Becky Crocker

The past couple days have been great. I have been in a big "baking frenzy". No one in the house, especially Sam, Seth and Sam's friends, seem to mind tho. It keeps my mind busy and I feel it is good for the soul. Not as good as Jesus, nothing can come close to that, but it still does me good. I find myself very comfortable in the kitchen now. Don't enjoy cooking as much as baking, but I will take either one. I found a ton of great recipes to try on Pinterest. Looking forward to being able to bring some goodies into work when I return. But for now, I will show you the two that I have made and were a great succes.

Jello Cookies
I made what jello flavors we had, which were orange and strawberry banana. They were also sugar-free jello's. Everyone seemed to like them without the extra sweetness. The orange was compared to a starburst and the strawberry banana was compared to a pop tart. Just so you get an idea.

Pistachio Cupcakes
These were just SO pretty and appealing in the picture that I HAD to try them. Not only do we all love pistachios, but that cool lime green color was just calling my name saying "Bake me! You know you are going to love me!" So I did. And they were devoured before I ever got to make the icing to go on them. I still would like to make the icing and have the "whole" cupcake one day, but they are delicious by themselves. Very moist and exactly what you would want a cupcake to taste like.
Yesterday was a big day for me. I got to leave the house for a little while!! First time in a month and a half, other then going to the doctor. I went to work and stood outside as healthy people came out to give me hugs and to catch up. It was great to see everyone. Mom ran some more errands and I stayed in the car for most of it. Then we had Sonic for lunch. I love that place! Blue coconut slush, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. By the time we got home I was exhausted. It was definitely worth it tho.
Been doing my daily devotionals through theYouVersion app on my phone. I tell you, it feels like the Lord is speaking directly to me each day. Like each one was written just for me. If I feel myself start to lose patience or getting irritated, I can just read the devotional again. God is good.
Well, for today I'm hoping I can do some sewing. I'm absolutely horrible at it, but the only way to get better is to practice, right?? Sooo, I'm going to work on the Secret Santa gifts for the girls. Hopefully they turn out alright. If not, we have some new cleaning rags :) Hope everyone has a blessed day! Keep God first!
