Cookies & Cream Cupcakes

Hey All!

I am sorry that I have gone AWOL recently. My life has been incredibly boring! Along with that, I have been trying the 4-Hour Diet and have had a hard time feeling inspired to make great meals.

However, on a recent visit to my boyfriend’s place, I was forced to make some amazing cupcakes. I’ve made them a few times before and for some reason they are incredibly loved by all of the men in my life. My brother, my boyfriend, my dad… They just always want them!

So I whipped up a batch and I could only save this one to photograph in some dying light for my bf and his brother ate 4 as soon as they came out of the oven.

Cookies & Cream Cupcakes (from the blog How Sweet It Is)

Delicious. Simply delicious.

My life is starting to get a little more exciting so I will have many new adventures to post! I just graduated from university, returned from a little jaunt to New York City, and will be leaving for Paris soon. Tomorrow I will post about Alexander McQueen and the chaos of shoe sales!

Also, this weekend is Polo for Heart here in Aurora, Ontario. It is a weekend full of polo and fun and is all in support of the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
