Catching Up!

It’s been a long time since I have blogged. I’ve been busy at work, and I update my Facebook page more than this blog. Sorry!

It’s a new year, 2014, and I will be on here more often instead of watching YouTube videos all day.  j/k, but seriously, what better way to unwind after a hard day on my feet at work than to watch funny videos? :-D 

New things I made last year or plan to make before Valentine's Day:
  • Star Crackers, both savory and cinnamon sugar
  • Chocolate-covered peanut butter Ritz cracker cookies
  • Red Velvet cookies dipped in White Vanilla Coating
  • Chocolate Boxes (soon - maybe tonight)

I love to make all kinds of peanut brittle, so I offered a workshop on how to make peanut brittle in December. I may do that again this year. 

I also saved my mom’s life in July when I rushed her to the hospital in the middle of the night. The surgeon said she could have died. That was the scariest thing ever! She got to come home 9 days later, and I took good care of her. Don’t worry. She’s okay now. 

I won tickets to go up in a helium balloon last fall, so we went to Pigeon Forge and did that. It was so fun! I won a grocery store gift card that I used for Christmas dinner. :-) 

Send me an e-mail if you want me to make you something, or check out my Blue Ribbon Treats page on Facebook!

Christmas Is Coming, and I'm Ready!

Sorry to disappear on you, but I’ve been busy. For awhile I was working two jobs, but now I just work one and still make things on the side to sell.

The truth is, blogging is not fun. Facebook is more fun. And I have my own page there! It's easier to post new photos of my products, and they are organized into albums there. So, if you are interested, go to Blue Ribbon Treats and check out all the pretty things I make!

I made some car soaps last week for fun. My little brother and baby sister will like them. Aren’t they cute? They can be almost any color and are just a dollar each. (click on the photo for a better view)

So, I may stop in here now and then. I love the countdown to Christmas thing! But check out my Facebook page, okay?

Merry Christmas!

I Love It When This Happens!

Last week I took some fresh-baked dreamsicle cookies to my voice coach. This week when I walked into the studio, the first thing he said was, "Jasmine! I loved those cookies you made! You really should market them! You have a winner!" 

My favorite part of baking (other than eating the goodies) is making people happy. Those cookies made my grandma happy, they made my uncle happy (I traded him for some minor car repairs), and they made my voice coach happy. They make me and my mom happy too! If you have never tried a dreamsicle cookie, you don't know what you're missing!

My Three Easter Treats

Sorry no time to blog! I am working two part-time jobs! One serving drinks at a cafeteria-style restaurant, and one in fast food, mixing up the ice cream drinks and shakes and such. I love it!

Here's what I made for Easter:

1) Easter dipped peanut brittle, orange flavored, and sprinkled with fun. :-)

2) Dreamsicle cookies - my grandma loved these and went home with the recipe!

3) Popcorn cake for Easter/Mom's birthday

Just so you know ...

Hi! It's me, Jasmine. I'm still here! lol  I was going to make candy and cake balls for Valentine's Day, but then the restaurant started calling me in a LOT so I haven't had time to make anything. So I'm glad I didn't tell you that I was going to!

But, if you ever want anything, just let me know. I will do my best for you.

Christmas is one week away!

Free delivery if you're local! Pick up stocking stuffers here! I've got pins and pretty poinsettia soaps for the ladies, I've got some magnets and some cute ornaments, and I can make more kid soaps (I sold out of those at the holiday fair). My chocolate lollipops are 50 cents each, and I can make green, red, orange, chocolate brown, and white mint. You can order Christmas peanut brittle with holiday sprinkles or dipped in chocolate and sprinkled or not. I can make more cake bites too. They are like cake balls except they are square like presents for your mouth!
