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.

Halloween Cupcakes

Halloween is probably my favorite holiday of the year. I love dressing up and especially baking festive desserts! Today, we decided to frost some cupcakes to munch on during our carving get-together tomorrow night. The cupcakes are a standard diet coke cake recipe with a triple chocolate cake mix, and the frosting is as follows:

  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter (do not substitute margarine)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • food coloring

Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl. Mix on low speed until combined, then turn to high until light and fluffy. Scrape bowl often. If frosting is too thick, add milk in 1 tsp increments and beat, until desired consistency.
