Strawberry Chocolate Cupcakes (1)

I find chocolate cake so much better than white/yellow cake. I guess its cuz people generally screw white/yellow cake up and chocolate is usually a safer bet. Chocolate is also, well, chocolate. And lez be honest I loooovvvaaaa me some chocolate.

And with V-DAY just around the corner, it was only natural I had chocolate on my mind. You do too, right?! Well, the truth is I always do, but this is a nice excuse to think about chocolate double the amount of time 😉

I felt like chocolate cake on Saturday, my mom walked into the kitchen saw me getting my flour out then walked in again and the cupcakes were coming out of the oven. This is a quick/easy recipe, that satisfies. I threw in mini chocolate chips in the batter, you know cuz it's Valentine's Day this week and all.

Strawberry Cream Frosting on top of these luscious chocolatey cupcakes. Hello, heaven! Seriously this frosting I could eat the whole damn bowl. I would make myself sick but I could do it, it's that good.

What are all y'all up to on V day? I am working, but I am excited about our specials, Fresh Sea Bass with a Mango Cream Sauce and Filet Mignon in a Rich Balsamic Glaze, damn I love food!!!
