Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

Every morning when I get up one of the first things I do after getting the kids their breakfast is sit down and check the blogs that I follow. These ladies are amazing and are always supplying me with wonderful new recipes and ideas to try. This recipe was on Annie's Eats this morning and since we're fans of the cookie I thought I would see how these turned out. Hers are much much prettier than mine, I only have a small star tip, but they taste wonderful.

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

You know you have a baking problem when you're sitting on the couch, the kids are napping so the house is finally quiet, and all you can think about is what do you have on hand in the kitchen that you can throw together to make some sort of baked item. A cookie, a cupcake, a muffin or brownies. Well this is what I had on hand and this is what I made.

Lemon Frosted Lemon Cake

Robbie and I both love lemons! And this cake was moist yet dense and full of lemon flavor. The icing was sweet and tart. The fragrance of the batter is amazing! Next time I will leave out the lemon zest as neither of us are fans of it but it certainly does add to the aroma of the cake. This cake could be eaten in the morning with your coffee or as a dessert. I found myself nibbling on it throughout the entire day. In fact we had already dug into it before I remembered to take a picture!

Chocolate Banana Muffins

While browsing one of my favorite blogs I found this recipe posted there. My kids will eat nearly anything that comes out of the oven in cupcake shape without questioning it. They love chocolate and banana flavors so I thought we'd give this one a try.
