I just deleted

5,000 messages from my deleted file of my inbox. Belated new year's resolution is to get down to a manageable number - what's that? 1,000? 2,000?

A variation on Martha's birthday cake from the Martha baking bible aka baking porn. Filled with two layers of caramel buttercream (left over from Saturday's cake) and one layer of roasted caramel bananas (idea also stolen from Saturday's cake). Brought to a friend's birthday party and was a big hit. Only bummer was the meringue flopped a bit and the points weren't as high as I would have liked - also went overboard with my torch. That's two bummers, isn't it? I think I need a bigger star tip!

This weekend I baked...

A crazy gooey and good Banana Caramel cake from Apartment Therapy Kitchen for our break fast dinner. Topped it with Caramel Whipped Cream. No photo because it tasted better than it looked!

My favorite lunch

Is Amy's Soy Mac n Cheese. Don't get me wrong, I'm a dairy girl through and through but I can't get enough of this stuff.

Today I baked....

Key Lime Pie - used the recipe on the back of the key lime bottle, made my own crust and put in one of my new 9" tart pans. I think the crust is going to be very thick, but since it's crushed graham crackers and butter and sugar, I say the more the merrier.

Peach crisp with raspberries - raspberries were 4.99/pint so I used strawberries instead. Also added chunks of bread to soak up the juices. For sweetness I used maple syrup.
