Within the past half hour, I've googled "how to line a circle pan with parchment paper" and "which kitchenaid mixer attachment should I use for cake".
The cake is in the oven now. This post is keeping me from peeking and compromising the heat distribution of my oven. I'm on pins and needles.
Sometimes, I wish I was the mom who would plan a party at a park with grocery store cupcakes and a bag of balls and be done with it. I'm not that person. Sadly, I will never be that person.

Let me tell you about my favorite delicious side dish. It's as simple as roasted veggies. You pick the veggies you like. I love red onions, red peppers, cauliflower, asparagus, mushrooms (portobello or crimini) and zucchini.
Chop them up and toss them in a bowl. Mix in a little olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt and dried oregano. Pour them out on a baking sheet and throw them in a 450 degree oven for 40 minutes. The veggies caramelize and the are so delicious. I originally got this recipe out of a Weight Watchers cookbook. This is a ONE point recipe. Granted I usually eat the entire batch so it probably comes out to 4 or 5 points. But it's definitely a tasty way to get your veggies!
