The cupcake craze

October 13th, 2007

Since I started thinking about writing my blog I have been reading more and more food blogs.  I noticed a strange trend, cupcakes are everywhere!  These aren’t your regular supermarket dry, sugar-high cupcakes either.  Okay, so maybe I’m a little behind on the times.  Cupcake blogs are everywhere: here, here and here.  I visited a friend in San Francisco last spring and she mentioned a bakery around the corner from her that sold nothing but cupcakes.  I had never heard of such a thing.  “How cool!” I thought.

Cupcakes!

All the varieties, decorations, and flavors are enough to make a food-loving, sugar-craving guy like me go crazy!  Well, I am not here to start another cupcake blog, but boy have they made me hungry for cupcakes.  I’ve been doing my research over the past few days (hence no recent blog entries) but I wanted to write today to ask for more ideas and to let you know I’m going to try a pumpkin cupcake recipe soon (with a secret and special topping)!  I hope it turns out good and that you’ll enjoy reading about it.

Let’s get started…

October 10th, 2007

My [beautiful, loving, faithful] wife and I have been talking for a while about all the yummy things I love to cook. One conversation led to another and we decided I should create one of those food blogs we always enjoy reading. So here I am, typing into this little blog window. I hope that I can share a little bit of my love for food and cooking with you.

You might be wondering: “Why did he choose ‘making banana pancakes’ as a title?” Well, let me share! A few weekends ago we purchased the album “In Between Dreams” by “Jack Johnson.”

Track #3 is a wonderful song called “Banana Pancakes,” and one of the lines contains the phrase “making banana pancakes.” That weekend I decided to make my beautiful wife Banana Pancakes for breakfast. This was around the time we decided I should create my blog. Here I go. My next post will be my first recipe, from a little earlier today.

Thanks for reading!

Keith
