Welcome to my blog, where I share my thoughts on food, travel, pop culture...just about anything. As for the blog name, it's a Seinfeld reference. If you don't get it, then this is probably not the blog for you.

Move Over, Martha

I saw a cupcake recipe in Martha Stewart Living that I just had to try.  But the cupcakes and icing looked way too complicated.  So, I decided to make my favorite chocolate cake recipe with vanilla buttercream frosting.  The thing I really wanted to try was the chocolate filigree hearts.  Of course, Martha had about 10 steps for this element.  I decided I could make it much simpler.  Forget chopping the chocolate squares - use chocolate chips.  Forget the double-boiler - use a bowl in the microwave.  And so I attempted the hearts, and I think they turned out really well!
