Okay, while the rest of the world is busy giving up their favorite things to keep their bikini bods all summer long, I’m happily munching on my favorite potato in it’s most perfect form.  And while I probably won’t share my plate of baked sweet potato fries, I’m willing to tell you how to makemore

lemon cupcakes

lemon cupcakes

Lemon cupcakes are one of my favorite sweet treats to make during the summer.  They’re easier and less involved than pies and tarts (no, I don’t want to cut cold butter into flour when it’s hotter in my apartment than it is outside, thank you!) and the citrus keeps them feeling fresh.
