If You Dare!

What can I say about these.  Fabulous!  If you love rich gooey brownies, these are for you.  All you need is Duncan Hines chewy fudge brownie mix.  Prepare and cook as directed.  Once cooled, I used Skippy reduced fat creamy peanut butter.  I melted it down in the microwave so it was easier to smooth across the top of the brownie.  Then I topped it off with some simple chocolate ganache.  Mini chocolate chips melted down in the microwave.  Then slowly mixing in fat free evaporated milk.  Small amounts at a time until I acquired my desired consistency. Again, fabulous...

Lemon Curd Cookie Cupcake

Lemon Curd

Simple Vanilla Frosting Cupcakes

Hello there.  It has been a while.  This summer has been incredibly busy and not a lot of time or events to bake for.  These are some of the most recent I made from June.  

The lemon curd cookie cupcake, I will call the grown up cupcakes.  These cookies came from Trader Joes.  They are a really nice, super thin lemon cookie.  I simply baked a yellow cake mixing in lemon curd and topped it with whip cream and a cookie.  Cookie and whip cream should go on just before serving. 

The other cupcake is a classic yellow with vanilla frosting.  Kids preferred!   

My stand by cakes are, Duncan Hines.  Frosting is the whipped vanilla from Betty Crocker.

Last minute Easter ideas

Fun Easter theme kid safe jars

Fill with kids safe foods

Our family has big kids and little kids.  So I filled these bunny eggs with Circus Animal Cookies.  The Easter bags have fish crackers in them.  I ordered these clear plastic jars from Target, 4 for $9.99.  I filled them with marshmallows and white bunnies and lambs.  So fun!

Sweet Family Celebrations

Everyone is so busy we have to squeeze in a quick day together to celebrate my sisters birthday.  It was a bit late, but worth the wait.  We spent the afternoon enjoying some sunshine, which we had not seen for a while.  Our kids got to play together.  Fun!  Of course, we had dinner and cupcakes.  Hurray!  

I threw in a quick little 6 month cupcake treat for the families latest addition.  Mr. Benji, my sisters adorable little boy.  Can't wait to have his first birthday party in September.
