Thanks to three of my best friends getting married this year and all the bridesmaids dresses I have to squeeze myself into, I have been trying my best to eat healthier lighter foods, pack my lunches for work and work out 4 times a week.

Thanksgiving Cupcakes

For the past several months, I have been slowly increasing my baking skill level. My personal favorite things to bake are cupcakes.  I must have made about 1,000 cupcakes since I started baking. I love decorating them, its another way for me to let out my creativity. My favorite part is when they're done and devoured by my friends and family :) This year for Thanksgiving, I will be making more delicious cupcakes.

So to save time we used a devils food cake mix and milk chocolate frosting from a container. Personally I prefer to use Duncan Hines when I'm using a box mix.

Bonus: they are relatively healthy, too. ...more

Meatloar in Disguise

I just discovered that muffins are not just for breakfast or snacks anymore. I was at Trader Joe’s and saw, in their freezer section, Meatloaf Muffins. Say what! They were cute tiny rounds of meatloaf with a layer of spinach and a dollop of mashed potatoes on top....more
