It’s been a great year!

It’s been a fun first year. Thank you for sharing it with me.

And, just yesterday I got the coolest present to round out the year.

THE Pioneer Woman blogged about making my Halloween Cake Pops. I couldn’t believe it. I look at her site all the time in amazement and I couldn’t believe she was talking about me. (She’s like some kind of super-human. If you aren’t familiar with her, you should check her out.) I’ve been secretly wishing her family would adopt me so I could live on the ranch and cook and take pictures of cows with her all day. So here’s a little photo just for her. I think she would like it.

  1. Shaun Cassidy….. oh I could have eaten him up

    as a side note, you go girl!! as hard as it is to live up to your standard, it sure is fun trying!!!

  2. I loved Michael J Fox. Especially in the Back to the Future movies, but also on Family Ties. I think that’s the reason I always wanted a Delorian.

    P.S. I’m planning on making your pumpkin cookie recipe today to take over to a dinner with some friends this evening. Can’t wait to taste them.

  3. Happy Blogavirsary! Thank you for sharing your creations. My crush was Jordon from NKOTB!

    raeganlady at yahoo dot com.

  4. Jonathan Taylor Thomas..was my crush! I would watch Home Improvement just to see him! :) OH YEAH.

    You are super talented! Thanks for sharing them!


  5. I’ve always thought Matt Damon is a cutie.

    Happy Anniversary Bakerella! I’ve really enjoyed your blog, keep the yummy ideas comin’ =)

  6. Let’s see… if they were in Tiger Beat, I probably had a crush on them. If I have to pick just one though… Kirk Cameron? He was dreamy back in the day.

  7. I had a crush on Bo too, years ago, only because he looked like my next door neighbor~ who of course, had a crush on. I also had a big crush on Jordan Knight and Joey McIntyre of New Kids on the Block. I was really sad when I accidentally left my TeenBeat magazine at our hotel in Hawaii. They were on the cover! I think I was nine. I’m so glad they reunited!

    I love your blog, this post is hilarious=)

  8. Happy Halloween and 1st Blogiversary! You’ve had an amazing first year; congrats!

    I have always had a huge crush on Johnny Depp, but fat chance of me ever meeting him.

  9. Happy blogaversary! Fun cupcakes

    I have a crush on martin gore from depeche mode, love his voice.

  10. "David Duchovny, why won't you love meeeeee" Yeah, I totally had a crush on him back when X-Files was on/still good <3 I also crushed on David Bowie when he was Jareth in Labrynth… but who didn't??

  11. I thought it was so cool the PW featured you! I love her, too

    Bo was my favorite of the Dukes – and maybe I’m dating myself, but Sean Cassidy!

  12. CoNgRaTuLaTiOnS !!!

    1000 :*

  13. I would have to say my biggest crush when I was young, Sean Cassidy. I look back and wonder why, but being a kid and all, does there have to be a reason?
    Love your T-shirt.
    Have been a Bakerella fan since I saw you on Martha.
    Great Work!
    Love your site.

  14. Congratulations, Bakerella! What a year it was for you!Great job!

    Even if he’s been weird lately, I still feel mushy when I watch Tom Cruise’s movies. Haha!

  15. iii always had a crush on Justin Timberlake from *N Sync. Me and my bff would fight over who would marry him. It was pathetic but all in good fun.

    Happy Anniv!!!

    flamegoddess65 (at) aol (dot) com

  16. Harrison Ford. But then when we both got older I started crushing on Brad Pitt. The first time I saw my husband I thought, wow, he looks like Brad Pitt!

    Love your website and cupcake pops!

  17. my biggest crush was Tom Cruise before he went a little bonkers! Now I am loving I mean crushing on Jack Bauer. I mean Keifer Sutherland…yummy!

    Happy Blogiversary!

    I can’t wait to see what the next year brings! I try your stuff a lot and I usually can do a pretty good job…Thanks so much!

  18. George Clooney. ‘Nuff said?

  19. Daniel Day Lewis! Sexy beast!

  20. When I was a teenager I was in love with Johnathan Taylor Thomas (JTT!!!)

  21. Hey, John Schneider was my boyfriend when I was 9 too! The guy got around! I even had his record, and I played it over and over and over and over. He is just one gooooog-looking man!

  22. I just love that blog!!! Congratulations!!!
    My email adress is:

  23. I think my heart began to beat a little faster and a huge smile was plastered on my face when I saw Bo Duke smiling at me!! I know you think he was smiling because he was taking a picture with you but let’s be honest here. He is looking at me in that picture!!!

    Can you tell I was (maybe still..who am I kidding?lol) a little smitten with John Schneider when I was a little girl?

    Congratulations on your one year anniversary! I can’t believe I just found your website yesterday thanks to Pioneer Woman. I read all your archives and I am amazed at your talent. Thanks for sharing your talents with us!

  24. Happy Blogerversary. I’ve sure enjoyed reading your blog the last few months sine I’ve discovered it. It always makes gets me in the baking mood. Congrats on meeting Bo Duke, that’s awesome. That show if before my time, but growing up in south Louisiana, I know all about it and have seen some reruns :) For me it was Macgyver, I was about 5, but knew I’d marry him someday :) Even though that didn’t work out he’s still pretty hot these days,

  25. I love your site! And my celeb crush, probably McDreamy from Greys. But when I was a teen it was JTT, Andrew Keegan, those guys! haha

  26. HAPPY HAPPY BLOGAVERSARY!!! My not so secret “crush/love” is and has been for MANY MANY years, Kenny Chesney. :)

  27. Happy 1 year blogiversary!

    I love Josh Groban! He could sing the phone book to me and still melt my heart!

  28. Happy Anniversary! I just found your site a few weeks ago and love all the goodies you make.

    My first real crush was on Wil Wheaton from Star Trek:The Next Generation. (What a geek!)

  29. I love your site! I admit, I’m coming over from PW and I’m glad I did! Happy BIG 1st!

  30. Mmmm, quite a few to choose from, but probably John Travolta – the first film we saw when my parents brought a VCR was Grease! Loved him ever since!

  31. Congratulations on 1 year of blogging! I do love your site — so keep up the good work.

    And the photo with Bo Duke — oo-la-la!

    As for my celebrity crush, hands down — Jonathan Knight of New Kids on the Block. I was his biggest fan from about 1988-1990, and I had the NKOTB memorabilia to prove it.


  32. I had a bad crush on Michael J Fox…I cannot tell you how many times I watched Back to the Future!

    Will you take me to the ranch with you? I heart PW and it’s because of her that I’m here!

    Happy Blogsiversary!

  33. I can’t believe you’ve only been doing this one year…your such a pro. Happy Bogerversary! name him and i probably had a crush on him…but, i’ll have to go with NKOTB…all of them..depending on my mood.

  34. I have always liked Sean Connery, that voice…

    Love your blog! I love to bake and my one daughter and I use to watch Gale Gant on the Food network, wish her show was still on.

    Happy One Year!


  35. Congrats on the one year! I love your site and you have inspired me to do so many of your recipes. Thank you! My crush from childhood either Jonathon Taylor Thomas or or Mark Paul Gosselaar. But now ever since ‘The Office’ started, I have had a HUGE crush on John Krasinski.

  36. Happy Blogiversary!

    I have to admit that I tend toward the unique and I could look at Johnny Depp all day. (Adrian Brody is my odd second. I don’t know – there’s just something about him…)

  37. I am thankful to the Pioneer Woman too for introducing me to you. I read every one of your blog entries yesterday while I was supposed to be working and I am so inspired and ready to get baking.

    As for my crush, I would have to say Mark Wahlberg (but only the clean cut version – no scruffiness for me).

  38. Happy Blogaversary fo sho!

    Fantastic way to celebrate, YEEE HAW is right. Altho, Boss Hog was my favorite. :p

    Here’s to many more delicious years to come.

  39. I had a crush on Leonardo Di Caprio ever since he was on Growing Pains.

  40. I’m showing my age here but since high school my big crush has been Sam Elliot. I first saw him in a movie titled “Life Guard”; it was his voice that got me. Years and years later I met him – we were both picking out roses at a famous Los Angeles area nursery. I was amazed at how short and thin he was – oh well. The voice is still great! BTW, as a cook/baker of over 40 years, I am inspired by your blog!

  41. ?i heart sean connery as james bond?

  42. Patrick Swayze and the way he moved those hips during Dirty Dancing always got me!!!

    You have a great site here and you have inspired me to get out of my pre-purchased cupcake rut and try to make my own!!


  43. Happy Blogiversary! Your blog is one of my favorites. I LOVE your Dukes birthday theme. Bo Duke too was my boyfriend growing up. I love that you got the cars signed and the picture with him. I’m totally jealous!!! :)

  44. I found your site through PW’s and I am in love with it! Thanks for sharing all this goodness!

    I totally have a crush on John Cusack. :swoon:

  45. I was a total Dukes of Hazzard fan too, but my crush probably involved the men on CHiPs. :)

  46. Happy Anniversary! Great cupcakes! I did have a major crush on Michael J. Fox in Family Ties!! Oh my gosh, I’m giggling just writing that! Thanks for the year of inpiration!


  47. CONGRATS! And I saw the pioneer woman shout out–that’s awesome! Christian Bale is my current flame all though I’ve had several throughout my lifetime…

  48. I totally crush on John Travolta…from the beginning until now, thin or husky..he’s a hottie!

  49. Sean Connery… sigh… I don’t care how old he is. He’s the only person I would leave my husband for should he come knocking on my front door…sigh…

  50. Even though I’m only 26, I have ALWAYS had a crush on John Travolta! That man can dance! PS, I made your pumpkin cake pops for my five year olds preschool, they all loved it! Can’t wait to see what you have planned for Thanksgiving and Christmas!

  51. Congratulations on your blogiversary! I love your site and I’m so happy I found it.

    I have a serious crush on Tim McGraw and newest is Gerard Butler!

  52. Happy 1st yr Bakerella!!!!!!

    Thanks for all of the inspiration you’ve provided with your baking skills!

  59. Love the blog, found it yesterday and made our own cake balls last night for school today, thanks so much for this awesome blog.

    Loved Bo Duke too, but Shawn Cassidy was my boyfriend. I guess that seriously dates me, eh?!

  60. Happy Blogaversary! I loved Christian Bale when I first saw him on Little Women as a teenager. Now that I’m a little older, I think Bret Favre just oozes hotness… those stupid jeans commercials!

  61. Happy Happy Anniversary! You ROCK! Bo and Luke Duke…that brings back memories…I knew ALL the words to the theme song…”Just two good ole boys…” :-)

  62. Love your site – it is so darn CUTE! Now I just have to get up the nerve to try making some of your cute little pops :)
    Had and have a major crush on Johnny Depp!! Also (dating myself now) used to dig Rick Springfield!

  63. It’s gotta be John Travolta! Although John Schneider was definitely a heart throb.

  64. My crushes change more than the wind. Currently, it’s Daniel Craig.


  65. Congrtulations on one year!

    Tom Selleck baby!

  66. Happy Blogiversary! I also had a huge crush on Bo Duke! I also loved Erik Estrada!

  67. My childhood crush was on George Michael. Perhaps I could make cupcakes that feature his perfectly round bum, which he wiggles so prominently in the video for “Faith.”

  68. Congratulations! What a great blog you have and what an awesome accomplishment to have completed a year of it. :)

    My celebrity crush (as embarrassing as it may be now) was Tom Cruise in his bomber jacket.

  69. LOVE the picture of you and John! I have a huge crush on Matthew Fox. When I was 5, I insisted I was going to marry Davey Jones from the Monkees. Yes, I’m that old!

  70. Has to be Fabian!!! Can you tell how old I am?! Love the T-Shirt, so Cute!

  71. Being a child of the 80’s, my crush was Zack from “Saved by the Bell”!

    Congrats on 1 year!

  72. What a great picture!!!

    Celebrity cruches…well, currently…Bill Murray! Gotta love a funny man.

    Growing up it was John Travolta…I wrote to him when I was about 10 and gave him my address “in case he was ever in town.” :) Then I graduated to C. Thomas Howell as a teen. Anyone remember him?

    Keeping my fingers crossed for the shirt! :) Fun post!

  73. I have to say that I have had a crush on Ryan Gosling since I saw him Remember the Titans :) God love him in Notebook…. swoon.

  74. Hi!! I “found” your site yesterday – thanks to P Dub… and I am SO glad I did – I don’t think I’m ever going to leave… oh and my waist-line already hates you – but she will just have to get over that!!!

    I have crushes on way too many celebrities to name them all so I will go with the top of my list – Brad Pitt… he is just so perfect.

    I can’t wait to go back and catch up on what I missed on your blog this past year – congrats on the #1.

  75. Hi! First time seeing your blog and I can see why Pioneer woman loves it…AMAZING! That’s so cool that you got to see Bo and get his autograph! My husband (and especially his family) are HUGE Dukes fans…they’d be jealous. : )

  76. Congratulations on your first year! I always loved Joey from NKOTB, and of course Zack Morris from Saved by the Bell . . . just two of the “McDreamies” of those days!!

  77. Thanks for the awesome blog!

    I have a crush on Scott Foley, especially in the Unit, I love a guy in uniform :o)

  78. Very funny. I remember watching that show and of course I had to be different. When everyone was in love with BO I went for Luke. But I have to say still to this day I still have a crush on Donny Osmond. I know…who doesn’t. Anyway…I hope I win. I just love your site.

  79. I LOVE YOUR SITE!! I have re-created sooo many of your pops for just about every occasion, maybe one day they will look as good as yours.
    Anyways, I have had a crush on Joey McIntyre from New Kids on the Block since they first started! I even used to sign my name Hannah McIntyre, when I was about 10. I actually get to see them in concert next week, maybe I’ll take a CD and a fine point sharpie too!
    Thanks for a most wonderful year of fantasticness! Keep it comin’.

  80. Ooh, giveaways!!! I had (have?) a thing for Val Kilmer… He’s much older now, but I still watch his younger-day moview all the time!!!

    Thanks for the giveaway! And I LOVE your cupcake pops! They’re always so cute!

  81. I’ve always been a fan of remington steele, (although I’m told he has another name too – why bother???)

    Happy First Blog-irthday!!

    Love your blog!

  82. It’s weird to say, but I had the biggest crush on Michael J. Fox. I absolutely love the Back to the Future movies (still do!) Loved the post, congrats!

  83. Happy Halloween and blog anniversary! Great story and pics.

    I actually crushed pretty hard on Wil Wheaton from Stand By Me and Star Trek the next generation. Um, yeah…

  84. I guess I am a real “oldie”!! My crush is and always has been Elvis!! There will never be another like him!! Congrats on your first year and best wishes for many, many more. I LUV your blog and recipes!!

  85. Johnny Depp will forever hold my heart! ~But when I was a tween, I was starstruck with Jonathon Taylor Thomas. He played the middle child on Home Improvement. Such a cutie!

  86. …my secret crush is Val Kilmer in the movie “The Saint”. And who can forget the volleyball scene in “Top Gun”? ……swoon!

    Love your blog, Bakerella! And would be very proud to wear one of your shirts!

  87. Oh, that’s easy. My first crush was the original Starbuck, Dirk Benedict. I quickly transferred my love to his second series when the A-Team aired. Nice of him to stay so accesible, yes?

  88. Bo was my love too! So glad to ‘share’ him with you!!!

    Congrats on your Blogiversary!!

    Totally love the General Lee Cupcakes!!

    I would LOVE to be able to purchase a Bakerella shirt, but I live in Canada, hopefully someday you’ll start shipping to here :)

    I love you’re blog, amazing baking!

    well, just for the fun of it my celebrity crush is Jack Nicolson, so handsome in his day and such an amazing actor!

  95. I loved the group Alabama. I even got to go to a press conference with them and get a picture. Fun stuff.

  96. Harrison Ford, for sure! :)

  97. Awww huge John Lennon fan!! But since he’s not around, Vernon Kay ticks a lot of boxes heehee! x


  98. Happy Bloggaversary! You make my days at work so happy with your posts. In fact I'm counting down the hours until I can leave tonight and make the pumpkin chocolate ship cookies!

    My strange and possibly kind of sketchy celeb crush is Jamie Hewlett of Tank Girl fame. He's scrubby and not at all conventionally attractive, but for some reason I still <3 him big bunches.


  99. I had and still have a big crush on Robert Downey Jr. Im so happy he has straightened his life out!
    Happy Day! Love your blog!

  100. Happy Anniversary! It’s so funny you had Bo Duke, I had a big crush on him as a kid. Later my crushes were Harrison Ford in Star Wars and Indiana Jones (1-3, not 4!)and I think I would leave my husband for Johnny Depp (as Captain Jack Sparrow, not Sweeney Todd or Edward Scissorhands).

  101. I’ve always had a HUGE crush on John Cusack. It all started with my favorite movie, Say Anything.

  102. That’s so funny, just two days ago my 11 year old was watching “Sidney White” and asked who the dad was, saying he looked familiar. My answer “Oh, that’s John Schneider, I was going to marry him…” LOL She didn’t find it all that amusing (she’s 11 and he’s old) but my husband got a kick out of it.

  103. Happy Anniversary!!! I met Bo in 1982 when I was 12 years old, and I was in love! He really was super nice. The cupcakes are fantastic, but the cow pops are the BEST! I hope you have a cookbook in the works – it would be a best seller, no doubt!

  104. When I was in middle school, I had the biggest crush on Prince William. It was kinda embarrassing. I had a poster of him on my ceiling! Now, though, the only man I have a crush on is my husband (awwwwwww).

    I’d love one of those cute shirts! Here’s to you and a great first year, Bakerella! :)

    (That comment was me… something happened with my computer and it posted as anonymous and now I can’t go back and delete it! Oops!)

  105. i’d have to go with Jonathon Taylor Thomas, too. The good ole Home Improvement days!

    yay, one year!

  106. I am tickled pink that I found your blog! I love to see what you’ve done with cake and frosting!
    Happy 1st Anniversary!

    Oh — I didn’t have any TV teen crushes


  107. When I was in middle school, I had the biggest crush on Prince William. It was kinda embarrassing. I had a poster of him on my ceiling! Now, though, the only man I have a crush on is my husband (awwwwwww).

    I’d love one of those cute shirts! Here’s to you and a great first year, Bakerella! :)

  108. Happy anniversary! Celebrity crush most certainly is Paul Rudd. I know, I know, but I’m a sucker for the semi-dorky boy next door!

  109. I have had a crush on Joey McIntyre from NKOTB my whole life. I finally got to see him (From the nosebleed section) at a concert a few weeks ago, swoon! I made you cake pops for my sweets buffet at my wedding a couple of weeks ago, and they were the biggest hit! I am so a bakerella at heart! Happy Birth-iversary! nibbles47[at]gmail[dot]com!

  110. Jason Bateman – I swear, he gets cuter every year. And, just to prove my love, I confess now to seeing “Mr Magorium’s Wonder Emporium” just for his screen time. Sigh.

  111. Edward Norton is my crush. There’s just something interesting about him…

    BTW, I made your cupcake bites and they were awesome! Here are mine.


  112. Totally Mr. Darcy-Colin Firth!

  113. Love your blog. Congrats for the fanastic year!

  114. Well, I always had a secret (maybe not so secret) crush on Kirk Kameron. He is still a cutie! I LOVE your blog…keep it up!

  115. Jonathan Taylor Thomas from Home Improvement and Neil Patrick Harris from Doogie. We went out. All the time. To my backyard. We played with rocks. A lot.

  116. I love your blog and you are an inspiration to me! I have been trying to bake more often and better and your recipes and blog have really helped! So THANX for that.

    I’ve had a crush on Billy Idol since i was about 14. I’ve gone so far as to tell my first born son that Billy Idol is his biological father! I saw Billy in concert a couple of years ago with my boyfriend and we got into a huge fight because I was drooling so much over Billy!! Can you believe my BF wouldn’t be more understanding?? LOL

  117. Celebrity crushes…. John Taylor from Duran Duran (still hot) and Keanu Reeves. And I don’t think that anyone could watch Daniel Craig in the Bond movies and not have a little crush.

  118. Pioneer Woman rocks. I discovered you through her yesterday, and I have to say you rock pretty hard too!

    You’re quite the crafty lady. I very much enjoyed your thank you war updates for a newbie :D

    Happy Anniversary!

    P.S. Your boyfriend is HOT

    The Jolly Dog House

  120. Happy 1 yr! I’m so excited to have found your blog via pioneer woman!! I can’t wait to check out all of your creative baking!

    Anyhoo— I guess I can remember way back when crushing Kirk Cameron on Growing Pains!

  121. For me it’s a toss up between my two loves, Brian Austin Green (from school days) and Nicholas Cage (a staple since adulthood).

    If I had to choose though, I’d have to go with my first love, Brian Austin Green. Man, I loved me some David Silver…so glad he finally married Donna!


  122. Oh, I would be SO excited to win a Bakerella t-shirt!!!! My celeb boyfriend is Marky Mark! And yes, you have to use the “old” name! LOL!

  123. Congratulations!!! I know my children have enjoyed eating Cake Pops though mine do not look as pretty as yours. Also, that is so funny Bo Duke was mine hunny too!!!!

  124. I absolutely love Ben Affleck. And believe it or not Patrick Stewart, Cpt. Picard from Star Trek the new generation. Something about his voice and presence.

    Congrats on your first year and because of you I make Oreo truffles for every family party and everyone loves them!

  125. Happy 1 year anniversary!!!! My crush started with Mark Hamill and moved to kirk Cameron and then Rob Lowe, LOL!

  126. I was a NKOTB girl all the way! Jon was my favorite.

    I want a t-shirt – size Medium. Please and thank you!

    Happy blog birthday!

  134. Congratulations!!! That is so cool that you got to meet up with your boyfriend from years past ;)

    I loved that show!

    I made some pumpkin cake pops just yesterday for a halloween party my kids went to. They were a huge hit, everyone loved them. The only problem I had was the stupid cake writers from wilton just didn’t work. At all.

    I was a little bummed out about that, but all in all, I will definitely be making them again!

    I really really want that shirt, so pick me!!

  135. Wow, there’s so many but one of the main ones that stands out from my youth is Jon Voight. I had a magazine cover of him that I used to drool over .. lol.

    By the way, I saw the reference yesterday on Pioneer Woman. LOVE both of your sites … keep up the good work!


  136. Congrats on 1 wonderful and exciting year! I was in love with Brad Pitt when the movie Legends of the Falls came out…I think I was 14 then. Still have that same ol’ crush on him…but who doesn’t.
    valerieann118 at msn dot com

  137. Happy Anniversary to your blog!! Thank you for always being so inspiring! :) I have a crush on Tom Cavanagh. He played Ed on my favorite show of all-time – “Ed.” He’s such a hottie. ;) Thanks for the chance!

  138. Happy Blogiversary!!

    I used to have a huge crush on Jonathan Brandis when I was in middle school- I thought I was going to marry him for sure. But, sadly, he took his life in 2003. What an incredible loss.

  139. Happy blogiversary!! :)

    I always had a crush on Heath Ledger. I love his acting. :( It’s a shame he’s no longer with us.

  140. Happy Blogiversary! I know you hear this often, but… This is such a great idea! I LOVED Bo & Duke. Bo more of course :-) I can't believe you have a signed car! I can't decide if I like the autographed car or the cupcakes more… hmmmm… I think the cupcakes. But Bo is still super hot, by the looks of it :-)

  141. Wow – what a great giveaway! Congrats on the blogaversary and the shout-out by PW (she’s awesome!). As for my celeb crush – I loved John Schneider too but I also had a huge crush on Alan Autry who played “Bubba” on “In the Heat of the Night” – even though both men were way too old for me. Thanks for the chance to enter and remember my childhood crushes.

  142. Kirk Cameron was my first true love. Most girls my age will tell you they loved Mike Seaver on Growing Pains!

    Happy 1st Anniversary Bakerella!

  143. Um no, he was MY Boyfriend when I was 9! Seriously, and the best thing is he is still a HOTTIE! (and my husband kinda atually looks like him). LOVE JOHN SCHNEIDER!!! (and your work, HAnniv!)

  166. Sam Elliott.I love that guy’s hard, rugged exterior. I think he should have played the lead in ‘Bridges of Madison County.’ Although I love Clint Eastwood as an actor.

  167. It’s gotta be Ponch (Eric Estrada) from Chips, LOVED HIM! Just saw him recently on a Celebrity Fit show and he still looks the same (plus a few added pounds!)

    Loved the Duke boys too!

    I had a total crush on Russel Crowe in Gladiator. Yum… He looked so good and was a family man. He had the whole package there. I cried my eyes out when he died at the end. :(

  169. Well… I guess my celebrity encounter is YOU! I’ve known you since you wandered into our office as a high school intern. There’s been a lot of water under the bridge since then (for both of us). You’ve become the most amazing person ever and I’m so proud of you for so many things. Congratulations on your 1-year anniversary and your “second career!” Keep baking!!!

  170. Wow! when I saw that picture I said wow she has a HOT husband! That is an awesome picture of the two of you. I have to say my crush is and has always been John Travolta. From Vinny Barbarino days to the Wild hogs days. He makes me melt like butter on hot toast! LOL Happy 1st blogiversary Bakerella. You inspire me.

  171. Well I think you’re just AWESOME! Congrats on one year(I celebrated mine this week also!) I’m so glad you have your wonderful blog because it’s definitely one of my favorites.
