If you look at my blog roll on the left, you will see I have them divided kinda by interests, family etc. In the third group down, there is a phenomenal blog called The Sunday Baker. I found Tanya's blog from another website I frequent called Two Peas in a Bucket. That site is mostly scrap booking, but there are several boards for different interests, and I happened upon a posting asking for blogs for crafters, and cooking. Tanya's blog was listed and from day one I have read it religiously, if not daily, at least several times a week. I say all that to let you in a secret..... a lot of bloggers have give aways...or blog candy as many call it. Tanya posted a give-away several weeks back for unusual or favorite recipes. I posted a comment on her blog with my mom's recipe for spaghetti cabonera. Well it won for that particular contest. I was very excited because the give away for that contest was an amazing cookbook called "Hello, Cupcake!" by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson. Nothing but cupcakes, and the unique ways to decorate for any theme or holiday.
Thew neatest thing about this cookbook is that most of these cupcakes are not done with fancy equipment, or supplies. Most can be done with simple decorations and using a ziplock as the icing bag.
Drop on over to The Sunday Baker, check out her blog, she has some outstanding recipes, crafts and contests. Oh and I will post pictures when I make my cupcakes.....if they are cute that is.
