Tie-Dye Cupcakes

You know we only tell you about easy recipes... Well, here's how to make an easy tie-dye cupcake.  My daughter made these while I was out of town this weekend.  I must admit, they are very cute and tasty.  Below is an easy "in your back pocket-type" recipe.  (you know, the ones with visuals... from a great site,   Can you stay for Dinner.)

Step 1:
Make batter for favorite vanilla cupcakes. Divide batter into four bowls.

Step 2:
Tint each bowl w/a few drops of food coloring.  Incorporate the colors in as few "stirs" as possible, don't "overstir"...bad for texture- i read that somewhere.  

Step 3:
Drop spoonfuls of each colored batter into cupcake liners until 3/4 full.

Step 4:
When all are filled- use toothpick to swirl batter a few times.  Use diff. toothpick for each one and don't over-swirl or they'll turn kind of brown. 

Step 5:
Bake according to recipe!

Hers came out like this.

Thanks "Can You Stay For Dinner!"

Always loved a basic denim shirt or jacket.   Especially love it with a little  fancy...

So What Wednesday...

Hope you're having a good week.  Here's what I'm saying "so what? " to today...

SO WHAT? if:

  • I ate all the fries before I even got home.

  • At our house we tryout a pencil or pen and if it doesn't work, we put it right back in the holder. 

  • My Big Bad Husband (BBH) rearranges the dishwasher EVERY time I load it.  He can't help himself...

  • After I tried to "strongly suggest" where my college son should place his new T.V.- room furniture, I got this response:
     "Um, that's not gonna happen"...
     "Well, why not?" I replied, dumbfounded....
     His response,  " cuz there won't be any room for the Beer Pong table."

     Stupid me..

What are you saying So What? to...

Try works.
