Yep, it's Summer.

I looked down at my temperature gauge in my car yesterday and this was what I saw. 
No wonder it felt so hot.

I've outdone myself.

 
Rasputin - Boney M. Just Dance 2. 
Last night.
My favorite Just Dance dance of them all. I beat my own high score. 
Check it.

Is my name that hard to spell?

People spell it wrong more often than not.
Is that weird?
I think it is.


This was a boxed lunch from Zupas. I actually get spellings like this one in particular quite often.
I will never understand...

Coconut Cupcakes and a Chocolate Cake

I don't particularly care for Ina Garten's show on the Food Network... like at all... but I have to admit - I love her recipe for coconut cupcakes. I've made them three different times now. (With only minor adaptations). I made these for our Memorial Day barbecue that my sister hosted.
 These are just pre-coconut topped.








I keep meaning to make my own recipes and then never do it... But last week, I finally tried making a cake that was all my own creation!

It turned out to be sort of like a brownie cake.


With a chocolate buttercream frosting.


There were a couple of problems. It was a little bit dry and the middle fell in on the top layer. It was very fragile.






Still, I thought it tasted pretty good! I will make a couple adjustments next time, but at least I finally tried it out.
