Julie and Julia Challenge

Last weekend, I made Pasta Puttanesca from 125 Best Vegan Recipes.  I did not care much for this dish and I don't know why.  I like all of the ingredients and they go together normally, but I didn't care for them in this configuration.  The leftovers went to the dogs, they didn't even like it much.  They eventually ate it, but it sat in the bowls for a couple of hours before they ate it all.   Needless to say, I will NOT be making this one again.



This week, I did not follow the challenge "rules" and make something from 125 book.  I wanted to make cupcakes for a friend at work whose house got broken into Friday.  I used the "My Favorite Cupcakes" recipe from Alicia Silverstone's wonderful book, The Kind Diet.  As they were a gift, I felt obligated to taste one (or four) for quality control.  They are delicious!  And the frosting... OMG! I will definitely be making these again.  As a bonus, they were very easy to make!  Anyhow, I hope Fran likes her "You-were-robbed-and-that-sucks" Cupcakes, which is my name for them.
