Square Chocolate Cupcakes with Cream Filling

My cousin does a blog where every Friday he hosts Food Friday.  He's a great cook, and documents everything he does with great detail.  It inspired me, but only a little, so here's my recipe for Square Chocolate Cupcakes with Cream Filling, a couple of pics from a cell phone, and it's Thursday morning... close enough.


I bought my wife this cool Square Brownie Pan from Pampered Chef.  Her aunt sells Pampered Chef (she's actually one of the top national salespeople) so I got Kristen a couple things for Christmas.  I might do other food posts in the future, but then again, I might just eat the food and forget the blog.


If you're interested in picking up the Square Brownie Pan, it's 19 bucks.  Considering the price of most Pampered Chef items, it's one of the best values.  If you don't have a local rep, you can buy it through Cindy Inch.  The link I provided above gives her a commission.  (Of which, I'm sure I get nothing.)

Step One:  Buy yourself a brownie pan.  This one is cool, because it makes individual brownies or cupcakes.  If you like the corner pieces of brownies you'll love it.  You get four corners, and no middles.

Step Two:  Buy yourself a cupcake mix.  See, told you this was easy.  Hey, as you can see, I spent a whopping $0.79 on this one. The way I figure, that's only seven cents per brownie, unless you include the cost of the pan.  Crap, now my brownies are a buck and a half.  Please click on one of my ads at the right so I can pay for these brownies.


Steps Three through Five:  Read the instructions, slacker.  They're on the box.  The pictures below will walk you through it.


Step Six:  Break one of the brownies open and place it conveniently next to a brownie that isn't broken.  Take a picture and blog about it.  Post a picture on Pinterest and beg people to visit your blog and click on an ad.


That's how to make a bunch of money with seventy-nine cent cupcakes!  You're welcome.

Special thanks to Kristen Tweed who took these photographs.  Actually, she also mixed up the brownies.  Actually, she did pretty much everything and emailed me the pictures.  I, however, am completely responsible for the rambling.  I'm a talented writer, even with my mouth full of chocolate awesomeness.

Friday Funnies: Funny Retail Signs

Well, it's Friday so maybe you're planning to do a little shopping tonight. Watch carefully, and you might find some entertaining retail signage such as these. Here's a collection of funny retail signs from around the globe, mostly from the good old USA.

If you're planning to stay overnight, make sure you have a shilling and a few extra pence if you need to stable your horse. Here are the Rules of Inn.


After Christmas wrapping paper goes on sale, and so does Rapping paper, apparently.


Special offers are everywhere! You can get two drinks for the price of two! Don't worry, after four you won't notice how much you're spending anyhow.


Sometimes no caption is necessary.


But I'm so hot.  I'm sure everyone inside doesn't mind looking at me.


I didn't even bother going inside.  Clearly I would violate several of these store rules.


This was seen on a Dairy Queen drive through.  I always keep my secret ice cream money in my underwear.

More Realistic Anniversary Gift Traditions

New Anniversary Gifts Destined to become Traditional My wife and I have been married for 20 years today. Over the past 20 years I made efforts each year to observe the traditional anniversary gifts. Some of them are certainly more difficult than others, and many of them are hard to find gift worthy in the modern age.
Therefore, I offer you a modern take on anniversary gifts. How many of these will become traditional?
First Anniversary – The Ramen Noodle anniversary. Let’s face it, you blew $30,000 on the wedding, and your student loan debt hasn’t gone anywhere. Share a Cup O’ Noodles. Eat with chopsticks on the floor because you can’t yet afford a couch.
Second Anniversary – The Puppy Anniversary. She’s been looking at you with those eyes that say she wants to start a family, but you just bought a new couch. Get her a puppy instead.
Third Anniversary – The Kinky Lingerie Anniversary. Leather, silk or lace can re-fire the engines after a year of flannel pajamas that smell like the puppy,…

An open letter to Emmanuel Macron, President of France

Dear Pres. Macron,

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, has been invited for the celebration of Bastille Day, a day for celebrating democracy and independence of the French people.

As a citizen of the United States, I encourage you to revoke the invitation. Donald Trump does not represent the vast majority of the American people. As you have stated publicly, if the United States is not going to support science, you have offered US scientists the option of emigrating to France for the continuation of their studies on climate change.

Additionally, Donald Trump has made his nationalist and blatantly racist feelings known on multiple occasions, again something I know that you personally find offensive.

The majority of Americans would support the decision for France to revoke his invitation. Citizens of the United States need to take responsibility for removing their country from a position of influence on the world stage. Our previous president, Barack Obama, strived to be a …
