just baked Halloween Pumpkin chip cookies that were so good. So moist and bread like. I used butterscotch chips and my DH wants no chips next time.

I love to cook but my DH is not into sweet and is very plain.

Hi,
Just joined the team and just thought I would jump right in.
The last thing I baked was a black forest cake last weekend for a cookout. It made a hit.

Gosh I cant believe how many pies you made. Your such a trooper. I make lots of cookies at christmas time so I cant complain.
100's I bet. Not sure how I resist all that temptation.

I look forward to getting to know everyone and share some recipes.

Summer baking is a cinch......Christmas time is a nightmare!!!! I also do speciality cakes from my home after I get home from work. This week I have to do a 3 tier anniversary cake plus a full slab to go with it. Thank goodness this is my last home order until end of September.

I think I'll bake some cookies today, with lots of fiber. I'll make oatmeaal raisin and use wheat germ and flaxseed in them. I'll also chop up some walnuts or maybe some slivered almonds in there too. Then I'll put them in separate baggies and freeze them, so then I'll have snacks to put in my lunches for when I substitute teach this school year.

Cookies! They do freeze well. Make them with a lot of fiber in them, so they're healthy too. Oatmeal raisin would be a good choice. Or how about makeing the batter and pressing it into a pan and baking it and then cutting them into squares and then wrap them individually in wax paper or put them in individual baggies so that you can grab one and put it in your lunch for work?

I love to bake and haven't baked the entire month I've been on spark people. I'm in the mood to bake but not sure what to bake. I don't want a whole lot of extra lying around that I'll be super tempted to consume. I'm the type if it's there I'm going to eat it and sometimes not in moderation.
Any ideas?
Something that will freeze easily and be good to take out in pieces and have every once in awhile would be nice.
Thanks for the help!

the frosting for the strawberry cupcakes was a pkg of neufchatel cheese, 4 tbps. butter, 3.5 cups powdered sugar and .5 cup "mashed" strawberries. yum! the only problem with it is that it didn't get very stiff--i tried adding more powdered sugar but it was still kinda runny--more like a thick glaze. the chocolate ganache was the easiest thing ever! a cup of semisweet chocolate chips that have been melted in the microwave, then put that in a blender w/.5 cup evaporated milk, and .5 tsp. vanilla extract and blend for i think 2 minutes. both amazing!

Well that is a BIG compliment...congrats! What kind of frosting did you make? I made a homemade whipped cream frosting for Easter and it was soooo good! Have not made it again because I am pretty sure it causes heart attacks. haha a PINT of heavy cream, whipped with sugar, cream cheese, and almond extract.

48 cupcakes!!!! Geez Sarah, were they for someone else? hahah the other day we were talking about how we need to spend less and save more to get ready for our move next summer and Zach said, "You have GOT to cut out the baking! It is making me fat and it costs a lot of money and THEN you give it all away...it is like you are giving money away!"

Kinda true, but so hard to stop!

I have made cakes with splenda before. If you use all splenda the result is a little more dense and soft...not as raised as most cakes. If you use half splenda half white sugar it turns out better. The all-splenda cakes TASTE fine if it is just you and your husband eating it...they just are not as pretty

I have a question: Have any of you made a pound cake with sugar substitute? My husband is diabetic and I want to lose weight but we love pound cake and he didn't get a cake for his birthday because of the sugar. I was afraid to try because of the cost of eggs, etc. I tried a splenda pudding once and it was not good.

I'm not "brand new" to this team, but my goal this week is to post on every one of my teams. You may ask why?...well, I have been making my WW teams my biggest priority since I work for WW, but I realized that I am missing out on meeting alot of new sparkers by not spending more time in my other teams. I know that there is alot more I have to learn and contribute....so just wanted to give yall a shout out...

Hope you have a blessed Sunday!

congrats on your new apt! what kind of cookies are you going to bake? I had set out to bake a lot of cookies but ended up only making choc chip, oatmeal scotties and gingerbread men. I was also going to make fudge but that didn't happen either. Oh yea, and pumpkin bars, no go for that idea as well. Oh well, next time, right?

Hey everyone, sorry I've been MIA for a while, but with the holidays upon us, I've been getting things ready for the baking jobs I will have. I have to start this weekend, and then freeze the rest of the dough for a week only to finish the weekend after. I've already started posting some of the recipes I will be making so I hope everyone checked them out.

I also hope to see lots of new recipes in the swap, one can never have too many. I came across a recipe for Salt Dough Ornaments, and if anyone has kids, takes care of kids, plays with kids, or just wants it for themselves, let me know and I will post it for everyone.

Magi, I don't know the answer to the rice cooker question...have you looked it up on any search engines? What are you looking to cook in one? Keep us posted.

Everyone else, I am still on the look out for a co-captain so if anyone wants to step up, I am all for it. Happy Holidays everyone!

Hey all--I've been absent for a few weeks. I got sick w/a stomach virus, and then increased work at my job has cut down on my ability to take a break and do what I normally do during my lunch period. But I'm back! I haven't yet weighed myself to see if I did any Thanksgiving damage, but I am ready to get back here and on track again!

Hello everyone I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. My Thanksgiving was great with family and friends I could not have ask for anything else. I baked a Tres Leche cake and it was a hit. My family requested for Christmas that I bake a Red Velvet Cake. So it looks like I'm baking again really soon.

You've got to sing like you don't need the money, love like you'll never get hurt. You've got to dance like no one is watching. It's gotta come from the heart, if you want it to work.

Hello everyone I hope everyone is ready for Thanksgiving I myself am excited. I'm having family fly in from Puerto Rico and can't wait to see them. Hope everyone have a safe and loving Thanksgiving.

Today in south Alabama was a beautiful day. The temp was cool, the sun was out and it was an energetic day.
Tomorrow is supposed to be cold -- 33 degrees. I'll probably be staying in.
How you all have a Happy Sunday.

Just an idea, don't know if it will work, but how about sticking the kiss on top as soon as you take it out of the oven. You could make a small indent with your thumb when you put them in and the kiss will probably melt to the cookie because it is hot. Let me know if you try it and if it works.

I would think that peanut butter cups would be fine in the middle. i've seen recipes like that and they seem to work. You could also maybe do Reese's pieces or M&Ms or something like that maybe...

Hey team, sorry I wasn't around much, life happens now and then, I'm sure you all know what I mean. Right now, life is still happening, just not as intense, but...I've come to the realization that I just can't do it all, so even though I stepped up when asked if anyone wanted to be a leader of this team, I am now asking if anyone wants to be co-leader with me, for those moments that life gets the better of me. I need someone who can stop in once a day or so and see how everyone is doing. Sparkmail me and let me know. Thanks for understanding team!

Side note, we will be getting our car very soon, and once we do, I will be able to get to the store to start buying ingredients for the vast amount of cookies we will be making for Christmas. My favorite thing is simply licking the bowl...forget the end result of the cookie itself, give me some raw dough in a heartbeat.

Now, for the advice I need. I was thinking about making a variation on a mini brownie for ThanksGiving dessert (something other than pie). I was going to dollop some brownie batter into mini muffin tins (in paper), put in a treat, and then top off with more batter. My original thoughts were to put in a peanut butter cup or peanut butter hershey kiss in the middle and top that, but I'm wondering, won't it melt in the oven? So then I thought...what about just a drop of peanut butter, and then I'm thinking, well won't the heat from the oven just make that all runny, and how would it taste? So here's what I'm asking, what do I do? What can I put in the middle to mix it up a bit. Thanks team!

Hey Sarah...don't sweat one day, we all have them...what's great is you can get back on track so quickly. My computer crapped out yesterday, so that is why I wasn't around, and now I have a temporary replacement while mine is out being fixed. I hope everyone had a great weekend, and has a wonderful week.

Any plans for this weekend? I'm hoping to go to an orchard/pumpkin patch, weather permitting, and then I have an Open House for my Creative Memories Business on Saturday--lots of treats to bake for it!

Way to go, on heading down!! That is awesome news!

We took the kids to a costume party today and had a hard time getting them to leave...I think they are getting into Halloween more, and I can't wait to see them trick or treating.

Sorry I haven't gotten on until now, I've been in bed all day. I was up all night and most of the morning in the bathroom with a stomach bug (I'm assuming that's what it was). I'm still not 100% yet, but I'm alot better than I was. I hope everyone is having a great day.
