This & That...

Finally some progress on Snowflakes:

I got this recipe in my inbox from a Martha Stewart newsletter for Carrot Cupcakes. Carrot Cupckaes

They are very tasty, although mine came out more like muffins, rather than cupcakes. Which is not such a bad thing because I'll probably have my fair share for breakfast. Her directions didn't specify using a mixer, so I did it all by hand, which may have a lot to do with the texture. The orange juice/allspice flavor combination is unexpected but inspired. I also added 2 TBSP butter to the frosting. Note I didn't show the entire pan so you can't see how many I've eaten. Here's what they look like inside:

Carrot cupcakes2 Basically, carrot cupcakes exist for the sole purpose of being a handy, but tasty implement for getting the cream cheese frosting into my mouth.

I'm liking this Windows Live Writer- I can cut & paste, it has a REAL spell checker (now let's see if I use it), I have more control over picture & text placement. Let's see how badly it screws things up with Blogger......OK....already I don't see how to label... maybe back to Blogger for that.
