Dirty Dishes


I saw this plate above the sink at my husband's Grandma's house and I instantly related. I'm guessing it's older than I am but I want one!

Last week I made two batches of cupcakes (yellow and strawberry) and one set of red velvet cup cake pops with my friend Auburn for a birthday party. That same day, I made a pie to take to dinner (thankfully I had the crust already made in the fridge from an earlier project). I made two batches of brownies for Cub scouts (one Oreo Cheesecake, one topped with Reese's peanut butter cups and Rolos). I also made Chocolate chocolate cupcakes (tomorrow's Dorie treat) for a Halloween party. I've had fun but I'll admit there have been a lot of dishes. And we've been eating very well (and not just desserts, I assure you, I've sent most of them right out of the house!)

I clearly need to move to your neighborhood, Anne! Wow, you've been a busy baker! I may need to come back and bug you for the Oreo Cheesecake brownie recipe. I love that plate -- very wise words.

Oh man, all those treats sound heavenly, but I agree, those darn dirty dishes get ridiculous! I've had some crazy high piles in my kitchen that drive me nuts! Can't wait till my boys are old enough to do them!

haha! My grandmama always had a plate on her kitchen wall that says "Kissin Don't Last... Cookin Do." I always laughed my head off when I read it. Mainly because my grandmama would NEVER speak such improper English. She gave me the plate at my bridal shower... but I'm here to tell you... kissin DOES last!

Hopefully you're done with dishes for a while... maybe your honey can take you out to dinner and spare you dishes for a night.

I love the plate. Sounds like you've really been busy. I am hoping to give those cupcake pops a try sometime in the very near future.
And the oreos with the candy on them...YIKES! They sound awesome.

Oh how I love red velvet cup cakes. You've been quite the busy baker!

I like those types of grandmotherly homespun pearls of wisdom!

Yum yum and fun fun! Thanks for helping me out. I loved making them together and getting your "secrets".

I love to bake, and these brownies you are talking about with Reese's or topped with Rolo's sound delish! I can't seem to find the recipe for them on your sight, is there any way you could post it for me, or email it to me.. My email is

Thanks again!!! :)
