I have been obsessed with cupcakes recently. Must be all the shows I have been watching (Cupcake Wars, DC Cupcakes, Cupcake Girls). The other night at 9pm I just had to make cupcakes. Someone at work brought in a huge zucchini fresh from their garden. I took it home and searched for my mom’s zucchini bread recipe. But instead of loaves I made zucchini cupcakes with a maple cream cheese frosting. Of course I used my dad’s homemade maple syrup for the frosting. And since I didn’t have enough sugar on hand for the recipe, I subbed in the maple syrup in the cupcakes too. They turned out sooo yummy. I took them to the office the next day and tested them out on my guinea pigs…I mean coworkers. Everyone loved them.
Welcome to The Tart Tart, my not-so-tart take on food, writing, and photography. I decided to start up this sucker after repeated nagging from Chris, my fiance, who cannot understand why the sight of a farmer’s market would send me into ecstatic convulsions (okay, total overstatement. I can be quite the histrionic at times).With that said, my interests, though chiefly in food, also span fashion, design, literature, and photography. So don’t mind the seemingly non sequitur odds and ends I toss in posts at times.
