Lemon Vanilla Cupcakes with Whipped Cream Cheese Icing

We meant to make strawberry cupcakes, but I procrastinated a little bit and the strawberries started to go bad– oops. I still wanted to make cupcakes, though, so I improvised big time and decided to use some lemons we had kicking around. These came out great– they are dense but moist, and the lemon gives them a great kick. The frosting, though, is the best part; it has the consistency of whipped cream but it tastes like cream cheese. I really heaped on the frosting because it’s so good; this recipe will give you the right proportions to give each cupcake a generous amount of frosting!

Double Layer Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fudge

I know I shouldn’t admit this, but I have been eating pieces of this fudge for breakfast. It’s just so good, I can’t help it. The hardest part about this recipe was figuring out the proportions of sugar to peanut butter, etc. but that’s all done now, so enjoy this easy fudge! Just a warning, you will either need to do a lot of whisking, or get an electric blender for the peanut butter fudge, so I suggest tracking down an electric blender/mixer/food processor.

Lemon Bars with Blueberry Balsamic Reduction

These are so good– flaky pastry, tart lemon, oozy blueberry. Deceptively easy to make, too, and perfect for summer! We just slopped on the blueberry sauce, but if you were feeling creative, I’m sure these could be decorated even more beautifully.

Oreo Suprise Cupcakes

We had a porch sale this weekend with Ryan and Megan and needed some baked goods for weekend fuel. Meg and I wanted to do cupcakes and these seemed like a great idea! We sold a few at the porch sale, but kept most of them around for ourselves. Jesse likes his cold, but I like them warm! Also, these are really really easy. We cheated big time, but the results are impressive nonetheless.

Berry Crumble

Berry Crumble

We made this the other day; blackberry and strawberry crumble with coconut milk ice cream. The crumble is served warm and tastes great with the cool ice cream. It’s also a great alternative to the cobblers that have dough based toppings; ours is an oat topping with caramelized brown sugar.
