A southern treat

Blackberry cornmeal cupcakes. I didnt think I would be making these ones out of the martha book, but i had a request for them and they turned out wonderful, i loved them and so did all of the southerners at the party that I took them to. They went quickly

Peanut butter cupcakes with dark chocolate frosting

I love anything peanut butter and martha has out done herself on this one, they were wonderful!

Marble Cupcakes

These were a big hit at brian and megans going away party.. you two will be missed around here. They were lots of fun to make.
They were choco/ vanillia marble cake with dark chocolate frosting.

The first pic is before they were baked, the second pic is after baking and the third is the side view after baking, the fourth is the frosted finish!!

Triple Citrus Cupcakes

These were divine for summer, they contain lime, lemon and orange zest and were glazed with a lime powdered sugar glaze. They were delightful for my ladies book club and for Annies 35th birthday!

Beer Pretzels by Megan

Megan came over to help get ready for my birthday party and she brought over pretzel dough for us to bake. The dough was made with Guinness and made fabulous pretzels that were eaten quickly

vegan cupcakes

My brother -in-law and his girlfriend are traveling the US and stopped by to see us for a few days. She is a vegan and luckily martha had just the recipe... vegan chocolate cupcakes dusted with powdered sugar... they were a hit, even the non-vegans like them

Birthday cupcakes

These fabulous cupcakes i made for my 25th birthday along with the help of my friend Megan. They are yellow buttermilk cupcakes with vanilla buttercream, topped with some colored sprinkles to make them very festive. Everyone loved them

Banana Pecan cupcakes with Carmel buttercream

Another martha recipe and I have to say that it was wonderful. So moist and fluffy, the butter cream was hard to make for this one, i had to do it twice to get it right because you have to make carmel by hand... which is not easy for novices like me... but the result of my persistance was fantastic

Green Tomatoe pie

Well since i now live in the south i must embrace their way of life. I made a green tomatoe pie and it was actually a big hit. I know it sounds weird, but its kind of a mellow apple pie type taste. I got this recipe from the queen of the south Paula Deen

4th of July flag cake and pound cake

Every year i make a flag cake made out of pound cake, coolwhip and berries. This year i used a martha recipe for the pound cake and it was delicious. The cake was gone by the 5th of July. This was a bigger hit than the fireworks

Pan Dulce

I really was missing home this week and decided to make some mexican sweet bread. I found a recipe at marriedtoamexican.com and it turned out great. Nice warm homey thoughts of mexicans!!

Homemade Hostess cupcakes

Everyone loves those chocolate cupcakes with cream filling, and martha has a recipe for it in her cupcake book and i tried it. Well it was a big success and the marshmallow cream filling is to die for.

Carrot cake cupcakes

I have been buying 5 pound bags of carrots from costco because they are cheep and easy diet snacks, but i cant eat all 5 pounds before they go bad. So i decided to make carrot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. They were absolutly wonderful. Oh yes and that is my best friend in the background .. my kitchen aid stand mixer
