Some of the best recipes come about through serendipitous mistakes. Orangette set out to make a malted chocolate cupcake, but after one failed attempt, she wound up making a classic chocolate cupcake with malted icing, resulting in a flavor combination that “can be slurped through a straw.”

The addition of green garlic sends this soup into the seasonal stratosphere, and seems to us like a creative replacement for traditional side dishes like creamed spinach.
