honey, i baked!

peg decided like 3 days ago
that i should enter this bake-off.
(and by that i mean, she called to tell me i was already signed up for it...)

the first annual bake-off of put on by my nutrition-by-calli friend.

needless to say,
i didn't think just a fab recipe of rolls would do the trick...

$100 dollar first prize
for some yumtown rolls....
that i made even healthier.
(next time i am going to try the "can't believe it's not butter" option..)

this is me and candice - she won in her category too.

i won't even lie, i am kind of a one-hit wonder.
there is not much that i bake...

but, because I like you:
