Kris....what about Vampire Cupcakes

Vanilla Cupcakes with Cherry Filling and Marshmallow frosting, then you put 2 holes in the frosting and drip some of the cherry on it so it looks like blood

You're so creative.
That sounds cool.
You know kids would love that.

It would be cool in black, too. Scary black cupcakes w/ the red filling and white frosting.

The farm up the road makes the most amazing PB cupcakes.
Chocolate cupcakes w/ a squirt of PB frosting - kind of like the middle of a Funny Bone! - in the center and then frosted w/ chocolate fudgy frosting.
mmm....

poor thing. That really stinks all around.
We probably wouldn't have found out. I don't get any notifications of changes in majors/minors and the donor would have no way of knowing either. So she really could have kept quiet about the whole thing (and I kind of wish she had) but she did the right thing and is not being rewarded for it.

YUM!

My favorite cupcake from Crumbs is a chocolate cupcake with pb frosting in the middle, and then the top is half chocolate frosting and half pb frosting and there are mini pb chips all around the edge. So good!

I've been craving cornbread for so long. I was going to make some last week when I had some chili out of the freezer, but I was out of eggs. I bought some Thomas' toaster corn cakes over the weekend just to hold me over until the baking bug bites me again.

Anyway, things were kind of weird when he left and I suspect our friends with benefits situation might be over. Oops!
Let's hope it's hazy for him too. :/

I wonder if you could make some kind of frankenstein face on green cupcake with a scar somewhere and some silver bolts on the sides? Maybe with those silver ball thingies?

A spider with black liccorice strings for legs?

Though, like you said, why wait so long to figure it out? Could or would you offer to pay 1/2 of the difference?

I would think that if she protested with the electric company, they would come after you. Yipes.

I am not getting nearly enough work done today. Half of my mind is on Josh and half is already in Orlando. This is so bad because I have a huge amount of work to do between now and Friday!

Did I tell you guys that Nicole asked me to make cupcakes for her wedding? It's not until next fall, so I have plenty of time to figure it all out, but I'm nervous! I've never baked for something that important before!

She and her fiance are pretty much paying for everything themselves, so they're trying to keep it as economical as possible. And they wanted to do cupcakes instead of a cake anyway, so I'm happy to help them out.

How do you prepare your green beans?


Do you ever fix them with bacon and onion?


It has been AGES since I've done more than open up a bag of frozen green beans and cook them in some water. Ages ago, I'd take the time to make them with bacon and onion.

A small group of us are making a meal for a mutual friend that had a baby, and I'm preparing green beans and a fruit salad. I want it to be MORE than just plain ol' green beans.

My favorite way to make them is with caramelized shallots.
Green Beans with Caramelized Shallots - Martha Stewart Recipes
They're SO good. But to be honest, more often than not, I stick the bag in the microwave and then sprinkle salt on them. That's about it.

I bet they're delicious with bacon and onions!

Hi guys!

I've been lurking today, but I haven't been posting. It seems like something comes up every time I try. I just wanted to let you know that I'm here!

Do you ever fix them with bacon and onion?


It has been AGES since I've done more than open up a bag of frozen green beans and cook them in some water. Ages ago, I'd take the time to make them with bacon and onion.

A small group of us are making a meal for a mutual friend that had a baby, and I'm preparing green beans and a fruit salad. I want it to be MORE than just plain ol' green beans.
I just do canned green beans. I have wanted to make a better version though.

I know that your friend will really appreciate the meal!

I would think that if she protested with the electric company, they would come after you. Yipes.
I ditto you, Tracy. I think a compromise is best.

I'm so sorry, Kris!

I'm sorry it didn't work out. Nobody likes to spend time cooking to not enjoy the end result!

Thanks for reminding me! I need to pick up some cheese. I made some squash casserole yesterday, and I didn't have any.

I really don't know how to make veggies other than in casserole form. It's a serious problem!

That really stinks. I feel bad for her.
