Cupcake Confidential

by Meghann on October 25, 2011

I’m famous!

Ok, not really, but it was fun to see mine (and Ashley’s and Elina’s) mugs on the Cooking Channel for approximately 1.5 seconds today. ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, why the 1.5 seconds of fame?

Well, remember the random cameras that were filming a mysterious new cupcake show at the Foodbuzz Festival last year?

Ummm… yeah… I had almost forgot too.

That is, until I saw the buzz pop up on twitter!

Turns out the ‘mysterious new cupcake show’ was actually Cupcake Confidential from The Cooking Channel. The new show (which just premiered Sunday night) followed three cupcake entrepreneurs as they prepped for big events around the country (i.e. Foodbuzz Festival).

The actual footage from the Foodbuzz event was limited, but there was enough to spot a few more of my friends on the big (small) screen.

Now, I’m sad I won’t be attending Foodbuzz again this year! Next year – I’ll try again for next year. ๐Ÿ™‚

My dinner this evening wasn’t exactly cupcake inspired, but it was pretty tasty. The easy crustless quiche was the perfect ‘just-got-home-and-don’t-feel-like-cooking’ meal.

First: the vegetables.

I chopped:

  • 1 onion
  • 3 carrots
  • 4 large mushrooms
  • handful of spinach

And cooked it all until soft with salt, pepper, and oregano.

The vegetables were then dropped in a greased ramekin

Topped with shredded cheese

And covered with a mix of 6 eggs with 1/2 cup of milk

The crustless quiche baked for 40 minutes at 375. ๐Ÿ™‚

We paired the quiche with some spicy hashbrowns and called it dinner. Yum.

Dessert was a Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup.

I wonder if I can talk Justin’s into making Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups. Maybe? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have you ever had 1.5 seconds (or 15 minutes) of fame before? What were you on?

I was in a commercial once that people from my hometown semi-recognized me from. That was fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

Antsy to Run

October 25, 2011

It felt soooo good to run this morning! After 5 days of semi-runs on steep hills and being stuck in a car for 13 hours yesterday, all I wanted to do was get up and run this morning. I’m pretty sure I’ve never gotten up, gotten dressed, or walked out the door as fast as more ยป
