Cuppies and Sammies

I don't have much time for this post, and I'll be visiting my boyfriend through Monday. But until then, I'll leave you with this tasty Reuben-Esque from Skinny Bitch in the Kitch:

It's basically a tempeh bacon reuben with the traditional sauerkraut, some melted Teese, and homemade Thousand Island dressing. Tasty, filling, skinny-ish.

And for dessert, have a Strawberry Cupcake from The Joy of Vegan Baking:

I made these spur-of-the-moment for Stephanie (a.k.a. Poopie Bitch's) birthday on Wednesday night. She texted me at noon that day to let me know it was her birthday! What's a friend to do with only a couple hours to spare? Make these tasty cupcakes, that's what. Even though it was VERY short notice, I couldn't let a birthday go by without sweets.

Everytime I see you make a SBitK recipe, I always have to ask myself "Why don't I use that cookbook more often?" I have no idea but your sammich looks so melty and amazing.

Cuppers!!! Love it!

Those cuppies were so freakin' awesome! Thanks again for making them for me - and for being the only person who showed up to my last minute get-together!

Next year, I'll let you know way in advance, so you can make me more cupcakes!

I think Reubens are my favorite sandwich! And the cupcake looks good, too. :)

What a pretty cupcake! I would be so intimidated to bake anything for her... I've drooled over her cakes many times on the PPK!

I love the look of that cupcake, especially the way the icing just drips over one side ever so slightly!
