30 Days About Me: Recipe (I Can Be A Foodie Too!)


Alrighty peeps, I know some of you have read this before (this is 2 years old, how times flies!) But I don't cook, like ever. So I had to repost because trying to re-create goodness in the kitchen could be dangerous!!


love reading about my blogging buddies yummy culinary creations! I wish scrumptious aromas often filled the air in my own kitchen. Well, I've decided to do something about it. I too can document my fabulous food concoctions! 

Today's assistant will be my lovely daughter
.


The delicatessen of choice? Box cupcakes, yum :)



Step 1: Turn box over and read the back, collect ingredients.
(after you chug a glass of wine)



Step 2: Pick out your cupcake cups.
(this will eliminate any unnecessary cleanup)



Step 3: Put cups into pan, arrange in a colorful pattern, a MUST!
(in my experience it makes the cupcakes taste better, i swear)



Step 4: Put packaged mix, eggs, water, and oil into large bowl.
(if you spill the powder as it comes out of the bag just scoop it off the floor and add to bowl, no one will know!)



Step 5: Make the hired help do the mixin'.
(watch her though, she can be a real messy cook)



Step 6: Time for a taste test!
(nothin' like some raw egg goodness!)



Step 7: Does it taste good? if it doesn't then abort immediately.
(OR finish the yucky cupcakes and give to a friend!)



Step 8: If it does taste good, then lick the mixer beaters!
(am I the only one who's tongue can't reach the center pole?)



Step 9: Admire your handy mixing skills, and thank the help.
(meaning bribe her with candy so she'll leave and quit eating it)



Step 10: Pour mix into cups, stick in oven.
*be sure to turn the oven on... VERY important.
(note the beautifully clean oven? the advantages of being a bad cook!)



Step 11: Banish the mixer the the "chamber of never used appliances."
(kind of like the "Island of Misfit Toys" without the island, or the misfit toys)



Step 12: Take out of oven and place on a plate to cool.
(be sure to keep out of reach of dogs. They like cupcakes on the counter... apparently.)



Steps 13 - 15 are not available due to next batch being left in too long, smoke detector going off and hands being burned trying to remove said burned cupcakes from the oven without pot holder. *ouch* No children or animals were harmed in the making of this post.

Good luck and happy baking!

What a fun activity. I remember baking with my mom...it was always an adventure. Looking forward to when my son is old enough to "help" more in the kitchen!

Best,

Tasting the batter is my absolute favorite part of baking... better than the finished product if you ask me.
