Baking Withdrawals

Well friends, my goal was (and still is) to post to my blog at least once a week... Obviously I have yet to reach that goal but I promise I'm trying!

In the last post I mentioned that "SunniSweets has officially been food-spirated!!!" or something like that. Now I realize that I have yet to prove my food-spiration, but there really is a good reason for my non-blogging (and non-baking). Besides getting adjusted to my new schedule here at school, I haven't even gotten settled in my apartment yet! I'm currently crashing at a friend's place until everything gets situated.

So you can understand why I'm having baking withdrawals right? I'm feeling out of place, stress with classes are mounting rapidly and I'm unable to indulge in my number one stress reliever. :(

But don't doubt me just yet!

Within the next couple of weeks I should be posting regularly, getting more followers, and BAKING... with pictures to prove it!!! However I must warn you, my picture taking skills are definitely no where near the many "expert" food bloggers. I seriously doubt that you'll be commenting on how great my photography skills are.

Anywho! I shall return soon to get this thing goin'! Making this the best blog of your life!

Well, probably not... but I'm sure I've just always wanted to say that...

Hi, I am a food stalker...

Okay, so I have a confession to make. I am a complete food addict. But not in the way that you may think. You see, I have a tendency to make and bake all sorts of delicious goodies and not eat any of it. I'll bake some brownies, have a little taste and then package them up to give away to all of my college friends... saving just two or three for myself. Well, within the past year or so I've taken my food addiction to new heights... a whole different dimension if you will. I, Amber LaRae, can (and will) spend hours stalking other people's food blogs and websites. Really, I mean hours. But it can't be just any 'ol type of food blog. Oh no... It MUST focus on JUST food. I admit that I find the posts about family vacations and what not cute and interesting but in actuality, I could care less. *Gasp* I know... spoken like a true, heartless addict.

There's just something about being able to look at some one else's beautiful, yet edible creations that send me in my own little dream world where I have some sort of epiphany about my next adventure in the kitchen. Now, over the course of the last 7 days, I have taken the liberty of bookmarking more than 20 foodie blogs that spark my interest with their visual decadence.

Anywho, I've confessed all this to simply say that I have officially decided that I will soon be creating an inspired mess of donuts, cakes, pies, breads and of course other items meant to be consumed at times other than dessert. SunniSweets has officially been food-spirated!!!

Long time no post!

Okay, so I've been away for a while... Well, ahem, I guess I should say I've just been away. I had actually just forgotten that I even created a blog. So lets try this again...

Hey there! I'm Amber! A second year chemistry major who enjoys baking and cooking to no ends! =)

Better? Good! Now that we've gotten that out of the way....

This has, by far, been the most stressful semester ever!!! The product of all the stress? Tons and tons of baked goods. I've developed an even deeper addiction to baking. At LEAST once a week I find myself in the kitchen... covered in flour... all giddy and clicking my heels...

Mmmmm... I'm excited just thinking about it... Aren't you?!

Anywho, since my camera hasn't worked since oooh, I don't know... the beginning of the semester... I won't go into all the things I've successfully (and unsuccessfully) baked. You know, like cookies, cakes, cupcakes, ice cream, donut holes, rice krispy treats, apple turnovers, and crepes... Yup, crepes...

See... looky...

There's brown sugar and cinnamon apples in them... yummy. =) (Uh, I guess I should mention that this picture is from this past summer... but it works.)

So yup, that's what I'm capable of... And hopefully I'll be able to keep you posted.

Until next time have a good week and happy... uh... happiness??? And baking of course...

Let's Get Started!

Hey there!

For a couple of years now my mom has been telling me that I should start my own blog about this or that... well, now that it's summer time and school's out (not really, I'm taking summer courses at the community college while I'm home) I'll be cooking and baking like there's no tomorrow. I've only been home for about three weeks but I've managed to bake 2 batches of cookies and brownies, banana bread and other random goodies that I tweak or create.

So, this blog is going to be something of an outlet. I plan to take pictures of what I've made and maybe reveal a little more about myself. Hopefully I get a few followers and people are actually interested in my many, upcoming kitchen ordeals. Until next time... happy creating!
