I've held true to my bucket list and I've been slaving away in the kitchen baking my little heart out! And when I say baking my little heart out, I mean I've baked two pumpkin treats so far. That may not sound like much but trust me this is a big deal!
You see, I pretty much have a hate hate relationship with baking. There is no love. I mean sure... I LOVE to eat baked goods. But I love to eat them when other people bake them for me. When I bake it usually results in me thinking very violent thoughts (like wanting to poke my eyeballs out), gets me VERY angry over the mess I just made (adding one more thing to clean to my never ending list), and usually ends with the ugly cry over all the work and effort I just put into the treat that just failed (which has happened more often than not). Baking just isn't my thing! But Eric? He loves it! It relaxes him.
I'll never understand.
But I'm proud to say that I made these cookies and these muffins so far. And they turned out PERFECTLY (even if the pictures didn't). Dang, I'm good!
