I should be blogging about our recent lovely trip to Branson. We had a great time – seeing several shows and just hanging out (and we bought POP-TARTS! I LOVE Pop-Tarts!).
(Isn’t it interesting what a big difference that one little word makes?)
I cooked a lot of food this afternoon. French Onion Soup. Chicken Marsala. And Grain-Free Chocolate Cupcakes.
I have recently gotten several Paleo cookbooks from the library and have had fun perusing them. When I saw a recipe for Avocado Mocha Frosting in The Food Lovers Make It Paleo, I decided I needed to make it (as well as something the put the frosting on).
So I made the frosting, as well as their chocolate cupcakes. I am SO HAPPY with how they turned out. Mom thought they were a bit dense, and Drake wasn’t a big fan of the frosting, but I liked them. I will probably make a different frosting next time, as the coffee flavor isn’t that strong. It also tastes like the avocado pudding, so to me it tastes like pudding. I’ll try a butter-based frosting next time (I think). Or something slightly different.
But I love them. And I would recommend the recipe.
