Saturday Sprinkles (6/22/13)

It’s been an eventual few weeks here at Pixiedustkitchen!

From a bloggy standpoint, I had my first photo ever accepted to TasteSpotting! I’m really happy, especially since I don’t even have a DSLR camera! You can check out my gallery here. 

Personally, I’ve started my new job. It’s my first “Big Girl” job that can hopefully carry me through college and grad school, and I might even be able to have a career at that company. I’ve been picking things up fairly well. I finish training next week and I have an assessment, so hopefully I’ll do well!

Vintage Pixie Dust Kitchen: My first waffle iron that my parents got 12 years ago when I first started to really get into baking and cooking. It makes the most adorable mini waffles and I still use it all the time. When I’m at school and in the dorms, I use it to make brownies and cupcakes with shake n pour brownie mix.  I might have some recipes using it coming soon, so keep an eye out!

I’m a few weeks late, but I have mixed feelings about the new Star Trek. I love it, but there are some things that aren’t quite compatible with the original series, and I don’t like Kirks attitude (I LOVE TOS Kirk) but it was still fantastic regardless and Checkov is still my baby.

Brian told me about this European store Cath Kidson and I’m mad because OMG IT’S AMAZING especially the kitchen section but it’s so expensive plus paying for shipping across the pond… 🙁 The kitchen section has the most amazing things that could be used for props, like this polka dot tray, or this cupcake stand.

I’m basically in love.

I don’t think I ever shared all of my foodie birthday gifts. I’m so easy to shop for.

I went to ABC Cake Supplies in Phoenix, AZ and there was a whole wall of sprinkles. Wall. Of. Sprinkles. And an entire aisle of cupcake liners. I think I’m in love. If you’re ever in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, I highly recommend. They also have a website! 

The Newest Disney/Pixar movie came out yesterday; hopefully I’ll be able to see it this weekend. I just really, really, love Disney guys. I mean, my blog is called Pixie Dust Kitchen.

King Arthur Flour is holding a sweepstakes to go to their test kitchen, and they have some awesome consolation/weekly prizes as well. You can enter here!

The past two weeks I’ve only posted twice; I’ve been taking summer classes and working weird hours and that’s cut back on my time for recipe development and times to take pictures while the lighting is still nice; but my class ends this week and I have off until Thursday so I’m hoping to get back to posting three times a week starting this week.

      Thank you! Your granddaughter has a wonderful name! I’m trying to stay on track- I’m a stress and procrastinator baker, but I’m trying to put school first!

    Wow congrats! I’ve started getting more and more accepted on tastespotting and I got my first ever photo accepted on foodgawker the other day! Also.. Cath Kidson! I’m from the UK and I have so many things from there. But it’s expensive even here. I love their mugs and aprons. Maybe i’ll do a give away! 🙂

      Thanks, and congrats to you too! I was looking at the UK site and it did look expensive for there too. I’ll just have to save my money!
