Wow time got away again! Sorry I haven't put up the pictures yet the laptop crashed before I got a chance to get them on and we just got a new computer so hopefully they'll be up soon.  I'm 11 weeks and 4 days today and I have officially am under 200 days until the baby's due date. Princess has been acting a little better now she's starting to understand that I can't pick her up as much as I used to thankfully.  My morning sickness is pretty much gone unless I forget to eat. Which is quite a common occurrence  lately in fact I forget everything even if I have it written down and in my hand lol.  I've been so tired lately I want to do nothing but sleep but my insomnia has been kicking my butt so bad.  It took me two weeks to get the kitchen completely clean and shiny again because when I had my morning sickness I couldn't even walk into the kitchen with out wanting to throw up TMI I know I'm sorry.  Oh! A big plus I got some sweets back! Finally! Before the baby just hated anything sweet.

Recipe for today comes from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen and it is Homemade Cadbury Eggs

1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) salted butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Yellow food coloring
Chocolate candy melts or almond bark

In the bowl of a mixer, cream the butter, corn syrup and vanilla until smooth. Slowly add the powdered sugar and beat on medium low speed until well mixed.

Spoon about a third of the mixture into a separate bowl and color it with yellow food coloring. Refrigerate the white and yellow mixtures for at least an hour, for easier handling.

Roll the yellow mixture into balls and place on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes or so. Remove from freezer and cover with white candy and form into an egg shape. Freeze eggs for about 30 minutes.

Melt your candy melts or almond bark according to package directions. Place eggs in the chocolate and coat completely. Remove and place back on wax paper lined baking sheet. Place in the refrigerator until chocolate has set.
