More lovely things

Not only did I have this on my list of things to do this weekend … I also had this.

Life List: Make lovely things

Nom nom nom.

Kind of like perfection … which is totally heaven in your mouth.

My mom had printed out the directions and brought them up with her, but I’m a picture girl (surprise huh?) so I stuck with my trusty Kitchen Companion and went for it.

I like to measure my success as I go against the photos Pioneer Woman provides along the way.

Some times I completely freak out – but keep going and trust that the end result will at least resemble 10% of what I’m really supposed to be doing. In this case, we did just fine.

Which is kind of what this Life List is all about, any way. Living the adventure of life as if it’s a front row seat on the roller coaster you’re strapped in to. And oh-my-ever-loving-goodness … when someone tries something I’ve made, baked, cooked – whatever the case may be – and their eyes shine with delight … there’s is nothing higher on the list for me in the form of a compliment. But it’s not even that – it’s knowing my hands are capable of love in forms I haven’t even recognized yet.

It may be called a “Life List” but it’s really just a recipe for a full life, a sweet, full life.
