Afternoon Crumbs...

Hola guapas!! I'm such a wayward blogger, I don't know why you even tolerate me. I know I'm supposed to have a Meatless Monday post for you today, buuuuut unfortunately, I'm suffering a terrible case of blogger's block, and my sad and pathetic half written MM post is still being "worked on", and I would rather not share it with the world just yet. I may hate my job, but I love this blog, and you guys deserve the best I can be. Which brings me to my next point.
For sometime, I've been contemplating ways to bring in a little extra cash in my pockets. I finally settled on the idea of opening a shop on Etsy and selling some sweet edibles, but have been wary about it because, well, I'm a self proclaimed NON baker. Or at least I thought I was, until I came across a recipes for brownies that just screamed "sell me on Etsy...and while you're at it, sell blondies too!" So a few weeks ago, I decided that I was definitely going to do it, and would preview the brownies and blondies on this here blog, while sharing said brownies with friends and coworkers, to gauge their sell ability.

So where are these brownies, you ask? Well, I made them both, but I fudged the recipe on the brownies, and wasn't blown away by the blondies, and have been avoiding remaking them for fear that this is a massively bad idea. BUT I don't "do" fear for very long, because I just don't have the patience for it, and it's non productive. I've also realized that I leave for Spain (again) in two months, having any extra cash on hand would be exceptionally helpful. Sooo with that said, I'm forcing myself, by way of this blog post, to try TRY again with each of these recipes this week and post them to the blog.

And here's where things get interesting. I've decided to do a GIVEAWAY for each recipe. Since I'm thinking about selling these goodies on Etsy, packing and shipping them are an equally important part of the process, and what better test audience for such an endeavor than you guys?! It's a win-win, and totally makes up for some of my broken blog resolutions.

So here goes...wish me luck...


  1. Good luck! I'd love to cook or bake for cash... maybe someday.

  2. I'm hoping to set up shop by next week, and I want to make the packaging part of the experience.

  3. I don't think I can sell booze via etsy, but maybe premade drink mix that you just add alcohol too. hmm, you may have just given me another idea...

  4. I wish I could sell that peach cobbler on Etsy, but I don't think that would ship well at all. And besides, I'm all out of my beloved caramel vodka. For now I'll start with brownies and blondies, and see where that goes

  5. well my dear, you know I'll gladly cook for you for free. I'll probably bring the brownies and blondies to the baby shower :)

  6. and by someday you mean as soon as you turn in your thesis right? becuase there are several cakes on your blog that I would pay for!
