Ho Ho Cupcakes

2013-08-19 15.21.03


Everyone has eaten a ho-ho cupcake once in their life, right?  Growing up I ate my fair share of the individual packaged chocolate cakes filled with a sugary white filling, then glazed with a thin waxy layer of chocolate.  I didn’t seem to mind eating them as a kid, but as an adult I craved more… more chocolate flavor in the cake, more butter taste in the filling, and more of a rich intense chocolate taste for the glaze.

Farmgirl’s Crazy Cookies

This once upon a time, this farmgirl was recently roped into caring for my sister’s chickens while she was away for the weekend. Not a bad deal when you get to keep the egg you find. Being around chickens is nothing new to me, but yet when it’s you verses a hen sitting on eggs it can be quit comical. As a kid I remember the chicken experience differently (yes mom, I do remember once in awhile 😉 )  Let’s take a peek at the pretty colored eggs that the girls, my fine feathered friends, my egg suppliers left me…

Inspiration is all around me. It comes in various forms, colors, textures, feelings, tones, and nature (I could go on and on, but I’m sure you get the idea 🙂 ).  Many times throughout the day I have my own display of fireworks shooting off in my head.

Pizza is one of those meals that comes to mind when in a pinch for a quick meal or feeding a group of hungry kids. It’s easy to pick up the phone and order from your local pizza shop (which I do often) but where is the personal creative touch in that? Lets put aside the usual marinara sauce and stir things up a bit with giving cheeseburger pizza some much needed attention. There are many versions and components in making a pizza. This version happens to bring the best of two worlds together in one big messy bite. A cheeseburger taste in pie form and creating a dinnertime buzz. Wait till you taste this. It packs a serious cheeseburger taste!
