I don't remember when I first had red velvet, but I remember that it was love at first bite. Joe doesn't know this, but if/when we get married, I am going to fight HARD for red velvet cupcakes with chocolate and vanilla cream cheese frosting.
I went online one day looking for a red velvet cookie recipe. What I found was A LOT of recipes. And a lot of recipes that were really different from each other, so it was difficult to compare them and figure out which one I liked better. My main problem was that based on previous experience, Joe DOES NOT like red velvet (like I said earlier, there are a lot of thing the man doesn't like). I couldn't understand this, but I knew it was important for me to create something that he WOULD like, for obvious reasons (see previous paragraph). I took what I found and smashed it all into my own delicious, Joe-approved recipe.
