At the weekend most of us who are lucky enough not to have to work generally have more time to spend in the kitchen.  In our house, I regularly use Saturday or Sunday afternoons to prepare for the week ahead – sometimes a batch of chili, or a vat of soup for weekday lunches.  However, sometimes I swap the practical for the indulgent, and I take a bit of time out to prepare something extra special.

On my to-do-list for this weekend are these beautiful looking cupcakes from ‘Gourmet Mom-on-the-Go’.  Not only do they look exquisite, the flavor combinations sound delicious: dark, rich chocolate; spicy, warm chili; sweet, fragrant vanilla.  I wonder how many I will have left come Sunday evening…
