no pics except on the original page - i made these cupcakes gluten free (with rice flour)
other than that, stuck to the recipe for the cupcakes and did an interpretation of the frosting.

so the peanut butter and chocolate cupcake recipe is HERE

and for the frosting i used instant vanilla pudding
1/2c cream cheese
1/3 cup icing sugar
1c frozen whipped topping (cool whip or others)
1c light cream
whipped up with the electric mixer

and a nice treat for labour day

backyard picnic

it's been a while
a year of pain - inspired by an injury at work, has led me to neglect this blog
time to turn that around
and so simply
the backyard picnic we had

a plate of charcuterie
- triple creme brie
- brie heated in the oven with olive oil and garlic
- olives and deli meat from lucianos

- main course was tomatoes from the garden
and steak marinated and then on the bbq
with a side of pico de gallo - made from ingredients in the garden (except for the splash of lime juice

fabulous and simple - the boys asked if we can have backyard picnics all the time...

juice for the boys - something fruity and more potent for their parents

2yr old cuts the cheese...backwards knife hold

steak, pico de gallo and cheese

simple charcuterie - yum!
