Anyone wanna come over?

Maybe it's the cool fall weather. Maybe it's the fact that my parents have been in town and I love having people to bake for. I don't know what's been motivating me, but I have been baking a lot lately. Not cooking, but baking. There's a difference. I did cook yummy Italian seasoned pork chops for dinner tonight, but I am talking about the flour in your hair and oil stains on your shirt kind of baking.

This is what I have made just in the past 5 days alone. Read this and then pray I can get over my back issues soon so I can get to a gym. 'Cause the season just started and I bake constantly from October until Christmas. Not good, my friends.


Pumpkin muffins, Cream cheese filled danishes, 2 chocolate pies, cheese straws, sausage balls, blueberry pound cake, and egg casserole breakfast cups.










5 days!! All of this in 5 days. And my parents are gone, my husband is sufficiently stuffed, and I still want to bake some more. So my question remains. Anyone wanna come over? Or should I head to therapy right now?

Oh my goodness, Lauren! Yes, I want to come over and eat all of that. And then let's bake some more! I too have that fall baking bug. I hate to cook, and love to bake. (I've thought about starting my own bakery from time to time, but I'm not that consistent with it.) Then we'll have to hit the gym together, before we have to be rolled out of the house!

No therapy. I'll be over soon!

Sausage balls = yum. Do you cook the sausage before?

Everything looks divine!

HOLY COW CAN I BOOK A PLANE NOW!!!!! This is one of the 300 reasons I loved living with you!!! (We still drool over your chicken packets(?) recipe that you used to make. Mine isn't quite the same, maybe b/c it's me making it) I will take a chocolate pie, ALL the sausage balls, some of the egg casserole cups and a cheese danish. When can you ship it? It's killing me too b/c my pants are all tight from eating at Disney (hince the running I've started) and I refuse to buy new pants. It's too many to replace. So I'm not baking. Anything. I made 10 calorie cherry jello instead. It's killing me!!!! I've never had to do this and it hurts.

Maybe I should just go buy some new pants.
