Last night I had a dream that I went to the interview that I have today (in about an hour actually) and all we did was sit in the conference room and eat cupcakes. It was the best interview ever! I hope it was a premonition of what’s going to happen today :)

Seattle is still struggling to find summer—it’s rainy one minute, sunny the next. JUST BE SUMMER, ALREADY! Maybe if we all bake the rain into a cake, though, it’ll finally go away. Worth a shot, right? Get the easy instructions here! (I’ve also heard of folks making these for wedding and baby showers, which is a fantastic idea. You people are smart.)

I love these! Perfect rainy day activity :)

In honor of Boyfriend’s birthday and for the many Memorial Day BBQ’s this weekend, I decided to make some Cookies and Cream cupcakes. These are super tasty and super easy to make, plus everyone is really impressed when they eat them.

What you need:

  • One package of white cake mix (and whatever ingredients that requires, which is usually eggs, and vegetable oil).
  • 1 cup of coarsely crushed Oreo’s
  • 24 Oreo halves
  • Frosting (I use a whipped cream cheese frosting)

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cupcake tin with paper cups.
  2. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Fold in the crushed Oreo bits. Place an Oreo half in the bottom of each paper cup, cream side up.
  3. Spoon batter (I use an ice cream scoop) into paper cups, filling them about 3/4 of the way.
  4. Bake according to directions. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and allow to cool completely.
  5. Frost cupcakes. Crush about 6-10 more cookies and add crushed bits to the top.
  6. ENJOY!

What I did Easter weekend: Painted my nails Tiffany Blue and made Ina Garten’s coconut cupcakes. Although next time, I’m definitely cutting back on the almond in that recipe because it was like all almond, very little coconut.
