The week has sped by, and it's time for another "Foodie Friday."
Before we get started, I wanted to tell you about a new, exciting Friday event. Artie Ben at Color Outside the Lines is launching "Fido Friday" this coming Friday, April 10.
My very own design dog, Mister, will be interviewed by Abby and D. This weekly event will be tremendous fun!
This week's "Foodie Friday" post concerns....
Dressing up Store-Bought Desserts
When I am lost in the tulips, cooking falls by the wayside, and I rely on store-bought goodies to fill our bellies, and to supply myself with carbs.
Today, Dr. Gollum and I hit Publix and Kroger. I found some irresistible hot cross buns, blueberry muffins, and a simple chocolate pound cake.
Then I got busy.
Pansies and whipped cream are the busy cook's bestest friends.
I made mud pies when I was a scruffy kid--and this cake reminds me of rich, dark Louisiana dirt that always made great pies.
The peepers are still here, eyeing the pansies.
I don't know why, but I can't cook while I'm writing. I burn everything. My mind is somewhere else. But! Decorating store-bought food is another story. I love it.
What You Need:
1 "store-bought" chocolate pound cake
Whipped cream -- homemade or Extra Creamy Cool Whip
Chocolate pound cake from Kroger bakery
Hot Cross Buns from Publix bakery
Cool Whip Extra Creamy (or heavy whipping cream)
This week, I'm armed with Slim Jims to fill my belly while I peruse the delicious recipes from the potluck.
