Cracked Egg April Fool's Cupcakes // Tried and TastyDon’t you hate when you are baking and you open the carton of eggs and they are all cracked? I do too. April Fool’s! The sole purpose of making the Food Network Lemon Curd Recipe was for these ADORABLE Cracked Egg April Fool’s Cupcakes. I was first introduced to these cupcakes four years ago when my super cute friend made them for a get-together dinner and game night. I have been wanting to make them ever since. I mean, just look at them! I’m not really into pranks or jokes much but these are just too cute. I also feel that they are wildly appropriate for me since I spend the majority of my time in the kitchen. We also buy eggs by the dozens and dozens. 

Cracked Egg April Fool's Cupcakes // Tried and Tasty

There’s a couple of days before the big day for you to pull these together if you want to make them to play a joke on your friends, family, co-workers, or just because they are so darn cute. They are a little labor intensive I will warn you, but if you have the time they are totally worth it. I will say they are a little trippy to eat because they look so realistic. Have no fear. It’s just a white cupcake, a little frosting, some lemon curd and a white chocolate eggshell. Delicious right?

Fruit & Yogurt Breakfast Parfait with Honey Almond Granola // Tried and Tasty

I’m starting to sound like a broken record I’m sure, but seriously I LOVE breakfast. Yep. Love it. If the plethora of recipes I’ve got in the archives didn’t give it away, let me give you a few of my recent favorites. Quick & Easy Baked Egg Breakfast, Quick & Easy Cheesy Breakfast Sandwich, and my 5-Ingredient Lemon French Toast Recipe. None of those tickle your fancy? I’ve got 40+ recipes for you to chose from and there’s bound to be something you’ll fall in love with. As you’ve heard it over and over again many times, it’s so important to start your day with good nutrition. After an 8-hour fast essentially your body craves something in the morning. Whatever you do, make breakfast a priority and fuel your body. Fruit is an excellent way to help do that!

Fruit & Yogurt Breakfast Parfait with Honey Almond Granola // Tried and TastyWhen I made my Honey Almond Granola Recipe I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. What’s better than a parfait in the morning with your favorite fruit, some yogurt and the yummiest granola? Not much. This parfait is top notch in my book. I’ve had it almost every day for the last week and there’s no stopping me. Although, before too long I will need to incorporate something else in the rotation (I’ve snuck in a few of the Quick & Easy Baked Egg Breakfast cups here and there as well, they are a great make ahead to have for quick grab-n-go). If you don’t think you’ll like this granola (which you’d be crazy not to), then you also have several other favorites you’ll find here including: my Honey Apple GranolaCoconut Almond Granola, Coconut Butter Granola, or Easy Toss and Bake Granola!

Lemon Curd Filled Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream Frosting // Tried and Tasty When I made the Food Network Lemon Curd Recipe I knew there were a couple of things I for sure wanted to make. One of which was Lemon Curd Filled Cupcakes. I mean c’mon. Doesn’t a filled cupcake just sound delightful? Well I will be the first to tell you they are! I started with THE Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe as my base and went to work. I love cupcakes! They are the better version of cake because you can hold it in your hand and eat it! I’ve got a thing for citrus – you’ve also got to check out my Limeade Cupcakes, Lemonade Cupcakes and Raspberry Lemonade Cupcakes.

I couldn’t stop with just the lemon curd filling, I had to take it one step further and make a lemon buttercream frosting. I love how versatile buttercream frosting is. A few of my favorite recipes include my Vanilla ButtercreamPumpkin Buttercream, and Swiss Buttercream. These fabulous cupcakes are the perfect segway in to warmer weather! They are bright, fun, and most importantly delicious! Want to know how to fill a cupcake?

Quick & Easy Broiled Grapefruit // Tried and Tasty

I’m always on the lookout for a low-sugar snack or dessert to curb my sweet to. Boy do I have a serious sweet tooth. When I was at the grocery store the other day in the produce section the grapefruit caught my eye. I haven’t had a grapefruit in a really long time. I figured I’d pick one up and give it a whirl. Somehow I remembered seeing somewhere a broiled grapefruit. So I gave it a try. Loved it! It’s just a touch better than a raw grapefruit because the sugar is melted over the juicy flesh of the fruit. YUM!

Quick & Easy Broiled Grapefruit // Tried and TastyI know many can enjoy this fruit without any sugar. I can’t dig that. It’s way too tart for me. But add a little sprinkle of sugar and I’m golden. As you will see in this recipe, it doesn’t even have to be much, but just a little bit to take the edge off the tart. The other great thing is that this is wonderful warm right out from under the broiler or even after it has been chilled. Both ways are equally delicious. I like to have half now and save the other half for later. What a great guilt free treat right?

Food Network Lemon Curd Recipe // Tried and Tasty I have a pretty serious love for all things lemon. I love the tang, I love the tart, I love the way the flavor enhances anything it touches. In fact, we buy our lemons in bulk at Costco. At LEAST two bags a month (if not three). Most commonly we use them for our Lemonade Cleanse that we drink daily. But I also love to cook and bake with them. My favorite recipes include my Lemon Glazed Blueberry Scones, Lemon Pull-Aparts, and Lemonade Cupcakes to name a few. Not only do I love lemon anything I also LOVE the Food Network! Right? Who doesn’t? When I searched for a recipe I knew without a doubt that I wouldn’t be let down with this recipe from Ina Garten (more commonly known as The Barefoot Contessa)!

Food Network Lemon Curd Recipe // Tried and Tasty

I have some really fun recipes planned with this Food Network Lemon Curd Recipe! Well, I had to get past licking it off the spoon. You almost had to pry my away because it was so delicious. I figured, if it is this amazing alone, just imagine how wonderful it will be IN recipes!! I can’t wait to continue to find more fun things to do with this. What do you think? Anything special you’d like to see? Maybe with scones? Or what about on top of a cheesecake? Oh my! That sounds DELIGHTFUL!
