Key Lime Cupcakes

The winner of the cupcake courier this week is ChristyJan!! She not only told us that she loves Key Lime Cupcakes, but she shared the recipe, too!

Here is the recipe, directly from ChristyJan:

• 2 cups all purpose flour
• 1 1/2 cups sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 3/4 cup cold water
• 1/2 cup oil
• 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
• 7 large eggs, separated
• 2 teaspoons grated key lime rind
• 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cupcake pans with paper liners.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add shortening, milk, and vanilla. Beat 7 egg yolks in a separate bowl, and add to dry ingredients along with the water, oil, vanilla and key lime rind. Mix with mixer at medium speed while scraping bowl until well blended. (approximately 2 1/2 minutes)

In another large mixing bowl, combine egg whites and cream of tartar. Mix at high speed 2 to 2 1/2 minutes or until egg whites are stiff.

Carefully fold flour mixture into egg whites until just blended.

Pour cupcake batter into paper liners until 1/2 to 2/3 full.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until top springs back when touched lightly.

Cool cupcakes completely in pans then drizzle with key lime glaze.

To make key lime glaze combine 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon melted butter in a small mixing bowl. Stir in 2 - 3 tablespoons of key lime juice until slightly thin glaze consistency is reached. Drizzle over key lime cupcakes.

Don't they sound delightful?

Congratulations, ChristyJan, and thanks for the recipe! Enjoy your Cupcake Courier!

We Mommies will be posting more about this book shortly and we urge you to grab one for yourself and your children. See The Book Here

10 Things You Can Do For The Earth

Mom’s how many of you teach your children about saving our Earth? How many of you think about these issues yourself? We are all part of this world and when each and everyone of us takes steps to make a difference it can change the world! The Mommies here at Mommies United have some great tips and products for you and your children.

1. Turn off the water while your children and you brush your teeth.
2. Plant a tree, or five!
3. Carry your own water bottles.
4. Do conscious laundry. Don’t do it all at once, do your laundry while not in peak hours. This will also save you money.
5. Swap out those old light bulbs with compact florescent bulbs. They save energy and money.
6. Get rid of that pesky junk mail. Pull out the pre-paid stamped envelope in your junk mail, write “please remove” on the envelope and send it back to them – on their dime.
7. Turn off lights and unplug items you are not using.
8. Drive the speed limit. This may take longer but it will also save you in gas. And help reduce emissions.
9. Recycle! Teach your children what it is and what items to look for as recyclables. Make a fun craft project such as decorate bins and teach them to get involved.
10. Buy re-usable bags. And if you are only buying toilet paper and a few items don’t take those grocery bags from the store. It makes a difference.

My Book Fairy OOPSI

We found another creative solution to those little problems, the Oopsi! , responds to the dilemma of children dropping items while being strapped into their car seats. The Oopsi secures bottles, stuffed animals, books and toys to the car seat buckle with a Velcro closure. By pulling on the Oopsi, children are able to retrieve items themselves, without the help of the driver.

ONCE UPON A TIME, on a blustery Nebraska day, Laura Ludwin peeked into her toddler’s room. Cole was asleep, his face pressed against the books stacked in the corner of his crib. How could she keep her son’s favorite books off the mattress, she wondered, yet within easy reach when he woke? Laura searched stores, specialty catalogues, and Web sites, but found no magical solution. So, intent on creating her own magic, Laura visited a local fabric shop and put her sewing machine to work. There, BOOK FAIRY was born. The Tooth Fairy might be an occasional visitor, but the BOOK FAIRY visits each day and helps children develop a love of books.

Hope Joy BookHope . . . Joy (and a Few Little THOUGHTS)™ for Pregnant Teens

Hope... Joy book for Pregnant Teens is an inspirational book. This book also comes with a bracelet a tiny token to remember your strength!

About the Author:
RACHEL BRIGNONI became pregnant at the age of seventeen - a circumstance considered tragic in the eyes of society. It was the shame that crashed down upon her which could have shattered her hope for the future. Feeling broken at times but unwilling to accept hopelessness, she withstood the harsh judgment of others. During this journey she realized that her son was one of her greatest gifts and would teach her the value of her circumstance. Determined to create a legacy of success, she overcame many obstacles while raising her son as a young mom. Working several jobs to make ends meet, she went on to receive her Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from the University of Central Florida. She is currently a Human Resources Executive at a Fortune 100 company where she provides counsel on organizational effectiveness and employee-related issues. She is also Vice President of her own company which revitalizes impoverished homes in an effort to provide quality housing within communities. Her book Hope...Joy (and a Few Little THOUGHTS)™ for Pregnant Teens is the first in a series of books dedicated to inspiring parents and young adults to consciously create a life filled with hope and joy.

Poi Wear

Poi Wear is home of the awesome high chair bib!

The idea for the Hi-Chair Bib™ came out of this experience. Knowing that most children go through this messy stage, the owner of poi wear invented a "stage" appropriate full body bib that provides more clothing coverage (especially the lap and legs) for eaters in a high chair. She set out to make the Hi-Chair Bib™ not only a practical option, but a beautiful one as well. Our unique patented design gives parents (and aunties!) peace of mind all while providing a healthier, anxiety-free atmosphere for all!

Poi Wear™, named after her niece's mealtime mishaps, aims to offer upstyle gifts to savvy insiders (those who have been there, done that) who see not only the beauty of the products, but appreciate the wisdom and practicality beneath each creation.Give Poi Wear™ as a gift and pass on the wisdom!
