I remember posting this picture when the muffin pan arrived at the beginning of February with a note wondering what I'd make for Valentine's Day. I have scoured my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook posts but just can't find that post anywhere! Has it been lost in cyberspace or have I lost my mind? I received the Premium 12-Cup Silicone Muffin & Cupcake Baking Pan for free in exchange for my honest review. The set comes with the pan, liners, spatula, and brush.
Because Austin hung out at his friend's house Valentine's weekend I didn't bake anything. The following weekend I made German Chocolate cupcakes (no icing because Benny didn't want it) using applesauce instead of vegetable oil. The cake mix box didn't have any instructions as to how long to bake the cupcakes for using silicon, only glass or metal. So I had to guess. Two batches were made since the box says 24 cupcakes, with Dove dark chocolate hearts in the second batch.

What I liked about using a silicone pan is that the cupcakes didn't burn! In the metal pans when I'd use a liner whatever I'd make would be over baked, slightly burning all along the paper. So I had to switch to using the flour baking spray whenever I made anything. I'd love to continue with silicone so I can use those cute liners again and to see if everything comes out moist once I figure out the bake time difference.
Should you want to experience the joys of baking with the Premium 12-Cup Silicone Muffin & Cupcake Baking Pan you can pick one up on Amazon.
THURSDAY I did Kelly Coffey-Meyer's Split Sessions Lower Body Workout. I started reading through the GEX practical skills booklet.
FRIDAY I completed the final P90X3 makeup session with Dynamix. I read more of the practical skills.
SATURDAY I did Split Sessions Full Body Timesaver.
MONDAY I started a Killer week to March in like a lion with Jillian Michaels Killer Buns & Thighs Level 1. I answered the test questions from the practical skills booklet.
YESTERDAY I did Killer Body Upper Body, sticking with the 8 lb dumbbells. Benny asked to see the GEX materials but I don't think he looked at anything after I went to bed as they were still sitting where I left them on the table when I left this morning.
I weighed in last night up 7.2 lbs, back up to 156.6 lbs. I don't think this is all muscle so I'm going to have to go back to tracking my food again to see what's going on. Besides all the gassiness (which only seems to happen at home so I don't know what's up with that either) my pants are tighter at my hips and thighs.
TODAY I did Killer Body Core. The core-focused workouts I've done before were 15 minutes max. This was different working my core for 30 minutes. Right now I'm not feeling it but my arms are aching a bit from yesterday. What's your longest core-focused workout?
