Taking time to stop and smell the roses isn't something that comes naturally to me. Maybe it's a result of having 2 busy teenagers to keep up with, but I am constantly having to remind myself to take time to appreciate my surroundings. There are whole days that I get so caught up in the busyness of life that I don't even take time to sit down and eat a meal. Of course there is never a lack of food in my kitchen - a benefit of working as a personal chef. I find myself doing a lot of snacking and tasting throughout the day and I just don't take the time to sit down and actually enjoy my food.
With that being said, this pink lemonade cupcake is meant to be savored and enjoyed - sitting down. Take a moment for yourself and sit down with this delicate pink lemonade delicacy. It truly is something that should be savored and appreciated slowly.
It should come as no surprise that the secret ingredient in my pink lemonade cupcake is...pink lemonade.
