If you’re anything like me, you are probably wildly addicted to the time suck machine that is Pinterest. I’ve spent many a ridiculous hour pouring over and then re-pinning pins from other internet whores who do the same. Which, until now hasn’t really struck me as an exercise in futility, but there it is. In the time that I’ll never get back, I’ve amassed a fairly large collection of boards with such gems as this:
Really? So I should troll the internet for platitudes and ways to update anything with chalkboard paint? Alright, if I must, I must. *Dramatic sigh*
Ok, so my point, you ask? My point is that I’ve also amassed several boards of food porn, including recipes for Toffee Crunch Cupcakes and Smores Cupcakes, so when we decided to host a spring BBQ last week, I whipped out the list and started polling the attendees for what they’d like to eat. The result? Malibu Pina Colada Cupcakes with Lime Cream Cheese Frosting (booze wins out every time in my house). As per my usual inability to follow rules, I used the recipe as more of a guideline – I skipped the lime in the frosting, opting for a sprinkle of coconut instead. I skipped the glaze in the middle and I added about 3 times the amount crushed pineapple to the batter. They turned out pretty good, but I’m thinking next time the Toffee Crunch will win out. I just need to figure out a way to incorporate some booze!
