blood orange cupcakes with easy

Blood Orange Cupcakes with Easy Chocolate Ganache

Two of my recipes [Blood Orange Cupcakes with Easy Chocolate Ganache and Jamaican Curried Couscous Salad] are featured in the June/July issue of GRID, a Philly publication that inspires readers to create a more just, livable and sustainable city. They're part of my article titled "Vegan Fare from Near and Far." It explains how gourmands can still be good environmentalists by combining exotic ingredients with local fare.

Want the recipes? Philly residents can pick up the free magazine at countless locations across the city. Or you can access the recipes online.

Those look really good. I've never baked with blood oranges before though I really love them. Any other suggestions for frosting/topping them (I don't eat chocolate)?

Mona: Maybe plain ol' powdered sugar, or a drizzle of agave nectar? Or you could always make the icing with carob.
