Weekly Photo Challenge: Sweets 4 the Sweet

Sweets are my downfall in life, my drug of choice.  Mostly chocolate, but I do gravitate towards anything that is sweet.  I am very particular that my sweets not be overly sweet.  How some can scoop teaspoon after teaspoon of sugar into their coffee or tea is beyond me.  Go with one Tablespoon of those flavored creamers or scant 1 tsp of sugar if used instead.

I should mention I have been a “borderline Diabetic” for many years and really have to watch my diet, exercise and my weight to keep it from going full force on me so messing with sweets can be as dangerous as a druggie with actual drugs.  I have been so bad for so many years now, that I got another wake up again a few weeks ago that will scare me into being good again for a while anyway.

Mostly I just do dark chocolate right now but on Valentines Day I was alone and feeling like I needed a treat with no chocolate in the house and bad weather outside.  I made some bite size brownies with my mini muffin tins and used those disposable Wilton bags to decorate them with homemade pink buttercream frosting.

Can use 1/2 C all purpose flour if cake flour n/a. Add pinch of salt if using unsalted butter & not watching sodium intake.

Still take out my kids artwork for holidays!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Tour Guide

Can I be a Tour Guide to a town I don’t fully know yet?

I’ve lived here a couple of years but know I will never see all this small town has to offer located near Irish Hills.  There are 5 Wineries in the immediate area.  I don’t drink the stuff but love to add wine to my cooking.  Stews, meats, stewed fruit, etc.

I had been wanting to move to this area for over 20 years and now that I have, I can’t afford it and the tourism has really died down.  Between fear of crime or terrorism and easy access to stuff in our virtual world, most don’t leave their homes but for work and school and then scurry back for safety and relaxation.  I really miss crowded tourist spots.  We used to take the kids to Prehistoric Forest, Stagecoach Stop, their favorite, Wamplers Lake, Twin Towers, Walker Tavern to name a few.
