Chocolate Italian Wedding Cupcakes with Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting

These cupcakes were born of necessity. Originally this batch of cupcakes was intended to be a full fledged cake, but due to my rather appalling laziness the pans I had intended to use were dirty when the urge to bake struck.  When I say dirty I mean stuck on, needing a good soak, burnt on sugar dirty.  I was forced to formulate a plan ‘B’ as I was not in the mood to wait until the pans were clean.  Digging through my pans...

Double Dark Chocolate Chunk Coconut Cookies

The last few days have been a roller coaster ride for me.

Coconut Mango Rice Pudding

What do you do when you have a mango approaching over-ripeness and a half a can of coconut milk? I don’t know about you, but I turn it into rice pudding!   Mango and coconut are a perfect flavor match.  I love, for example, chunks of ripe mango with some toasted coconut scattered over the top.  For a while I considered making a coconut pudding with mango chunks in it, but that seemed sort of boring.  That is when I considered a...
