Piña colada cupcakes

It's been awhile since my last update, huh? The last month or so has been relatively hectic - finishing up crazy class projects, figuring out what I'm actually doing in lab, and attempting to study for my grad school qualification exams. Despite all of this, I still managed to find time to bake at least once a week, but just wasn't able to find time (or motivation) to post any of the recipes.

Blueberries and cream cupcakes

I can (hesitatingly) say now that spring is finally, finally here! At last, it's warm enough for me to run along the Charles in the morning and for me to ride my bike into work. Another plus with the warmer weather is better produce - meaning better fruits and vegetables for me to cook and bake with!

Oatmeal raisin peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

The students from my department put on a talent show this week, and as my talent, I entered six dozen baked goods for everyone to taste. Not really a performance talent, but no one in the audience was complaining!

Triple chocolate coconut cupcakes (for Easter!)

So the month of March just slipped by, didn't it? Between school, life, and lab, I did manage to find plenty of time to bake, but unfortunately never got around to documenting it into this blog. It's a shame because I really wanted to show off the MIT beaver cake pops I made for recruitment weekend, the ginger apple pear pie I made for Pi Day, and the Irish Car Bomb cupcakes I made for St. Patrick's Day, but it didn't make sense to post them after the relevant holiday was long over.

Cinnamon Nutella muffins

"What's the difference between a cupcake and a muffin?"

That was the question we mused over as we munched on these little pastries. The general consensus was that cupcakes are sweeter than muffins. Also, that cupcakes were more cake-like and muffins were more bread-like (and could be used for savory flavors as well). These muffins though, were quite sweet as they were pretty thoroughly dunked in cinnamon sugar and filled with Nutella.
