Apple Sauce Cupcakes


I've been doing this blog now for almost one year.  I know.  A 130ish posts in and still going strong.  I don't know how many people actually read the blog or just drop by for a quick peak but I appreciate every single viewing.  I got some cool information the other day.
Here's the thing.  My BFF KT has just started her own blog.  She is dealing with the healthcare system in a big way after discovering a BCC (Basal Cell Carcinoma) on her back.  Sometimes the healthcare system, even in Canada, can be challenging.  So as a young, technologically savvy woman with lots to say to encourage others through something similar... She has started a blog.  Well, I found out that a friend of hers was reading her blog and then linked to my blog.  He is a young priest who has just started  at a parish in Ontario.  He used to run and bike quite avidly.  In fact, I distinctly remember having conversation with him just a short time ago about winter biking.  Well, as a result of years of seminary and then starting up in a new parish he has gotten out of the biking/running habit.  It seems that after reading my blog about all my stupid escapades around preparing for the half marathon, running and biking to work, kissing pavement on occasion and the lot, he has gotten inspired to get back to doing it himself again!

Now that is something that I hadn't expected.  Ok, maybe once in a while you might crack a smile at some of the dumb crap that I write about, once in a while you might look at a picture and think, 'That looks kinda good, I'm gonna try it' but I never expected that by writing a food blog I might inspire someone to get back to working it out!  I'm flattered and kinda on a high because of it right now.  You just never know what sharing your crap will do...


Cupcakes - yeah.  I just read a great post from Dana Treat about these incredible sounding cupcakes - no those I gotta try (and I told her so).  These ones, they're not gonna change your life or anything, but you know what?  They are really kinda nice with a cuppa on a fall afternoon, especially if you've just done a little working it out ;-)

Awww... Thanks
@ Melissa - I use Demerara or Demerara 'style' if I can't find the real thing ;-)
