and so one thing lead to another...

I was in Sam's Club on Monday. My favorite thing to buy at Sam's Club? Well behind gasoline, it is strawberries and blackberries.

The strawberries were huge. Seriously. They were like the size of a small apple. The blackberries were okay, not the best, but good enough. So on Monday night, when I got home from class, I had a bowl of berries. While I was eating these berries, I thought to myself, I sure wish I had some pound cake to go with these berries.

So, one thing leads to another and voila...

On Tuesday afternoon, I made Saint Paula's (Paula Deen that is...and I'm not sure on the Vatican's stance, but I've decided to give her Sainthood) Sour Cream Pound Cake. I found the recipe and really she has 4 different recipes for Pound Cake in my cookbook: Cream Cheese, Chocolate Cream Cheese, Sour Cream and Chocolate Sour Cream. I wanted to make just a good old Southern sour cream pound cake, I couldn't believe that I had all the ingredients...What luck! Honestly, I think discovering that I actually had 3 cups of Cake Flour (that was still in date no less) may me feel more like a grown-up that paying the monthly mortgage ever has!

Anyway, it had to cook FOR-EVAH (90 minutes), but it was so worth it. It is super yummy and it makes my bowl of berries really sing. Or maybe that was me singing for joy. Yum yum yum yum YUUUUUM!
I think it is called pound cake because it will only cause you to a gain a pound, right? Hello? Seriously? That's not how it works? Now you tell me!

Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1ingredients... Milk Honey Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt) Oats (old fashioned, not quick...you probably could do steel cut too)  I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a meas…

It's all about the dress...

I mean I guess it's really all about getting married, but come on, you always anticipate the dress right?  Well holy moly folks!  Today a big secret was released to the press.  No, we still don't know which dress or tiara Kate will be wearing, but we heard for the first time that Princess Diana had a back-up dress!  Here are some of the pictures and sketches...

And you know what?  I like the back-up dress better than the one she wore!  I know, I know.  I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but I'll just confess it right now... My name is Kara and I've never thought Princess Diana's dress was all that and a bag of chips.  Nope.  Not my favorite Royal Wedding Dress by any stretch of the imagination.  What is my favorite?  Probably the one that Sarah Ferguson wore when she married Andrew...
It had beautiful beading and stitching throughout.  Also on the train it had an "A&quo…

Pumpkins, Gourds & Flowers, oh my!

Yesterday, I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  Lisa, Jennifer, and I went as my birthday outing.  We got a late start due to some court delays, so we stopped for lunch first.  I needed some make-up too, so we went to Neimans.  We ogled some purses, had lunch, I got some make-up and then we headed out to the arboretum (in the rain).

It was raining pretty good on the way over, but luckily, we only needed umbrellas for a few minutes.  Thankfully the sun never came out, because it was so humid, I'm pretty sure we would have melted. 




First, we made our way toward the Pumpkin Village...

I love how they made garland out of the mini-pumpkins...






These rose bushes were just stunning!  The roses on each bush varied in color from a coral, to a blush, to a purple hue...
It was Fall at the arboretum, and pumpkins, gourds, and mums are a large part of the visit.  However, they also have a Chihuly art exhibition going on.  I took so many pictures, I HAVE to make that it's whole separate post.  …
