January is a busy birthday month for Ryan's family. His mom, dad, brother, and sister-in-law all have birthdays in January. We decided to have a a little party at our house to celebrate. I decided to be all ambitious and make them each their favorite dessert. After agreeing to do so I decided I was in way over my head when they started requesting things like Cherry Cheesecake and Angel food cake. I was expecting chocolate cake , spice cake or lemon bars. You know, something I could make from a box. Now I know for most people cheesecake and angel food cake is not a big deal, but I have an uncanny act to ruin EVERYTHING I try to cook. (Just ask Ryan). I decided to press forward and try something new. (But don't worry I had a back up plan- Albertson's sells both angel food cake, and cheesecake).
Much to my surprise, tho, everything turned out GREAT! We had a yummy Cherry Cheesecake thanks to the recipe Anne Marie gave me, yummy Chocolate Marshmallow Brownies thanks to the recipe Alicia gave me, and yummy Angel Food Cake thanks to the recipe the internet gave me. (I only made 3 desserts because Ryan's mom said she didn't have a favorite, so she just got a little of everyone's).
I was quite proud of myself that I didn't even have to use my back up plan. :)
It was fun to celebrate the January birthdays with most of Ryan's family. Unfortunately, his sister and her family weren't able to make it because of the weather. We missed you guys!
