Nope, my oatmeal raisin cookies demand their own texture, and one I can’t get from those other recipes. I start with the standard recipe on every can of Quaker oats and then start making it better.

Vanilla Cupcakes. Today marks my 24th year of life. Twenty-four seems like one of those unusual ages that's neither here nor there. I'm not old (though some days I may feel it), but I'm not so young anymore either.

Even so, every year when my special day rolls around, I'm not sure whether I feel old enough to embrace that extra number. Happy birthday to me.

You should know that the Explorers did not go easy on me. I learned that, for the most part, the Explorers wanted the Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake to be light and fluffy with an intense vanilla flavor. The recipe that I created for round 3 (the one that you read the quote about above) took all of the Explorers’ feedback into play. Here’s what some of the other Explorers had to say about the Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake Recipe: Products Related to The Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake Recipe. How to Make Valentine’s Day Marshmallow Pops.
