I had the pleasure to spend the evening at a lovely little fundraiser event at a local area school. It is their 2nd year showcasing women entrepeneurs from our community. Above is a couple of quick pics from my iPhone...sorry camera packed for sessions this weekend. It was fun to meet some new ladies and chat with friends. Thanks to all who stopped in!
I told many I would do a quick post with the recipe for my scrummy chocolate cupcakes...according to my hubby they are the best he's ever had!
Here it is:
Quinoa Chocolate Cake (or cupcakes) Gluten free
2 cups of cooked quinoa
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup melted butter
Blend this in blender
Then add to
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
I baked these little cupcakes at 350' for 15 minutes.
My simple yummy icing:
I medium size carton of whip cream, whip this up then add 1/2 carton of cream cheese and about 1 cup icing sugar. Also add 1 tbsp of cornstarch...this help set the whip cream. EAsy and sooo good.
thanks to my lovely sister in law Bronwyn for the great recipe!

I love our office/creative space....makenna has graduated to the big table. Grady prefers to use the floor. But everyone is happy in this space. It was cold and snowy! shocking! and we're happy to be together creating!
***instagram***if you haven't found out about instagram. Its another way to share photos. I've added a sneak peak onto my blog. Usually just everyday photos...but I love! I've also started a daily photo challenge for myself. #mygratefullife
we preach to our kids always about being grateful and remembering the best part of everyday...even the crummy ones. So I thought i'd challenge myself to post a pic daily of what I'm grateful for...check it out and try it for yourself. You will look at things differently.
enjoy your weekend
