GSP Puppy & Lots of Fun!

Well.  I have been busy.  Super busy.  Not doing the usual crafting, sewing, napping, tv watching.  Nope, I have been puppy playing, feeding, walking, and training.  Last month, we got a German Short Haired Pointer puppy.  Her name is Maddie and she is WILD.

Here she is doing MY favorite thing : sleeping.  She is getting to the point where we let her cuddle on the couch, but ONLY if she is good.  If she bites or gets crazy, down on the ground she goes. 

She loves to lick.  Did you just eat a snack?  Feed me a treat?  Get over here and let me lick your hands/legs/arms.  She eats EVERYTHING and anything.

When we got her, her eye was all red and swollen.  An older dog nipped at her (wonder why...) and popped her eye out of the socket.  She lost her vision and it was pretty infected when we got her home.  She is doing good now though, you can only really tell when you look close.  Only one beautiful brown eye.

Whoa, what a sniffer.  She loves to sniff.  Let her pull on the leash for one second and she has her nose to the ground sniffing.  Sniffing what?  I have no idea...

She is getting super tall.  Gained 2 pounds this week.  Loves dinner time.  Walk time. Play time.  We are having bundles of fun and lots of frustrations.  :)

One Tsp. Online Recipe Storage

I have been searching for a way to store all my recipes online for a while now.  I tried Google Docs which I like, but it seems kind of messy.  I also tried allrecipes, but don't like that either.

I found One Tsp. today and I love it.  You can store up to 150 recipes for free, and if you would like to store unlimited recipes, it is only $5 a year.  Not bad for unlimited storage.  You can also download it to your iphone/ipad and clip recipes from websites for later.  It will make you a grocery list, let you share with friends, and sort your recipes however you would like.

I have already gotten started typing up my favorite recipes and ones I always seem to lose.  I think my favorite thing is the shopping list.  I love that you can type in your old family recipes and then just click shopping list and have it all laid out for you.  EASY  . . .  AS  . . . PIE.

I can't wait to start uploading and typing up ALL my recipes.  I will probably got over 150 in a matter of days, but there is a backup button so you can download everything to your computer.  I LIKE THAT.  I can't imagine losing all your precious recipes because you forgot your password or couldn't get to them.

Here is what my page looks like so far.  You can add photos too.  Pretty cool!  I am even more motivated to take pictures of all my desserts now.  I hate flipping through recipes trying to remember if I want THIS recipe or THAT recipe.  Was it FLUFFY or SOFT?  OR....  am do I have the complete wrong recipe?  No more confusion...

Scooter Cakes

If you live in Tucson, Arizona and you are celebrating a special occasion or love sweets, give me a call!  I am now taking custom cake orders.   I would love to make your day special.  You can find me at Scooter Cakes.  I love making bright colors, cute cupcakes, and simple favorites like strawberry shortcake.

I am also throwing cupcake decorating parties.  These would be perfect for bridal showers, tea parties, your child's birthday, or a night with the girls. More info here.

Cupcake parties are a great way to keep your guests talking about your party long after the favors are gone.  Each guest will take home 6 decorated cupcakes.

I will provide 6 baked cupcakes for each guest, icing, and piping tips and bags.  Please have a space large enough for your guests to sit and decorate.  (ie: long table with chairs, plastic tablecloth, and good lighting!)

 I am a sweet obsessed, chocolate loving, trend following, dessert maniac.  I started my journey on the road to SWEET HEAVEN long ago when I would run around the house with cake and whipped cream hiding from my mom.  Butter, whipped cream, sugar : these are my partners in crime.  Eggs, flour, vanilla : these are my accomplices to bigger and better things.

 I have a degree in Pastry Arts from the Culinary Institute of the Pacific in Hawaii.  I also have 3 1/2 years of experience in large scale production kitchens making the wonders of the dessert world.  Cakes, pies, tarts, mousses, ice creams, breads, and smiles.  That is my specialty!

Call Scooter Cakes today and plan your next party!
