Ahhhh memories

Did a little poking around my parents house today and found a few things that brought back memories...

Here's little Cara Lee circa 1987! I remember scrambling eggs for my mom on the weekends with my little mixer. I just realized it's pink, like my new pink kitchen aid mixer I won a few months ago!! I also had an off brand easy bake oven. It wasn't pink and white like the real one, it was red, yellow and blue. I wish I had a picture :-(

I also dug up my very first cook book! My mom got it for me in the 80's. I think it was one of those mail order ones, from Gold Medal Flour. I loved this cook book and I thought I was just so cool I had my very own book of recipes :-)

I'm so happy I found these... brought a little smile to my face and calmed me a bit due to this crazy stressful week!


  1. thanks gabby :) i'm on the prowl for more stuff next time i go back there.

  2. OMG, how cute! My mom recently found a childhood pic of me and my cousins having a sleepover at my house and... guess what we were doing... BAKING CUPCAKES! I think you've inspired me to post that on my own blog and share. Look out soon

  3. Nikki - please post them! It really brings back such great memories :) Can't wait to see!
