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.

Marvels of the Science: Rocks and Things

My kids have a science test today. We've been studying rocks and minerals, erosion and weathering, and other science-y geology stuff all week.

All that work, and we just should have done in Internet search. After all, everything on the Internet is factual when it comes to science.

Here's a perfect example, a quick documentary that teaches us everything we know about rocks and 2 minutes and 43 seconds.

Stretch your brains!

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,…

Donald Trump Hates Freedom of the Press, But Why?

Donald J Trump is challenging the concept of free press. He has publicly ridiculed ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, BBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, and many other news organizations. Some have called out his twitter rants as being distinctly fascist.
This past week on Meet the Press, John McCain, a Republican member of the U.S. Senate, while not mentioning Donald Trump specifically, called suppression of the press "how dictators get started". Freedom of the Press in the Constitution
Freedom of the Press isn't a new concept. Our founding fathers put it into the original Bill of Rights. Even in the 1789 they realized that a free press was essential for maintaining checks and balances to the power of government.

The Press in Colonial America
Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison understood the power and value of the press. But what, exactly, was the press in pre-Constitution America? In colonial America around 1760 there were only 24 new…
