First and foremost, Happy Birthday to me! I love my birthday and I’m not shy to tell people that it’s my special day! I mean, what other day is it all about you? :)
Last night after picking up the kids from school, I made a carrot cake for my babysitter. It was her birthday yesterday!
I used this recipe and was really impressed! It was pretty darn good….especially the frosting! :)
We took the kids and met some friends at The Hamburger Factory in Poway. I really love that place. Look what we had:
More hot wings! You think I’d be sick of them after my hot wing coma, but sadly No.
I had a delicious cheeseburger:
And shared some “frings” with the hubby:
I think the holidays need to end so I can go on my January diet STAT!
You know what this is by now.
I took the kids to school and went over to Great News for a cooking class. Before I stopped at Starbucks for my free birthday latte:
Today’s cooking class was called “Festive Breads and More”.
The first recipe was Chocolate Chunk and Hazelnut Scones:
I’m not a big scone fan but this one was REALLY good!
Next up was Braided Sweet Bread:
Also good. I love this type of bread.
The third recipe was Rosemary-Cranberry Nut Loaf:
There was only a hint of rosemary in the bread. It was good, but just a basic loaf of quick bread to me.
Next was my favorite: Toffee-Pecan Sticky Buns:
The next recipe was Bacon, Apple filled Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel:
I was really excited about this one but I didn’t care for it as much as I thought I would. The bacon flavor actually threw me off a bit.
Last was Classic Dresden Stolen:
Very pretty to look and tasty too!
I took most of the breads home with me. Talk about carb overload!! And tonight, hubby is taking me out to dinner at my favorite restaurant, Firenze. I didn’t want to ruin a nice big bowl of pasta by eating too much bread!
Off to go celebrate my birthday!!!
Do you get excited about your birthday or is it just another day?
