This month I received the blog Beautiful Disasters written by an amazing young lady named Casey. She started this blog when she was just a teenager. I found that she has many interests that my own daughter's have. Playing H.S. and Club soccer, eating healthy and taking care of her body. She seems like a sweet gal. I actually seemed to have extra time this month and found 3 fairly simple recipes that I wanted to try so I just went ahead and did it. Made all three of them and I'm happy to say they were all three a success. Head over to her blog and show her some love.
Since I made 3 recipes I'll post the recipe for the first one and the links for the other 2. Please be sure to go visit those recipes as well. You won't be disappointed.
The first recipe I tried was for her Chocolate Layered Peanut Butter Cupcakes. My daughter was having some friends over to the house to play games so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to make them and not have any left in the house.

1 1/2 c. flour
1/3 c. baking cocoa
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1 c. water
1 Tbs. white vinegar

3/4 c. peanut butter
1/3 c. white sugar (I use organic cane sugar)
1/3 c. powdered sugar
1/4 c. peanut butter chips
1/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350. Line or grease 18 muffin cups. In a large bowl flour, cocoa, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Add oil, water, vinegar and vanilla to flour mixture. Stir just until smooth.
In a separate bowl beat egg, peanut butter, cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add powdered sugar and beat until creamy.
Spoon one tablespoon chocolate batter in to each cup. Spread 1 Tbs. peanut butter batter on top. Repeat layers, ending with Peanut butter layer. Sprinkle with peanut butter and chocolate chips.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes. Remove on to cooling rack.
These got rave reviews from all the kids who came over. They were so good and moist with wonderful flavor.
The second recipe I made was for chocolate avocado pudding. This was yummy and VERY rich! You will not know the avocado is there so give it a try.
The third recipe was for her White Wheat Batter Bread. This was super simple and tasted really yummy!
So three successful SRC recipes! It helped that the last two were super quick to make.
