Pas-Tri-es — Cherry Tri Cupcakes

Cherry Cupcake Featured

These Cherry Tri Cupcakes are really delicious. The best part about making cupcakes (and cooking in general) is that once you get a general recipe down, with a few easy adjustments you can have 10 more recipes in your repertoire.

Pas-Tri-es — Tri-ple Berry Champagne Cupcakes

Champagne Cupcakes ready to be packed

These champagne cupcakes look and taste fancy, but they’re super easy to make (trust me). I came up with this recipe when I needed to use up some leftover champagne from the night before.

They’re the perfect size for topping my mini cupcakes* and garnishing desserts. I like to eat these completely unadorned, so if you’re making jam or […] Read more…

Pan-Tri Essentials — Tangerine bomb

I love citrus. Every house I’ve grown up in we’ve had a tangerine tree, so I have a particular affinity for tangerines. They’re like an orange’s sassier cousin. They add so much color and tang to everything I add them to and have a certain bite that’s missing from other citrus fruits. Especially when you […] Read more…
