Guilty Pleasure Wednesday

I've never hated Jimmy Eat World, but I feel like I'm not supposed to like them. Is it that their singer is sort of a poor man's Ben Gibbard? Well too bad, I can't help it. This song crept into my head the other day and wanted to be heard, so here you go.

Speaking of guilt and sweetness, I have been having the urge for chocolate cupcakes. I don't particularly like cake, so it was going to be a challenge finding something worth my craving. I tried a recipe from this book, the cover of which always reminds me more of an egg than a cupcake.

They didn't turn out very big, but were satisfying. The icing is basically cream and melted bittersweet chocolate. One thing that made them so good is that there is no white sugar, just the far superior dark brown sugar. And they're not too sweet. Very British, as Kayla says.

Maybe guilty pleasures should become a regular theme around here?

I am going to have to check out that book. Domestic Goddess, huh? Well, I could try!

Love the colored dots on them.
