the Kupcake Kraze

So I am the latest supporter of the national trend of eating cupcakes. Why are these mini cakes such a hot commodity? Why are there bakeries specifically dedicated to cupcakes rising up in cities all over the country? (Sorry for the very bad puns.) Maybe because they are delicious. Like the above specimen from our neighborhood cupcake bakery that just opened. It was coconut.

And unlike other food trends (like wraps, which are always disappointing) i think this one may stick. They ARE trendy, but they're classy and simple and satisfying.

rot n' cheese

Today I (Jenn) made homemade macaroni and cheese, except we didn't have any macaroni noodles, we had rotini. Kris dubbed it rot n' cheese.

It was really good and easy. You just melt butter, stir in flour, then mix in milk and let it boil. Then goes in grated cheeses and I added veggies. Mix in the noodles, sprinkle bread crumbs on top, bake in the oven, and that's it! Delicious.
