It has been brought to my attention by several people that I have taken a long hiatus from blogging. I know, I think I was just recovering from completing my first year in graduate school. Post finals I haven't wanted to do much writing for some reason. I have, on the other hand, done some baking.
May 23 weekend the family came up for a visit to STL. Doug and Daniel got their first whirlwind tour of the town. We also took some time to celebrate Doug's birthday. To do so I made him some Guinness and Bailey's cupcakes that are to die for. I have made them again since then. The cupcakes are rich and so good! The Guinness batter has a very distinct chocolate-Guinness taste before you bake them. But when they come out of the oven it is a little less Guinness and a lot more chocolate! I highly recommend baking some of these.
I am also without internet right now so the blogging may continue to be patchy at best. Sorry folks!
