Recipe Roundup: November

I'm back with another hodge podge of recipes to share with you this month. There really isn't a theme to these recipes, just a bunch I've tried and loved and wanted to share. Hope you will give them a glance! 1.) Perfect Cupcake Frosting and Filling. This is kind of a strange frosting recipe-- you actually cook flour and milk first and use granulated sugar instead of confectioner's, but it's worth the hassle. When I make this (for birthday parties usually), I cook the flour/milk portion and refrigerate overnight. Then I make the frosting the day of but have that step done already so it's pretty quick. It's amazing-- super light, fluffy, and just the right amount of sweet. I am pretty sure I ate an entire bowl of it plain the last time I made it.

2.) Perfectly Chocolate Cupcakes. I will confess that I have actually never eaten this. I don't like chocolate cake, or much of chocolate anything, but my family (tiny ones included) rave about these.

3.) Chicken Tortilla Soup. I was alerted to this recipe by one of my best friends, who was on a year long search for the best chicken tortilla soup recipe. This is definitely it! I added chopped red and yellow pepper in with the onion because I had it in the fridge. It also makes a pretty big batch so expect leftovers (which reheat well!)

4) Homemade Larabars. I just recently started making these after visiting one of my BFF's from college. They are so stinking easy and delicious, and healthy too! We've tried the chocolate brownie, gingerbread, cappuccino, and oatmeal raisin cookie. My toddler asks for one for dessert, as you see her snitching during my photo session...

5.) Homemade Tortillas. This is an oldie, but still a goodie! I continue to regularly make tortillas from scratch over here. I have used combinations of white whole wheat flour and regular flour with success. I have also recently switched to using melted coconut oil instead of olive or canola oil with great results. I often double the batch and freeze a portion for a meal at a later time. You should absolutely try this! Except,  you may never go back to buying them.
