It has been for ever since I have had time to work/play on my blog. I apologize to my followers for not staying true to the site and updating regularly. Between the Fourth of July weekend and other organizational requirements I have been swamped. Fourth of July was a picnic/party at the house featuring coconut chicken kabobs, rubbed/BBQ’ed pork and devilled eggs. Those recipes will have to follow someday soon. BTW the party culminated with me catching a three foot rattlesnake, which was not harmed and released later farther from civilization, but I digress. One of the things keeping me away from the blog has been our work with a dog rescue, Doberman Pincher SOS. Dawn and I are board members and the official fund raisers for the rescue. Therefore we ended up helping to cater and organize the fundraiser at a local winery, Souza Family Vineyard, in Tehachapi, California. So today’s post is dedicated to that event. I made about four dozen cupcakes with an alcohol theme: Margarita, Coconut Rum, and Chocolate Port Cupcakes. Hopefully I can find a picture or two to post but I need to get something out there soon, people are clamoring for these recipes. The cupcakes were sold as part of the fundraiser and were a hit. BTW checkout the Souza family Winery link embedded in my blog.
