Life is all about balance; the balance of chi, aka the vital energy that unites mind, body and spirit – the principal of Ying and Yang, where an imbalance will create catastrophe and plague. Sometimes too much of a good thing can create an imbalance. That is why I like to indulge now and then with a treat and to keep my body in harmony with a reward that tickles my taste buds.
I had the pleasure of attending a fall food festival in my town and was lucky enough to come across a wonderful cupcake stand with gluten free cupcakes baked by Gigi’s cupcakes. It was amazing: triple chocolate torte cupcakes – moist, fluffy, chocolatey, and best of all, gluten free. I savored each and every bite and felt fortunate to have been able to treat myself with such deliciousness. Best of all, it put my body and mind back in balance with this little reward. Now it’s got my mind ticking of how I can replicate such fluffiness in a gluten free cupcake. From this delicious cupcake a recipe will be born as this chocolatey goodness has inspired me to come up with my version of a delicious cupcake that promises to deliver such wonderful flavor and texture. Off to the kitchen!
