Cupcakes for my love

68/365 How to be a domestic goddess.
{via my 365 project}

In honor of J’s birthday – which is today! Hooray! – I unleashed my domestic goddess. I prepared a little birthday table for him this morning and baked some cupcakes (from this book!) yesterday.

Actually, they’re muffins. J – who doesn’t have a sweet tooth at all (can you believe it?!) – doesn’t like cupcakes, what with all the frosting and sugar overload, but he loves the much-less-sweet blueberry muffins.

A good friend gave me this cook bake book for my birthday and I’ve been meaning to try some of the delicious-sounding recipes for months now. Thank goodness (no pun intended) that there was a blueberry muffin recipe in the book that I could try!

It was interesting, because the recipe called for buttermilk (or yogurt) and only one egg. That was kind of unusual. They look, smell (and taste! – you don’t think I would give them to J without tasting them first, do you?) delicious though, so I am hoping that they are as much a success with J as they were with me.

Unfortunately, I’ll have to work all day, but tonight we’ll go out for a nice birthday dinner and I can’t wait to give him the presents and mail that I’ve been hiding from him for the last week.

  1. Ok – now I’m craving muffins – thanks a lot ;) lol They look yum!

  7. It’s not easy being a domestic goddess, but it’s so worth it, lol. Those cupcakes look wonderful! I know what you mean about odd ingredients. I just made muffins from scratch and the recipe called for sour cream, which seemed weird but made them even more moist and delicious!

  18. Happy birthday to J!!

    Oddly, this is the second time I’ve seen someone call blueberry muffins cupcakes in the last week. Must be because cupcakes just sound more sinful.
