I got this recipe from I got it for 8 bucks from the half price book store. My copy wasn't used apparently they get new books as well. I was anxious to try something from this cookbook.
In my haste I forgot to put the sour cream and probably added to much water. Dont buy sugar free
preserves , either because it makes a difference my cupcakes looked like a hot mess! I apologize about
last weekI found out at the last moment that my son had two award cermonies and while I was pleasantly surprised I discovered how disorganized I have gotten since I am doing this(blogging) and work with 2 ministries at church. Just because I have the Wonder Woman theme song on my playlist doesn't mean I really
am a superhero. All that to say I will post the linky list this Tuesday, but starting June 211st I will take each
3rd Tuesday off so I can get the time and space I need for my family, friends, church, and those creative dreams that seem to get pushed to the back burner..
This recipe is linked up to Just Something I whipped up,Tempt my Tummy Tuesday
Tuesdays at the Table, and Whatcha Makin' Wed.
About This blog
My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, ....you get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
