What Do You Do In Your Spare Time?

People often ask me what I do in my spare time. Well, lately it's been involving EVERYTHING related to food. Typically it's recipe development stuff. It's usually always cooking food because I SUCK at baking.

Well, guess what folks?!?!

I baked a batch of red velvet cupcakes with homemade cream cheese frosting. I made a phone call or two and two of my friends showed up with doggie bag in tow.

They nodded and gave their approval - so this one is a keeper.

But, that's so fat of me. I sit and home and think of recipes. Isn't that just the fattest thing ever? Really - I could use my time on earth more wisely - but here I am thinking of recipes. Hilarious!

So, what do you do in your spare time?

Enjoy the pics and the recipe will be coming sooner or later!

Therapeutic Musings said...

My mom says this to me all the time "that's so fat of you!" Hahaha in my spare time I think about food, seriously. I don't think up recipes but I do search for them constantly!

redmenace said...

I guess you don't suck at baking! Congrats on the cupcakes. They look fabulous!

duodishes said...

Um. Actually. We recipe search and develop as well. But that's not really during free time. That's during the time we SHOULD be doing things like work...

Other than that, we counteract the fatty tenancies with some low impact physical activity like cooking.

So pretty and colourful! Your friends must have been thrilled.

WoW - they look great :o) My mother wanted a red velvet cake for the holidays and never got one - if I can come close to duplicating these - they will be a great surprise to add to her annual Mother's Day/Birthday dinner :o)

Lovebabz said...

God I may risk my life for a taste of those beautiful cupcakes.

Yes there are some things worth dying for...LOL!

Mizrepresent said...

Those look great! My daughter often whips up at holidays these same type of cupcakes and they are so good, even though i'm not a sweet freak, i do enjoy a good treat. What do i do in my spare time...well Blog of course!

Dawn said...

Those came out great. Next time you try them put some buttermilk in with the cream cheese frosting. I'm telling you it rocks.
I spend way too much of my spare time in food bloggerland this winter--it's too darn cold out!

jesse said...

I am SO jealous of your friends right now. In my spare time I look at food blogs like yours and drool over pics of food. Yep, very fat of me as well. =(

Bombchell said...

yummy!

kimberleyblue said...

I still have never tasted red velvet cake - I really should work on that!

Looking forward to seeing the recipe posted.

Marc @ NoRecipes said...

Your frosting looks crazy good. Get me spoon and I'd eat the whole bowl.

rashad said...

I watch sports and I write in my spare time, although if I had cupcakes like those at my disposal, I'd add that to my list as well

Snooty Primadona said...

Those cupcakes look amazing! I never make cupcakes any more, since the kids are grown & gone. However, I might just have to try them out. You know. So I can recommend them.

;-)

Maria said...

Great job on the cupcakes! They look super delicious!! I love the bright red color!

Bridgett said...

Red velvet cupcakes are just the perfect treat. Very impressive for someone who "sucks" at baking. Looks good to me!

Cynthia said...

You have too much energy. In my spare time, I just veg out in front of the tv! :)

RecipeGirl said...

I do bake all of the time and these look wonderful. Red Velvet is the BEST!!

VeggieGirl said...

I love baking in my spare time too :-) I LOVE RED VELVET TREATS!!

Erin said...

You cracked me up with your "that's so fat of me" comment in the post. I think about, talk about, prepare and eat food in my free time too! About once a week I tell my husband it's amazing that I don't weight 500 pounts, because I sure talk like I should :) I'm the type of person who's planning the next meal while eating the current one!

lisaiscooking said...

I love red velvet cupcakes! What's spare time? ;)

Super Dave Van Buren said...

Cupcakes look good. get ready for everyone to ask for some.. lol

OhioMom said...

Cooking and baking is only part of my life, although the one my family probably enjoys the most :)

Babs said...

I actually have to make some red velvet cupcakes this weekend so if you could get that recipe posted by Sunday morning that would be great.

In my spare time I blog and think of food. In fact, I do both in my not so spare time.

Debbie said...

Looks soo good!!! I would love one of those cupcakes right NOW!!!

chou said...

Darius--I had a friend decide to leave science in favor of becoming a pastry chef. Your question constantly haunted her, yet in the end it came down to the reality that she found joy in cooking. And the reality is, when you consider how many memories are linked up with food and friends, that you inevitably are bringing joy to others! Huzzah!

I cook and read and run. And read. :)

Foodycat said...

I've never had a red velvet cake! But I would love a bowl of the frosting and a spoon. Or maybe if I dipped slices of banana in it I could call it healthy?

Carmen said...

wow looks like great fun! and great food!

Sophie said...

These cupcakes look appetizing! I think your friends are lucky to have a friend that can cook amazingly!

Jeanne said...

Spare time?? LOL, you are a funny guy!

Those cupcakes look awesome!
