I won!

The Office... (no, not that 'Office') ...My office.  The place I work -- had a St. Patty's Day Potluck today.  Several of us signed up to bring a dish to pass.  It could be green, St. Patrick's Day themed, authentic St. Pat's food, or something totally random.

I don't have many any authentic Irish recipes.  I'm not Irish.  DIY Guy is....which means our children are a "bit Irish"....but he doesn't have any authentic Irish family recipes either.  So I decided to come up with something ....let's say "themed" --- 

Blarney Stones!
These pieces of (scratch) cake,
covered on all four sides 
with a powder sugar frosting
then rolled in chopped peanuts
are one of my favorite desserts.

and I can only make them once a year
because I could eat 24 of them myself.

The other food item I made were
these cake-ball cupcakes.

Both sweets received compliments --
but it was the cake balls that won the 
competition for me!

$25 Gift Certificate!
TJ Maxx -- here I come!

Happy St. Patrick's Day !


  1. Awesome! Shall we call you Bakerella? That was quick implementation! I haven't even read all those PW posts yet.

    I'm guessing it won't take you long to spend that gift card! That's perfect for you.
