Foodie Monday: Mini Ginger Vanilla Bean Layer Cakes with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

*smacks lips* I was going to write an ode to my new silicone baking pan which I bought to make quinoa cakes in for a vegan potluck that I went to recently. My cupcake pan never seemed like the proper shape for quinoa cakes. This new pan was perfect!

Foodie Monday: Carrot Apple Zucchini Mini Cupcakes with Chocolate Hazelnut Creme Frosting

Do you have zucchini in your garden? In your kitchen? Can you keep with the yield? I don’t have any zucchini yet, but when one of the women I hike with, Kristin, gave me a two foot long zucchini, I was able to make four different dishes with it. I’m pretty sure it lasted over a week in my fridge. I can’t imagine having to eat more than one zucchini a week!

Foodie Monday: No Cook Banana Pudding

Sometimes, I am just lazy. The other day, I had too many apples and a hankering for apple pie. Instead of making the dough from scratch, I used some pre-made mini pie shells in my freezer and made Mini Bourbon Apple Crisps. I didn’t even take the peels off of the apples. I was just that lazy.

Rave ‘n’ Crave Wednesday: Nostalgia Electrics Retro Series Cotton Candy Machine

I had the pleasure of being introduced to a new retro candy, soda, and sign shop downtown. I had never seen so much old-fashioned sugar in my life. The only thing I ended up getting was a container of cotton candy. Like most kids, I loved cotton candy! It used to be that you could only find cotton candy at amusement parks. I was skeptical about the small tub of vanilla snow flavored cotton candy, but if it was anything close to what I remembered, it was going to be divine.

Foodie Monday:  Bourbon Vanilla Bean Cupcakes with Salted Coconut Caramel Frosting

I am not a cupcake fan. When it comes to sweet foods, I will take a cookie over a cupcake any day. C is for cookie, not cupcake! It is extremely rare to find me eating carbs in the form of cake. If I go in for a second bite, it must be divine! My stepmother refers to dessert as “quality calories.” Don’t eat it unless it is worth it . . .
