What I should be doing?
I have a potential opportunity to contribute some recipes to a cookbook that Harvest House is talking about putting out, and I've been dragging my feet about actually writing the recipes, because, I am scared of failing.
What else should I be doing?
I want to talk about the book I have been reading: The Help.
(But I haven't finished listening to the audio book yet.)
I want to talk about the cake I made that I was inspired to make while listening to that book: Minnie's Caramel Cake. Heavenly!
(But I ran out of sugar while I was making the cake, had to substitute ingredients, had to use an entirely different recipe for the icing, more of a mock caramel, and the icing seized up early, because I ran out of powdered sugar while I was making THAT recipe. Lesson learned: before you start making Minnie's Caramel Cake, be sure the sugar supply isn't running low!!!)
Here's a teaser picture of the cake with the slightly failed (appearance wise, anyway. The taste was FABULOUS.) caramel frosting version.
What I have been doing?
(That's a slang form of the brand new verb that I just made up: which means "to compute")
Sorry for neglecting you.
In the words of Ahnold: "I'll be bahk."
Have you read The Help? What did you think?
Ever had Caramel Cake?
