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. I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting to try out some of your recipes (my oven has been on the verge of dying and I think it is finally fixed). I have a box of cake mix and a container of icing just waiting. Thanks for sharing your creations with us!!

  2. My crushes changed all the time as I grew up…I was sooo boy crazy! I think my first was Shawn Cassidy “da do run run run” Then, I also was in love with Bo Duke…and Eric Estrada, ahhhh.. he still looks good. I think he started my tall dark and handsome fantasies. In high school I was smitten by Rocky and Ryne Sandberg (2nd base for Cubs)and I was in love with a guy up the street who liked Billy Idol, so then I fell in love with Billy! I still have the pins I wore on my jacket!. Now, my husband has my heart but I get all flustered when I see Dwayne Johnson (The Rock)! :) What fun to remember all that! Sorry my comment was so long.:)

  3. Too funny that it would be this post to admit a longtime crush on Bo Duke.

  4. Happy Blog-iversary! My crush was Leo DiCaprio back in the day! so cute!! Now I have a massive crush on Jim from The Office! LOL
    Love the cupcakes!!

  5. I loved Bo, and Luke, too. I loved Kirk Cameron.

  6. I liked Kyle Chandler from Home Front…I think I was about 12 or so…wow he is still hot today…for today’s crushes – Ryan Gosling, John Krasinski, James McAvoy…all very attractive but not in that model, pretty kind of way and they all appear pretty intelligent.

  7. Yeey…Happy Blog Anniversary! :) And much much more….!!

    My teenage crush: Jared Leto…:) (Show: My so-called life) hihihi…


  8. I loved Dukes of Hazzard, I don’t know how old I was though when I watched it. I like the picture.
    I read your blog weekly, I like cupcakes and what you do with them.

  9. Definately Vin Diesel

  10. hmm…I have a crush on Johnny Depp…even though he’s old enough to be my father! I also had a crush on Brandon Lee…it’s so sad that he died though…he was an awesome actor.

  11. No laughing, I was apparently born in the wrong era. I totally had a major crush on DAVY JONES as a teen. Yeah there I said it. Maybe I should make this anonymous? :) :)

  12. I love your site! You are on my Google reader!
    My crush is and always has been Donny Osmond. He truly is nice and so very talented. I have seen him in concert and would pay every time to see him. We were actually on the same plane together going to New York. Of course he was in 1st class and my hubby and I were in coach. My husband teased me the whole time saying he should go ask him to sing to me!

  13. Fred Savage. Major crush.

    The best part?? When I met the guy who would later become my husband, he said that when he was little people were always saying how he looked like the “Wonder Years” hottie! Meant to be?? I think so.

    Happy anniversary Bakerella, you truly make the world (and internet) a sweeter place!! xoxo

  14. Love your yummies!

    Super teen crush on Dylan Mckay, 90210!

  15. I have a re-crush on Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran after seeing them in concert this past summer. Oh, heck, I have a re-crush on all of them! Happy 365th day!

  16. Love your blog and all that you make, the cake pops are on my list to do too! I also read Pioneer woman love her site as well, wish I could live there too! Fav Celeb that I would love to meet is Tom Cruise. Oh well, thanks for sharing all that you do your stuff is wonderful!

  17. Jordan Knight from New Kids on the Block was my big crush! I had all of their “tapes” and could tell his voice from the rest of the guys. How funny! Congrats on 1 year!

  18. You and I are of the same ilk to be sure. I had front row seats to see my lifelong secret boyfriend/celebrity crush James Taylor so I baked him some cupcakes (red velvet with cream cheese frosting) and took them with me. He could tell I was packing baked goods. I whipped out my sharpie and a photo of him I’d printed up (prepared like you) and he signed it on the spot in exchange for those cupcakes.

    Life was never so sweet as that moment. For James and I both.

  19. Oh my goodness! I love the cows. My mom and I are teaching some holiday candy/goodies to a bunch of ladies tomorrow and I am going to refer them to your site.

    Anyway my crush celebrity crush is Dwayne Johnson. Yummmmy.

  20. I had and still do have a crush on Johnny Depp – what a hottie!!!!

  21. Major crush on Gordon Ramsey here!! :) Love your blog!


  22. When I was in junior high, I had a huge crush on Kirk Cameron. I used to lie awake at night thinking of him and I’d have dreams he lived across the street from me.

    Congrats on your blogiversary!

  23. Definitely Joshua Jackson, from Dawson’s Creek. Happy 1 year!


  24. I’d have to say I think Ryan Reynolds is a hottie! There is something about his fun personality too that I think it would be hard not to always have a smile on my face around him.

    Congrats on the 1 year!!

    Congrats on the one year, and I hope there are many more!

  29. My current celeb crush is Dr. McDreamy. It changes all the time!!

  30. Poncherelli, from Chips. I know, it’s disgusting, but I was young.

  31. I know it’s weird, but I had a MAJOR crush on John Boy Walton.

  32. Congratulations and I can’t believe you’ve only been blogging for one year. You are such a pro and your creations are a masterpiece. My crush was Harrison Ford during my school days and I still think he’s cute.

  33. I came across your blog from Pioneer Woman’s. It is great! I am going to make some of the red velvet cake balls this weekend, along with some other ones.

    I never really had a crush on any one person. But I always enjoy a guy in cowboy boots and wranglers!


  34. Jake Ryan in Sixteen Candles. I even named my son after him!!! I know I’m a dork. Oh well.

  35. Congrats on your huge first year! I can’t wait to see what happens next!

    I secretly thought that I was going to marry Jordan Knight. NKOTB all the way, baby!


  36. Happy Anniversary!!! I love your blog. The first crush I can remember having was for Chad Everett – he played a doctor on Medical Center when I was around 5 years old. I thought he was wonderful! I rarely meet anybody who even knows who he is. lol.

  37. Happy Blogiversary! You’ve accomplished a lot in 1 year…Congrats!

  41. Reading about everyone’s crushes is a hoot…my fav was Donny Osmond. My dad was staying in the same hotel once and fought a huge bunch of screaming teenage girls to get his autograph for me. Congrats on your #1!!

  42. Michael J. Fox was also my first crush. I was 5 years old. It was followed shortly by my Kirk Cameron infatuation. :)

    that’s not to say that I wasn’t a fan of Bo and Luke myself. ;)

  43. I’ve always had a crush on Chris Noth, but from when he was on Law and Order back in the day. And of course, Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing. Happy Blogversary!

    I love your blog!

  47. Happy Blogerversary!!

    When I was younger I had such a huge crush on Joey McIntyre of New Kids on the Block!! :)


  48. happy blogiversary love you blog!!! and love your celebration cupcakes you are amazing!!!

    Happy Blogversarri!

  50. No, John Schneider was my boyfriend! ;)

  51. Happy Blog-a-versary! Cute idea with the Cupcakes!! *love* them!

    I adore Ryan Reynolds & Matthew Lillard!! They're both hilarious and so, so cute!

  52. Ok, I had no idea you were holding a giveaway, and I was going to comment about my own (ridiculous) celebrity crushes anyway, but I guess a giveaway entry is just icing on the cake! For the past 6 or 7 years, my celebrity crush has been Jared Padalecki, since the moment I first saw him on Gilmore Girls as Dean. 4 years ago when he got his own show with Jensen Ackles, well let’s just say that I became a borderline obsessive fan. I call them my husbands, and I never miss the show. I’ve broken dates (with real guys) so that I don’t miss this show. So trust me, your mini car thing is not that bad.

    P.S. My e-mail is

  53. I so want to be a Bakerella!! I have always had and still to this day have a humongous crush on Rick Springfield! He is still my man and I openly admit this love ;)

    Thank you for sharing your site with us, it is wonderful and inspiring!!!
    jennifertuttle (at) bellsouth (dot) net

  54. when i was younger, i had a crush on “zach morris” from saved by the bell. hehe

    congratulations on ur blog-iversary!
    amazing all the things u’ve accomplished in just a year…so inspirational.

  55. Happy anniversary/halloween! My childhood crush was Burt Ward as Robin in the original Batman series. Later, I had a crush on Christian Bale in Newsies!

  56. My Uncle was actually recruited by a Casting Director to play the part of Bo Duke…way back in the day! That’s our family claim to fame.

    My celebrity crush is, and will always be, George Clooney. The hottest man on earth! He has a pet pig and I’ve always had a pet cow. We are meant to be!

  57. As a grown up no crushes but when I was a little girl… oh my word! My heart sung for Grizzly Adams or Adam from Bonanza.

    Hey maybe that is why I am still single… I’ve never dated an Adam. ;)

  58. I’ve always been a sucker for David Boreanaz (from Angel and now Bones). He’s the perfect vampire: dark, brooding, sexy and can beat the bejeezus out of demons. Oh, and he was never crazy pale or whiny like the vampires nowadays. *sigh*

  59. This is so great!! How cool is it that you A)got to meet John Schnieder B)had him sign your car and C)it was perfect for your post?! I always love checking out what you’ve come up with!

    As for TV crushes, I used to think Knight Rider was pretty cute! Ha! Who knew he’d end up running around on a beach all day!

  60. i have the biggest crush on josh turner :) completely random!

  61. I have always had a crush on Brad Pitt… but really only him in The Ocean’s movies… with the shark tattoo… I don’t know why.

  62. I love your blog. I’m planning on trying the cake pops next weekend. Wish me luck!

    I can remember 3 MAJOR crushes in my time:
    John Taylor of Duran Duran
    Keanu Reeves in “Speed”
    and most recently, Joaquin Phoenix in “Walk the Line”.

    All dreamy…

  63. very fun cuppies! all fondant? very cool. hmm, crush.. I honestly can’t remember. getting old! so sad.. thanks for sharing the piggy ones, too. too cute!

  64. I’ve always been Hopelessly Devoted to John Travolta. It all started with Grease…oh those Summer Nights!

  65. I love your cupcake bites (I made them with pumpkin bread mix and cream cheese and again with a white cake and lemon marmalade… so tasty!).

    I didn’t have any celebrity crushes really growing up, but you could sign me up for celebrity crushes now (Michael Phelps and Viggo Mortensen). Yum.

  66. David Hassellhoff as Michael Knight in Knight still my beating heart…and secretly Sean Connery. Yes, he’s my favorite Bond but I actually fell in love the first time I saw Darby O’Gillis and the Little People. He’s like 20 in that movie and he SINGS! A crush was born.

  67. Sceret Celebrity Crush….hmmmm, that’s a tough one. I’d have to say some one studly, charming, funny and very manly…Richard Gere comes to mind. Although my real life crush is my sweet, handsome, studly, manly, charming and hardworking hubby! (kinda sappy, but true!)

    Love your blog and Pioneer woman rocks too!

  68. So cute! Love your blogiversary idea!

    I had the biggest cruch on Jonathan Brandis…he was on the show Seaquest, in the movie Ladybugs and some other stuff. Oh, how I loved him…then he killed himself. Boo.

  69. Hmmm… Matthew McConaughey…

    Congrats on gettin on PW’s site!! Shes awesome!

  73. I have such a thing for Rocco DiSpirito *swoons*

  74. Your blog is great!
    I have an old crush, Remington Steele (Pierce Brosnan).

    Congrats on a very successful year of blogging!

  75. I would have to say Will Smith. At least back in my young days I don’t really crush on celebs anymore.

    I found your site from Pioneer Woman and I am now hooked!

  76. I have to say Brad Pitt. I can’t help it! He just looks so good.

    I love your blog. I just found it and I am already a big fan.

  77. Owen Wilson – I even named my son Owen!

  78. Love your site! Last year I made your cake balls and turned friends into addicts. I too was thrilled to see you featured on pioneer woman’s website!

  79. My first crush was Freddie Prinze -from Chico and the Man. I was only 10, but there was something about him. Probably the moustache!
    Then I moved on to an older man, James Garner!

    I have read you (never commented before?) – but feel overwhelmed with your amazing talent(s)! But I love your blog and your amazing creations!

    Happy blog-a-versary!


  80. Congrats on your first year!

    My boyfriend err… I mean, celebrity I had a crush on was Kirk Cameron. Had posters, wrote him letters and sent him a picture. Ah… Sounds sort of stalkerish now but hey I was 10 years old!

  81. My very first celebrity crush was on Tom Cruise when I saw him in Top Gun. I love that so many people put a New Kid on the Block. Yep, I was obsessed with Jon. Still hot!

  82. Johnny Depp…when I was 12, now @ 34…and forever…

  83. I’ve been dying to make some of your cupcake pops but have been to scared, but when PW blogged about it yesterday I thought, “wow, that’s easier than I thought!” and I’m making some RIGHT NOW. I’ve read your blog fora bout 10 months now and I love it. Congratulations on your anniversary!

    I’ve had a crush on Anderson Cooper since 7th grade (1992) when he was on Channel One.

  84. From when I was a little girl, I have had a crush on Cary Elwes. I think it’s because I have been watching The Princess Bride since I was born probably…and Robin Hood: Men in Tights. I think he’s almost as delicious as cake pops.

  85. Cool cupcakes!

    My crush is Jack Black. He will be my second husband.

  86. Okay this really ages me but I like Elvis.

    Love your blog!

  87. I found your blog through Pioneer Women. HAPPY ONE YEAR!!!!! I think Ben Affleck is a hottie. Looking foward to your next year.

  88. Keanu Reeves. That’s all I have to say about that!

  89. Oh, happy blogiversary!! I love you cupcake pops… all of them! I’ve been dying to make them but my mom would kill me if I murder a perfectly fine cake just to indulge my curiosity… I wish she would go visit someone, anywhere, anyday…

    Btw, I’ve always had a HUGE crush on Robbie Williams… My BF claims that I’m dating him only because he’s british and that way I can get closer to Robbie… such lies!

  90. CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR BLOGAVERSARY!! I just found your blog and I LOVE IT!! Well we have one thing in common, Bo, uhm I mean John Schneider, I was in his fan club!!! He sent me a 8×10 signed pic of him! (not as great as your picture though cuz ur in it w/him!) I loved the show!! And he is the only blonde guy I ever had a crush on!
    Thanks for the great site!!

  91. Ralph Macchio, Davy Jones, Shawn Cassidy …I think I was rather fickle as a child. Glad I grew out of that!

  92. okay mine was rick springfield..i did love bo though too and too many others to name. your photos are amazing. congrats on the blog!

  95. I had a crush (and still do) on John Cougar Mellencamp. I would NEVER turn him down…ever.

  96. I have to admit I did love Bo Duke. Yummy!

    I also loved Tom Sellek on Magnum PI, Lee Majors as Colt on Fall Guy. How I wanted to be Heather Mills.


  97. Robert Downey Jr as Ironman. And his non superhero incarnation too. Ymmmy.

  98. oh bakerella you are super awesome! now, i’ve had a lot of celebrity crushes, but when i was a little girl i’ve always day dreamed about marrying Richard Dean Anderson, yup McGyver himself!

  101. happy blogversary, bakerella! your blog is soooo amazing! keep it up!

  102. Wow, I was just going to write congrats and who knew, but my little gift was very appropriate (seriously, I had no idea when I sent it, I had JUST finished them!) — but I guess I have to have a crush too?

    Ok, my crush was Tom Hanks in BIG…;)

  103. Joyeux bloganniversaire !!!
    Merci pour ces bonnes recettes !!

  106. Congratulations! It has been a great year indeed! My crush? A singer that I can’t even remember… Sad but true!

  107. I saw on PW site that she mentioned you, and I thought “hey, I know who she is”. Very fun that you both know and admire eachother’s work!

    My childhood crush was always Ricky Schroder. Now his wife is on Design Star and I hate to admit I think we’d be BFF’s if given the chance.

    Would love a t-shirt to promote you!


  108. My big crush was/is/forevermore is James Arness who played Matt Dillon on Gunsmoke.

    Miss Kitty be damned!

  109. No plus sized shirts? :(( I personally think you should consider adding a 1X, 2X & 3X's to your sizes…I want to express my love for baking too however being a 18/20–I'm being denied. *sniff-sniff*

  110. Hello Mrs. or is it Ms? Happy Blogavirsary btw! I get sooo excuted when a new blog hit’s my mail, it’s as if Christmas came early. :) hehe!

Inquiring minds want to know more about this master pastry chef, that we’ve all grown to be like…:) Happy Halloween sweets!

  114. I love baking…I love your site! And I can’t lie…am still in love with Tom Selleck (the Magnum PI days). Something about that mustache just gets me going.

  115. I am so jealous of your picture with John Schneider. You got to meet Bo Duke!

    We make the non-stick version of your cakeballs at our house, and they are a big hit. My 3 & 6 year olds are responsible for putting the sprinkles on after I dip the top half, and they are so proud of their work. It's a great family activity despite the fact that the kitchen ends up covered in sprinkles. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful idea!

  116. I had a crush on Ponch from C.H.I.P.s

    I loved him!

  117. I have been having this secret affair with Matthew McChonaughey for years – ok, so it’s all in my head, but a girl can dream right?!
    Congrats on a great year!

  122. I loved and wanted to be loved by Zak Morris (aka Mark-Paul Gosselaar)! Swoon!

  123. Hi! I just wanted to say that I always look forward to reading your blog. I’m teaching a cupcake class at my school this year and of course your cupcake pops were just too perfect to leave out of the sylabus! I’m also encouraging my students to look though your blog to gain some ideas! Thank you so much for sharing your passion with us! Lets see wich celebrity?? … I always thought that Patrick Swayze was pretty cute. hehehe. I loved Dirty Dancing!

  124. John Schneider….birthday 04/07…same day as my brother, and I used to tell him that Bo was WAY cooler than him anyday.
    I too had the hots for Bo Duke…thanks for sharing…I’m envious…I hate to say, but I am. :)
    Happy 1st Year Anniversary!

  125. I had a huge crush on Jason Behr back in the roswell TV series days (Wait I still do!) which is pretty random as he is not that well known! Oh and David Bowie in Labyrinth…no idea why now though: urgh those tights ick!!

  126. hmm… I used to love Orlando Bloom.
    I love the cow pops… I need to make some for halloween night! Oh wait… that’s today!

  127. Just discovered your site via The Pioneer Woman. You’ll be one I visit daily- great job, and Happy Anniversary!

    I love, gulp, Johnny Depp. Since 21 Jump Street. Now my 9-year old daughter loves him too!

    Pick me, Monty!

  128. I love the pioneer woman. She can do anything. I’ve never been one to crush on TV stars . . . athletes are another thing. I KNEW I was going to marry Steve Young when I was little. Too bad he didnt!

  129. Wow, a million years ago I had a HUGE crush on Shaun Cassidy. My room was wallpapered with pics of him. Nowadays I got for the more rugged type. Gerard Butler can make me swoon. Oh and those boys from the show Supernatural are pretty hot too although I feel like a dirty old lady because they are so young. :P

    Happy Blogiversary!! I found you through Pioneer Woman and I am so glad I did. I loved looking through the past year and cannot wait until I can try out some of the things I have found. Keep up the good work! Looking forward to more.!

  130. I have had so many… lol. There are too many cute men in the world to not enjoy looking at them all. My most recent celebrity crush is Cole Hamels, Phillies pitcher! Hotness.
    I still love me some Justin Timberlake, though. Oh! and Lenny Kravitz. I told you, there are too many!

  131. YAy! Congrats on 1 year!!!

    My celebrity crush is a celebrity but he isn’t very well known. He’s a chef. An AMAZING chef. Thomas Keller. He owns 3 fantastic restaurants that I envy. I actually got to meet him at my birthday dinner last week! It was amazing!!! :]

    You are amazing too!! :] I love your cake pops and everything else! Keep up the good work!!! ;]

  132. I’ve loved Orlando Bloom since he was in Lord of the Rings!

  133. Johnny Depp. Loved him in 21 Jump Street…still love him. I hope my husband knows…

  134. congrats on an entire year!

    I love John Stamos, handsome devil.

  135. Happy 1 year! “Bo”, ahh..he’s so handsome! I have a crush on Johnny Depp.

    Oh and I was so excited for you when I saw Pioneer Woman talk about your pops too!

    Which by the way I made for my daughters class and they loved them!

  136. Tom Selleck!

  137. Love your blog and giveaway – hope you continue for many more years. I would have to say Paul Newman (I know I am showing my age) is my favorite.

  138. Wow, I just loved Keanu Reeves after I saw Speed, then a Walk in the Clouds was even more romantic! Too bad he only does weird movies now. I think if I met him I would drool too much to talk. :)

  139. hi Bakerella – I just recently found your blog and am greatly enjoying it.

    I too was a huge Dukes of Hazzard fan when I was a kid. My best friend and I would watch it at her house on Friday night. We’d eat a big bag of BBQ chips and drink pop… and never noticed when the General Lee drove the same roads over and over.

    My celebrity crush is Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. A friend worked in the costume shop on the Xmen movies and I had to tell her Thank You for making him resemble the comic book character. :)

  140. well I am a Bakerella wannabe so I hope that counts :)

    Celebrity crush?
    definitely Ryan Gosling… I have liked him since his Disney/Nickelodeon days on Flash Forward and Are you Afraid of the Dark?

  141. Christian Bale for me.

    Thanks for the cake pops…made some for my halloween party and they were a hit!

  142. My crush was Kirk Cameron…Yummy!

    Congrats on your 1st year!!

  143. I will publicly announce right here and now that when I was younger I had a HUGE crush on Gordon MacRae from the original 1955 Oklahoma. I was 8 when I first watched it and I wanted him to be my Curly. I cried when my mom told me he was WAY older than me and had passed away. Crushed at 8!

  144. I’m not going to lie, I had a thing for JTT (Jonathan Taylor Thomas for those not knowing) back in his prime. That hair and those dimples? Yowza.

  145. Happy Anniversary!!!! So excited that PW featured you. And I love the cow pops!

    My first crush was Jonathan Taylor Thomas. I don’t really have any celeb crushes now…my husband would be pretty jealous.

  146. let’s see, my hollywood crush has been health ledger since highschool, and he still is even tho he’s gone. and then i love kiera knightley, not a crush, but a girl crush?! :) like, i-want-to-be-her crush?

    congrats on one year, i can’t wait for your 10th and 20th and blah blah blah

  147. Happy Blogaversary, Bakerella! I was SO in love with Donny Osmond! Oh my, OUR favorite color was purple, and WE even each had a purple stuffed animal pig! He still looks hot, even after all these years!

  148. I had a huge crush on Josh Hartnett. Oh he was so dreamy until he grew a unibrow!

  149. Congratulations on your first year!! You have had a fabulous year and I am still jealous that I can’t get my cake pops to turn out as great as yours, I still keep trying though. I think it’s the Canadian cake mix ;).

    Can I admit that I too had a huge crush on John Schneider. I remember it well and even started watching Smallville because he was on it. I don’t watch it anymore :).

    Congrats again on a fab year, can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeve for the year to come.

  150. at first glance I thought, man her husband looks like that guy from Dukes of Hazard! Anyway happy anniversary! Oh and once I met HGTV’s and Trading Spaces Vern Yip. My only claim to fame.

  151. Happy One Year Blogiversary!

    My crush when I was younger was Michael J. Fox when he was on Family Ties.

    I have a strange crush on Penn Jillette (of Penn & Teller). Don't even ask why, because I couldn't tell you.

  152. Happy Blogerversary! I’ve always had a celeb crush on Tom Selleck, such a cowboy in Quigley Down Under. Yum! :)

  153. Congratulations! Cute post. I’d have to say my celeb crush is Ashton Kutcher, which is funny because I used to think he wasn’t even that cute! Have a great Halloween!

  154. I still have a crush on Kermit the frog…does he count as a celebrity???

  155. Congratulations on your anniversary! I’m addicted to making your cake pops! Anyway, my boyfriend in highschool was Gavin Rossdale from Bush, he didn’t know it though.

    Keep up the awesome and tasty work!

  158. When I was about 7, I had a crush on Ricky Ricardo (aka desi arnaz) from the I Love Lucy show. It was weird, I know. But a man who can sing and dance and yell at people in spanish, that’s a real man.

    Love your site!

    I must have been really lonely. :)

  167. Happy Anniversary! Those cupcakes are way too cute.

  168. Oh! I saw these cupcakes at tastespotting! Happy blogoversary!!

    When I was little and lived in Ferndale, Ca there was a “General Lee” car stuck in a ditch for the longest time, I used to imagine it flying in the air and getting stuck, lol.

    My crushes from the 4th grade (’84) were Ralph Macchio -Karate Kid, a)nd Poncherello from CHIPS. LOL

  169. You have had a great year!! Go girl! That is a great picture too, my little sister was in LOVE with Bo.
    I always loved Matt Dillon. Loved “The Oustiders”, “Tex”, especially Tex….I still think he is just fine =)

  170. I loved Jonathan Brandis when I was young. He was in movies and on the tv show, Seaquest DSV (dorky I know!). I was very sad to hear he committed suicide a few years ago.

  171. Right now, I love me some Matt Lauer. If I were to go on the Today Show, I would ask for him to interview me.

  172. I liked Ricky Schroeder

  173. I totally had a crush on Phil Anselmo from Pantera. Mmmmmmmm. He’s still a hottie!

  174. Congrats, your site is fun!

  175. man this is hard… I like brad pitt still but he is taken…
    Matt McConouhey… also taken… huh guess I will just stick with my hubby for now.

  176. I love donny osmond growing up & still do. My daughter saw him in her college town & called me on her cell phone. Even after offering a huge bribe she wouldn't walk up & get his autograph for me!!! – what a shame- she's out of the will ;)

  177. Hi Bakerella! Freshman year of high school, one of my friends and I rented every Christian Slater movie, (except Gleaming the Cube, still have to see that one!) So I guess he’s the “secret” crush.

  178. Jonny Depp. The first time I saw him on 21 jump street I had a crush, my first ever! (I was 6 at the time)he just gets better with age!
    I love the site! Happy 1 year!

  179. I loved Scott Baio!! He was the
    greatest. I also had a poster that I kissed everynight. I know he loved me. Congrats! I love your creativity!!!

  180. Found you from The Pioneer Woman, and added you to my Google reader. I love John Cusak. And Johnny Depp, although I think he might be a little weird for me when I get to know him.

  181. I had a crush on Michael J. Fox (Back to the Future was my FAVORITE movie!!)

  182. I can’t believe you have a pic w/Bo. I am VERY jealous. I remember having picture of Kirk Cameron on my bedroom walls — he still looks exactly the same today!

  183. My biggest crush growing up was on Leo DiCapprio. I watched Titanic over and over just to see him.

  184. I also loved Jordan from NKOTB and just got to see them in concert a couple weeks ago in Vegas! He’s still hot but I think Joey is even hotter now!

  185. Happy Halloween and Happy Blog Anniversary!

    I was IN LOVE with Jonathon Taylor Thomas as a kid. Hardcore. Knew more about him than I probably should. My teenage crush was Heath Ledger, RIP. My current crush? Totally my husband!

  186. Congratulations!!! You are great!!!

    I love Christian Bale and Harrison Ford

  187. Happy Blogversary!

  188. I used to like AJ Simon from Simon & Simon… I was 3.

  189. I have had a crush on the same celebrity since I was a teenager.

    Christian Slater. I’ve seen every movie he has been in and I am hooked on his new show my own worst enemy.

    He is hawt!

  190. Hiii–I just found you through Pioneer Woman and I am bookmarking this site! I love to bake and really got into in a few years ago in college to deal with stress…nothing like warm baked goods at 2am when you feel as though you’re about to fail (at life).

    My celebrity crushes are (as always) the Princes of England. They are just delicious! And have some nice houses. And titles.


  191. My childhood crush was Jordan from New Kids on the Block. I also crushed on The Rock and Johnny Yong Bosch who was a Power Ranger.

  192. I happened upon your site yesterday because of the link from PW! I am so happy I did. Happy One Year…..and many more :O)

    I have always had a crush on Johnny Depp – oh be still my heart. If I ever had a chance to meet him, I am not sure I could even speak. And just for the record, my hubs knows about my feelings for JD…..he has one on Christina Ricci so it’s okay :p

  193. I had a huge crush on Leonardo DiCaprio in middle school during the whole Titanic craze- had a poster in my room and everything!



  195. Ah, my celebrity crushes are endless. But right now, I’m crushing on Chace Crawford. Gahh me makes me swoon :-P

  196. Congrats on such a great site.
    I love checking it out during my breaks at work.

    Keep up the good work!!!!

  197. You are sooo precious! Congratulations on your 1st year. I would have to say my crush would be Pierce Brosnan – love him in “Thomas Crown Affair”. Just want you to know your cake balls and pops have brought much joy to my family – can’t thank you enough for sharing.

  198. I grew up watching Save by the Bell, Home iNmprovement, Full House and Family Maters…all the now NICK at Nite stuff. So, I would have to say that my celebrity crush would be Jonathon Taylor Thomas. He is only a coupl eof years older than me and so I could always relate to him, plus he was always cute from kid to teenager to grown man!!!

  199. Um, Kirk Cameron. I still have a signed picture of him that “he” sent me after I sent him a letter professing my love for him. I did love some Bo Duke, too, though!

    Happy Blogerversary!
