Easy Peasy Chocolate Cupcakes

quite an earful

I love recipes that involve only a couple of steps. Especially when it comes to baking! This recipe was passed on to me by my mother, who is a terrific baker and would whip up the most extraordinary desserts in minutes! Icing on the cake right!? 🙂

She never really had the patience to spend a lot of time measuring or whipping or sieving and yet anything she made would taste so incredible. The ingredients would just come together so well! (I still dream of her Orange soufflé with those lovely delicious bits of orange rind. – coming up soon).

I, on the other hand, have always focused on the recipe, getting the exact measurements and making sure it looked exactly like it did in the book or photo and still struggle to get the taste right. With this one, I didn’t have to try too hard to get it to taste good. It is definitely…

If acting and comedy doesn’t work out, Kevin Hart could have one hell of a future as a dancer…or something like that. The bite-size funny man brought his humor and fancy footwork to “Dancing With The Stars” last night and just in case you couldn’t tell by our enthusiastic few sentences, he was a charm to watch.

Kevin, who was a celebrity guest judge in place of Len Goodman on last night’s episode, hit a dance number with Josh Gad to “Born To Hand Jive.” The duo received a rave score from the remaining judges.

Watch the entertaining clip, above.

Phelps, 29, also was charged with excessive speed and crossing double lane lines within the Fort McHenry Tunnel on I-95 in Baltimore, the Maryland Transportation Authority Police said. Police say he was driving 84 mph in a 45-mph zone.

“He was unable to perform satisfactorily a series of standard field sobriety tests,” the police statement said.

Phelps is the most decorated Olympian in history, with 22 medals from the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Olympics. He retired after the London Games, where he won four golds, but began training last fall and officially returned to competition in April. One of the reasons he returned to swimming, Phelps said this summer, was because it gave him a structured schedule. He repeatedly said he was bored in retirement.

“It’s good to have some structure back in my life,” Phelps said in July. “That’s how I’ve always been. That’s something I need. I was…

The Tinder Social Experiments on Fat Bias

Curves Become Her

Hello my loves,

Some of you must be aware of 2 videos on YouTube channel Simple Pickup that have caught the attention of the masses. In the first video, a girl posts her profile on dating website Tinder and arranges for a meetup with a few prospective fellows. The twist here is that she posts a regular picture of herself on her profile but then dons a fat suit (just typing that out makes me cringe with annoyance) for the meetups to see the reaction garnered from the guys. The second video is of a guy doing the same thing when he meets prospective girlfriends from Tinder.

If you have not watched the videos,
Here is the one with the girl and Here is the one with the guy. If you’d like, watch them before reading the rest of my post.

I don’t even know where to begin with what…
