"Ice Cream" Cupcakes

This is not actually a bowl of ice cream, it just looks like it! :)

Nope... it's a delicious, and more durable, cupcake. I didn't know quite what to make of these when I saw them in the case in my local Whole Foods, other than I had to get one!! There is some serious buttercream on these guys.

And the chocolate shell was delicious ;)

No recipe this time, since it's more about the decoration, but I would love to see if anyone gets around to making some like this!! I also wanted to leave you all with something sweet, since I'm heading out on vacation for the next couple of weeks. I'm sure I'll have a bunch of food pics to share when I get back!! :)

Blueberry Margaritas

I've been on a summer vacation of sorts from blogging for a while, so I thought I'd jump back in with something refreshing :)

A. and I made some blueberry margaritas the other day, inspired by some strawberry and raspberry ones that we had at a local Mexican restaurant. They turned out to be pretty tasty!

We kept the ingredients simple: blueberries, lime juice, lemon juice, agave nectar, and teqila.

A. got this new gadget, the Magic Bullet, that pulverized the blueberries for us. It's a neat little thing, great for smoothies.

(Since we didn't really keep track of the ingredients, and the proportions are really a matter of taste, I'm just putting down the ingredient list!)

-Blueberries, washed and pureed
-Fresh lemon juice
-Fresh lime juice
-Agave nectar (you can also use honey or simple syrup)
-Tequila

Mix all ingredients together and serve over ice, with or without a salted rim. Relax and enjoy!
