Pumpkin Chili and Chocolate Cake
Today was a grey, drizzly day that got me in the mood for some serious comfort foods. I made this delicious pumpkin chili which I based off of this recipe. Mine is not fat free because I added a good amount of olive oil to cook the vegetables. I also used pumpkin instead of butternut squash. This chili is probably the best I've ever had. It's so flavorful and hearty.
I've been wanting a chocolate cake for the longest time! Now I am having it! I made this basic chocolate cake with a basic chocolate buttercream frosting. You can find a basic buttercream frosting recipe here. Just add 1/2 cup cocoa powder to it. I was going to make a layered cake but I got lazy.
Super moist and chocolatey. I'm a happy girl.
