Delicious S'mores Cupcakes

My kids were looking for something to get excited about for the 4th of July. Something different. Something chocolately. These S'mores cupcakes sure did the trick. And the best part is: they are quick and easy, and used a combination of mix and from scratch. To add some red, white and blue to the theme I used some paper straws in patriotic colors. But if you wanted to do this for a birthday or any special day you could vary up the straw color and have a S'more's cupcake that's perfect for any occasion. What you'll need: Ingredients for Graham Cracker Crumbs (for the bottom of the cupcake): 10 Graham Crackers 1 half stick of butter 2 teaspoons of cinnamon 1/2...

For my kids, it's the moist, cinnamon vanilla tasting cake.       I was thrilled to recently come across a crumb cake recipe on www.food.com that's super easy and delicious too. And it has an unexpected ingredient that I swear made the crumble topping so much sweeter--pancake mix. This recipe can be made as a cake, but I decided to make muffins out of them instead since my kids love having their own individual ones.     Crumb cake muffins go great with sliced fruit, like strawberries, and a little fresh whipped cream.

A Visit to Magnolia Table...

Chip says “Come and Get it” on a huge sign right in front of the Magnolia Table. So we did. And, boy, it was worth it. You can’t miss the Spanish-style restaurant right off Interstate 35, or the signature lines that come with visiting a Magnolia property.My husband's eyes nearly bulged from his head. It was his first time witnessing the Magnolia frenzy. We arrived at 11 a.m. and there was already a 2.5-hour wait ahead of us. This was on a Wednesday, folks. So plan ahead if you think you want to go on the weekend. The line zigzagged all around the restaurant and the parking lot in front was jampacked. We luckily found a spot down the road a...
