More of Me to Love...

...I blame the baking.
Chocolate sponge sandwiched with marmalade cream and dusted with a snowman stencil.

You could resist the creamy, orange goodness in the center, but why?

Four ingredients: lemon cake mix (with pudding in mix), 1 egg, an 8 ounce container of whipped topping, and powdered sugar to roll balls of dough in.  Bake about 10 minutes at 325F.

They are insanely good.
 My final baking for the year (and probably until February when I play hostess to guild groups) is yet to come.  It will only be three, maybe four batches of cookies and they're all for gifts.  None shall remain in the house.

I remember now why I stopped baking.  It's because I put on weight quite easily... the extra 15 pounds I picked up since September are making me feel blah.  Therefore there will be no baking without specific reason for a while.  If it's not here, I can't eat it.

I'm going to go roll down the hill to today's guild meeting now.  Ugh.

I really cut back on baking a while ago, for the same reason (if I bake, I eat). Then, after Rick's heart attack, I cut back even more. Do you think I've lost one measly pound? :-(

Yum I gained 15lbs looking at them :-) The lemon ones sound ( and look ) really good.
