Lately, I’ve been on a huge reading kick. For those of ya who know me, know that I’m somewhat of a book hoarder. But the last couple of years I’ve been finding it hard to find the time or the focus to read. Last week I spent an hour going through my 4 large moving tubs (and my random stashes around our apartment) to find my copy of “Orange is the New Black”. As someone who is obsessed with this show, I thought I’d finally read the book – what could be better I thought. So I literally went through hundreds of books before I found it. And then my husband says to me: “We’re still watching the show, do you really want to know what happens?” Couldn’t have said that BEFORE I dug through all of those books?? Usually I read a lot of heavy non-fiction or biographies, but this time I just wanted an easy old favourite. And ya know what? I opened the first tub and it was right on top – hallelujah!
Besides trying to find some down time, I’ve been testing a lot of recipes lately. Some good…..some well let’s just say I wouldn’t have fed it to our dog. We don’t actually have a dog yet, but when I finally convince my husband, we WILL have one….or two. I mean if ya already have one, what’s one more? ;-) Anyhoo, back to our dogless reality. So, I’ve been testing Lemon Cupcake recipes like they’re goin’ out of style. I think at this point I’ve probably tried 5 recipes before I finally adapted one to make the best lemon cupcakes. It’s a good thing I like lemon because I’ve tasted countless cupcakes the past week. I have a feeling I’m going to regret my next dentist appointment with all the sugar I’ve consumed.
