Cupcakes and Cooking

Cupcake #1: Eggs2Go
In the bottom of a muffin pan, put cooked sausage (or any other meat). In a bowl, mix eggs (or just egg whites if you want), cheese, green chili, tomato or anything else that suits your fancy. Then pour the egg mixture in the muffin pan and bake for a bit. Yum! They are easy on the go, taste good hot or cold, and have potential for a kabillion variations.
Cupcake #2: PB&J Cupcakes
Bake regular butter recipe cupcakes. Cut the cupcakes in half and insert a layer of jelly (any flavor!). The frosting is peanut butter, powdered sugar, and cream. I made them to take to a picnic tomorrow...they are ugly as can be, but I'm hopeful they'll be a hit with the kids there!
Some words of wisdom from Julia Child's Memoir, "My Life in France":
"I tried to structure every recipe as a class. And the great lesson embedded in the book is that no one is born a great cook, one learns by doing. This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook---try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun!"

And my personal favorite from her, after she recounts her very first meal in France that ignited her passion for French cooking:
"In all the years since that succulent meal, I have yet to lose the feelings of wonder and excitement that it inspired in me. I can still almost taste it! And thinking back on it now reminds me that the pleasures of the table, and of life, are infinite---toujours bon appetit!"
Perhaps I should hurry and conquer cooking so I can take photography lessons, huh? :)
