These Chocolate Cupcakes with Bourbon Buttercream are loaded with chocolatey goodness!  For the cupcakes, cocoa powder, chocolate chips and chocolate milk are used to create a moist, packed-full-of-chocolate flavour.  Then, the whole thing is topped with a bourbon spiked buttercream.  Can it get any better?  I don’t think so!  Plus, you can totally adapt for the kiddos by omitting the bourbon.

Oven Baked Fish Tacos with Smoky Chipotle Sauce

Hey everyone!  Happy Taco Tuesday!  Figured it was only fitting to bring you this delicious recipe today – Oven Baked Fish Tacos with Smoky Chipotle Sauce!

These tacos are unreal.  The sauce is the bomb dot com.  The think I could honestly tip the entire batch of sauce on my head & pour it into my pie hole and call it a day.  Seriously.  But that would be waaaay inappropriate and then there would  be  none left for the tacos and that would be a shame.
