Before I get into the cupcakes (!!)…Happy Monday! So far my morning has consisted of oats, coffee, Regis & Kelly (Lucy Bustamante was co-hosting with Regis…she’s a newscaster down here and she was super great this morning), gym, and blog reading. Phew! And, let me add that my oats this morning were superb…topped with Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter & blueberries and made with Living Harvest Unsweetened Vanilla Hempmilk. Holy Yum…is Hempmilk delicious, or what? It made my oats super creamy. Total love for Hempmilk now!
On to other matters...skincare. I have been contemplating investing in a skincare line for a few weeks now. I see a dermatologist randomly (my skin is clear) and I have prescription face creams- Tazorac and Benzaclin. Although these creams have worked wonders on my skin, sometimes these truly dry out my face. It’s just so uncomfortable. If y’all have any recomendations please let me know! I would love a good moisturizer, essentially.
Dinner was great last night…Giada’s salmon with puff pastry and pesto recipe was delicious. I was a little skeptical about the puff pastry part, but it actually turned out really delicious. And the presentation of the salmon, tomato, green pesto combo was really gorgeous. But the star of the night were the cupcakes from the Kupcake Factory!
We orderd half a dozen- 2 Red Velvet, 2 Wedding Cake, and 2 Chocolate Cake with Vanilla frosting. Lizzy and I could not decide between the Wedding Cake and the Red Velvet so we cut them each in half to share. The icing was super sweet on both…I am not a huge fan of super sweet icing, but I enjoyed every last bite! The Red Velvet cake was so moist…it was Lizzy’s favorite. I loved the Red Velvet but if I had to choose I would pick the vanilla- almond flavor of the Wedding Cake as my favorite! While my mama said the Chocolate with Vanilla frosting was her favorite! I can’t wait to try different flavors…like the Sweet Praline Cupcake (a buttermilk cake topped with housemade creamy pralines with a caramel cream cheese frosting) and the Reese’s Peices Cupcake (a brownie chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting rolled in reese’s peices candy bits). You can drool over the other flavors and photos here! That Pumpkin Cupcake sounds perfect for fall! So, all in all last night was a wonderful night filled with food and family…told ya I love Sundays 🙂
