About Healthy Cupcake

Hi! My name is Melissa, aka The Healthy Cupcake, and welcome to my blog =)

I am a 25 year old Jersey girl who now resides in San Diego lives in southern New Jersey with my boyfriend, Shane.  

I'm the proud mommy of two kitty cats, Daisy and Princess.

 I LOVE all things cupcake.

I love to bake and someday soon want to take a cake decorating class.  I read books and practice, but I think the hands on experience of a class would really improve my skills.

 When cooking, I like to take recipes and improvise.  Sometimes it turns out delicious, other times I resort to eating a back up dinner.  Either way, I am having fun learning my way around the kitchen.

 I am obsessed with peanut butter, sweet potatoes, ketchup, ice cream sandwiches and salads the size of my head.

In NJ I had a bad I currently have a Dunkin' Donuts *iced* coffee habit.

I love running and seriously get runner's high every time I cross a finish line.  I am not fast, but I'm working on it ;)

I am a vegetarian, do not drink milk, and in general limit my dairy consumption.

I started The Healthy Cupcake for a few reasons:
  • I had read healthy living blogs for a few months and wanted to join in on the conversation
  • share my passion for running and an active lifestyle
  • keep track of recipes and have the courage to try new ones
  • share my adventures in San Diego
  • document 2011; I can tell it's gonna be a good one :)

Thanks for reading!
