Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes

So funny story. I had planned to make these back in mid-August, just in time for back-to-school. I did my weekly grocery run at the beginning of the week and purchased all of the supplies and ingredients I would need for these tasty little treats, one of which was Nutter Butter Cookies. It’d been a…

Monster Cookie Cupcakes

This week’s baking adventure was quite an exciting one! I dreamt up the idea a few weeks ago and was able to construct a yummy and unique cupcake, inspired by chewy, hearty, chocolatey, crunchy, oatmeal peanut-buttery monster cookies!

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Cupcakes

Happy Father’s Day to all of the great fathers out there! And an especially happy day to my own Dad-Dad-Daddio (my Back to the Future nickname for him). My Dad is a super fun guy who, when he gets an idea, will do whatever it takes to make that happen. Pretty sure I get a…

Lovely Lime Cupcakes

As St. Patrick’s Day approached this year, I pondered what flavor of cupcake I could produce that could be colored green but also flavored with something naturally green. And, since broccoli cupcakes do not sound very appetizing to me, it proved to be a slight challenge. But after searching for some “Pinspiration”, I formulated an…

Valentine Donut Cupcakes

This past week, I had some fun experimenting with an exciting idea and a new mini donut maker! I eagerly awaited the arrival of my Amazon package containing this new piece of kitchen equipment. Then over the weekend, I got in the kitchen and began crafting this Valentine-themed creation. All of the components came together…

Pineapple Star Cupcakes

Happy New Year! …I suppose it is a little late in the game to be saying Happy New Year now 14 days into 2020. Oh well, better late than never I guess. I’ve made it a goal this year to keep up with my blog and to share delicious recipes with you on a regular…
