Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Tuesdays are my favorite day because I basically have a nice quiet afternoon to myself with no one here to nag me 🙂 so i usually make dinner for the family. So today I baked instead, obviously after spending way too much time on pinterest and seeing dessert after dessert. Yay.

The recipe is from http://www.thecakeblog.com/2011/11/pumpkin-cupcakes-recipe.html

I halved the recipe and then forgot that I halved the recipe and ended up using 3 eggs instead of 2. I tried to cancel that out by using 3/4 cup of milk. I also added some hazelnuts on half, just on the top. Hehe.

Fruit Salsa

This recipe I adapted from http://www.cookingchanneltv.com/recipes/kelsey-nixon/stone-fruit-salsa-with-cinnamon-chips-recipe/index.html. I made this as an appetizer, which I don’t really recommend because it was very sweet, especially with cinnamon pita chips to dip with. However, this is a really good snack or dessert for the summer time AND stone fruits are good for you 🙂 I used nectarines, peaches, plums, cherries, and apricots because yeah that is just what I happened to have on hand. Image

Mini-Raspberry Swirl Cheesecakes

Sorry this is not the most artistic looking picture, but these are amazing. My roomate who claims to not be a ‘dessert guy’ said that these were the best dessert he ever had. I even used light cream cheese. Perfect dessert for your valentine or to bring to any party. Love.

I substituted the cream cheese with philadelphia 1/3 fat cream cheese and they still were yum!
