By July 24, 2010Featured Posts

I’ve been thinking for quite awhile that I wanted to start sharing some favorites with you all. And with Saturday’s Share Your Faves and the Deals of the Week over at It’s A Blog Party, of course, I just had to join in the fun!

I’ll be sharing a few of my favorites from Cupcake Tuesday, more great cupcake deals that I’ve seen this week, and some deals that you won’t want to miss out on.

Cupcake Lovers Unite!

The cupcakes on Cupcake Tuesday this week were simply amazing! I’ve chosen some of my favorites (which was really difficult), you bakers are blowing me away with your talent!

  1. One Determined Gardener created these beautiful Hollyhock Cupcakes
  2. Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Cone Cups were created by Cookies and Cups, AND she has a cool giveaway too (closes Sun, July 25)
  3. In case you missed them, my Raspberry Cupcakes are cool and easy for Summertime
  4. These Kalahari Raspberry Truffle Cupcakes were created by Moogie & Pap, she also has a Mystery Box Cupcake Challenge for you!
  5. I think these Lipstick Cupcakes would be so cute for a Sweet 16 Party, they were created by Confessions of a Cookbook Queen

Special News…

If you are a regular reader, you have probably noticed in the last few weeks that I’ve added some new affiliate programs. I’ve been blogging about a year and a half now, and am finally comfortable with what I’m doing and where Hoosier Homemade is in the big world of blogging. As I grow and become even more comfortable, I thought it would be a good idea to start monetizing my blogs. So, I’ve added a few affiliate programs, and I hope to also bring you the best deals for all your baking and cooking needs!

One of the companies that I have joined is Escalate Network! It’s FREE to join and they have some great opportunities.


They are offering these Diabetic Cookbooks for FREE, that I thought you might be interested in. It includes more than 60 recipes to help you manage your Diabetes.
