Better Homes and Gardens!!! (I’m Just a Bit Excited)

Better Homes and Gardens!!! (I’m Just a Bit Excited)

Hi, I'm Stef! Welcome to my kitchen, home to over 1000 recipes! Join me on my quest to push baking boundaries and live creatively both in and out of the kitchen.
Happy exploring!

I opened my mailbox today to find a nondescript large white envelope.  Inside, I found a Better Homes and Gardens Special Interest Publication with Cupcake Project not only featured but even highlighted in the table of contents.  I did what I always do when I get news like this: jump around for a minute, then calm down and read, then jump, then read again, then think about the order in which I would share the news.

I’ve known that I would be in Better Homes and Gardens (I like saying the name of the magazine) for a while – they interviewed me and asked for photos.  But, I didn’t realize how big the spread would be.  They used several of Jonathan’s photos (including one of me that is cut off in the photo above), answers to seven interview questions (but who’s counting?), and the recipe for my beer cheese cupcakes with bacon cheddar cream cheese frosting.  The photo of the cupcake on the right page was taken by one of their staff photographers after they made my cupcakes in the Better Homes and Gardens test kitchen.  So cool!

The magazine should be on newsstands soon and it will stay there through June.  It’s a worthwhile read (not just the part about me).  While some magazines are all fluff and ads, this one is filled with tons of unique and appealing recipes, baking tips, and mouth-watering photos.  There’s also a profile on fellow cupcake bloggers Cupcakes Take the Cake!  Get thee a copy!

    Good job, Stef! Just want to clarify that this is a special interest publication put out by Better Homes and Gardens (it will not appear in the monthly magazine). So check your newsstands at grocery stores (and Sam’s Club, Wal-Mart, Target, and Kroger’s) starting tomorrow, March 15!
