Yummy Cupcakes

After a brief break from our big baking adventure (the girls have been very busy the past couple of weekends), Ella and I are back in the kitchen.  This weekend we made cupcakes.  I found a recipe from Robyn on her add a pinch blog for The Best White Cake Recipe.  We decided to try the recipe but make cupcakes instead of cake. And are we glad we did!  The cupcakes are amazing.  Ella and I both agree that this is the best white cupcake recipe ever!!

A TASTY CASSEROLE

Who doesn’t like an easy to prepare yummy casserole.  I came across this recipe from Cooks.com awhile back and it has quickly become my favorite go-to dish.  Of course, as I always do, I modified the recipe to fit the needs and taste of my family.  It is called a “Breakfast Casserole” but it very appropriate for any meal.

Here is the recipe:

1 package (30 oz.) frozen shredded hash browns

½ cup melted butter

2 cups (a bit more or less according to your taste) shredded Cheddar cheese

1 lb. pork sausage OR you could shredded ham OR a mixture of sausage and ham

1- 1 ½ cups milkRead More »
