♫ “Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime
Work out!” ♫
Okay, not really! Technically I am currently not employed besides my small beading business and selling stuff on EBay! (Hey a college girl has to get by somehow!) The kind of business I am talking about is a baking business! I have been receiving a lot of emails/comments asking if I sell(or would consider selling) and shipping my baked goods. Well I make them a lot for friends, family, etc. that ask for occasions and what not, but I had never thought of selling them. I think it sounds like a great idea though—I have one whole recipe book that I put together of all my tried and true recipes I have collected in the past couple years since I have become a “Mini Rachael” as my dad likes to call me (although Rachael isn’t big on baking). I would definitely provide ingredients and nutrition info and would be able to customize according to your likes. Just thought I would shoot the idea at you guys—if you could click the poll below and tell me if you’d be interested? If I get enough good feedback I will put together a list of things I would sell. I am also known for making really cute “Cakes in a Pot” for gifts and layered gift jars with mixes for soups, dips, cakes, cookies, trail mix etc. (btw, I could do the cheapest shipping techniques/rates possible—my mom works at the Post Office, so she knows the ropes!)
On another note, I got an apartment in my college town finally! It’s a two bedroom so I will have plenty of extra room! I am so happy, because originally there wasn’t any openings until August, but now I get to move in the beginning of July! I will def take pics tomorrow to show you guys! I am overly excited! So I will be packing, moving, etc. once again—does it ever end?! =) I’m putting together a post now for tomorrow since I will be leaving quite early for the drive. Heads up: You don’t want to miss tomorrow’s post—it to die for!
p.s. Check out my new features on the side bar—Cassie’s Cookbook and Cookbook of the Month which features a new cookbook I’ve recently got that I am lovin’!
I’ll leave you with a yummy dinner I had:
Simply but Savory Shrimp Kebabs
For all of you that have access to fresh from the sea seafood—I am extremely jealous—I have to resort to frozen shrimp which can be a bit of a drag in the taste department. So I need to jazz em’ up with a marinade. Marinades can add a lot of flavor but also a lot of calories too which is why I used my *special* low-cal marinade to baste these babies!
*Desired amount of honey mustard
*Dash of apple cider vinegar
*Squeeze of lemon juice
*Pinch of desired seasonings
Mix em’ all together and slather the kebabs prior to baking. I like kebabs not only for their taste, but because of the customization they allow. For mine I used bell peppers, shrimp, onions, zucchinis, and mushrooms. So put together your fav meat/veggie combo and give my marinade a shot!
What’s you favorite kebab combo?
