when life hands you lemons...

Yesterday was unusually gloomy and I found myself in need of a little pick me up.

I saw this Martha Stewart recipe for Lemon Meringue Cupcakes on Cupcakes and Cashmere and decided it was the perfect evening project.

The lemon tastes summery and they are incredibly moist and delicious (if I do say so myself).  My apartment also smelled amazingly fresh and happy - mission accomplished!

PS: In case you're going to try them, I replaced the buttermilk with nonfat yogurt to make them a little bit healthier.
