the contestants on Top Chef often talk about their fondness of seasonal ingredients.
I have to say I'm also a big fan of seasonal fare.
like green Sno Balls for St. Patrick's Day.
and marshmallow bunnies and eggs for Easter.
in other news, I have been baking - chocolate cupcakes covered in a chocolate ganache glaze. it's the same recipe as the Martha chocolate cake from last week. it turned out tasty as a cake; dense like a cheesecake almost. hopefully the cupcake version is as tasty.
I made them for a co-worker's birthday, and also boxed up a few for her to take home. awesome cupcake box courtesy of my mom's pal Linda F. (thanks!)
