Thank you to my mom for not only making me feel like the best cupcake baker ever known to the planet, but for allowing me to put these photos on the internet!  😉

 

Chocolate Pudding filled Chocolate Cupcake with Chocolate Fudge Icing

*I substituted Hershey’s Special Dark coco powder instead of the regular kind, as well as skim milk instead of whole milk.

I had SO much fun making these cupcakes and enjoyed getting a glimpse of what the incredibly talented bakers attempt throughout Cupcake Wars.  Not only were they fairly easy, but DELICIOUS!  The only downside was they were incredibly messy!  Worried that the cupcakes would be too chocolate-y, I was hesitant as my family began to eat them.  After trying them myself, we all agreed….PERFECTION! 😀

I want to be on Top Chef!


With all of my free time, I’ve watched almost every single show on television.  For some reason, I’ve really developed a liking for these cooking shows.  From Top Chef, to Cupcake Wars, to Chopped…I’m hooked!  So, I’ve started cooking and baking a lot more.  The other night I made this DELICIOUS Pecan-Glazed Salmon for my mom.  I didn’t realize how much I enjoyed cooking and baking and tasting my creations.  My favorite is what I like to call, “The face”.  It’s the face the person makes after they first bite into your food.  Rachel and my mom have been very nice and have made over the top faces of approval…even though Rachel doesn’t eat salmon.  So I think I found my new hobby! 🙂

Welcome to my television gossip blog! :D


Turning 21 less than six months ago seems like it would be a wonderful time, unfortunately due to a rare disease called Systemic Scleroderma that I’ve been battling with since I was 13, my health took a turn for the worst this winter and I’ve slowly gone from social butterfly dancing at the country western club and competing at the college level forensics speech and debate tournaments, to hospitalization after hospitalization.  I decided during winter break, when lung transplantation was discussed with multiple doctors, that I needed to take some time and focus on my health.  I dropped my classes, and have been taking it easy in 2011-hoping to get back to my old self soon.  So while I’ve been recovering, (or what I like to called hibernating) I have been watching SO much television and movies!  Wanting to go into entertainment or communications one day, my friend Jackie and I decided, what better way to both entertain people and do what I love then watch all my favorite shows and then blog about them.  So that’s what this blog is about.  When I see a new episode of a tv show, watch a new movie, or catch a glimpse of an interesting story or video, I’ll post it on here and rate it so you can decide if it’s worth your time by actually watching it. Hope you enjoy it and hope it entertains you 🙂
