Elijah is 6 months old!

A quick little update today - 

I just wanted to share, that Elijah is 6 months old today! Wow! The last 6 months have just flew by! 

Elijah is doing great. He eats a ton, and loves his fruits and veggies (the ones he has tried so far) and he just keep growing and growing! He's almost in the same size clothes as Seth... He rolls both ways, loves his new jumperoo, and is just an all around pretty happy baby unless he needs something. 

(See that awesome bib on the left? My mom made that for him! Possible future product for one of our shops!)

And, another thing about today's date.. In exactly one year, my youngest brother will be getting married! Yea, that makes me feel old too. But he found someone who is really great, and I am so happy for them both. :) 

Tomorrow is another Feature Friday, and I am working on getting some more blog posts going. I know things have been a bit slow around here. But did you check out the awesome Guest Blog Post we had yesterday? Those cupcakes sound pretty delicious! 

Have a great Thursday everyone!

Guest Post: Quick Ripe Apple Cupcakes You Can Bake With Your Kids!

Hey everyone!

Thank you Alicia for letting me spend some time over here on Own Something Awesome! My name’s Melissa and I run White Lily Cupcakes blog. I was so excited to get to help Alicia out and share with you guys an awesome cupcake. After reading this post about little Seth I knew the perfect recipe to share with you all, and one of my personal favorites!

This is a sweet, fruit filled cupcake is perfect for a fun afternoon with your favorite little guy or gal! The batter taste and feels just like sugar cookie dough but after they’re baked, these cupcakes are a light, crisp dessert that is sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.

Ripe Apple Cupcakes
3 Cups flour
2 Cups sugar
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Teaspoon salt
1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 ¼ Cup canola oil or cooking oil (I used vegetable oil)
2 Teaspoons vanilla
3 Medium Granny Smith apples,
Peeled and chopped
1 Cup chopped pecans or walnuts (I used walnuts but this is optional)

2 Bowls
2 Muffin Tins
24 Cupcake Liners
1 Wooden Spoon (or electric mixer)
1 Toothpick (To check cupcakes during baking)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two muffin pans with cupcake liners.

Chop the walnuts/pecans finely and the apples into small squares. I cored my apples and cut them into eight slices then cut the slices once down the middle of the slices and once down the sides before dicing.

Mix flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Make a well in the middle and set aside.
In a second bowl mix eggs, oil, vanilla, apple slices, and nuts.

Pour apple mixture into the first bowl with the flour mixture and combine until moistened. It will look more like sugar cookie dough here then cake batter. (It also taste like it!)

Fill cupcake liners ¾ of the way full with batter and bake for 22 minutes.

Always remember to check with a toothpick (or other thin sharp item) to make sure the batter is baked all the way through before removing from the oven!

After allowing the cupcake to cool (about 30 minutes) you can top them with a Cinnamon Cream Cheese frosting like I did or with Cool Whip topping. Now, Enjoy!

P.S. Cupcakes are best when shared! So take a picture of your awesome cupcakes and show it off on the White Lily Facebook page!

I hope you all enjoy these cupcakes! They are a little different than a traditional cupcake but they are super fun and, above all, super yummy!
