Today I ring in the big 3-1. No longer am I merely 30, but I am in my 30′s . So weird, especially since I still don’t really feel too much like a grown up And as I like to do every year, I baked something new and different to celebrate with. It sort of reminds me of being a kid when you’d bring treats to school to share with the class on your birthday (did anyone else do this?). This is me bringing treats in for the class and sharing with all of you
Summer has simply flown by. And if I’m being honest, the fact that I am back at work today makes me want to cry a little – or a lot. I’ve enjoyed working on the blog full time and have certainly disrupted my normal school year sleeping habits.
Kimberly of Kimberly C Baking emailed me about the idea of a Ferrero Rocher cupcake. After I wondered, "What the heck is a Ferrero Rocher ?" I looked up Ferrero Rocher on Wikipedia and declared it a great idea. We talked about her idea for a bit and Kimberly suggested that we both bake different styles of Ferrero Rocher cupcakes and blog about it; another great idea.

“I remember when no one was looking I was puttin' peanuts in my Coke.” - " I was country when country wasn't cool ." We all have food traditions that are specific to our geographical location. I am a citizen of the Southeastern United States, and my residence is just outside the Great Smoky Mountains. I could tell you about a number of traditional and odd-sounding foodstuffs that I grew up on; eggs scrambled with crumbled cornbread, cushaw pie, chocolate grav y ... but this post is dedicated to a simple southern snack that I remember fondly: peanuts in Coca-Cola .
