The activity in our tiny kitchen over the past two weeks has been minimal.
Let me rephrase that.
There has been an abundance of activity in our tiny kitchen over the past two weeks. Court Kitty has sank his teeth into every bag and plastic container he can find. Harrison has taken at least a dozen naps on the table and a handful in the wok. Sebastian has rolled around on top of an orange bell pepper like it’s his soulmate before becoming indifferent and leaving in search of his own tail to chase.
But there has been almost no activity that could be called cooking or baking. Twice I have slapped a veggie burger between two buns. I’ve poured take-out into a couple of bowls. I may have peeled a banana or two. I dirtied one spoon when I ate soy ice cream out of the container. I ate a bag of raisins while perched next to the sink. I pretended to be busy moving dishes around when I was really trying to avoid watching the final minutes of a final hockey game.
So I thought this would be a great week to share some of my favorite past recipes with you fine folks. Next week we’ll whip up something new together. But this week, how about we look back at cupcakes, fries and other tasty treats?
Butter Pecan Cupcakes. I crave you all the time.
Chocolate Covered Potato Chips. Are you for real? Yes, yes you are.
Baked Salt and Vinegar Potato Wedges. These babies turned out to be a hit even though there was zero frosting involved.
Bourbon Peach Cobbler. Sweet heaven.
Baked Broccoli Burgers. Get your veg on.
Citrus Granola Parfait. Health is wealth, kids.
Orange Shortbread Cookies. I had a hard time not eating all the candied peel before mixing it into the dough.
Hazelnut Chocolate Cupcakes. Swirly goodness.
Peanut Butter Popcorn Cake. From me to you.
Sloppy Joe Sliders. Make a mess and then eat it.
Chipotle Cashew Cheese. Don’t be scared.
Maple Peanut Butter French Toast. Just a normal breakfast, right?
Apricot Lemon Cupcakes. Fruit and frosting.
