I know this aupair from Kenya, her name is Beatrice. Today is her birthday, so I've made her cupcakes; Brownie Cupcakes, from have cake, will travel! As much as I love zelinueh's blog and trust her recipes, I wasn't all together with her on these cupcakes. She called for raisins, but I thought, "Well that's not brownie-like," so I subbed in chocolate chips. It also calls for jam and a lot of lemon flavoring. I think that the jam idea was cool. Next time I'll probably use blueberry and not strawberry. If I make these babies again, I don't think I'll use any lemon at all because that made them too citrus-y and brownies can't be citrus-y. On first bite, though, I definately thought, "wow! brownie!" so, that was cool.

Pictured with the cupcakes is my apron that my friend Catherine got me. I try to use it whenever possible. I'd like to pimp it up with some ponies and anarchist pins in the future.
In other news, I FINALLY FOUND MY GRATEFUL DEAD FRISBEE!! My host father is re-arranging my room (more on that later) and when he was moving a big bookshelf with camping stuff, I saw it shoved in there. woo hoo! Folks, I have been in some serious frisbee-playing deprevation. We need to play soon.
