Sliced fresh small strawberris ,  if desired

2.In a large bowl, mix cake mix, sour cream oil water and eggs with spoon until well blended(batter will be thick.)  Divide batter evenly amon muffin cups (about2/3 full).

3. In small bowl, stir preserves until smooth.  Place 1 piece of cream cheese on top ofe each cupcake, press into batter slightly.  Spoon1/4 measuring teaspoon preserves on top of cream cheese in each cupcake.
4.  Bake 18 to 23 minutes or until  tops are golden brown and spring back when lightly touched in center(some preserves may show in topos of cupcakes.)  Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

5. Frost cupcakes with frosting.  Just before serving, garnish each cupcake with strawberry slices.  Store covered in refrigerator.

I got this recipe fromBetty Crocker Fix-with-a-Mix Desserts  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..

My cookbook addiction

Hello my name is Cheryl and I'm addicted to really ,practical cookbooks! Yes I just posted on another Weight Watchers cookbook. I have no interest in the point system none whatsoever. This little factoid is how you know I just love buying, collecting and maintaining an extensive cook book collection. I only paid the $2.00 plus shipping and handling and got a real bargain!

I wish I had started with this and the One pot cookbook back in 2012 when I had the health scare this would have made eating healthy a whole lot simpler. I will be looking over both so I…
