Yesterday I felt myself slowly coming back to normal from after a month of hectic work. There was no turkey for our Thanksgiving, but we were with good friends, there was good food on the table and glasses of wine and cocktails were poured freely. It was a holiday and it was good to finally relax and sink into happiness. This week I’ll be posting the 2 wonderful recipes I made for our meager dinner, but first, I’ll point you in the direction of Poppytalk where I posted a recipe pretty great carrot spice cake.
It was this carrot cake that helped to sustain me during the craziness of the One of a Kind show that I was preparing for. Need some quick energy? Grab a slice of cake. Quick breakfast before I ran out the door? Yup, eat that cake. Really, this was a muffin recipe that I turned into loaf pan (who wants to fiddle with greasing up muffin cups? Not me!) and I loved it. I have a lot of carrots in my fridge and to my shame, I have never made carrot cake (though I love it something fierce), so when I found a recipe that I liked, I adapted it to suit my needs & my cupboard.
OOPS! Forgot to add the temperature in the recipe, so preheat your oven to 375F and you’ll be good to go.
And while you are checking out Poppytalk, you can even see some photos that Jan snapped of us in front of our booth – while I do look like a giant in those photos, it should be mentioned that the other 2 Hob Snobs are quite short, so I’m not a total freak of nature. As for the show, not only did we sell lots of our crafty stuff, we also won first prize for best booth display! Considering that there were well over 200 other vendors, we were elated that all of our hard work was recognized.
