    The teensy amount of frosting on that cupcake is a crime haha!

    First cupcakes are not cupcakes w/o frosting.

    Second I LOVE fresh herbs and have NO idea why I don’t have a plant yet probably because I forget about it. Thanks for bringing it back to my attention. 🙂

    I still need to try that cornbread it looks soo delicious!

    a cupcake is not a cupcake without it’s lower body being matched by an equal or greater amount of icing. amen.

    I can never keep plants alive! I’ve bought about 5 basil plants in the past year, kept them in different locations and watered each one a little different and they all die! Ahh!

    I hope yours fares better than mine have

      I have no plans of keeping this one alive very long. My plant is to eat all the delicious leaves off of the plant and toss it.

    Are you going to the Maryland game?!?! This is sadly my last FSU game as a student. 🙁

    The cupcake and the pumpkin bread look so good! Yay yummy carbs!

    My roommate and I kept our basil alive for a good 8 months or so before the summer came and we couldn’t water it fast enough. If it turns yellowish and sickly looking, you’re watering too much – but if the soil is too dry, it needs more water. That’s about all I learned while keeping the basil. Oregano (and mint, I recommend getting that one!) on the other hand are pretty hearty!

    Love fresh herbs — they add a little something extra. My favorite is fresh cilantro sprinkled onto a salad or on a sandwich. A delicious zing. 😀

    Pumpkin cornbread! That’s so unique!

    I’ve never had good luck with herb plants – but for $1 I would have definitely snatched them up too! I’ve seen bunches of herbs at my farmer’s market for $1-$2 before, but never as potted plants (then they’re always marked at $5). Nice!

    Fresh herbs are by far the best. My basil plant died 🙁 But my stevia plant is flourishing!

    I seriously love fresh herbs, but they always go bad before I can use them all. Plus they are expensive!

    I love fresh herbs, but I usually don’t eat them fast enough! The highlight of my new apartment is that I will have the ability to garden… I’m hoping to grow some fresh herbs.

    Can’t decide which looks better- the carrot cake cupcake or the veggies with marinara! I guess they fulfill different needs, right? 🙂

    I love fresh herbs over dry herbs. It makes all the flavors pop! That muffin looks delish

    I love fresh herbs! Of course, it doesn’t hurt that they smell delicious all on their own!

    I love fresh herbs too! You’re making me miss my herb garden I have back home in Alabama…

    Fresh herbs are the best. I love the freshness they add to anything you put them in.

    I love fresh herbs! So much better than dried! I have bad luck with keeping them alive in the house too!

    That’s awesome you found those plants for so cheap!! I tried to grow herbs once and failed miserably. My thumb isn’t even a slight shade of green…

    Sorry to say this, but I don’t like icing!! A little bit is okay, but otherwise it’s just too much sugar for me. What people really need to start doing is icing cupcakes with plain peanut butter 😉 Now THAT would be good!

    Sorry to be that person, but your title for the post has an alternative/funny meaning.
