Confused by the title of this post? Well, there is a story behind it. This month’s Recipe Redux theme, “First Cooking Recollections,” inspired this recipe. For those of you who know me well, it probably isn’t news to you that I have loved cooking since I was little. I remember working alongside my Mom, who really taught me to feel comfortable following a recipe- and- how to fix one when things didn’t work out as planned. My food science classes during my dietetics training really refined my ability to alter recipes and understand how ingredients will interact with one another. My Mom has even noted that I have taught her a thing or two (a big feat in my eyes). Long story short, these delicious pop-in-your-mouth chocolate cupcakes are one of my first memories with my Mom in my favorite place (the kitchen). I “healthified” them, of course, for your eating pleasure!
