Cupcakes, Anyone?

Bela and I had some ideas for cupcake flavors after we tried the White Zombie coffee drink in Broken Bow Friday.  We tried three new flavors: White Zombie (white chocolate and peanut butter chips), Captain Sparrow (cherry and rum), and the one Bela calls Hallelujah (peanut butter and coconut).

We went to several willing taste testers and the clear winner of the night was the Captain Sparrow.

Try the World

I’m always searching for cool things to try, so my first adventure (for Bela) was LootCrate.  My friend, Lisa, was telling me how cool it was, so we tried it.

I stumbled upon the Try the World boxes recently, and when I got the “buy the Japan box, get the Paris box free,” I figured it was as good a time as any to give Try the World a shot.  Our box of food came today!  It was heavier than I had anticipated, but I took it home joyfully.

Our lavender honey had leaked a bit in the Paris box, but the seal was intact.

The Paris box had some neat items.
