Cupcake Creations | Munchies

It’s time for another cooking adventure, one of the baking variety!!   I love to cook and bake!  I think it’s always so fun to create something new.

This time I found my inspiration during a recent road trip.   My roomie and I we’re on our way back from Fort Worth and decided to do the standard stop at where else…?  The Czech Stop!  The Czech Stop is a delicious little Czech bakery nestled on the side to I35 just North of Waco in the small town of West.  As soon as you walk in the door the smell of heaven almost knocks you off your feet.  The jalapeno bread, the fruit kolaches, the cupcakes, the cookies nom nom nom….Ok.  Focus.  Focus.

While we were there I spotted a chocolate peanut butter cupcake and I thought to myself, actually I think I said out loud to Katie, “I could make that!” And so, I did.

My one up on their cupcake?  The secret err… I guess not so secret ingredient, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Minis.  One of favorite candies, right up there with Snickers.  Ooohh Snickers…and a new cupcake idea is born. hmmm…

Fresh from the oven I added the Reese’s to create this warm gooey deliciousness.

And voilà! I present to you my rich and creamy creation.  A triple chocolate fudge cupcake stuffed with Reese’s minis and topped with a rich peanut butter frosting. YUM!

They must have been good…last time I saw this container it was full. 🙂

What’s next on the baking adventure horizon?!  My friend has requested vanilla cupcakes…boooooooring. 🙂  Of course they won’t be boring old vanilla after I’m done with them.  I’m thinking of adding Oreos or I liked that Snickers I idea I mentioned earlier.  The wheels are forever turning!  You’ll just have to wait and see!

P is for Pancakes | Munchies

22 06 2011

I woke up this morning with a craving for some sweet sweet pancakes…only problem was I didn’t have pancake mix.  So I thought to myself, it can’t be that hard to make them from scratch.  While it wasn’t hard to make them it was hard to eat them. I was totally disappointed with the recipe I got online.

Do not be fooled by their golden edges. They. were. terrrrrible.

I tried adding more sugar, that didn’t help.

I tried adding more milk, that didn’t help.

I tried adding more flour, that didn’t help.

Martha Stewart would be disappointed.

Feeling defeated, I threw them all out.  I ended up having blackberries and toast with peanut butter and honey instead.  Smooth recovery.

Should you want to try the recipe yourself(although not recommended):

1 1/2 c Flour

1 Egg

1 tbsp Sugar

1 tsp Vanilla

1 tsp Ground Cinnamon

1 tbsp Oil

1 1/2 c Sweet Milk

Mix together and enjoy with your favorite syrup(or not…just sayin) 🙂

If you have a better recipe please fill me in!  I’m still craving some good pancakes…





PB & B Milkshakes | Munchies

When its freezing outside most people want to eat warm things like soup, stew or baked potatoes.  Again, that is most people…what do I want when it’s freezing outside?  Umm a milkshake.  Duh.  Gotta love that sweet tooth.

So in the spirit of MMMmmmmbracing the cold.  I decided to throw a little something together.  As usual, there is no method to my madness so attempt this recipe at your own risk.

You will need everything pictured below:

*Ice Cream *Milk *Peanut Butter *Bananas

Ice Cream! Yum!

Mason Jar Milkshake(my new signature drink)

The Aftermath

Oh and the instructions….umm throw everything in a blender and ta dah! Milkshake.  Like I said, there really is no method to this one.  Just flavor to your taste.  Enjoy!

Got a good shake idea?  Share please. 🙂
