Sing it Martha!

Hello out there!  Yes...I still exist.  I know, I know, where have I been?!  Here's the deal...

You know that heat wave you've heard about on the news?  Perhaps you experienced it yourself?  Well to say DC experienced it is quite the understatement.  In fact, if we're being real here, I'd say DC was punched in the face by that heat wave!  It wasn't just a day or was a MONTH!  Record highs, records for the most consecutive days over 90 degrees, blah-de-blah-blah.  You get it, right?  No?  Perhaps you need Martha and the girls to tell you...

Okay, so now that that's clear for you, let's move on. 

Last post I teased you with the prospect of wedding cake in your future.  Hmmm...yeah I don't have that for you.  I used a few recipes that turned out to be just so-so.  That...and did I mention the heat?  Let me tell you what results when you leave your butter on the kitchen counter to "soften" overnight?  Mhmm.  Melted butter ALL OVER YOUR COUNTER.  And the cereal boxes.  And the pot holder.  And down the side of the cabinets.  Awesome.  I should have taken this as a bad sign and stopped there.  But noooo...I'm a glutton for punishment!  So I switched on the a/c window unit in our dining room (let me clarify...a room NEXT to our kitchen) and charged ahead.


The oven heated our kitchen to epic proportions.  The swiss buttercream melted down the sides of the cake.  The cake was a tad on the dry side, and yet somehow completely fragile, and really enjoyed falling apart to the touch.  It still came together, and we still ate it (okay...we're cheesy...we fed each other the first bite).  We threw the rest of it away, though.  Just not good.

BUT!  There is a light at the end of this dreary little summer tunnel!

Ohhh yeaaaahKitchenAid ice cream maker attachment for my birthday?  Don't mind if I do!  :) Gosh that husband of mine is a nice guy!  So what's in your future, as a reader of this blog?  How about blueberry cheesecake ice cream?  Cherry almond coconut fro-yo?  Caramel chocolate chip ice cream?  Oh yeah babe.  And the best part?  My sweet little kitchen gets a break from the heat (well...from the oven's heat, at least!).  Keep your eyes peeled!
