Merry Christmas 12/24/10

I just want to thank everyone for following my blog and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. My 1 year anniversary for this blog is exactly a month from now and I'm excited.

I might start doing more (food - food) dishes next year. My baking has slowed down a bit with my carpal tunnel. I won't be doing fondant for cakes anymore, well maybe ones or twice, definitely not a lot. I will focus more on cupcakes and cookies next year.

Again, thank you for all the comments and feedback.

Jingle BALLS, I meant the cake balls silly! 12/21/10

I just want to share the cake bites ( I prefer to call them cake bites instead of balls, LOL). I made these for the kids teachers, along with the tote bags.

I made a cherry chip cake with crushed peppermint candy cane and red velvet. I dipped them in red and green Wilton candy melts. I sprinkled some with colored sugars and sprinkles. The boxes I got from the Dollar General and some at Big lots. The tote bags are made by me. I know you see a lot of bags, but I had the kids picked the bags they want to give to their teacher. My daughter wanted to give to three teachers so I had her picked 3 and my son has 2 teachers.

The totes I gave away.

Cupcake Wreaths 12/13/10

My last post was a Cake Wreath, so I figured I would make cupcakes as well. They are much cuter and so much easier to make. They are small enough to lug around it's bite size. No cutting involve :-) and the kids loves it.

I used a Wilton leaf tip for the wreath and I'm not sure what those sprinkles are called. LOL! SO use any red round sprinkles you can find.

Fudgy Brownie Pecan Pie... RECIPE! 12/1/10

The title got me too. Sounds yummy doesn't it? I've never had pecan pie, EVER. I've been wanting to make it for a long time but never had the urge to really make it. So when I saw this from Bakerella's site, I knew I had to try it. I know hubby, likes pecan pie, but this one has brownies on them.

So here's the recipe that I got my Bakerella's page. She has 2 versions on her site. The Fudgy and regular. I picked the fudgy one of course. LOL!

3/4 cup melted butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tablespoon self-rising flour
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups pecans

1 package brownie mix and ingredients listed on the box

2 frozen deep dish pie shells or 2 frozen pastry roll


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place brown sugar in a large bowl and work out lumps. Add flour and stir together until the flour disappears.
  • Add corn syrup and vanilla. Stir until thoroughly until combined.
  • Add melted butter. Fold into mixture until it disappears.
  • Loosely beat two eggs in a separate bowl and fold into mixture until the eggs disappear.
  • Stir in pecans and set aside.
  • Prepare brownie batter as instructed on package.
  • Remove two frozen pies shells from freezer and divide brownie batter evenly between the two. (Deep dish for fudgy version and regular-size for the brownie version.)
  • Spoon pecan pie mixture evenly between the two pie shells.
  • Bake fudgy deep dish version for about 40-45 minutes. Place a large sheet of foil across the top of the two pies for the last 10-15 minutes to avoid pie crust from browning too much.
  • Bake brownie regular pie shell version for about 35 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and cool.

Soooo, fudgy or not they will be good. I baked this for Thanksgiving and I gave one of the pie to the in-laws and they loved it.
