i'm becoming obsessed.

So... I think I'm officially becoming obsessed... with cupcakes! I love to make them... not even eat them! After my huge fail yesterday, I thought I needed to pick myself up and TRY AGAIN! Okay... it really wasn't THAT dramatic. Today I decided to make Mint Chocolate Oreo cupcakes. I cheated today though... used a box... They were still very good (I had a bite of Tony's). I think my favorite part was the frosting, it was the perfect consistency. 

Those are Mint Oreos on top. Yesterday when I made the French Toast cupcakes I cooked them a little bit too long. The edges got a little too crispy... Today's cupcakes were much better. Got the baking time down right!

They were pretty huge too! I probably filled them up ALMOST too far but they look great! I didn't have green food coloring and I WAS NOT going to go to the store again so I took some of the frosting out from the Mint Oreos and just put it in with the frosting when I was mixing it up. It didn't get very green at all, but it was definitely tinted though!

And the final product...

I thought they turned out pretty cute!

Today, I went to the Dollar Store (to replace my cupcake pans from yesterday... ugh...) and found some nice baskets. I decided to give my refrigerator a little make-over. 



Makes it just a little easier to see what I all have. I always have food that gets shoved way in the back. I also noticed that I really have NO food and need to go grocery shopping. YIKES! I saw this on Pinterest and figured I could start with some easy organization (and cheap!). They would also be really easy to clean as well, just throw them in the dishwasher! 

What are some organization tips you have?!


  1. Don't judge. I had the mint oreo cupcake for breakfast and it was DIVINE!

  2. Glad you enjoyed it!! I hope it wasn't like too hard or anything! I think I may have overcooked it a little!
