Wow, I use a lot of butter!

Hello out there! As you may or may not have noticed, I didn't post my cookie blog last week. I made the cookies-bars actually, Cappuccino bars to be exact, and I wasn't thrilled with them. I just handed them to whoever would take one and told them not to have high expectations this week and that I wasn't giving a survey.

Last week was actually a bustling week in the Horn kitchen. I made three or four batches of whoopie pies (which my son affectionately calls "pookie" pies) to sell, chocolate-zucchini cupcakes, the cookie bars, and some tiramisu cupcakes. I have not a single stick of butter or egg left in my house! This leads me to my next item. Sadly, I'll be postponing further blogs until next pay period. Now I realize that this would seem like kind of a lame excuse to not blog, but after paying all the bills and seeing our remaining balance, well, let's just say I wish I had stock in
flour and sugar! Some girls get a thrill buying a cute top, mine is finding and purchasing that rare (and perhaps pricey) ingredient to use in some random baked item sometime in the near future. And so I have a lovely stocked pantry with all sorts of unique things, but now not so much dough to make the dough (haha). Of course, baking isn't the only place extra money is going, but it is one of the things that is being cut back for the time being-along with movie rentals and dining out. Wow, that's almost all of my favorite things! Bummer. But this is only for a couple weeks. So in the mean time, here is a picture of my son enjoying his "pookie" pie and links to some of the other blogs I enjoy!
