Since I'm actually not cooking too much this week - we're headed to a friend's house for dinner one night, then enjoying Hudson Restaurant Week on Wednesday and Friday (woo!) - here's a recipe that I unfortunately can't call my own, but that you'll definitely find on my kitchen table many nights during the year. It's Giada De Laurentiis' Baked Penne with Roasted Vegetables.

Chocolate & Hazelnut Coffee Cupcakes

This recipe has three flavors I love most: chocolate, hazelnut and coffee. When combined (in a cupcake!) they make for a delicious treat any day of the year!

Betty Crocker's vanilla topped with some crushed hazelnuts would do just fine!
