Cupcakes and a blogpost I read…..

Welp, I recently (like, 10 minutes ago) read a fellow blogger’s post that said – Cooking Is Therapy. First some credit, and then onto some cupcakes.

If you get a chance, I strongly urge anyone reading this to check out Clan and Pad’s blog. There is all kinds of fantastic recipes, cute crafts, and great reading.

I don’t know why this never occurred to me. I do 99.98% of the cooking in my house, and I absolutely adore baking in my spare time. Cooking does a few different things for me… I am like an old Ukrainian woman; if you come to my house – you will be fed. If I don’t feed you, I don’t love you. That really doesn’t apply to anyone that comes to my house, with possibly the exception of the neighbour’s cat, and even then Sass would get fed until he started feeling territorial over me and tried to spray my leg. We had to have the ‘I-am-not-your-property-and-if-my-husband-isn’t-allowed-to-do-that-to-my-leg-you-sure-as-heck-aren’t-mister’ talk…. Also, cooking is a focus for me. There are so many things that have ¬†limited me due to my health that cooking is one of the few things I can still do when I am feeling well. It gives me a purpose.

Baking is definitely where my heart is. I absolutely love it! With summer in full swing (much to my Mom’s delight) I have had access to delicious strawberries and consequently been near constantly keeping the house in good supply of angel food cake with juicy strawberries and fresh whipped cream.

I didn’t snap any pictures of the angel food cake, but here are some cutesy cupcakes I made before for no real apparent reason other than it looked too cute not to try.

Unfortunately, part of the MS testing is because despite previously being a “the hotter the better” kind of gal, I have developed a very sudden intolerance for heat. In the summer, this has turned into quite the issue – especially in relation to cooking in 30oC weather. I haven’t figured out a way around that one, yet…. but I’m working on it.
