This is the time of year when I am inundated with political mailings. So the ballot is in the mail and now I have all of this junk mail to recycle. I decided to use some of it to make circular templates.
I recently made our daughter a red and blue velvet cake for her birthday. The cake was horribly crumbly and I had a really hard time crumb coating it. I was running low on frosting and decided that instead of making more to add a thicker coating to cover all of the crumbs, I would embrace my mess!
Our kids really like Costco muffins, but I find that we have a hard time using them up before they go bad. When we buy them, I immediately cut them in half, put them in a Ziploc bag, and freeze them. They are easy to defrost either ahead of time in the refrigerator or more quickly in the microwave.
