We Made it to Friday!

I've been leading the ladies through the James Bible study by Beth Moore.  I am really enjoying it.

Had a Great Weekend

So our best friends in ministry moved next door to us in August.  We had intentions of lots of time together, then school and ministry got in the way.  We haven't gotten together once just to hang out.  Tonight that changes.  We are having them and their five kids over for a kid approved meal, spaghetti and garlic toast.  I wanted to do something different for dessert, since I couldn't really experiment on the main course.

To come out of my four day weekend, I have a twelve hour workday.  I'm bringing cookies to the meeting that I have to go to.

Trying New Things in Baking

I can't believe that we are almost finished the first quarter.  We had conferences two nights this past week, but I am in the middle of a four day weekend, and loving it.  

This post represents a back log of recipes I've been meaning to post.  

Chocolate Pinwheels

Lemon Velvet Cake

Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

My students loved how these cookies melt in your mouth!

This is my first time making popovers.  They were a bit under cooked, but overall I was pleased to try something new.  I will be making more popover recipes.
