The Wife Can Cook?

Can you believe that is the response I get anytime I mention I cook? People give me that tilted dog head expression and say "Really, you cook?" Why is it so hard to believe? I know I am not a domestic goddess by any means. I would rather clean the barn than the house but I still can COOK! I love to cook. My mother MADE me cook growing up. She didn't want some poor man stuck with a girl that didn't know how to boil water. And boy is the husband grateful for that!

For Valentine's, I decided to make some little treats for my co-workers and the husband. I had ordered heart shape cupcake molds and wanted to try them out. Aren't they cute!
I filled them with Red Velvet cake mix, the Husband's favorite.

Then stuck em in the oven. They're almost done!

Let em cool off and remove the mold. Then they were iced with buttercream icing! Yummo!


I think everyone enjoyed my tasty little treats! So the Wife CAN cook! Hope your day is filled with sweet goodness! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

**I will resume answering the questions about me later this weekend. Thanks for being so interested!**

These look sooooooooooo good!
Since I can't be up and about much for the next three or four weeks, this best I can hope for, is some boxed donuts:(

Have you seen the little cupcake molds that have legs? They are so cute...and the Wilton giant cupcake pan...and the crazy maze brownie pan? That one is really neat, cause it makes every serving with the crusty edges.

You've been reading bakerella!

I am making the chocolate heart box cake...but I didn't have enough shortening to make fondant. The container lies. I seen a huge tub in the cupboard but there was a little more than a tsp in there. Who puts THAT back in the cupboard?

You mean I am NOT the only one who gets "Oh my gosh you can cook? Truly?". My now ex boyfriend was in awe of a 22 year old female who could, would and does cook often and gladly!
