Meet Your Competition, Foodies!

Lets me just start off by letting you know I don’t enjoy cooking.

So baking for me is pretty much unheard of.

When I bake I hear things like,

“Hun, you’re baking! Why?”

“Have you been dared to partake in a cake walk?”

“Do you need help with this?”

My family stares at me with gaping mouths while I plug in mixers, crack eggs, and pre-heat the oven wondering if I’ve been replaced with a mom who knows how to make a cake.


I know how to make a cake!

I just don’t like making them!

If I enjoyed cooking, throwing incredients together, kneading dough, and getting my hands juicy then I would do it.

Obviously I don’t or there would be a better variety of dinners on our table at 5:00pm.

BUT.. Sometimes I get that urge.

I blame you foodies who post pictures of your delicious treats (Alison and Julie) and make me wish I wanted to bake.

And then I do it.


I would love to tell you that my family enjoyed them.

That they swooned over my delectable treats, that they called friends over my talent in the culinary arts.

But I pretty much ate them all myself.

Don’t judge.

    You are the smartest person I know of for eating them all by yourself. I always share with the kids and it’s not fun.

    Oh YUM, that is delicious looking! What flavour are the cakes?

    Um, I’d eat them all too.

    (Thank you for the shout out!)

      Thank you for spelling flavour in the Canadian spelling!
      I think I already told you that they are the rainbow flavour on the inside.

    Alison spelled “flavor” like “flavour.” That’s hot. 🙂

    Tell me, what prompted you to put on your baker’s hat? I’m very proud of you, they look yummy.

    And there’s nothing wrong with eating them yourself. I ate most of the peanut butter muffins myself as well.

      I felt inspired by the icing that my hubs opened and ate on it’s own.
      what a pig.

    Next time you get the urge to bake those goodies call your Mother to share in the spoils… They look great. You know I’m not one to spend time in the kitchen, either.

    You so make me laugh girl. I’m not a baker either. Things don’t always turn out looking like the picture in the cookbook. I don’t fret it. I stick to what I’m good at … Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip Cookies. Yum!

    And why shouldn’t you eat most of them? I mean, you made them!

      I figure if I don’t eat them right away I will just eat them over time. Better get it over with.
