Devil’s Food Cupcakes

devilcupcake01

The current count is two. Two what, you ask? That would be two marriage proposals since I publicly debuted these utterly delightful devil’s food cupcakes this weekend. Two marriage proposals in two days from two separate individuals. That’s gotta be some sort of record, right? I mean, never mind the fact that the proposals came […]

Chocolate chunk cookies to make you feel good

A few weeks ago now, I was approached by the folks at Cadbury who wanted to gauge my interest in working with them for the Fair@Square Fair Trade Festival. Allow me to hop on a soap box for a minute and say that I’m a big fan of being ethically aware of the choices that […]

M stands for Mocha…cupcakes!

Dear Reader, It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? In fact, I’ve neglected you for almost 2 months, and I’m hoping you’ll forgive me. I know that there is a gazillion interesting food blogs out there on the big ol’ internet, but I know that a lot of you have been thinking of me (some of you […]

Peanut Butter Cupcakes – two ways!

To see the new, improved version of this recipe, click this link! When I bake, I have to be on constant lookout and ever vigilant from roaming fingers. You see, my family suffer from Finger Dippyitis – otherwise known as the compulsion to stick their unwashed fingers into my cake and cupcake batters. This sometimes […]

Decadent Delights – Dark Choc & Roasted Macadamia Brownies

“I smell….chocolate!” My mother drifted into the kitchen, following the scent of the brownies I had just baked. I had just set the steaming tray onto the bench to cool, when I saw her nimble little fingers reaching for the pan. Quick as a flash, I grabbed a spatula from the drying rack and gave […]
