back in june i gave up candy. there was no reason really, i just stopped eating it. and i don't really miss it. actually, when i see candy and people eating it all i can think of is the amount of sugar that they are eating (i see spoons of white sugar adding up in front of them) and how many calories i save by not eating it.
that being said- i eat sweets. cookies, cake, ice cream... yum. if it's in my house, it's in my belly though, so i try not to have that kind of stuff around. but, sundays are sweet days. starting last week, i have baked something every sunday (that is a whole 2 sundays i am talking about here. talk about tradition.) and it's good to share the wealth so that it is not in my fridge on monday. last week it was snickerdoodles. this morning the girls and i made a lemon poppy seed bundt cake. bundt. what a great word. it's so fun to say.
my lovely lemon-squeezing, sugar-spilling, fight-over-who-gets-to-pour-the-vanilla assistants:
i burnt the edges a bit- our oven apparently runs a little hot, but it was still good. i thought about taking a picture, just to show how good it looked, but my battery was flat out gone at that point.
so, i am looking for good recipes to try on sundays. i was thinking i want to make orange rolls, and some more bundt's just so i can say the word bundt. anyone have any good suggestions?
