I’m in a New York State of Mind

I'm in a New York State of Mind

A look back:  2014 Adventures

A week in New York City in the spring is not a bad way to celebrate 25 years of marriage!  And to be able to celebrate with my amazing husband, who is a man of God, a father of three wonderful daughters, and a faithful friend is not too shabby either!

I was inspired in New York by the city, the people and the wonderful food.  I especially loved trying out a different cupcake every day to determine which shop truly had the best! I told  my husband when I get home, I am going to work on my cupcake skills with my girls and also make my backyard look as beautiful and peaceful as Central Park. I was determined and passionate!

Needless to say, my backyard still looks the same and although I did try a new cupcake recipe from my Magnolia Bakery cookbook, it has been a few lonely months for my cupcake pan!

Here are a few of the places I tried in search of the perfect cupcake! Some I tried a couple of times, just to be sure which one was my favorite—Magnolia Bakery; Sweet Revenge; Sprinkles; Sweet Corner Bake Shop and of course I tried any cupcake that I passed as we were exploring the city.

My vote on the best cupcake in New York City is from SWEET REVENGE in the West Village at 62 Carmine St!  And maybe this spring I can work on my backyard a little as well!!!

  1. Kristy, I am impressed with all you have done, a beatiful job. You have grown into a beautiful young woman with many talents plus the fun of sharing with your daughters. I too am thankful for four daughters, God blessed us richly and with best of spouses to be their fathers. Keep cooking. Everything looks very pretty and good to eat, now I am hungery and need to get into my kitchen and get busy. Today I am especially hungery for Mexican food. I may not have the patience to cook your lovely receipe today
    but will make the faithful enchilladas and we will eat them anyway. You are a remarkable daughter and we are proud you are one of ours. Love to you and happy cooking…mom
