This is really late...

..But it would be a shame not to post it.  Better late then never, right?  This is my uber-belated Father's Day post, but I hope you enjoy it!  

All right.  For brunch, I made french omelette's and sausage, and my sister made some tasty, delicious home fries.  For my dad, I filled his omelet with mushrooms, bell pepper, and cheddar cheese.  Me and my sister had the same, and my mom had an egg pancake.

For dinner, I made a Japanese feast.  I made white rice, tempura eggplant, mushrooms, bell pepper, and zucchini.  For the rest of the family, I made sweet and sour tempura chicken with carrots, onion, bell pepper, and pineapple. 

For dessert, I made key lime cupcakes using a recipe that I found at Bon Appetit.  The recipe in from the Buttersweet Bakery in Atlanta, and the recipe is really good.  For the frosting, I made a buttercream rather than the cream cheese frosting that they gave.  Oh, in the cupcakes, I added about 4 tablespoons of key lime juice, and they still tasted pretty buttery...So I would add about 1/3 cup of key lime juice next time.  Also, you should reduce the oven heat by about 5 degrees, and cook them for about 15 minutes.  When I piped the frosting on, I added a littlr key lime lice.  Aren't they just the cutest?


  1. This key lime cupcake recipe is my new favorite! You should make some for me right this minute.

  2. All of the food looks super yummy. I love how pretty the cupcakes came out!
