Good Morning Darlings!

The state of Georgia has so much to love. We are the home to the Atlanta Falcons, the Atlanta Braves, Jimmy Carter and Scarlett O’Hara.

Who is our most famous Georgian?

Lemon Cookies & Blog Love

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

I really love a lemon dessert. And if it’s easy, even better.

While perusing Foodgawker.com the other day, I spied this lemon cookie that looked fabulous. I followed it to the blog from whence it came and found a treasure.

Let me introduce you.

Fun Find Friday-Mixer Mate!

Friday, January 28th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

The nice folks from Beater Blade sent me this fab new bowl to try for mixing.

They sent me the sassy red model – to match the ribbons on my kitchen curtains. Red makes everything feel happier!

So, how does it work? Its curved sides keep batter (or icing, or meringue – you get the idea) from flying all over your just-cleaned kitchen. ┬áRemember Uncle Matt making birthday cupcakes for Eric’s birthday in the mountains? This could have been avoided if he had the Mixer Mate. Although we did get a great laugh out of the chocolate covered kitchen.

It takes just a smidge of getting used to. I had to find the right configuration for my mixer. But that could just because I am left-handed and everything seems a little backwards to me. But once you get the hang of it, you will be hooked. It even has grippy material underneath the handles for easy gripping and sides with spouts for simple pouring. Oh, I just love it.

And I have been giving it a workout lately. I made a cake yesterday for sweet Shane’s birthday last night and another cake today for dear friend Kerry’s birthday – lemon curd layer cake with a fluffy 7 minute frosting. Mmmmm. I will post photos and details from both parties next week. Today I am grappling with a bit of a head cold. And it’s Friday? Why not get a cold on Monday so I could be better for the weekend? Ah, it’s okay. I needed to slow down, lay on the couch, read and cuddle the dogs anyway.

Enjoy the weekend my darlings!
xoxo, Patti
