Don't get me wrong, I think food coloring is great and all in certain instances, but there's something about making food itself a really bright color that just seems weird to me. Maybe it's just me, but I'll always think that food that has been turned bright blue, red, green, or any color is weird. Sorry if this offends anyone.However. I figured that if I could somehow move past the whole bright red factor, there could be something really delicious about red velvet cupcakes...there had to be, there had to be SOMETHING that made them so popular.

My eight year old will spend 15 minutes looking over a food before trying it. I like to think of this as nature’s way of protecting her from her nut allergies – but I think I really just tell myself that in an attempt to not strangle her some days when she’s giving a perfectly good piece of food an in depth examination. This is one of my favorite recipes that is picky eater approved.
