Let Me Upgrade You: Peanut Butter Cupcakes

This week has been one of those weeks. While fun and exciting things have happened, they’ve left me exhausted and begging for a nap. Don’t judge me, naps are amazing. And this week isn’t over yet! I still have to build my Ikea dresser — a task that Shaylyn said will take me at least three hours, awesome— try my hand at selling pizzas, and spend all weekend with my friends wine tasting for birthday month. I know, rough life. However, in the midst of all the crazy going on in my life right now, I wanted to share something quite fabulous with you.

As you’re well aware, I’ve never been shy about my love for peanut butter and chocolate. One time, I ate five Reese’s peanut butter Easter eggs. Back to back to back to back to back. I’m pretty sure I only stopped because I ran out of them. Obvi they’re my favorite.

It should come as no surprise that I was really, really upset on Easter when the Easter bunny didn’t bring my any of my favorite concoctions to nosh on all day. I decided to get creative that fateful Sunday afternoon– I invented the easiest peanut butter cupcakes. Ever. And then I made the easiest chocolate peanut butter frosting ever.


Yeah. Even I get mad at me.

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

First, I’d like to start off with a Giant congratulations to the San Francisco Giants (see what I did there?) for not only winning the NLDS to advance to the NLCS today, but also for being the first National League team to rally from down 0-2 in the Division Series to win it! To give you an image as to how excited I am that this happened, I was listening to the game online while at work, and when Romo threw the third strike, I was fist pumping and silent screaming at my desk. I probably looked crazy. Okay, I’ll stop boasting about my Giants.

A while back I made 1, 2, 3 Cookies and mentioned that I combined the traditional 1, 2, 3 Cookie recipe with that of my peanut butter kiss cookies. It’s been a while since I made PBKCs, so I decided to make them on Monday night. Now, I’m finally getting around to posting up that recipe!

Bite-Sized Polenta Pizza

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe, hasn’t it? Well wait no more! I know I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again, I love pizza. It could have to do with my not-so slight obsession with cheese. Or the fact that I can eat a whole can of black olives in one sitting. By myself. The problem with pizza is that I either have to order one over the phone/at a restaurant, or I have to buy pizza dough and whatever toppings I’m feeling like that day. I mean, who wants to leave their house just to have the deliciousness that is pizza? (Hint: not me!) Well the lovely Ms. Kimberly at Poor Girl Eats Well, one of my favorite food blogs, has changed the way I get my pizza fix!
