Asa Reads the Phone Directory

Asa's very picky about which books we read to him, but he picked the phone book to read to us. (Apparently that's what he thinks we enjoy?)

Strawberry Chocolate Cupcakes

These cupcakes were fantastic! Maggie and I made them for our Mother's Day dessert and we've got another keeper (right up there with Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes). I found the recipe over at TidyMom and we made just a few alterations. We wanted to add more strawberry so instead of only using it in the filling, we reduced the butter and water in the batter and added pureed strawberries (all fresh but frozen would work too). We also decreased the amount of cocoa powder in the frosting (simply out of a lack of cocoa powder but it tasted great!). The recipe uses a cake mix so it's a pretty quick dessert that tastes amazing (btw - Duncan Hines is the best cake mix). The strawberry cream tastes so light and fresh. Enjoy!
