I am trying to get into the habit of a weekly In the Kitchen post as I spend a fair amount of time cooking. I love trying out new recipes. I usually do a new recipe at least once a week. Fortunately my family and neighbors do not mind being guinea pigs (AKA: taste testers).
My first test recipe was to help me use up some egg yolks. I saw a recipe for Chocolate Pudding Popsicles from The Prudent Homemaker. I only had two egg yolks, but it was an easy recipe adjustment. I have not eaten one yet. (It has been much too cold for eating popsicles.) I did try a small bowl of the leftover pudding which was delicious!! I have faith that the popsicles will be just as yummy.
I wanted to make a cupcake recipe but did not have enough sour cream. I was browsing around for a recipe to try and stumbled across one for Churro Cupcakes from The BakerUpstairs. I got 18 cupcakes out of the recipe. I opted to freeze nine for later so I cut the frosting recipe in half. These were good too. W thought they tasted like cinnamon nut bread and refused to eat more than a bite of one. More for me! I shared some with my parents and got rave reviews. The frosting is wonderful and not too sweet.
