Cupcakes!

My boss, and good friend, recently had a birthday and what else do you do when one of your favorite people as a birthday? You make cupcakes of course! IMG_4373 I knew I wanted to make flavored cupcakes, but I didn't have a ton of ingredients in the house. Thanks to Pinterest, though, I found a recipe for lemon cupcakes with lemon buttercream frosting. So delicious and scrumptious! IMG_4376 They were definitely a big hit. IMG_4375 I decorated them with some left over pearl-looking sprinkles and edible yellow glitter flakes. It was my first time trying to frost a cupcake in a method other than just dumping frosting on top. I think it turned out pretty well! I used a ziploc bag and just snipped a hole in the corner. Maybe someday I'll pick up a party bag with some basic tips, but until then this works just fine!

Noms: My bread!

You know that one dish you're known for and are pretty much required to bring to any potluck-style gathering? Mine is bread. IMG_0030.JPG I started making bread when I was first learning how to cook back in Arkansas. My favorite recipe is one I found on pinterest, it's called peasant bread. It's super easy to make and takes very little time. It's delicious and rich and yummy, definitely a crowd pleaser. I made this the other day and used it to make yummy grilled cheese sandwiches and I paired it with a homemade salmon and oyster chowder. So goooooood. IMG_0034.JPG
