Perfect Pumpkin Cupcake Recipe for the Fall Season

Autumn Pumpkin Cupcakes

Pumpkin Cupcakes

If I can’t have a pumpkin patch at home, why not have one on my cupcakes?

With the autumn season quickly approaching, I wanted to bake something inspiring. My Cupcakes with Fondant Pumpkins are cute, elegant, and I didn’t even break a sweat making them. When the kiddos came in from playing outside, they spotted them and were immediately drawn to them.

I’ve been having a blast working with fondant. Just like play-dough, fondant allows my imagination and creativity to soar. What kind of fondant pieces would you like to see next on the blog?

Fall is definitely my favorite season, so I can’t wait to make more of these cupcakes!

The Best Cranberry Chicken Thighs Recipe for All Seasons!

Cranberry Chicken Thigh Easy Recipe

Baked Cranberry Chicken Thighs

As a busy mom, I am constantly stocking up on frozen fruits and veggies.  I need my produce to last until the next time I go to the store, however, I also don’t want to lose the quality and taste because I prefer frozen ingredients.  That’s why I have been using Cape Cod Select Cranberries for years, they are delicious in recipes frozen or thawed and eaten alone.  Especially in one of our family favorite baked chicken recipes, my sweet and tangy cranberry chicken thighs recipe.

   I was recently asked to participate in the Cape Cod Select Summer Breeze Recipe Challenge, so I figured this would be the perfect time to share this cranberry chicken recipe with you!  It’s an easy meal that is great all year around.  We eat it outside by the pool on summer nights and around the table on Thanksgiving.
