I'll spot you making frosting from scratch, though, that's easy (though you wouldn't think so from reading the Joy of Cooking!). There's a recipe on the side of the Hershey's cocoa box that works perfectly. All you need is butter (1-2T I think), cocoa (for chocolate frosting), powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk.

Loved your 8 things! House Hunters is one of DH and my's guilty pleasures :)

Here's another frosting recipe for ya:
Cream cheese frosting is easy and delish -
3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks; 6 ounces) unsalted butter, softened
3 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

cream together the cream cheese and butter until creamy. Mix in the vanilla, then gradually stir in the confectioners’ sugar. Store in the refrigerator after use.

I made this for my sister's birthday cake, had some left over (a whole bowl full), and had to keep myself from spreading it on EVERYTHING - apples, waffles, celery (haha jj)

Okay, now I'm hungry!

Don't you just love these things? I'm usually a DWTS fan, but due to DVR conflicts I haven't been catching the latest seasons. My favorite has been Season 2 though...

Thanks for tagging me! This will be fun to do. Our travel wish lists will be very similar - the Grand Canyon is definitely near the top of my list as well.

Thanks for the tag!

And I am seriously impressed about the bagels! :)

I love this! I want to do it super bad, but I don't know 8 people to tag. As soon as I have more people to tag back I will do it. Thanks for thinking of me!
