Salted Caramel Drenched Cupcakes

9 Apr

Morning ya’ll.

I’m about to ruin your diet only one day into the week, who’s ready for it?

I don’t know about you, but I’m the kind of person that will pack a fairly healthy lunch, bring a travel mug of green tea, and eat a healthy breakfast Monday-Thursday.

When Friday rolls around, all bets are off.

I usually grab a starbucks on the way to work, maybe a breakfast sandwich too, probably order take out for lunch with the ladies from work, and then who knows what will happen later on.

Like I said though, this time we’re going to kick this week off with something naughty!

These cupcakes are bananas. Not really, that might be somewhat healthy.

These are sooo, sooo, not.

But they are darn good. I played around with the recipe for these a few times before I got it the way I wanted it.

Wanna know a secret? Lean in real close and I’ll tell ya.

The secret is boxed cake mix.

Okay, I haven’t been exactly secretive about the fact that I think cake mixes are a perfectly acceptable ingredient to use. They are easy and the cupcakes always come out perfectly. Win win!

Crispy Fried Snapper with Spicy Chipotle Tartar Sauce

Meow everyone!

I hope you are all having a FAB Thursday so far!

This week has been insanity for me. All the BC’ers know that Monday was when the HST went out and PST & GST came back which paired with the long weekend and end of the month, caused me lots of headaches at work. Thankfully it is over and we can move on!

On the bright side (literally) us BC’ers also got some amazing weather over the Easter weekend. It was soo needed after the rainy & dreary weather we’ve had for the past 7 or 8 months. People can say what they want about us being lucky it doesn’t snow here, but over half a year of darkness can be difficult to deal with too.

Since the weather was so great, we got our patio and outdoor furniture cleaned up, and spent the whole day outside. I did a little of this…

And a little of that…

Notice I still have the beer. I wish I could say it was the same one, but it really, really wasn’t.
