Cinco de Mayo Pinata Cookies

Back in the beginning of May, my lovely sister Lauren shared a link to a recipe with me. It was for these adorable Cinco de Mayo Pinata Cookies that she discovered on Pinterest. Of course, being the baker that I am, I wanted to make them immediately. Cinco de Mayo was only 3 days away, which felt like plenty of time to put these together for my friends. Boy was I wrong!  Pinterest should come with a warning label:

Warning: Things on Pinterest are harder than they appear.

My Cinco de Mayo Pinata Cookies
These were the single most difficult thing I have ever attempted to make. But, I did it and my roommate Margaret loved them. So, I would consider this baking adventure a moderate success. Normally when I share a recipe, I type it out again for my readers to follow step-by-step without leaving my blog. Today I don't think that is necessary. I am going to share with you step-by-step the craziness that went through this blog. I would highly recommend you visit the original site for a more detailed look into exactly how this is supposed to be done. I'm just here to share my hilarious experience. :)

Brown Sugar Mini Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Brown Sugar Frosting

Brown Sugar Mini Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Brown Sugar Frosting
I am a terrible blogger. When I renewed my URL for 2 more years, I had no idea it was going to be this difficult to continue you writing, baking, and sharing pictures of tasty treats with all of you. Why is it so hard? Well, first of all, it is expensive. I need to start generating income from this blog through ads or something to help supplement the cost. Secondly, it's time-consuming. I baked on Saturday and took the pictures, which is all fine and dandy. But then finding the time in the week to sit down and write is hard. I sit at a computer 40 hours a week, and turning on my laptop at home takes more motivation than I have. Please note: it is May 2nd, and I am turning on my laptop for the first time since March 23rd when I had my IT Department clean up my computer for me. Yeah, it's pretty terrible. Anyway, the third and final reason for the long delay: my roommate had to give up sweets for 28 days and it was in the middle of Lent when people at work were staying away from desserts, so I felt like it would just be cruel to bake. Plus, I didn't want all of the leftovers to myself!

So, where does that bring me today? A few recipes behind (I even have a draft of something saved from January) and trying to catch up. I'll get back to those things I've made in the past couple of months eventually, but for now let's focus on the present. I'm back. I'm going to do my best to be here regularly!!! Sit back, relax, and enjoy the blog!
