Whenever a boy comes over, you should always have something baking

Thankfully, I'm a slightly better baker than Cher! No burnt rolled up cookie dough in our house!

The hubs came home this weekend after a two week business trip to Fort Polk, LA. Yay, you're jealous, I know. Have no fear, the only souvenir he brought me was a 50 caliber shell he "found" laying on the side of the road. Such a romantic guy I have.

Anyway, in keeping with my baking trend I decided to whip up Pumpkin Cupcakes for his return. I was at Trader Joe's and their canned pumpkins were just calling to me! Like a dutiful wife, I baked fresh cupcakes, drove to the airport, picked up coffee, and circled the joint until the hubs and his brother had made it through baggage claim.

Oh yeah, I don't know if I've ever mentioned this before, but my brother-in-law works with my hubs. Actually, let me clarify that a bit. The hubs is my brother-in-law's supervisor. So yes, the hubs has power over his "big brother" at work. It's not a situation I would openly recommend to others. It's certainly provided a few awkward moments over the past 22 months.

The recipe is courtesy of the lovely Martha Stewart. Head on over here if you want to give them a try.

ETA: Blogger is driving me crazy and won't let me add a picture!!! Grr.
