I want to start off by saying THANK YOU to all of you for all the amazing comments and emails last week celebrating my blog’s first birthday. It was so nice to hear all your positive comments, and I savored each and every one of them, so thanks for taking the time to jot down a few words. I spent much of last week in the kitchen cooking up some new and not so new recipes. It was rainy and cool so I was content just puttering around the kitchen. I tried a new cupcake recipe on Sunday to bring to our friend’s house. Zoe, the videographer, videotaped the whole process, so we will feature the video along with the recipe. We had such a great time cooking, photographing and videotaping it all. I love working on blog stuff with the kids. Eli came in to lend a hand sampling it all. He had to test each step, just to be sure it was blog worthy. Cute little guy! Here’s a sneak peak at the cupcakes. They are dark chocolate cupcakes with a creamy chocolate frosting. The frosting is light and airy so it compliments the richness of the cupcakes.
I baked up the chocolate chip pumpkin bundt cake again. After the cupcakes were gone, my kids looked at me with their dark brown eyes asking what was I making up next for dessert? I had some extra pumpkin puree sitting in the fridge, so why not bake another pumpkin bundt cake, right? It’s so good!
I also found a fantastic kid friendly (kid friendly meaning no raw eggs or anchovies) Caesar salad dressing that Eli is literally going bonkers over. He has requested the salad for dinner every night. I promise to post these above recipes soon.
Oh, and I wanted you to all know that I updated my popover recipe. It’s the same recipe as far as ingredients go, but I tried cooking them another way and they got huge! Check it out! I’m always looking to improve my favorite recipes.
I’m roasting up the peppers today so they will be ready to go when I make the soup tomorrow.
Thanks for hosting everyone Carrie!
Eli has his class Halloween party today so I’m getting up extra early to bake a batch of these mini pumpkin muffin poppers.
