I guess that you could say that I am a bit of an old soul and always have been. I tend to enjoy doing ‘older’ things…gardening, playing cards, watching TV in my rocker recliner, perusing magazines, looking at recipes, etc. Heck, I’m even a decade long member of the local Senior Centre, believe it or not. A ‘non-senior, senior’ member that is; after all, I’m a ways off yet from officially joining the aged 55+ group. (And for the record, as I strangely feel the need to justify this a tad more, I joined the Centre in part because of their new, barely frequented gym and awesome yoga classes. Then again, I have been known to attend a few dinners there as well. Anyway, I am digressing...). I think my list of senior tendencies may be a result of my having been the youngest and only girl in my family, leaving me to find ways to fill my time and often, that was amongst adults.
Well, today as I was partaking in some of my ‘old soul’ activities of flipping through one of my favourite, easy-to-read somewhat mindless, but enjoyable-for-that-reason magazines, I came across this recipe. (I did mention that I like looking at recipes, didn’t I?). In addition to the cupcakes being cute (these bunnies are super cute!)) and sweet, I couldn’t help but notice the title. Take a look….
Enticing, right? Right. I mean, I would certainly make and eat them. Kids would go crazy for them, that’s for sure. And, they would be perfect for Easter, of course. Now, here’s the thing…if you Pause for a second and take a read through the recipe’s ingredients, I wonder if you will notice a bit of irony, as did I. While I have nothing against sugary treats, I’m not exactly sure that one could tout these as, “Hip-Hop-Healthy”. ‘Hip-Hop-Hyper’, maybe…but healthy might be a bit of a stretch. Just to be sure, however, I best test them out. I mean, I could just be having a ‘senior’ moment:-). I’ll keep you posted.
