Saturday and Sunday mornings are when most of the magic happens here. I love nothing more than getting up and baking each morning in the kitchen. I also prep some of our lunches and dinners these mornings. Mr. How Sweet eats like a pubescent 15 year old boy, so we must be prepared.


Here’s a glimpse into the madness…

[messes everywhere]


Mr. How Sweet and I are off to a wedding today. I can’t wait – I love weddings!

    Have a great day at the wedding!

    And I think having to get up and cook first thing in the morning (besides breakfast) would be the end of me. LOL When I win the lottery can I hire you as my personal live in chef? Purty please! :D

    To make your own brown sugar all you need is black strap molasses and white sugar?

    Please say yes because I can have molasses but not cane sugar. I use beet sugar which is a great sub, but haven’t found a brown sugar sub.

      You can get them at http://www.fustinis.com! Not in stores, other than their own stores which are in Michigan.

    I love your idea of making actual meals for lunches. I’m going to start doing that. Beats the heck out of sandwiches, right?

    Hi beautiful…

    Your last post about having doubts but praying and having a lead on the part time job…awesome!!! Change and uncertainty of the future and what i holds is probably what keeps the majority of people doing their unhappy job/marriage/friendships/dietary path/etc that they have always done b/c they are scared of the future and change. I am glad you are breaking free and can’t wait to see what happens!

    Have fun at the wedding!

    :)

    Those vinegars looks wonderful!
    I can’t wait to see what you made and how you do that trick of partially lining the muffin papers.

    Enjoy the wedding!
