pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese icing won over at least one reader, because Anika immediately requested I make them for her shower. (Well, I kept asking her what kind of cupcakes she wanted, she didn't just demand them out of the blue.) If you want the all-over-sprinkles look, pour some sprinkles into a bowl, dip the cupcake in, and voila! The sprinkles stay on really well this way because they are somewhat pressed into the icing. And it makes you look like a professional. Win-win, people.
Next up, broccoli salad, though this one had beef bacon. I had never had beef bacon before, and I plan on never having it again. While it looks like bacon, it tastes very little like bacon (more like jerky).
One thing that didn't managed to get photographed were the mini frittatas. I might have to make them again soon, because, people, these adorable bites were delicious. Next time I throw a party, these suckers will be there. Easy, healthy, and delicious? Who knew that could be possible with party food.
