Carrot-cake Cupcakes with Ginger Cream Cheese Frosting.

I’m in Texas visiting my sister and it’s blowing my mind! I’m having so much fun meeting all of her friends and we’ve been crazy busy each day doing tons of random things. I gotta say that the food here is delicious, we’ve spent probably more than half of the time walking around to different restaurants eating scrumptious fixin’s!

Anyways, we baked these cupcakes for a party that we threw and I highly recommend that you try out the recipe… You can find it by checking out my sister’s blog. If you are living on a smaller budget or can appreciate making tasty food for really cheap prices you need to follow her blog! The next couple posts that she puts up will have my pictures in ’em too!

Goat Mozzarella, pepper, basil and leeks calzone

Goat Mozzarella, pepper, basil and leeks calzone

The smell emanating through the home was like Jehovah’s armpit…if Jehovah happened to be Italian and had a pizza oven hidden in there (and if there’s a heaven and god, he certainly does).

The recipe here.

fresh strawberries!

Strawberries come and go SO fast in MI and you just gotta take full advantage when they’re here! I whipped up this old school cake from scratch of course with oozy gooey vintage recipe frosting and all just in time to take to a friends!

Last week, I posted this photo of me cooking dinner. Mike asked what I made and suggested I share the recipe. So here it is.

I don’t measure, so everything is just estimated.

1 package of smoked sausage, sliced and then quartered (we’re trying to eat healthier around here, so I used turkey sausage – it tastes great)
1 small to medium onion, chopped
1-3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 or 2 cans of diced tomatoes, depending on how tomato-y you want it (I used 2)
Basil (fresh if you’ve got it, but dried works great too)
Other Italian-y spices (I used a bit of dried oregano and some Italian seasoning)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Pasta for 4 servings (I used whole wheat pasta – again with the healthier-ness)

Cook the pasta to package directions
Saute the sausage
Saute the onion and garlic in a bit of olive oil
Add the spices and let simmer a bit
Add the tomatoes
When the pasta’s done, drain it and add to the sausage mixture
Heat through
Serve and Enjoy!!

Let me know if you try it and how you like it!

P.S. I just realized how many made-up words I used up there. That, my friends, is why I’m a photographer and not a writer.
