Strawberry Cream Cupcakes

I made 18 cupcakes this weekend and they are all gone! I gave them away so people could taste test. The strawberries were not as sweet as I thought. The topping is a whipped cream topping with strawberries folded in. So yummy.

Rave Reviews

So, I made the chocolate tart for a client who had a family get together over the weekend. I received an email this morning.

"Oh my goodness!! You can’t believe how much everyone raved about your dessert. One of Jack’s brothers thought it came from a bakery. I said no, my friend made it. They were so impressed! It was absolutely incredible!! You could go into business! It really just melted in your mouth and that raspberry sauce was the perfect flavor accent! Wonderful! This recipe is definitely a keeper! I can’t thank you enough!! Just excellent!!"

Lemon Ricotta Bread

So, I made Lemon Ricotta Muffins awhile ago and wondered what it would be like if I made it into a bread. Take a look and enjoy!!

Gramma's Cookies

Finally made Gramma's Special K cookies. When I eat them, it is like getting a big hug from that loving woman. Now, I was out of Special K Cereal & used Touch of Honey Cornflakes. Still freaking delish! And, I try to forget that it uses 4 sticks of butter!!

Up & Running

This was a yummy chocolate cake. I wish I had taken a picture of the final product. I cut it into 3 layers and filled each layer with a peanut butter buttercream frosting. Next time, I will also had a covering of chocolate ganache or chocolate buttercream.

Lemon Ricotta Muffins - thinking of making this into a loaf of bread. They are super delicious. They were received quite well.

Doggie Dessert

I found a recipe for Doggie Dessert - it is a frozen peanut butter yogurt and Justice LOVED it!

Cheesecake Disaster

Before I could eat it, my ricotta cheesecake ended up in the trash. I was trying to unclasp the springform pan and it popped up and over and all over the counter. The kitchen and I are just not friends lately.
