I’m going to be MIA for a little while.

But I’ll try to keep up with emails when possible.

Gordan Ramsey wants YOU!


Uh… Chef Ramsey scares terrifies me. He’d probably make me cry during the audition. I’m a crybaby+wuss. But maybe *YOU* aren’t.

Audition info here.

Good luck!

EDIT: One of my readers emailed to tell me that I spelled Chef Ramsay’s name wrong. Omg! He’s gonna find my blog post and kick my ass!! Sorry Chef! I’m not worthy. Sorry Chef. I’m not worthy! Please don’t hurt me…

NFR: Property Virgin… no more?

I can’t believe it’s been 3 weeks since I last wrote in my blog.

A couple people even emailed me and left me comments not to give up blogging. I guess 3 weeks is too long to go on hiatus in the blogging world, eh? Maybe it’s like dog years. One day is like 1 year. Wait? Did I just compare myself to a dog? Well… I suppose I can be a bitch sometimes. HA!

To be honest I forget I have readers. I forget that reading someone’s blog is like having permission to know what’s going on in their lives. At least that’s the way it is for me. When one of my blogging buddies stopped writing I feel so disconnected to them. Is that how you felt about me, Commenter #25? *smiles*

So I wanted to apologize for my lack of Tuesdays with Dorie posts, random non-food related and other food for thought posts lately. But there’s been a lot going on at mi casa.

Actually… I’m in the process of BUYING mi casa! Eek.

Whaaaaaattt? (I know my friend, April, is totally saying that right now.)

That’s right! No foolin’. In about 30 days I might be the owner of a brand new 2 bedroom/2 bathroom townhouse. And I’m totally freaking out! (Cross your fingers for me!)


This is the model’s livingroom. It’s already wired for flat screen above the fireplace. Obviously my husband is UBER excited about this!

So bare with me. This was very unexpected. We weren’t even really looking. It’s kinda like looking for a boyfriend. You look, look, look and find nothing but taken/married, too short, no personality etc but when you least expect it you find the one you’ve been looking for. Am I right girls?

I promise I’m not closing down my blog. I just might be preoccupied with mortgage, down payments, lenders, real estate agents, first time home buyer, tax credit, paint chips mumbo jumbo for a while.

But I know I’m a true foodie b/c I’m already planning my housewarming party menu!

Too soon? HA HA

NFR: Project Samson

… and my hair stylist’s name was Delilah. HA! Ok not really. Actually her name’s Corrine but she had no remorse cutting my hair.

Let me back up. It all started with a tweet.

Next thing I know my friend calls me and says “Are you busy?” Why? “I made you a hair appt for Sunday at 1 o’clock.” WHAT? “It will be fun. We can get our hair cut together.” Why? “I saw your tweet.” Damn twitter.

So… (3 hours later) I went from this…

… to this.

WHOA right?

All I remember is squealing when she took the HUGE scissors and cut HACKED off my ponytail. I think I even remember my friend laughing at me. Then again the memory is kinda fuzzy b/c I’m trying to block the trauma. (Melodramatic, much? Um. yes. I’m a girl. Duh?!)

It’s been almost a week and I’m still getting use to short hair. Everyone seems to like it. Me? I feel like a tard when I try to use a flat iron. Forget trying to use a hair dryer and round brush at the same time. How the heck do people do that? I’m just not ambidextrous. My left hand is useless. Sorry Lefty. The truth hurts.

But I don’t regret it. It’s kinda becoming a tradition for me. Every year I cut my hair and donate to Locks of Love <~ Click the link to learn more. It's really a great cause and I'm sure I'll do it again next year. What do I have to lose? Just my hair.

One sentence.

I know. I’ve been slacking.

I’ll take full responsibility for my lack of posts. Actually I blame summer. (Did I mention that already?) But leave it to my fellow TWD baker, Nancy, to listen to my whining to give me a way to ease back in. She calls it breviloquent. (Don’t worry I had to google it too.)

It’s called “One-sentence-per-post” week and it’s exactly what it sounds like. One sentence. Not one word. Not a haiku. Not a novel. Just 1 sentence. (I’m gonna be relying on my Twitter experience for this one. HA!)

OMG I just thought of something! This should be interesting come Tuesday and TWD post tomorrow. *smacks head*

Prepare yourself for run on sentence, semi-colons, parentheticals and methodically placed “ands”.

Mrs. Price (my high school english composition teacher), please avert your eyes. This aint gonna be pretty.

All good things come to an end.

It’s the end of March and the last day of NaBloPoMo.

I’ve been staring at my blank blog for an hour now trying to figure out what to write to sum up the 31 posts in 31 days experience but to be honest all I can think about is the Tuesdays with Dorie Coconut Butter Thins that I didn’t get a chance to bake (Sorry Jayne!) and my Taste & Create that is due tomorrow but have no idea what I am doing yet (Sorry Debb!).

You wanna know the truth?

I am tired and overwhelmed and anxious.

Apparently I am not superwoman (although I do dig the cape).

Is buying a home suppose to be this stressful?

Um… yeah. About those cupcake pops.

I fail.

Maybe I should just stick to REAL cupcakes.

Me and “C.Pop” met through a mutual friend but realized quickly that it’s gonna take more than a first date to be BFF. Let’s just say that more than a few of my pops drowned a slow chocolate-y death. Who knew dipping cake into chocolate was a talent that I didn’t possess? (They are slippery suckers!)

Please take a moment of silence for the fallen.

Don’t worry. I am not one to give up quickly. Actually my personality can quickly change failure into an obsession. Therefore the 2nd batch of cake balls is chilling in the frig as I type this blog post. Maybe I should run out to the grocery store for some lifesavers?

(That was my attempt at a joke. Just laugh dammit!)

Let’s the popping begin!

Did you know that today is National Something-On-A-Stick Day? I swear! I am not making that up. Seriously. How’s that for timing?

The cupcake pop challenge starts now…

It’s on like donkey kong.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

NFR: My Life in 6 Words (and 6 sentences)

… and you thought twitter’s 140 characters or less was hard?

1. Bunny loving cupcake blogger needs sleep
2. Candles don’t fit on cupcake anymore.
3. I am craving mcfries right now.
4. Friday is date night with husband.
5. Ready to get frosted at 5pm.
6. Thank Goodness It’s Finally F***ing Friday!

How would you describe your life in 6 words?

See what other people wrote here.

My favorite one.

“The fruit loop among the cherrios.”

Aint that the truth. But proud of it.

I kid you not.

ONION GOGGLES!

I kid you not.

Thanks Alanna of The Vanilla Bean for emailing me this fabulous Craigslist find! She says (sure, ok, uh huh, whatever you say) that she didn’t do a search for it. It actually came up in a random search. But she didn’t explain more so… fishy, no? HAHA

Just when I think I hit on an idea worthy of the Snuggie award, someone else already beat me to it… and selling it.

Story of my life.

Hakunamata readers.

I’m a crier.

I’m a crier. I admit it.

Every time I cut, chop, dice, slice an onion, I cry. Sometimes it can become full on bawling. That’s how I know I got a good one. But I think this is a natural right? All my friends are onion criers. T is an onion crier. My mom and his mom are onion criers.

How do the food network tv chefs cut onions but never cry? What’s their secret? Inquiring minds want to know.

(Can you tell I am sick, laying on the couch, holding a box of Kleenex and watching Food Network with nothing better to do than post rhetorical questions on my blog?)

March Madness. No, I’m not talking about basketball. NaBloPoMo.

It’s that time again!

It’s National Blog Posting Month. Actually it’s a monthly thing but after doing it for 30 days in November, I suffered some blog burnout but I am back again for March. The theme is giving (up) but its optional.

I considered giving up cupcakes (I am too weak) and/or cupcake blog (that might cause a riot) for 30 days to focus on my food blog but I am afraid I might lose my sanity if I don’t bake cupcakes. Knowing me I’d find some loophole anyways so there’s really no point. Heck yeah… I’ve got this rationalizing thing down!

Hmmm… what else can I give up?

Carbs? Oh hell nah.
Etsy? but but… I am doing my duty to stimulate the economy
Amazon? (see above)
iPhone? That’s cruel and unusual punishment
twitter? You’d have to take away my iPhone (see above)
google reader? I’d be afraid it would implode if I don’t read for 30 days
chinese takeout? I guessss I could stand to do Subway instead. It did wonders for Jared.

Thanks Holly for being my NaBloPoMo blogging buddy this month. Thank goodness I read her blog this morning when she mentioned NaBloPoMo b/c I totally forgot that today was March 1st! Where did February go? I can’t believe I almost failed before I started. Eek!

Anyone else doing NaBloPoMo? I can never have too many blogging buddies send me twitter reminders. My memory aint so great. LOL. Of course I’d be happy to return the favor too!

Check out the NaBloPoMo blogroll to see blogs participating this month. Scroll down to “i” to see my blog. I guess I can’t wuss out now… *deep breath*

Let the games blogging begin!

NFR: Blog Humbug

Forgive me. I am feeling kinda Scrooge-y today.

Feel free to add to my list if you need to get some of your Scrooge out too.

  • Christmas is over.
  • I don’t wanna put my fake dining table Charlie Brown tree away yet.
  • I haven’t seen my brother in 2 years. I wish he didn’t live so far.
  • I have to work tomorrow but hubs has 7 more days off.
  • Tastespotting rejected my picture (again!). I understand they have standards and they don’t want ugly dog food puke pictures on their site but I wouldn’t say my pictures are dog food right? I just don’t handle rejection well. I think I am gonna start tagging my posts with “rejected by TS”. Maybe it will help motivate me if I see a trend in what they like and don’t like. Or? Maybe I’ll just stop submitting.
  • I wish I didn’t live in a cave. Show me the natural light!!
  • I am sad that I can’t keep up with my blogging events b/c I want to do them all.
  • I have a back log of posts to finish but I just don’t feel like finishing them.
  • I haven’t cooked dinner for my hubs in 10 days. Call me weird but I love to cook for my hubs esp since we have an understanding. I cook; He does the dishes.
  • My diet has been bad-for-you greasy fast food for the last 10 days.
  • I am eating a salad for lunch but I really want a PHAT slice of pizza instead.
  • I don’t wanna think about my New Years resolution b/c its too stressful.
  • Wii Fit displays your BMI and weight?? and it bloats your Mii up to reflect the numbers. Ok fine. My Mii is 13 feet tall.
  • Does anyone know what happened on the last Top Chef? Hopefully it was a rerun b/c I missed it. I guess I got distracted by a little thing called Xmas eve and my TC chat buddy didn’t remind me.
  • My friend lost her job. I am sad for her.
