Food memories are some of the strongest. When I smell onions being caramelized with peppers in olive oil I’m immediately transported to when my parents would make fajitas. Or when I smell tomato sauce cooking on the stove it usually meant lasagna was on it’s way. But those are both memories conjured up mostly from smell. These cupcakes, while only just a small fraction of the food I’ve been made by my grandmother and probably only made a couple of times by her, are something that everytime I go to visit her, I think of these cupcakes.
This cake was originally going to be posted as an Olympics themed “eat this while you’re watching the Olympics because it has snowball in the name” post but what do you know the Olympics is over. Was it shorter this year? In the blink of an eye it was here and now it’s gone.
In case ya’ll haven’t noticed, this whole month of October I’ve been doing sort of a “Oktoberfest Beer Monday”. Ya know, who wants to do meatless monday when you could have beer monday? Oktoberfest logic.
So the other day I was in the car with my mom and we we’re just talking about random stuff. And of course me being a girl I started talking about my frustration with guys and why they’re so stupid. So of course, my mom told me I should write a guide for some things guys should learn to do and not do. And trust me, this is from personal experience.
