I've got a problem...

There is a sugar bug in my brain, I swear.  I'm not normally this irrational about my sweets.  Every thing I see is an excuse to bake more.  Peanut butter cookies? I've been craving those for weeks!  Date night, I guess I need cupcakes! You invited us out? I suppose you deserve peanut butter crispy bars!  Mom needs cookies? Chocolate chip, coming up! Coming over for breakfast? Orange and oat scones it is!  And finally the most bizarre: 3 cups of whip cream going to expire today? I'll make a Frozen Grand Marnier Torte with Spiced Cranberries.  Because making dessert for twelve on top of all those other treats make sense because AT LEAST I SAVED THE WHIP CREAM! 

I'm not exaggerating when I say all of those were made in a twenty-four hour period.  I'm a glutton, sue me.

  1. Haha love the last picture! I will take any extra sweets off your hands! Especially those cupcakes

  2. Well you cant let your whip cream go bad. That is a waste! And baking for company or date night is perfectly rational. Now what are you going to do with it?! Sell it to your neighbors....

  3. Hahaha! I am not on a gluten or dairy free diet so bring it all on!!!!
