This IS a year for great new music! Ihad a discussion last night with a friend saying he had already decided that this year is much better in the way of music than last and I have to agree.

Hope you are having a great time getting ready for Valentine's day! I've been working hard behind the cupcake counter helping everyone celebrate their day with delicious cupcakes. Sorry for my absence this is a BUSY week for the cupcake girls... will be back soon.

For Valentines I joined in on a swap through my friend Raechel's blog and am sending off a great little package of cheer.
wood you be mine? veneer wood post card
Gourmet Vanilla Marshmallows rolled in cocoa
Faux bois tshirt
All packaged up and ready to mail off if this snow would stop and I feel brave enough to leave the house.
In my opinion one needs these books and shouldn't go without. My Bread, Jim Lahey and Rose's Heavenly Cakes, Rose Levy Beranbaum. I don't have either yet because I just discovered them last night while I was at my friends for a Super Bowl party. But they are going immediately on my wish list on Amazon and I hope I don't have to go to long without them.
I first knew about the My Bread several months ago via Martha Stewart but hadn't actually held the book in my hands until last night. I thumbed through every delightful page... beautiful pictures and really easy directions to fallow.
Rose's Heavenly Cakes was remarkable with every type of cake you could imagine. I also loved how the ingredients were laid out in a simple table just like how My Bread was done. Why is this not done in EVERY cookbook?
Today I am baking a Rustic Italian bread from my America's Test Kitchen baking book. I am waiting for the sponge to finish falling so I can proceed onto the next step.
wish me luck!

I am not ashamed to say it... I watched Bright Star 3 times this weekend and after reading Poppytalk this morning I had to pass on this beautiful article and handwritten Valentines by Hello Handmade. I think this would be a wonderful way to express you admiration for someone.
