I’m thinking about upgrading….

I simply cannot do what I want on this blog and it makes me angry.

Is a Rastafarian really to be likened to a beggar? I usually enjoy my fellow cooking blogs, but…

Apple Pie…My oh my!

Last night I made an apple pie using… (enter suspenseful music) apple pie filling. And what a bad idea that was. It was way too runny. So today, I am planning on making another one from scratch.

In about an hour or so, I’ll start on my pie crust. This should be exciting as I just bought a pastry cutter two days ago. I promise pictures of this one. I have to find a cool apple pie recipe though. (And I don’t like nuts)

Caramel Cake

My next adventure will be to the land of caramel cake. I came across the recipe on The Fabulous Life of I Dot’s blog.

Recipe:Yellow Cake –
3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1 cup milk
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Caramel Icing –
1 lb (2 3/4 cups) light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
7 tbsp evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla

It looks like a real headcaver (extra sweet)! So I think I may try to do something different with the icing. I’ll put up photos later!
