Here's the recipe for Cafe Rio night:
Here's the link for meatless Monday:
Q & A:
Q= Jade asked, "How do you do the frosting?"
A= I just use the same frosting recipe as in the pumpkin bar link above. You simply put the frosting into a quart sized Ziploc bag and snip the corner as large as you want the frosting swirl. Then start with the outer rim of the cupcake working in to the enter and pull up at the end to create a cute top! Also, if the frosting is too thick to pipe out just stick the bag of frosting into the microwave for 5 seconds. (if it doesn't work the first time, do another 5 seconds)Good Luck!
Here's what Brooklyn worked on while I was baking yesterday.
PS- Do you like the new header? Bryan surprised me yesterday by making it! He's so awesome!
I went over to my friend Melissa's that night to watch the BL and we finished it in two hours! We were hauling! Here's the final product. Jackie picked out the red back. I love it! Good Choice Jackie! I also love the diagonal machine quilting. It was my mom's suggestion. Good one mom! Thanks everyone for making this quilt a success!

Then I let out a sigh of relief. I was reminded that I wasn't alone. This friend did a small and simple thing however, the impact it had on me was great. She had no idea of all the things that were happening but, she acted on a prompting she received. How grateful I am that she listened. Thanks Friend! I love you!

I mentioned it to my mom the other day. I showed her Nicole's web site. She loved it. The next day my parents came to me and they said,
"Dad will pay your classes and I will pay for your airfare."
I couldn't believe it! I was so shocked and happy that my parents would support me.
I went to pay for the classes and they were all FULL! I was so upset. I still am upset. If you know of anyone who is trying to sell their ticket PLEASE let me know by Thursday of this week! I was so hoping to get into Nicole's Photography Classes and some of the photoshop classes.
Thanks for listening. Maybe I'll be able to take Nicole Hill Gerulat online photography class in January. She is amazing!
PS- Kristine and Jane: I was going to call and see if I could stay with you. Sad it didn't work out.
