The Real Housewife of H2oVille

If you've happened to read a couple of my tragic posts where I attempted to bake these cookies and this angel food cake, then you already know I've inherited my Mother's penchant for using the smoke detector as the timer.  However, I think I may give it another go.  But it's okay, it's okay because I understand now what I did wrong.

I wasn't properly attired. 

Do swimmers try to race without their speedo?  Soccer players without their cleats?  Do stuntmen allow themselves to be set ablaze without their fire-retardant jumpsuit?  Absolutely not.  So what was I thinking trying to bake without an apron? *slaps hand to forehead*

Luckily, I have a foolproof plan to remedy this.  I will win this adorable cupcake apron that I will don on my next baking foray that will undoubtedly guarantee my culinary success.

Is this picture really blurry or did E2 slip something in my coffee? 

The Real Housewife of H2oVille is hosting this giveaway.  Oh, and the apron comes with a cupcake recipe book.  So, I don't see how my plan CAN'T work.  And with that, I have some takeout to order.


  1. Are you going to wear anything underneath it?

  2. Hmm. Hot, popping oil is coming to mind and I scar easily. Plus, is that even sanitary?
    Although after a few glasses of vino, sanitation be damned! It's not like whatever I make will be fit for human consumption anyway.

  3. I also use the smoke detector as a timer. You are not alone.

  4. You'll turn into Elizabeth Montgomery.

  5. ...mothers penchant for using the smoke detector as a timer! Best line ever!!!

  6. Yeah, that photo is really blurry. My poor eyeballs.

  7. What a fool-proof plan! I don't see any way this can go wrong!

  8. The apron is obviously the key to success!

  9. Sassy Pants- Sadly, that helps.

    Tony Van Helsing- Huh? When she played Lizzie Borden? What are you saying? That I'll end up a crazy spinster who hacks up the people who complain about my cooking?

    Oilfield Trash- *shaking head in mock disgust*

    Sandra- Luckily I inherited some of her good qualities too.

    Remy- Okay, not just me then. Misery loves company. I'll pay for your first set of contacts. Fair?

    Andrew- My thoughts exactly!! ;)

    AmandaDF- I don't know how I missed it. It's SO obvious.

  10. i know i can always count on you for a laugh! i had to disconnect our smoke detector...LOL

  11. the apron is definitely the most important part of cooking

  12. Vic- Good call. You can only beat it with the broom so many times.

    J. Littlejohn- I concur. Who needs skills when you've got a super cute apron?

  13. Everybody knows you need the right apron to bake! Duh!!
