In June, my friend Cherie turned the ever so fabulous 40 (which is the new 30)! Her husband ever so sweetly asked if I would be interested in catering some items for the event. It was my first time doing such a task, but I was happy to oblige and fit it into my schedule for a friend! We were keenly aware since most of the guests would probably getting manicures that the food should be ‘finger friendly.’ I tried to come up with things that were not too messy and could be eaten in one bite maybe with the help of a toothpick or fork.
Belated Happy Canada to our friends up north, and here’s to yet another exciting Fourth of July. Mine is going to start off with a bang by running a 5k in the morning and slowly go from there! I was thinking back this week that it has been just about a year since I started food blogging, even though I didn’t start my own blog until October 2009. I fondly, okay, I fondly remember NOW Christey (@fotocuisine) planting the seed in my head I should start my own blog. Like a good bread, I just needed some time to rise and think about it before I started to pull my own blog out of the oven!
Thinking back to where I was a year ago, here’s the recipe that started it all – Strawberry Cupcakes! Decorate them with some crushed pecans, blueberries, sprinkles or just leave ‘em naked and enjoy every delicious bite of icing!Pin It
