OK. I saw THIS photo yesterday and could NOT get it out of my mind! So i decided to bake again today! I thank Tania from Dulcis in Furno for sharing the recipe and creating such a beautiful product and taking such gorgeous tempting photos!

fresh strawberry cupcakes

My husband and i currently rent a room in a house with a couple of guys in their mid 20's. It's only temporary until i get work and we can afford our own place. They have no idea about cooking, cleaning, laundry....need i go on!! Hehe. So in lieu of some of our rent i do the housework which works out for everyone! But i seriously cannot wait to get a job!! Ugh!

Cleaning out the fridge on a regular, almost daily, basis is one of the fun jobs >.<.
One of the boys mum's left a big bowl of fresh strawberries from her garden...and as a surprise to me they didn't eat them, ok i nicked a couple, i mean who can resist? SO i thought this morning i would salvage the "un mouldy" ones, wash them off, cut them up, drizzle with vanilla and throw them into some cupcake batter. I bet they eat them now!!

lemonade scones

I love Devonshire tea, big fluffy fresh out of the oven scones with fresh whipped cream and homemade strawberry jam! ....a nice hot cuppa tea of course. Mum always made the best scones, and we used to sell them at work, date or spinach and cheese..mmm...a perfect snack or treat!

carrot cake cookies

In my every day perusal of flickr and foodie websites....searching for something new and delicious (trust me i find SO much i don't know where to start!) i always learn new ideas, recipes and techniques and always new flavour combinations! I'm a big fan of carrot cake, hummingbird cake....anything along those lines.
