Inspired By Vanilla

Orange Vanilla Bean Cupcake

Life is all about trying new things. How can you really enjoy yourself if don't widen your boundaries, and see whats out there? We're not saying we went out and traveled the world or anything, but we did try something new. Our story goes like this: we have always seen recipes that use vanilla pods, but we would just skip over them, trying to stay in our comfort zone. This week we said "NO! We are gonna try this!", and we did. We asked our mom to pick us up two vanilla pods. And when we found this recipe the following day, we new it was a sign.

Never Too Much Chocolate!

Chocolate Zucchini Cake
     Last weekend, our mom was desparate to get rid of some of the zucchini's she inherited from my uncle's garden, so we decided to help her out by making a chocolate zucchini cake. We were a little hesitant at first because we thought it would taste awfully dense and hard (unfortunately from past experiences)....boy were we wrong! This was...and were not exaggerating... the most moist and fluffy cake we've ever encountered! A special thank you goes out to our cousin Nicole (bakemeblush.blogspot.com) for snapping some of the best photo's of this exquisite cake (she too was drooling over this cake).
