Betty Crocker Corn Bread Mix

I love cooking...especially baking. Maybe I need to change my blog title to Crafting/Cooking with Jessica. I made Betty Crocker Corn Bread tonight for dinner. I have made corn bread muffins from scratch before and this mix tastes just like the scratch but less time to make and only .75 cents a package. Plus, the America's Test Kitchen rated it the highest among box mixes. I have an obession with the America's Test Kitchen also....I love there 30 minute meat loafs. Too cute plus tastes good.

When I took this corn bread out of the oven my dad and I both said looks so perfect need to take a picture of it. So I decided to share it with you all. Enjoy!!!

Where is all takes place...

I know I haven't blog in a couple weeks. I have been overwhelmed with my Etsy shop. I started with only two inventory items and I received my invoice say you need to pay your etsy fees. I went to pay and only had forty cents they would not let me pay 40 cents because you have to pay a minimum of a dollar and you can not pay a dollar because you only owe 40 cents. So....I need to get busy. I had three betty shoppers ready to go with a help of my assistant (my dad) the grommets went all the way through the bags living four little holes in my bags!!! :( so sad material and time wasted. Luckily I had a birdie sling and one of the three betty shoppers survived. I need to make a bag quick so I made a grocery shopper which turned out really good. Will be posted on my etsy shop this week so keep watching.

I don't have any pictures of my new bags or the wristlet that I will be showing soon.

I do have pictures of where all these creations take place....

Here is the fabric sad but that is mostly scraps of fabric not my whole yardage!!! I know too much fabric but you never have enough!!

Here is a picture of the machine behind it all my Huskystar C10 by Husquvarna Viking. I love my sewing machine but then again I was using a Singer from mid-70s. I have had no problems so far but had it for almost a year probably needs a tune-up!
