iVillage Cooking Adventures: Upside-down Cupcakes

Woohoo! Episode 6 is live and it’s dessert time. Listen, if you have any trouble getting your kids to help in the kitchen, make dessert. There was hardly a moment when my kids weren’t all hovered around the kitchen table, volunteering to measure sugar and butter for the chance to lick their fingers. As you’ll see, the three-year-old actually plopped herself on the table itself.

We started off making pineapple upside-down cupcakes and ended up adding so much delicious fruit, they require a new name. These are so good, my oldest son asked for them for his ninth birthday next month. They are so good, we had them for dinner. Yes, we did.
Pineapple Upside Down CupcakesWith this episode, I’ve completed my first season of cooking shows for iVillage and the timing couldn’t be better. No longer in housing limbo, we are packing up and getting ready to move to a new house next month. Know what that means? New season, new kitchen! I’ll have a smaller oven and a completely different stove to get used to, but I can’t wait to continue the fun of cooking with my kids.

By the way, I never heard back from the casting agent regarding the cooking show competition that pits a real home cook against a professional chef. I am, however, in talks with a different casting company about a docu-series that showcases a variety of parenting styles. Will keep you posted.

I hope you enjoy Episode 6, but more importantly, I hope you enjoy these cupcakes!

Thanks! I’m trying not to let that overwhelming feeling creep in…on the bright side, I’m looking forward to the fresh start and exploring our new neighborhood.

Thank you! Will be glad when the moving is behind me, even by a day. If you have nothing against butter, sugar, and flour, you will love these cupcakes.
