Key Lime Cupcakes

So, I finally decided that I was ready to try to lose the last of my pregnancy weight.
I’ve been using one of those calorie counting apps on my phone, and it’s basically the dumbest thing ever.
That dumb app makes me question every tiny thing I could possibly eat.
Did you KNOW how many calories is in stuff? A LOT, that’s what. PLUS, it’s a lot of math, so I spend my day doing math and NOT eating.
The other day, Jon David was all, “Mom, these Nilla Wafers are stale,” and I was like, “they’re not stale, son…they’re Reduced Fat.”
Then he looked at them with pure contempt and replied, “Well…I feel sorry for YOU”.
I made these cupcakes the other day, so of course I had to eat one for quality control and all that.
OMG — stinking delicious. I am not even kidding, it’s all I thought about for hours. Finally, I ended up in the kitchen, harfing another cupcake down my face over the sink. Then I hated myself a little, but it was so good, I really didn’t hate myself THAT much.
I wish you could write blog calories off like you can ingredients for taxes.
I don’t know if you’re on a diet or whatever, but if you are, you need to make the darn cupcakes anyways. They are so perfectly tangy and limey with a graham cracker base and creamy cream cheese frosting with a hint of lime added. Seriously perfect.
These are so great for any cookout or Spring get together. Enjoy and have a happy Monday!!
