Butterscotch throwdown

April 25, 2011

Wow, there has been a bunch of stuff going on in my little corner of the world!  The biggest news is that I went back to work after being home with my kiddos for almost 12 years!  I’m working with the Title I program at our elementary school and spend my days with beginning or struggling readers.  Couldn’t be more perfect for me and I love it.

I’ve got two weeks under my belt now and I’m getting used to the schedule and trying to get myself more organized.  My kids and my kitchen will be pleased when I start making good stuff again.

So let me start by telling you about my family’s annual Throwdown competition.  We’ve been doing it a few years now and it’s a blast.  There’s a “secret” ingredient, official ballots, and an awesome trophy.  And we take this very seriously!  This year, the ingredient we had to bake with was butterscotch.  I’ll share the three recipes with y0u this week, then I’ll let ya know which of us was triumphant.  Stay tuned!

    I love it!! I did a throwdown with my Boyfriend’s family for pumpkin cookies awhile back and we’ve been talking about doing another one for cheesecake. I love the idea of official ballots and a trophy to add to the mix to make it more fun! Hmm.. I might hit up a thrift store to find a silly bowling trophy or something random.. Can’t wait to see the recipes!

    HOW are you doing it? I subbed part-time for three weeks this month and it nearly killed me. I loved the job (working with three little guys with autism), but I got so behind it wasn’t even funny. Please feel free to share any strategies you come up with!
