Thank you so much, Carrie! Im so glad that the cupcakes are (still!) a hit. Your comment started my 2013 off on a wonderful note!!

Thanks, Sherry! So glad that you enjoyed the scones--one of my favorite recipes :) Happy holidays! Julie
Hi Theresa! Thanks so much for your email and for finding my blog! Regarding your buttercream question, I would suggest using a 1:1 ratio to substitute cream cheese for butter. In other words, use only 8 ounces of butter and add 4 ounces of cream cheese (or 6 and 6). You might need to add a bit more cream at the end, just because cream cheese is a bit stiffer than butter, but I doubt you would need to add much. Hope this helps--enjoy the buttercream! Julie

Thank you Stewart! I think that I need to wait to give out my recipe. I believe that the World Food Championships has rights to it now, and they might publish it. Will keep you posted.
Thank you, Annie! Hope you have a great weekend :)

One of the cardinal rules of food blogging (or any blogging, for that matter) is: Never start a post telling your readers, "I'm sorry that I haven't posted in a while, but I've been very busy." Well, I don't know... Continue reading

Thank you , Lisa! Im so envious of you east coasters this time of year. It was still 100 today. Ugh. What I wouldnt give to go to a New Jersey apple orchard tomorrow :)
Thanks, Leanna! I knew that someone else out there must watch it. I dont know how I got so hooked on it -- I can barely do a cartwheel and I am a New England Patriots fan! Have a great weekend :)

Thank you, Jennifer!
Thank you, Angie! I cant wait for fall weather to officially arrive -- still close to 100 degrees here. Hope you are having a great week :)

Ah! The circle of life. Last week we experienced a loss in our household. The good news is that it wasn't a person or a pet. It wasn't even a plant. It was a treadmill. My treadmill. My BELOVED treadmill.... Continue reading

Hi Lara! Thank you so much for your message and for telling me about your substitutions. I am so glad that you enjoyed the muffins. These have always been one of my favorites. They freeze great, and I think that the flavors even improve the next day. Have a great week :)
