And now for something completely different.
Well, not COMPLETELY 🙂 But it’s not sewing for a change. Tom decided he wanted to have a Windows 7 Launch Party and was selected! Soooo, I needed to bake something extra special. Out came my Vegan with a Vengeance cookbook and came up with Fauxstess Cupcakes.

I got out all my yummy vegan ingredients.

Tied on my cupcake apron. (Check out that belly, and I didn’t even eat a cupcake yet!)

Sifted my dry ingredients…

Mixed them with the wet 😉

Baked and Filled!

And don’t forget to add icing and arrange on lovely fiesta plates in the shape of the windows logo!

Voila, Windows 7 Cupcakes 🙂

Getting ready for winter… by baking blueberry muffins!

November 7 at 11pm | Posted in Baking | Leave a comment

I’m always cold when winter comes, and the heat just doesn’t cut it for me. The only thing that works is baking, or at least that’s what I tell everyone else. I’ll post all my favorite recipes so your house can be warm and smell good too!


Without further ado;

Brown Sugar Blueberry Muffins

Preheat oven to 375° F.
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour, plus 1 tablespoon for dusting blueberries
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons half & half
3/4 cup frozen blueberries

1. Cream the butter & sugar. Mix in on medium speed vanilla, milk, half & half, baking powder. Make sure you scrape the sides down. Slowly add flour on lowest speed.

2. Coat frozen blueberries in flour (put them in a bowl together and stir). Add the blueberries to the batter don’t over mix or you’ll crush the berries and it’ll get too “blue”.

3. I like to use baking cups, I don’t even own a muffin pan. Spoon out so that they are all even with the tops of 12 regular size muffin cups.

Bake at 375 for 35 mins, should be golden with blue swirls 🙂
