One of my favourite past times is making cupcakes for people I love, or even making them for people I don’t love and maybe just like a lot. I just really like making cupcakes.
Cupcakes are a bundle of tastilicious goodness.
Everybody loves a good cupcake. If you say you don’t, you are lying. There has to be some form of cupcake everyone loves, I bet I could find one for you. Cheesecakes, tarts, ice-cream, fruity, there are so many awesome cupcakes. But they usually contain ingredients may not be found in a “paleo” or “gluten-free” recipe.
Sure, you can find some great paleo and gluten-free cupcakes, but the cupcakes I am referring to are made with white flour and sweet fluffy icing sugar. The ones I usually make often can not be made using local ingredients. (Especially when you live in the middle of the Canadian prairies mid-January.)
I have a passion for cupcakes. But I also have a passion for paleo recipes, real foods, local foods and free-range meats, second-hand stores, recycling, mother nature, the universe, handmade soaps, and my granny’s home remedies for curing a cold.
Some would define me as part hippie. And although it may not be originally intended that way, I take it as a compliment. I embrace my inner hippie whenever I can. And then I head to the kitchen and make a kick-ass batch of cupcakes, lick the batter off the egg beaters, and cozy under my organic, handmade, blanket. (All the while deciding if I will be sharing my amazing cupcakes with above mentioned.)
Which sides of your personality seem to conflict and yet mesh so beautifully?
