Happy 234th Birthday America! Just for your birthday, I made you a special treat...
Since I had these...
I decided to make cupcakes...Red Velvet Cupcakes seemed appropriate.
I decided to try Pioneer Woman's recipe instead of my fav from Southern Living. Yummy...
Last night after making them, I was involved in a text message conversation with my friend Lisa. We were reporting on what we had accomplished over the course of the last two days. I reported on making Red Velvet Cupcakes, and if you know me, you know that I made them from scratch, no mix involved. Since Lisa knows me so well, there was no need to specify.
Lisa responds saying, "I have to make cookies in the morning for Cathy's house."
I text back: And by "make cookies" you mean take out of package and cook?
She answers: "Duh"
So whatever sweet treats you are having today, have a Happy 4th and be careful with the fireworks!
