I am literally watching the coffee drip……drip……drip…..into my mug this morning. (Actually, I think I do that every morning.) I’m a silly girl who stays up to the crack ass of dawn, even though I know that my 8-month old will be up by 730 every morning. Why do I torture myself do you ask? Well because, I’m Alaina, and I’m a TV Junkie. Its bad..I shouldnt even tell you how many shows record on my DVR between Sunday and Thursday..its embarrassing…(14ish shows + my eight-hour SVU marathon that gets recorded every Tuesday + any movies my lovely fiance wants to watch with me….I told you it was bad.) And since I have a little babe, I obviously can’t watch it like I used to..and I refuse to give up all my fav shows just because I don’t have time like I used to..(call me selfish) so yes, I torture myself staying up to catching up on everything and then wait
very impatiently patiently while the coffee brews.
Anyhoo..as you can tell by the Patriots colors, I made these for the Superbowl, but you can add red food coloring to make them pink for Valentines Day, or purple food coloring and make them for Easter! This is my GO TO Vanilla Cupcake Recipe! I LOOVE them! The almond extract gives it such a great flavor and the buttermilk makes them nice and moist. They’re so fluffy and so delicious! They always dome perfectly and taste incredible!!
I brought these out for the Superbowl party and they were gooone…its been everything in my power not to make them again the last couple days…my only saving grace has been the full package of double stuffed Oreos..(that is no longer a full package) and I guess when you think about it, not really a saving grace, because those aren’t good for me either! Well…we all have our vices..double stuffed Oreos dipped in peanut butter are mine..if you recall, I told you once that I probably ate a package every two days while pregnant…yah, we don’t talk about that anymore! ha! This is the first time I’ve had them in the house since…(you can see why!) But I digress…
Make these cupcakes, they’re sooo good! Add red coloring, because I’m dying to make some pink ones for V-day! And upload the picture to my Facebook page!! 🙂
