I am back!

Sorry it has been a while since I posted. I have been feeling a little down lately and decided to take a little break. I was so excited last night because I finally got back in the kitchen after my little hiatus, but my excitement soon became disappointment! I tried to make the “Cream Cheese-Poppy Seed Cake” from the Martha Stewart magazine. They looked so pretty in the picture and I was certain I would be able to make them. I tried it and….it didn’t work. I am not sure what I did wrong, but the cakes fell in. They didn’t puff up at all. They did taste good, but no pretty puffiness. I finally fixed my camera problem, but was too embarrassed to post a picture of them. I mean these things looked blah.. I do plan on attempting them again since they are so pretty and did taste very good. Just not until I make something that works out well to give myself confidence again.

I bought the Rachel Ray magazine Sunday while I was waiting for the Harry Potter movie show time. I don’t know, I was really excited about it, but I don’t think I will be subscribing to it. Now and then I will probably buy it just to see if there are any new recipes. The ones I did notice were ones you can just print off the Food Network site. It was a magazine first for me. I actually finished looking at it within the 30 minute ride home that night. Usually it takes me a couple of days to read one. Now don’t be upset with me…I am not saying it is a terrible magazine, just one I didn’t care for. If I don’t talk to you again soon I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!

Hooray! I'm glad you're back, and sorry to hear about your cakes! At least they tasted good. We went to see Harry Potter on Saturday, too...a bit disappointed with it, actually. I felt the same way about RR's new mag...fun, but not something I'd subscribe to. So glad to see you're in the kitchen! ;)
