Plus, I've been distracted by baking projects that I have floating around in my head. We have a potluck breakfast at my office every year for Halloween, and this evening I baked a cake for that. My birthday is coming up next week, and I'm going to make myself an awesome vanilla and lime flan that I saw on an episode of Planet Food a few weeks ago. Then there's the holidays.... I automatically go into high gear this time of year when it comes to baking.

Showing off my new Kitchen Aid Artisan-series stand mixer. I love this thing. I've had it for about a month, and I've already used it a LOT.
I got this mixer for such a good price, and there was a rebate on top of that... it was a deal too good to pass up!
Just to prove I'm not totally obsessed with baking right now, here are a few photos of the great outdoors taken recently.

Stay tuned for more baking obsessions...
