I have some exciting news!
Well, first of all, these Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes might be the best cupcakes that I’ve ever made…like…ever—more on that in a minute.
Second of all, I’m teaming up with with an awesome food and recipe site called Food Fanatic, where I will share 2 fantastic recipes a month—like these cupcakes! The site is comprised of a big ol’ team of talented bloggers, with their own fabulous food blogs, who each specialize in a special type of recipe over on Food Fanatic. Guess what my specialty is? Dessert 😀 Yep I’m a “Dessert Fanatic.” Of course I’m beyond excited about that, because you guys know how much I loooove baking! I’ve got a lot of cool stuff coming up over there, so keep your eyes peeled because this is only the beginning!
A little about these cupcakes (though you can find even more about them, and see more photos, over on my post on Food Fanatic!), they are so fluffy it’s kinda unbelievable. They also are hiding a secret core of strawberry preserves, and are topped with the most incredible peanut butter buttercream frosting along with a nice drizzle of even more strawberry preserves. And, naturally, I had to include sprinkles, because sprinkles make the world a happier place!
Also, just in case anyone was curious, my sinus surgery went well, yesterday. I’m still recovering (and there is still a lot of bleeding UGH), but hopefully everything is all taken care of, now. Though, I was told that the polyp might now have been fully removed since it was so large and up by my eye, so that’s kinda uncool. EVEN WORSE, you know how I’m afraid of needles? My mom made sure to call ahead and tell them, so they were very well aware of the situation, and assured her that they do this all the time and it would be super quick. Well, the nurse missed the vein in my hand, and spent a good couple of minutes wiggling the IV around in there before twisting it out and having to go for the vein in my arm. Naturally, I was freaking the heck out and hyperventilating, so they had to put me on pure oxygen. Fear of needles NOT overcome.
