Savory Cupcakes

My neighbor and I were talking about food on the bus stop last week and he was raving about his wife's "chicken pot pie cupcakes."  Well, I couldn't stop thinking about them even a day or so afterwards so off to Pinterest I went!  Turns out they're pretty easy:  some veggies, cooked chicken, canned biscuit mix and cream of chicken soup.

They came out a little brown but were still good.

Will was a bit disappointed to look at the menu board and see cupcakes, but have them be chicken pot pie cupcakes.  He was amused at this though, so points for that!

Oh, and if you are interested, here is a link to the recipe that I used.  It's from a blog called "Cupcake Fanatic.

Pi Day!

For the last two years we've joined geeks around the world and celebrated Pi Day.  Pi Day is March 14th, or Pi 3.14.

This year's Pi Day almost didn't happen, until Brian whipped up some apple hand pies.  We had leftover phyllo dough in the fridge and it made for a pretty good crust.  They didn't last long.

To add to our celebration:  pound cake.  Will adores pound cake, and he and Brian made this one together.  It was a strange recipe--you put it in a cold oven and turn it on.  Came out nicely so I guess it's a keeper!
