Why don't you check best burgers in the world? I hope you leaved a vote

Thank you. :) ill check it out.

My first thought was 'What the heck is a vegan cupcake?' But I am assuming it has to do with the butter or milk. I had a look at the substitutions and I think it sounds great...

Yeah. Just no dairy products

When are you going to do the cantaloupe cake? :)

I'm playing around with a recipe. :) Coming soon

Looks delicious! I'll have to try this recipe for friends of ours who have lactose and egg allergies! (And for myself - lol)
Where do you find lime basil? Is it something you've grown yourself or have you found it in any grocery stores?

I grew it myself. I've never seen it in stores, but may try a hardware store that sells herb plant. You can use lime zest or juice instead.

Awesome! It sounds like a really good combination... I may have to go find some and add it to the herb garden. :)

It's lovely. So fragrant. I am going to try to steep it like a tea and see how it tastes.

That sounds delicious! Thanks for the recipe and video!

I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

Beautiful and Patriotic! Love them. I so wish I could eat one now!

Thanks. I forgot to take a photo before I ate it, so I had to screen shot from the video. Oops haha

That's great! I love that frosting!

Thanks. The frosting was a bit tricky to film, but i think it turned out just fine. :)

My main dish on today's post was not vegetarian but my appetizer was lacto/vegetarian 🍽

These cupcakes look amazing! Love that your recipes are always so easy to follow.

Happy Wednesday to you⭐️
