V's Day

Im certainly not an avid Valentine's Day fan, but what started out as an okay-turned-bad-day ended up very very good! What can I say, my baking obsession kicked in and I couldn't fight the urge to use my newly acquired cupcake pan.

My roomie asked for some cupcakes and I quickly agreed to bake them for her.
Chocolate Buttermilk (Martha Stewart) Cupcakes were the choice of the night, and I must say they turned out very yummy!
Didn't make the frosting myself since I was quite busy cooking dinner for our "dinner date" (haha), but Betty Crocker came to the rescue.
For dinner, I made Honey-Mustard Chicken from Cuisine Tonight (one of the 2 food magazines that I couldn't keep my hands off of this morning)
Here's the recipe:

Honey-Mustard Chicken
  • 1/4 cup stone ground mustard
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • S & P to taste
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (5-6 oz. each)
  1. Preheat oven to 450 F
  2. Whisk mustard, honey, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Reserve 2 tbsp. for serving. Brush chicken with remaining dressing.
  3. Coat non-stick ovenproof pan with cooking spray and saute chicken over medium-low heat for 2 minutes on each side. Transfer pan to oven and cook until chicken is done, about 6-8 minutes.
  4. Remove pan from oven and serve chicken with scrapings and reserved dressing.
As a side dish, I made yummy Broccolini with Lemon Oil
I substituted lemon for lime though because I had no lemon, but it still turned out delicious.

Enjoy the pictures!! And be happy, V's day is almost over!!
