Raspberry Filled Cupcakes with White Chocolate Buttercream

These are luscious in the best possible way! Perfect with pink sprinkles for Valentines, but just as good anytime!!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Valentine’s Day is often thought of as the day we celebrate our sweetheart. Flowers, chocolate, cards and cupcakes are all appropriate. Yeah, see how I worked that Cupcake in? Slick, huh? In my defense, this is a Raspberry Filled Cupcake topped with Carlee’s White Chocolate Buttercream. It’s not to be missed.

Grandma’s Applesauce Cupcakes

Very simple and so good - perfect for fall (or anytime!!)

Do you have old family recipes that just take you back to childhood? Maybe it’s a photo, maybe it’s the first whiff of them baking in the oven, or maybe it’s that first bite? This is one of those for me…my Grandma Irene’s Applesauce Cupcakes. I’d guess these date back to the 1930’s, at least.
