Pineapple Upside-down Cupcakes

by on Jun.28, 2010, under Yummies

It’s a known fact, smaller = more cute. It’s just one of those laws a nature like gravity, conservation of mass, and always getting stuck in traffic when you really need to pee. I saw a can of pineapple rings in my pantry over the weekend and was struck with the idea of Pineapple Upside-down Cake, but almost immediately on the heels of that though came it idea to miniaturize it into cupcakes. Now, I think new and original ideas are a dying species, so I wasn’t surprised to see after a quick check of the Googles, that there are lots of other people who’ve thought about shrinking this awesome dessert too!

Here are 6 of the most delicious looking recipes for Pineapple Upside-down Cupcakes I found. This will be next on my baking list, right after I make some patriotic cupcakes for Independence Day this weekend. Stay tuned for more on that later.

New York Cheesecake

by on Apr.09, 2010, under Yummies

I have been looking for a good cheesecake recipe for several months now, and this one makes my mouth water just looking at it. I have been intimidated by the idea of making a homemade cheesecake, so complex and so many flavor options. It also seems to me people are very opinionated about cheesecakes, they either love ’em or hate ’em. My sweetie is a huge cheesecake lover and I really want to make something he will want to rave about.

I also like the no-can approach taken with this. In an attempt to cook healthier, I am trying to cut back, if not eliminate, processed foods from my cooking. This has meant more work on my part, but I feel better eating things that I know exactly where every single item in the dish came from. It has it’s pros and cons, but I am going to try and stick with it for a while and see if I can feel a measurable benifit. But enough with the chatting, on to the yummy stuff!
