I am a newlywed on a budget, just trying to make healthy and inexpensive meals for my husband and I to enjoy. He eats a lot, so cost is a big factor. Though I work 3 jobs, I manage to find time 6 nights a week to cook a full dinner for us both. I am constantly looking for new recipes that are moderately healthy, taste great, and won't break the bank.

On the side, I also own a brownie business called Gersheybars. My passion and love for cooking started when I was just a small child, baking with my mom and grandmother. The brownie recipe has been passed down through 5 generations and I am thrilled to finally have an outlet to share them with everybody else. Friends and family have helped spread the word and made my business as successful as it is today.

Diet Coke Cupcakes

So I finally decided to try the Diet Coke Cupcakes -- apparently, it's a WW recipe and has become quite popular, even with those not on a WW diet. These came out incredibly soft and fluffy. They definitely don't taste like a typical box mix cake.

  • 1 box of triple chocolate cake mix
  • 12 ounces diet coke
  • 1 large egg white

1. Beat on low for 2 minutes until ingredients are fully combined. Scoop batter into muffin cups, about 2/3 to the top. Bake at 350 for 18 minutes. Cool completely, then cover with your favorite frosting!

This picture is before they were frosted.

Frosted with a nice thin layer of Grandma's Chocolate Frosting.
