remember these?

Nostalgia makes me bake more often than any other feeling...and it happened again today with these. They are as good as I remember them as a kid!

Window washing

I bet your window guy isn't this cute! (Your windows may be cleaner when he's done tho:)

corn dogs, or puppies, or frogs or lizzards

I love fair food. This is not a question of nutrition. It's a question of tradition. Lately a lot of people have mentioned going to the fair and that makes me think of funnel cakes, elephant ears and of course, corn dogs. We can't buy corn dogs here. To be honest, if we could, I probably wouldn't eat more than two or three per year. But....since we can't get them and I have been wanting one, we made some today. It was a first try, but honestly, they weren't too appealing. It looked like the dogs really had legs and they split open and filled with oil. Next time I need to make the batter thicker and cook it longer. They all disappeared within a short period of time in spite of being less than perfect specimens.
