Fairy Cupcakes : Sugared flowers

fairycupcakefrontOur school has a bake sale tomorrow, and I’m making some fairy cupcakes for the sale. Hopefully they will be success for both fairies and parents. I’m using edible flowers as décor on lemon cupcakes. In this recipe I’m using pansies but nasturtiums and violets will also work.

In season: Playful artichokes

artichoke3I’m not going to lie, I did not grow up with artichokes; it wasn’t a common sight at the grocery store in Norway. My first introduction was when I went to culinary school; I learned how to cook them and the art of eating them like a pro.

Fiddleheads

motherAll I want for Mother Day’s is sunshine, happy kids and my husband. Well, if I were totally honest, it would be nice if the kids and my husband would make a picnic for Mother’s Day. What he chooses is all the same to me, but he and the kids have a few of recipes to choose from on activekidsclub.com.
