When my girlfriend Eleni told me she was making Red Velvet Cupcakes for Family Dinner, I immediately said count me in. Baking is definitely not my forte, but I'm always down to learn. Every Sunday night a group of us who live in the building get together to eat, drink and delay the inevitable - back to the grind Monday morning. We call it Family Dinner and it's become our little tradition. Using Paula Deen's recipe, our cupcakes were a big hit! (We did run out of red food coloring, that's why they look a tad pink.) Topped off with homemade cream cheese icing and pecans - delish! Let's just say we didn't hesitate licking the bowl.
