churro cupcake

I made these for a friend's Cinco de Mayo party and just had to sneak a bite.  First of all, your house will smell AMAZING as these cupcakes are in the oven doing their thing.  Topped with cinnamon cream cheese icing...definitely a keeper. I combined two different churro recipe ideas I found online to come up with this one.

Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle

Wandering a bit from the pie norm, JoDee and I decided to try this trifle for Thanksgiving this year.  Kids and adults both loved it.  I could not find a gingerbread cake mix, so I made a homemade gingerbread.  I suppose that any spice cake would taste good, as well.

Thanksgiving Punch

This punch was a big hit yesterday.  I loved that it was flavorful without being overly sweet.  Perfect!  For a dinner party of 18 we doubled the recipe and still had some leftover.

Curry Chicken Salad Wraps

This was a delightfully quick & tasty dinner.  I loved the flavor combo...especially with the mint & curry!  And my 2-year-old couldn't get enough of it.

Rolo Cupcakes

I stumbled upon this recipe from my baking addiction, doubled the recipe and shared with many friends.  I'm sadly not eating sugar, but am trusting my sources who declared the concoction a keeper.

Lemon Mascarpone Cream Cake

My birthday cake of choice this year...which just might be repeated next year.  And the next.  And next.  I discovered the recipe (and many others that look incredible) at Not So Humble Pie.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

These are absolutely ridiculous.  Really.  With four different recipes to mix up (of course you can skip some of the elements - like the cookie on top), these are extremely high maintenance for cupcakes, but ultimately worth the effort.  Mighty tasty & impressive.  I found the original recipe at Annie's Eats.

After they got dressed up in some more mini chocolate chips:

Grilled Balsamic Chicken with Tomato and Feta

For mother's day this year, we were looking for a quick and easy dinner that used ingredients we already had on hand.  This was the winner, but I really expected it to be nothing above mediocre.  I was very surprised and will definitely make it again.  Everyone loved the chicken.  The flavor of the marinade, combined with the tomato and feta, was something I truly enjoyed.

German Chocolate Cake Roll

Verging from Jim's traditional 3-layer stacked German chocolate birthday cake...this was a definite keeper.  I love how quickly a cake roll comes together.  And everyone loved how this one tasted.

Cherry Chocolate Kiss Cookies

These were a huge hit with all of my boys.  A new favorite.  It took great self-control (I'm in a no sugar zone) not to taste these because I have a real weakness for shortbready cookies.  These seemed like buttery, lightly sweet perfection.  Perfect accompaniment for a drop {or kiss!} of chocolate.
