Falling off the wagon


I really don't use boxed cake mixes, but my sister introduced me to Trader Joe's Vanilla Cake Mix... and it's GOOD. If you look up close, you can actually see the black specks of vanilla bean. They also make a Meyer Lemon cake mix which I bought but haven't tried yet, but if you're ever feeling lazy and just want a quick cake fix, this is the perfect cake mix. I used the leftover buttercream from my January Martha cake to frost the cupcakes so I was done with these in a snap.

On another note, I just want to say that I LOVED last night's episode of Grey's Anatomy. I think McSteamy is my new McDreamy (I have a weakness for jawline beards / chin curtains). I hated the ending. Meredith and George. YUCK. It's like watching an incestuous relationship unfold. I wanted Meredith to hook up with McSteamy so there would be tension between all four of them. And since I can't get enough, I've also been reading the blogs ABC has for Grey's Anatomy.

i saw that cake mix when i went to TJ's to buy my sugar-free cookies -- but i said i'll wait until later to buy it...
yes, i agree w/ you on grey's anatomy -- i think she was just inebriated and didn't know what she was doing...(i'm hoping the storyline falls something like that).

Oh now I'm going to have to try it. I saw it a few weeks ago, but passed it up.

Those look yummy, as does McSteamy!

Dude, box cake mixes are ok! They really are! And Trader Joe's rocks! And I agree with the George thing being TOTALLY YUCK!!
