Hey Hey! How’s everyone’s Saturday been so far?
Mine has pretty much been split between shopping and baking…two of my favorites!
The shopping was more of a “time to stock up” trip to Sam’s Club, but we ended up with some goodies. It’s amazing how much the money adds up when we shop here. But luckily, a lot of this stuff will last us a long time, so it’s totally worth the initial shock value.
I was actually kind of hoping that we’d come across some good samples while shopping, but I only came across one lone pinwheel appetizer. Regardless, it was good…and I’ve actually had them before.
I did a lot of grazing this afternoon in between baking, but I did end up stopping to have a delicious snack of cottage cheese, strawberries, and pineapple chunks.
Cottage cheese + pineapple is one of my favorite combos. Always so tasty.
Oh right, so I mentioned I did some baking today, right?
The other day as I was going through some of my baking equipment, I came across these egg shaped pans which I knew would be PERFECT for Easter.
Better yet, I came up with a recipe that would be just as perfect for tomorrow.
Jay and I have a brunch to attend tomorrow morning, followed by “dinner” at my parents’ house. If you remember, we’re actually having “breakfast for dinner” so I needed something that could work double duty.
Enter: Jelly-Filled Doughnut Cupcakes
Of course, I had to try a bite. You know, just to make sure they were okay to take tomorrow.
They’re definitely okay to take.
I made a mix of mini egg-shaped doughnut cupcakes plus regular cupcakes, and I put together a plate to take to each gathering.
Uhh ohh. Unfortunately, there were a few that just didn’t make the cut. I guess they’re just gonna have to stay with me. What a shame…
Don’t worry, I’ll have a full recipe up for you during the week!
Oh yes, and as if the doughnut cupcakes weren’t enough…
I also baked up a new batch of Chocolate PB Cup Cupcakes.
You may notice that the frosting looks a little different on these bad boys. Well, that’s because it is. I got a little creative today and came up with a Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Frosting.
Oh yes. I went there. It’s outrageous.
And don’t worry…that recipe will be comin’ your way this week, too.
Now after being stuck face-to-face with sweets all day long, I’m about ready to sit down with a big ‘ol salad that looks a lot like this one that I had last Tuesday.
It’s just me & Cody tonight, since Jay’s out for a “Guy’s Night.” I’m planning on popping in a girly movie, puttin’ on my cozies, and just chillin’ for the rest of the evening.
Sound like a plan?
Question for the Evening:
If you could only pick one treat from above, which would it be: doughnut cupakes or peanut butter cup cupcakes?
