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.
