1001 Cupcakes

The cover of 1001 Cupcakes, Cookies, and Other Tempting Treats
looks like a page from what I hope Heaven will be like. The promise
it makes is kept beautifully in its 299 pages. The range of recipes
is amazing and inspiring. Novice and kitchen will find sweets at the
perfect level of difficulty.
The only problem is deciding what to make first. Rum and raisin
cookies with orange filling look super. But so do mocha cupcakes with
whipped cream, brandied peach galettes, chocolate florentines,
tropical fruit cookie sandwiches, mocha biscotti, black forest
brownies, chocolate eclairs, strawberry tartlets, baklava, Italian
chocolate truffles...
I highly recommend this book which I find to be in excellent
On a personal note, the hubby and I recently celebrated our 23rd
wedding anniversary. We went out with the kids for breakfast (Dennys)
and supper (99). In between we went for a drive in the Moosehead Lake
region and had wild blueberry ice cream.
A great big shout out and thank you go out to Eugene for 23 amazing
years and 3 awesome children,
