Images from my kitchen

Here are some images from my kitchen that make it fun and happy to cook in. I jar everything I buy in bulk to both preserve it and because I love the way it looks. Fish magnets I made. Love this glass piece from the 70's for my produce. (They have these kinds of things in every thrift store in Utah.) Bendy stomach man bought from a toy show. My tribute to Benny in cartoon form. Wub the Wubbs! I collect salt and pepper shakers related to all things food. These ones are sitting on an onion plate. Funny food-related stickers from Botan Rice candy. Porcelain hamburger soap dispenser. Love red in the kitchen, and this gumball machine matches my kitchen aid. Potholders my sister made me! Can't post without a picture of Benny.

Shameless Plug....

Hey! Long time, no see, eh? Sorry 'bout that... I am the administrator for the Study Design and Biostatistics Center at the University of Utah. This means I get to edit the website :) Muahahahah. I've added tidbits of "personality" to this otherwise, informational website, one of which is my shameless plug for my blog (and the whole cake-making-for-money thing). See website here Do you need help designing your funded study? Do you need statistical consulting for said study? Note: funding-agencies like to see that you've done your homework, and stats is a HUGE part of said homework. Ok, long story short, my shameless plug WORKED! I made this cake for a birthday from a coworker who saw the site. This was an AMAZING cake; it was a chocolate cake filled with vanilla icing, topped with a layer of velvety-smooth rich chocolate icing, and frosted with vanilla on the sides. Mmmmmm. Sooo goood. I was so proud of myself too; I'd written "Happy Birthday" on the cake in really good handwriting, except upon closer inspection, I'd written "Happy Birhday". I shit a brick, then picked it off with a toothpick. I haven't been the same since. Here is my sweet bug trying to get a piece of the action. Sorry bug, Cakes aren't for kitties!
