Lemon bars. And maybe some cookies too. Not sure what kind yet. I have a request for lemon bars though.

You take care of yourself Babe! I wish I lived a little closer because I love making pineapple upside down cake and would be most happy to oblige your dessert cravings! . I hope you are feeling better today.

You must be feeling better - I can tell because you are baking!

I have a small (30 people) 20th anniversary cake due for Saturday and with DH off and on a reno frenzy (kitchen is done and now he is making screens for all the windows), I haven't even started yet. So today I will be baking a 12" square chocolate cake and a 9" vanilla heart.

Oh, and another bride wants a tasting so this week I have to get on that one too! Anyone want to help me with the leftovers on this one

Either that or I'm stupid. OW! Whisking is not on my list of things I can do with my elbow. However, I did it. Lemon bars are baking and I'm icing. My elbow that is. LOL. Cookies may need to wait for another day.

On Friday I also made 11 dozen mini chocolate cupcakes (real chocolate cake) which I decorated with frosting and jelly beans Saturday morning. I took them to church Sunday morning as a thank you for all the meals, visits and support they have given us in the last three months during my rough time health-wise.

Today I made a gluten free loaf of bread for DH in the bread machine and a batch of GF hamburger buns in my KA. I have 8 molds and they turn out pretty good.

If I have the energy I should get a chocolate cake in the oven tonight so it is ready tomorrow to use as a sample to carve. I have an idea for a wedding cake but I need to test it out before presenting it to the couple.

Between Dad's diabetes, DH's gluten and lactose intolerances, plus samples and actual orders for my business, I will probably be baking full time from now until the end of September. Sure glad I am feeling better

You are making me feel lazy!
