Hi Def

Well, we did it. We took the plunge. Tim found a deal on a big flat TV that was too good to pass up.

We don't have the HD cable service yet, but we are loving it so far! And I can't wait for football season!!!

Cupcake Deviation

This one is not in the 500 Cupcakes book, but I like it A LOT. It's super easy and was a hit with the book club!

They are no bake cheesecakes and there is an Oreo on the bottom! Need I say more?

Technical Difficulties

Well, today's cupcake recipe was the delightful sounding Mint Chocolate Chip cupcakes. Unfortch, they were somewhat better in theory than in actual execution. (At least in my opinion). The frosting turned out weird. It tasted fine, but the texture was off, I thought. Tim, of course, pronounced them delicious, God bless him, but I am not so sure.

Can anyone explain this? The frosting for this recipe called for 2/3 cup butter and 2 cups powdered sugar. The first recipe I tried used 1 cup of butter and 3 cups powdered sugar. That doesn't seem right. No wonder I liked the first one better! I also did not have the requested "Dutch process cocoa" - just plain old cocoa powder. Oh well. Tim will eat them. :)

I love orange. And bags. And sales, so this really works for me!
