Good Food Friday

Let me introduce you to the most delicious cupcake I've ever tasted. And I've tasted a few cupcakes in my days. This is not for the faint of heart, nor is it for dieters. This is a cupcake for the most important of celebrations. Like the fact that it's Friday.

It's a cupcake, with cookie dough inside. That's right--a cupcake and cookie in one. I made these for Button Boy's first birthday party, and they were a hit. The key is to make sure the cookie dough is good and frozen before you bake. The recipe calls for homemade cookie dough and a boxed cake mix, but if you're short on time or motivation, you could use pre-made cookie dough. I've also discovered there is a brownie batter cupcake that takes a close second, but am holding out for a legitimate excuse for making those.

What I actually wanted to post was one of my main course recipes, but I didn't have any pics, and I didn't want to leave you hanging without any visuals. I have tons to share, and an overly stuffed recipe book to prove it.

It hasn't become second nature for me to photograph food while I cook. My cooking style, though becoming more refined by the day, is more like a science experiment. I never know what the end result will be, but I have a pretty good hypothesis. And so it is with my picture taking. Unknown results, but here I have many chances to get it right. I shall continue with my mediocrity in both to share some good eats with you here on our humble blog. Mama Pear has some classics as well. Until then, feel free to drool over the cupcake image...unless you have a laptop. That's not safe. Much love from The Sweetest Pear.
