FOODIE ALERT: BREAKFAST CUPCAKES

On Saturday, I woke up with a craving. A craving for something new.

Then, it hit me.

I’d been holding off on trying a fun, creative way of having breakfast that I was inspired by on Instagram of all places.

Breakfast cupcakes.

Cupcakes? How could cupcakes be a part of breakfast? They are anything but!

Do not lose yourself in a dark world of hysteria trying to figure this out, for I have the answer ready for you because it is possible.

Aren’t they just beautiful? 😀

All you need are eggs, baconcheese (shredded)hashbrown (optional), and peppers (optional).

I chose to use bacon, peppers, and shredded cheese for mine. Mainly because I didn’t have hashbrown available so I’ll definitely make another post for that one.

And so it begins…

I made 12 cupcakes for 6 people; 2 cupcakes a person. Thankfully, the tray already has 12 molds.

Image

The instructions are simple:

Heat oven to 400°F

Place foil liner in each of 12 molds and spray with generous amount of cooking spray

12 Eggs (or as many as you think you’d need – 1 per person is suffice)

(Mix in a bowl and add a little bit of milk for extra fluff)

Cook bacon

(I recommend doing this first to save time) I used 6 pieces of bacon to get enough for each person and shredded it once the strips were cooked. Just pull it apart in little pieces with your hands.

Peppers

I used red, yellow, and orange peppers by cutting them into small pieces.

Once those two parts were completed, the bacon, cheese, and peppers were dumped into the bowl and mixed with the eggs.

Afterwards, the mix was poured into the cupcake molds making sure that there was enough in each mold. There was nothing left over in the bowl so as stated above, 1 egg per person is perfect for this.

Once this is done, the next step is simple: Bake!

Image

Let it bake for about 13 to 16 minutes. To be extra sure that they are done, just use a knife and insert into center of cupcake. If the knife comes out clean they are ready!

Image

The recipe I had tried recommended Siracha sauce to pair with the cupcakes and I just so happened to have some at home. I liked it!

There you have it! Simple and deliciously creative Breakfast Cupcakes! If you have kids at home, they’ll love this fun twist on a traditional American breakfast. You don’t need to have children to enjoy these yourself though!

As always,

oxoxo ❤

BIRTHDAY TREATS & FRIENDS

ImageSo I come home after work and my friend is just sitting on my couch, eating noodles and watching anime like she owns the place.

Comfortable, much?

ImageI head upstairs and decide that I’m going to jump back into my workout routine. Getting back into the jist of things wasn’t as hard as I expected it to be. Actually, I enjoy working out but I wasn’t feeling all that well for the last few days.

I pulled out my ladybug yoga mat that I love so much and did some stretching. Then I watched my favorite workout videos on YouTube (I don’t know what dvd is worth buying so I stick to YouTube for now, lol) and started to pump it! XD

After the main workout I still had some energy left in me so I decided to look up some Zumba videos. Now I’m addicted!

I probably looked like this the whole time:

Not really. It was more like:

Boss status.

This is just disturbing.

Anyway, I did my thing and then I went downstairs to a nice surprise.

A friend of ours stopped by and brought belated birthday goodies!

Thanks @peepmykicks_!!

Can’t go wrong with that!

Then, another friend walks in and she plops this on the table:

How could you?

It’s safe to say, I didn’t eat any last night. Yeah, I’m proud.

BUT, that doesn’t mean tonight I won’t have a go.

Can’t wait to head home!

Oh, almost forgot. I got myself a nice little treat for my day of birth as well.

Until! oxox

Pumpkin Carving!!

ImageI came home one day to find a bunch of pumpkins on the dining table. That meant it’s pumpkin carving tiiiime! A few days later, we did exactly that.
Image

I’d never carved a pumpkin before. The most I’ve done was paint them, which was still fun, but carving them was definitely a new experience that I’m glad I was there to have. It just isn’t October and definitely not Halloween if there aren’t carved pumpkins around.

ImageSomebody was trying to get in on the fun too.

ImageMmmm, looks tasty.

ImageThis was the first pumpkin and it turned out great!

ImageBy the way, the inside of a pumpkin looks kinda gross. lol

Imageewwww

Time for round two!!

ImageImageImageImageThe mouth looked like the Wu-Tang logo to me. After we drew the face on it though it looked like an orange bat. lol

Image

We got pretty hungry after all that carving and had an amaaazing dinner courtesy of the beau’s BBQ skills. Yum!

This is random but while everyone was outside I took a beautiful shot of the moon. I can’t believe my camera zoomed in so well.

ImageSo pretty. ❤

I love our pumpkins and I hope you did too, pumpkin! 😉 oxoxoxox

Football Sunday (Oct. 6th)

“Sunday Morning” by Maroon 5, that’s what I felt like listening to when I woke up last Sunday. Yeah, it’s a little late, but better late than never. I won’t be enjoying a “Football Sunday” this Sunday because of New … Continue reading

Home Sweet Home

I love having a “pata caliente” as I used to hear growing up. It literally translates to “hot foot/leg” but is meant to say that the person being referred to as having that likes to go out a lot (the … Continue reading
