Fancy Cupcakes

I don't think I have posted any food for a long time. 

I am a huge fan of the book Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. It has changed the way that I look at baking. From the first time I opened it I wanted to make The Pistachio Rosewater Cupcakes. Today I finally did. They are tasty. They feel very upscale. They are also dead simple, which is always a winner for me.

Sun Finally.

The weather finally turned nice. Which meant this weekend was full of time in the yard, cleaning up to make it usable. 
And what a difference a weekend makes.
I found several chairs on line for a steal. But they needed some care. I also found an end table for next to nothing, but it was very dated as well. 

So, primer and paint later, I have seating for the sunken part of the yard. That is about all I have for you now.
The kids got to paint their own chairs.
