Food Friday: Devils Food Cupcakes and Peanut Butter Icing

These were a special request from J.  She knows you don’t have to ask me twice to make something that involves peanut butter.

The cupcakes are plain, old devils food cake mix.  I have no shame about that.  They are just a vessel for the icing. You can find the recipe here.  The cupcakes in the recipe are good, but I didn’t have buttermilk handy.  So I used the mix and then prepared the peanut butter icing.  Be forewarned:  it is ADDICTIVE!  And it makes more than you really need.  So have fun figuring out other things around the house that you can frost with peanut butter (use your imagination!).

I packed up some for J and kept the rest for us.  Now, what to do with the rest of the icing!  ; )

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
