THE Oven Mitt & A Cooking Class

So, THE oven mitt (in the post below), is made by Pomegranate inc. and I bought it at a local store. Isn't it adorable? In fact, most things on their website are. Check it out! Also, I happened to pick up another mitt or two and I'm thinking about having my first giveaway that will include the mitt! I figure I've won two giveaways so maybe I should host one of my own. Stay tuned for that :)

The shirt in the post below (last picture) is from Forever21. I got it when I was probably a sophomore in college. (see, I can make their clothes last ;)

Question for you all....if you ask me the brand or where something is from...should I add it in to the post you've seen the item in, or should I put it at the top of another post like I did above?

Since this post was sparked my the oven mitt, I am going to include some fun pics from a cooking class I went to last Thursday afternoon :) My friend Tallee nannies for a sweet family and the daughter, Vivian, hosted a cooking class. She is going to NYC in a few weeks and Tallee thought it would be a good way to raise some money for her trip! Plus, she is a WONDERFUL cook! She has made some of the most fabulous cakes I've ever seen. We had a lot of fun :)

The hosts made cupcakes with the initials of those who were planning to attend..cute idea!
The printed up the recipes for us!

Our cooking class :)
Vivy sent us home with treat bags (peanut butter balls inside!!)
Here is the recipe the hosts gave us for the DELISH Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Balls
1 1/2 sticks butter, melted
1 cup peanut butter
1 lb. box of powdered sugar
4 cups of Rice Krispies
2 bags of chocolate chips (we used Ghirardelli)

-Put Rice Krispies in a gallon bag and whack until slightly crushed.
-In a mixer bowl, combine butter and peanut butter while gradually adding sugar and cereal. Mix everything together and the mixture will be very dry.
-Roll peanut butter mixture into small balls and place on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper.
-In a double boiler, melt all chocolate over medium heat then reduce heat to low. Dip the peanut butter balls in the chocolate. Refrigerate then serve when chocolate is hard.


I am so happy it is Friday. This week hasn't been the greatest but ended up much better than it started :) I plan to relax tonight (all weekend really)..I wish it would include a glass of wine but I don't think my prednisone would like that ..or work as well as it should. With my goal being stated to relax and rest, our sweet friends Jessica & Kyle offered to bring us dinner tonight. They are so sweet and we love hanging out with them.

I am liking having my new blog domain :) I've had a few people ask about the blogs I had listed on my page. Well, I don't know WHERE they are :( When I go to layout, it says I've never entered any in...but I have. I'm hoping they are lost in transition...but if they don't appear back in a few days, I'll be adding them back :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend & thanks for being such sweet bloggy friends!
