Yeah. Still on a diet. I’m just a glutton for punishment. Take a look at these!
Yeah, I really am on a diet but honestly, I only had one bite! Oh, I looked at them a lot, photographed them even more, and then smelled them all afternoon while they were cooling but I only ate one bite and that was only in my capacity as a responsible blogger. My mother-in-law invited us for dinner and I decided I would bring these. It is either a Persian custom or a particular aversion to my dessert cooking but whenever I have a dinner party and invite the in-laws one of them always shows up with an uninvited dessert. What’s up with that? Don’t they think I plan a dessert when I make up a menu? I don’t spend hours planning, shopping and cooking just so the crowning glory of the event can be from the kitchen of someone else! Anyway, you can’t fight culture and they mean no malice so my way of adapting? I have decided that turn-about is fair play! If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em! Now I just show up at her house with unannounced treats of my! Another great solution that allows me to cook but indulge.
Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Cupcakes
I bought this cookbook the first day it was out but this is the first recipe I have made from it. I hope the other recipes don’t have the same misleading cooking time. Perhaps I surf on over to the Martha Stewart Cupake club for a looksie and read up before I make anything else. They are 50 some-odd baker/bloggers who all bake the same cupcake from the book and post and discuss the results on their blogs. Its quite fantastic to see all their creations show up on the web at the same time. Next up they are doing Jumbo Cream-Filled Chocolate Cupcakes. Hmmm…
