Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Are cupcakes healthy for you if there’s a vegetable in it? You know, don’t you eat more veggies when you sneak them into something?  I try to tell myself that every time I eat one of these cupcakes–I am getting my daily allowance of vegetables.  In all seriousness, while they may not be fully healthy, it is cake after all, these cupcakes are so moist and delicious, you’ll be hard-pressed to eat only one.

Easter Sugar Cookies

It’s been such a busy week, I am sorry that I haven’t posted in a while.  At work on Monday, I had two co-workers ask if I could make Easter sugar cookies.  One wanted a dozen polka-dotted eggs for their office aides, (I work in a high school), and the other wanted two dozen variety cookies to fill her children’s Easter baskets and adorn her Easter table.  So what did I do?  After I panicked a bit, (I haven’t had this large of a cookie order before), I called my mom to see if she could watch Matthew Wednesday morning while I worked.  Moms are great to have around.  And grandmas are even better. 

I was already planning on making Easter cookies for my family, so I combined my two paid orders with my gifts to my family and decorated five dozen cookies.  By Wednesday night I had sore muscles in my right arm I didn’t even know I had.  Needless to say, piping cookies doesn’t use the same muscles as writing.  Anyway, I am really glad how they turned out, and was especially pleased with the bunny faces, as I thought those were going to be the hardest to do.  They were more fun to decorate than I thought!

These pictures were taken at night, (as I had to deliver the cookies Thursday morning), so they are a little yellow.

Here are all five dozen drying on my kitchen counter.  It’s a good thing yesterday was the last day of my cleanse, (see previous post), otherwise I would have been tempted to eat a few.

These pictures are cookies for my family.  Surprise family if you’re reading this!  You’ll get to eat this yummy goodness on Sunday.
