This is the cake I made, in a mug, with the microwave. (Isn't that the coolest thing ever!) The cake recipe is from http://be-it-ever-so-humble.blogspot.com/2010/02/lemon-mug-cake.html. I added a lemon glaze. I made the glaze by mixing the juice of half a lemon and about two and a half spoon fulls of powdered sugar (a regular kitchen spoon, not a table spoon, or teaspoon).
Here is another toy for my yet-to-be-born nephew. It's what I am going to call his Blankie Bear. It comes with detachable blankie. I think I am going to have to make a few more things for the little bear to hold before I mail it to my sister. Maybe even a tiny blankie bear.
I just preheated the oven and a cookie sheet to 400. Place the jars on the cookie sheet. It took about 20 min. less than this recipe normally takes. Half way through I rotated the jars. I watched until the crust was turning golden brown and the filling was bubbling.
Last August my husband and I moved from our cozy little Arkansas town to a city in Texas for me to go to grad school. Apartment living isn't ideal, in order to make it a little more like home I built a little patch of grass for the cats (and me). Here it is! These photos were taken the day I finished the project. Two months later the little grass patch is doing great. Now I have to figure out how to mow a 2ft x 4ft lawn.
