Mango Sticky Rice

Mango Sticky Rice

You know you’ve entered yuppie status when you can’t resist the Whole Foods one-day sale on champagne mangoes, and end up coming home with an entire crate.

Mango Sticky Rice

This happened last Friday, when I ran into Whole Foods for a “few things” (always) on my way home from work, and left with $9 of mangoes. Such a sucker.

But $9 for 14 mangoes! I was both delighted with the deal and in disbelief that I was buying a crate of something just because it was on sale. Also, have I really entered the phase of my life where I stock up on whole crates of expensive produce? I might be, like, 10 years too young for that. So many emotions brought on by these mangoes. Plus, how do you use up 14 mangoes?

Step 3: repeat.

I think that should just about cover it.

Fudgy Chocolate Beet Cake with Chocolate Avocado Frosting (Vegan + GF)

Where oh where do I even start this post when that big hunk of chocolate is staring me in the face?

That’s better. The worst kind of food blogging torture is trying to write a dessert post when you don’t have any left to eat. Actually… the worst food blogging torture might be dish duty. But writing about chocolate without eating chocolate is clearly high up on the list.

How about reading about chocolate without eating chocolate? Sorry about that. Not to interfere with your evening plans, but I have to say that this cake is worth rushing home after work to make. Dare I say it’s even worth skipping the gym to rush home and make? I have, on occasion, been known to cancel my evening exercise plans for a reeeeally good-looking chocolaty dessert recipe. Not that I think you would ever sink to that level… but if you would consider it, now should be the time.

Small Batch Chocolate Cupcakes with Goat Cheese Frosting

There is a time for whole grain flours, hiding vegetables in cakes, and nixing frosting in favor of a light dusting of powdered sugar.

Today is not that time.

And that’s because today is my 27th birthday!

Small Batch Chocolate Cupcakes with Goat Cheese Frosting So no raw, gluten-free, vegan desserts today. It’s my party, and I’ll eat goat cheese frosting if I want to.
