First things first, I spent all of yesterday afternoon watching Mockingjay. I had heard pretty horrible things about it and perhaps my standards are low because I watch 3 movies a year but I kind of loved it. Like, I read the books several times so I knew what was happening but I was on the edge of my
seat bed for most of it.
Also, yes, I am a sucker. I bought it on digital because I had to watch it RIGHT THEN and then I’ll buy it again when it comes out on DVD. Even though I’ll probably never watch it again.
This is how I work.
Anyway, today is not about me wasting money. Today is about a cookbook that I’d like to give away!
The cookbook is filled with classic and not-so-classic recipes that have been scaled down to only serve 2 (or sometimes 4) people. Like, this cupcake recipe? Only makes 4 cupcakes! Which means I had one for me and all 3 kids and there were none left to call my name while I watched my money-waster movie.
I think it’s a genius idea and I really wish someone had pointed me in the direction of small batch desserts when I went through that mug cake phase last year. Because those things are awful.
I have a long list of things I want to make from Dessert for Two and I started with these Red Velvet Cupcakes because, well, it’s always a good time for a cupcake. They turned out delicious and like I mentioned, I really loved that there was just enough for me and the kids without having extras to deal with.
