This week we are featuring our Cookies n' Creme Cupcake!
This is one of my favorite cupcakes to make; it reminds me of my sis because she loves cookies n' creme flavoured ice cream. It is perfect for children's parties, instead of the regular chocolate and vanilla.
It's a fluffy vanilla cupcake studded with cookie chunks and topped with vanilla buttercream. Its then sprinkled with more cookie crumbles and topped with half a cookie or a mini cookie.
If you like Cookies n' creme ice cream or even Oreos, I think you would love this!
Have a great week guys!

I think we have had some of the nicest brides. Earlier this year we featured a bride who got breakfast baskets for her bridal party as a treat.
Today we want to show you what another bride got as a thank you for some people who helped her with her wedding. It really is a wonderful gesture, saying thank you with a little something extra. Even a phone call back or a thank you note makes a difference. I know it makes my day.
So here goes:
Check out the cute dessert basket she got them, I would be so excited to get this at work.
Here's a close up of the cookies, the curd was made from those yummy passion fruits
we got from the farmers market.
Just wanted to share these goodies with you. I hope you'll take the time to tell someone thank you today.

Food Buddies! What's going on?
I hope you took advantage of the long weekend and made some yummy food.
In our last post we shared a tip on avocados and some of you requested the recipe for our guacamole as it was promised in the video clip so here goes.
BD's Guacamole1 cup diced avocado
1tbsp chopped onion
1-2 tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp diced jalapeno
2ozs diced tomato or 8 cherry tomatoes quartered
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
Salt & pepper to taste
We like our guacamole chunky so instead of blitzing it in a food processor, we gently mash it with a whisk. When it reaches a creamy but slightly chunky consistency we add in the other ingredients and season to taste.
Don't be fooled by this fabulous dip. Its uses are far more than a chip accompaniment or taco topper.
Here are some ideas:Dollop some on a cold soup like cucumber soup or gazpacho
Add it to your favorite salad
It is great in sushi
And fabulous on burgers
Check it out here on a mini burger from an event last week..
I hope you will give this recipe a go. It's one of our favorites.
And feel free to let us know any recipes you would like to see featured here.
