Scrabble For Bakers

filed under: Miscellaneous on March 4, 2010

First off, can I just say…


Cause she does.

More on that in a minute.

As most of you know, I am one of the luckiest people in the world, in that I get to go on TV and talk about blogging. And not me and my blog, but other peoples blogs.

My most recent segment on Twin Cities Live was my favorite yet!

I got to talk about some very fun blogs… and TWO of them are baking blogs.

The first is this sweet little site by Erica Lea called Cooking for Seven.

This girl is so talented. She bakes, she takes pictures, and has FIVE siblings! She is a busy girl.

And remember Miss Bridget?

I was inspired to talk about Bridget because she is my baking hero. Really.

I saw these cookies on her blog and knew it was the perfect way to talk about her amazing creativity and talent.


The names on the board are the talented and beautiful (I kid you not these ladies and gents are GORGEOUS) staff at Twin Cities Live.

Every single letter is a sugar cookie with royal icing on it. I used Bridget's recipes for both and people LOVED them. There is a reason she is the best!


For some reason I was more nervous for this show then I have ever been… I think it was cause my DH is out of town and he is always my first call after anything exciting happens to me. Knowing I couldn't talk to him was a bummer.

Oh well! 🙂

If you would like to see me say 'yeah' and 'amazing' and 'yeah' a bunch of times and then try to fit some blogs in there you can click here!

Then twitter Bridget @bakeat350tweets and tell her shes famous in Minnesota.

Then twitter me @manda2177 and tell me to stop being so bossy.

  • Renee says:

    Once again, you did an excellent job!

  • Karen@SurvivingMotherhood says:!
    You are amazing.
    And, you know? Because of your little “warning” above, I was going to pay attention to the “amazing” and “yeah” comments. But I was so taken by watching you that I didn’t even notice.
    Will you move to Michigan and do something like this for Michigan bloggers? *grin*

    AMANDA ROCKS! (I think that’s worth more Scrabble points!)
    You *seriously* made my entire year, no, decade! I did not deserve all of those kind words! I’m so, so grateful that blogging has brought me real, true friends…even though I’ve never actually seen their sweet faces in real life. You, though, you I get to see on TV and that’s *almost* as good.
    Of course, my hubby had to work late tonight….I couldn’t wait to show him! Here’s a link to your segment and all the blogs you mentioned.
    And, I’m going to give a ditto to what Kate said:
    Can I have your autograph?

    Both you and Bridget are very talented and gracious ladies and I am learning tons from both of you. Just watched your segment…it was great as were you. You did a super job with the Scrabble cookies. I imagine it took some organizing to get them all laid out. Keep up the excellent work.

    I’ve enjoyed reading the reactions to Bob’s comment’s about Obama’s connection to deliberative politics and his references to the “common good.” A recent New Yorker piece takes a similar position and contrasts Obama’s “deliberative” style with Clinton’s penchant for partisanship: See George Packer’s “The Choice” in THE NEW YORKER (Jan 28, 08).
    In these discussions about Obama, Democrats, and the common good, it is important to remember that
    Michael Tomasky got the Democrats back on to the language of the “common good” with his article, “Party in Search of a Notion,” from THE AMERICAN PROSPECT (April 2006).
    This talk of the common good, from Tomasky’s perspective may be completely in line with partisan politics and need not be identified with deliberation. See Tomasky’s review of Krugman’s new book, “The Partisan,” in the NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS (54:18 Nov 22, 07).

    Just working through some notes on ethics and social networks and I thought I’d share the following paragraph that I’ve been working on – because it seems counter-intuitive at first.
    There is a growing consensus that comments posted in social networks are not ‘in the public domain’ and that researchers should seek permission to use them. Researchers should also remember that because the internet is so readily searchable, they should avoid using literal quotes from social network discussions (in most cases) as this will potentially reveal who the respondent is.
    In many codes of ethics and in a growing number of laws, the intention/expectation of the person making a post is important in determining what can be done with that post. In terms of privacy there are two issues. The first is that if a researcher has to join a network to see the post, then the person making the post is doing so in the expectation that they are talking to genuine members of the community, not to professional researchers or journalists. The second that is when somebody makes, say, 200 posts in their status bar over the course of a year, they did not have the expectation that all their quotes would be brought back together as a single corpus for investigation.

    Mmmm, looks absolutely delicious. I used to look forward to Caribbean black cake at weddings and other special events. Then I became a vegan, and that was the end of that. I’d love to sample this! Any chance you’d be willing to share the recipe? 🙂
