Buster Cupcakes
Buster and I are making all the cupcakes out of "Hello, Cupcake" by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson, like Julie Powell did with Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking". We are open to gimmicks of any flavor!

Hey, nice cupcakes!

Sugar-Free Creations

My father was a Type 1 Diabetic and was very conscientious about his diet. He would occasionally have insulin reactions and need to go to the hospital. My family imprinted on me from the age of six that if Daddy had a a low blood-sugar incident or was acting strange, to bring him some candy or an apple and dial 911. I took this job very seriously, as I adored my father and and would do anything for him. I always loved sugar - candy, cookies, cake, ice-cream - dessert was the best part of the day. So my father not being able to eat any desserts really distressed me. I felt terrible for him that he couldn't enjoy the food that I loved so much.

This is a photo of me making him a sourdough bread round with spray cheese decorations so that he could have a special treat for his birthday. Probably his 40th birthday, celebrated with some good grass from Oregon and an extra large jug of Ernest and Julio Gallo!

My Birthday!

It's my birthday and I'll make all the pink Hello Buster Guitars if I want to... this is my favorite cake I made, I would say. Gluten-free and sweetened with honey except for the Hello Buster!
Other weird things I do on my birthday:

Bad Santa

Sometimes we get around to having a "Bad Santa" party on Christmas night- wear your pajamas, bring a book for the book exchange, maybe sing a song, and eat cupcakes! This is one of our favorites- Saraswati, Hindu Goddess of music and poetry. Especially beloved for the Guittard Chocolate hair...
  Waaaay too many organic fruit juice sweetened cupcakes- I guess I will have to share the leftovers with Buster....
 My favorite horrible picture of me- I am Mrs. Hanukah Harry and Mrs. Claus. Bring on the hot chocolate!

Rainbow Van, Man

Mr. Filmschool's birthday. When I met him, he had a giant white van with a hole in the floor you could see the street through. How far we have come....

                                          I wrote "Bon Voyage" on it for Paul. It was sort of for both of them.

                                                                 "Happy Trails!"

                                                                   "Peace"  & "LOVE"
