All the single ladies, now put your hands up!

Hehehe, that song can get annoying really quickly...

So, after starting my three new jobs, I've been pretty darn busy -- but I haven't abandoned the foodie world completely!  Haven't thought up any interesting recipes as of late, but here are a few purty pictures!

Okay, so maybe they're not the prettiest of foodie photos...well hey, I never claimed to be a photographer.  ;) 

Photo 1:  I've started adding fresh greens and radicchio to my stir-fry.  Gives it a nice, spring-y taste, along with a satisfying crunch.

Photo 2:  Yet another one of CCK's recipes! 
She refers to it as the "Single Lady Cupcake."

The Single Lady Cupcake is infinitely awesome for three different reasons.
1.  It's the perfect recipe to bust out when you have a massive sugar craving, but don't want to make an entire batch of cupcakes. 
2.  There are so many different things you can mix in!
3.  Apparently, if you're too lazy to bother with the oven, you can just nuke the batter in the microwave for 90 seconds!  [Guess what I'll be having for dessert every night once I'm back downstate at school?  Har har...]

I mixed dark chocolate chips and dried tart cherries in with mine, and topped it with coconut.  Oh, and the frosting?  Actually, the frosting is what de-veganized this recipe, haha.  I just whipped about an ounce of cream cheese and a tablespoon of powdered sugar together, then added a few drops of vanilla extract, along with a drop or two of almond extract (that stuff is STRONG).  The results were pretty much amazing.  =p


  1. I can't wait to try that at school :)

  2. You need to update!!! I need to try more recipes. Please.

  3. Dude. You read my mind, Anonymous -- do you like black beans? ;)
