White Chocolate Cupcakes!
About this Cook
I've always been more of a baker than a cook. I'm all about natural ingredients - you won't find vegetable shortening or food coloring in my baked goods!
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, cakes, cupcakes... sweet, delicious creations!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm creating new traditions every day!
My cooking tragedies
Last year I was baking pecan pies for Thanksgiving (the Pioneer Woman's recipe - it's FABULOUS!). As I was putting the uncooked pies in the oven, the pan got caught on the edge of the rack, and both pies spilled into the oven and onto the floor. The most impressive part was that I didn't even cuss!! :)

Apple Crisp II
This was fantastic! Like KATTELYN, I left out the water. I used Granny Smith apples, and I followed the rest of the recipe exactly, and it was absolutely amazing. I took it to my Bible study group, and it was completely demolished. My husband was so mad we didn't have any to bring home. I will definitely be making this again... and again... and again. :)

White Chocolate Pound Cake
UPDATE: I created this recipe as cupcakes and changed a few things that knocked this baby even further out of the ballpark! Instead of the layer of white chocolate in the middle, I eliminated that and added white chocolate chips. Bake for about 23 minutes. Let cool. THEN - cut out the center and fill with raspberry preserves. Instead of drizzle or frosting, I made a whipped white chocolate ganache and drizzled some raspberry *stuff* on top. Oh. My. Gosh. It was the best thing EVER!! Fall 2011: This was definitely one of the best cakes I've ever made. It was fantastic! So moist and tasty - and SO rich. A small piece will do ya. I will definitely be making this again... and again... and again...
