Odds and Ends


Peppermint vodka attacks small Christmas Village, more info at 5

Today’s post is an odds and ends sort of post. I’m making peppermint vodka. It’s still “cooking”. 6 ounces of vodka, 4 peppermint candies=a little bit of peppermint flavor. I’m adding more peppermints (5 more) and we’ll see if I get a more powerful peppermint kick.

I’ll keep you posted.


She loves hats......

My sweet girl loves her hats! CVS is selling this cute little beauty, my sweet tween would like it very much.


Crazy sale, crazy lady, brand new cake pop maker.

Heh. I need another kitchen gadget like I need hole in the head.

This adorably named cake pop maker was on sale at Kohl’s, Thanks to Rose for the heads up on the online deal!
plus it had a $10 rebate….making it less than $10. Unfortunately it’s a sale that has already ended.

I’ll let you know how the adorable gadget works!

What interesting things have you come across lately?

  1. I’m excited to hear how this peppermint vodka comes out! I made mint vodka once (vodka+fresh mint leaves+time on the counter) and it was good but not great. I love the flavor of peppermint around this time of year, would be fun to have an alcoholic version. And maybe even served in this: http://www.incrediblethings.com/home/candy-cane-shot-glass/ (Current goal is to find a way to make those myself…)

  2. Oh peppermint vodka sounds awesome!

  3. I’ve found infused vodkas to be totally hit or miss. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that yours turns out!

  4. You´re having a busy day! Looking forward to finding out how the vodka goes… 🙂

  5. I MUST make some peppermint vodka. Like, right now.

  6. I had no idea there was such a thing as a cake pop maker, I assumed there was a pan of some kind.

    • Previously, I was rolling the cake into balls by hand. Very time consuming, and filled with extra calories since I was using icing as the “glue” to keep the balls together. They may sell cake ball pans. I’ve not seen one though.

      I made little muffin balls this morning for my kids. They were tasty!

  7. I like the idea of cake pops without all the frosting, being a non-frosting lover myself. (I know! How am I even a girl with that comment?) I saw this gadget on Pinterest and one of my baker friends poo-pooed it because they’re not real. Round balls of cake look real enough for me! 😀

    • It works really well I made cake pops last night and muffin balls this morning.

  8. BABYCAKES. Now that’s just adorable.

    • I know, right?!?! It’s an adorable name for sure.

  10. Love the mix of cuteness here!

  11. That’s an adorable hat. And I saw that gadget on sale…really wanted it, too. But I have NO room for more gadgets! Eat some cake pops for me. 🙂

  12. Peppermint vodka sounds brilliant!
