Camden's Cupcakes

I have every intention of posting my Cookie Monday recipe each Monday. But let's face it, most of the time, we bake after dinner, and by that time I'm lucky if I get the kitchen cleaned up before bed. And am I the only one who was completely riveted by the educational gem of a show that is The Bachelorette? Who has time for blogging when you're exercising your brain? So here it is Tuesday...

Yesterday's baking recipe (not exactly cookies) was inspired by Camden. As we shared a bowl of cherry tomatoes for lunch, watching Martha demonstrate her new Triple Citrus Cupcake recipe, Stinky proclaimed:

"OH MY GAAAAWSH, I LOOOVE 'PUPCAKES'!!!!"

And so it was decided. After all, Martha said herself, "See, it only took me 5 minutes to get these in the oven." Wow, Martha, can you please let me know where to get pre-measured ingredients in those cute little bowls (including 9 zested citrus fruits), so that I, too, can make homemade cupcakes in record time?

She had her mixer going, adjusting the speed accordingly, right along with me. I wish my KitchenAid was that color! We made a third of the recipe, yielding 9 cupcakes.

Delicious turnout... but you must really love citrus. Kevin wouldn't go near them. Oh, he loves citrus alright... in the form of mojitos, margaritas, & mimosas, that is. CamCam and I (the only ones still up at this point) prefer ours via yummy cupcakes.

I love that you made 1/3 of a batch. Teaching your children fractions at a young age! That will make my job as a math teacher easier, thank you.
