yummy

we had several family & friend get-togethers this past weekend. there's nothing like a party to inspire me to try some new recipes!

first up: chocolate cupcakes & peanut butter icing, by ina garten (the barefoot contessa) [via missy]

delish!! we *cheated* a little and used a box mix for the cupcakes. the icing was subtle and not too sweet. it sort of reminded me of what a melted "mary jane" would taste like.




and to appease the non-chocolate people: orange cream cheese pie from jill [via elizabeth's awesome blogger book of summer recipes.]




5 stars on both recipes from my family!! (jen, i definitely had a cupcake on your behalf!!)

I don't know what I am doing for Family Home Evening tonight, but I do know what the treat will be. Those cupcakes look too good to be true!

If you ever get a chance to make the actual cake part of Ina Garten's cupcakes, they are delicious. The cake is amazing!
