I discovered frozen cupcakes. My life is complete. A couple of weeks ago I had an abundance of carrot cake cupcakes that I didn’t know what to do with so I just took the whole container and stuck it in the freezer. I’ve never froze cupcakes before so I was leery but I took one out the other night and it was still as good as when they were fresh and it defrosted quickly on the counter. This is really going to affect my cupcake consumption!
Artichokes are one of my favorite things to eat but I don’t eat them that often. This time of year, between CSA seasons, I eat all the food I don’t get to the rest of the year. Since I was a child my mom served us boiled artichokes and would dip the leaves in salt or maybe butter. I usually make them this way but a few years ago I started grilling them on my grill pan. It’s a nice change from the usual.
