Happy New Year! I just wanted to take the time to thank each and every one of you guys for coming by and supporting my blog all year long (even when I seemed to fall off the face of the planet at times). I would be no where without you guys and can’t believe I’m already over 300 followers!
I know, I know.. I didn’t get to finish my 12 days of cookies. Life seemed to catch up with me in more ways than one. I’ll actually be starting school on.. MONDAY! Eek! And not at CSUN, that wretched school, but at a private school called National University! They have a better program for me that allows me to get my Masters in Education AND my teaching credential at the same time. The only downside is that it is a bit more expensive since it is a private school and I’ll be paying for half since my parents can’t pay it all.
With that being said, I’m afraid I won’t have the necessary funds to update my blog as much as I did. Baking is not a cheap hobby with all the ingredients I have to buy. Before, I didn’t have to worry about money and could spend it freely on a pound of macadamia nuts and good quality chocolate. Now, 3 out of 4 of my paychecks will be going toward school, while the other paycheck will go toward gas/food/entertainment. I guess welcome to the real world, right? It sucks!
Anyways, I added a donation button on the left side of my blog if you guys feel so inclined to help out to keep my blog running. I promise that all the money donated will go directly to my blog and for creating new goodies for you guys to see/try out! I truly love baking and will do my best to update as much as I can.
Moving on.. I was craving something quick and easy and ended up making rice crispy treats. I spruced them up by using cookie cutters to cut out some shapes. Cookie cutters are always a good idea for just about anything. Can you guess what each one is? My boyfriend guessed 3/4. Special little surprise goes to the one who guesses all of them correctly! I’ll reveal what they really are in the next post.
