Love Drunk Cupcakes

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I put together a “lovely” little treat for you and whoever you’re spending this upcoming Tuesday with. My coworkers and family members are the ones getting to devour these awesome cupcakes this week! But of course, these cupcakes were inspired by the holiday.

If you’ve ever been in love, it gets you all jittery and excited, and sometimes you feel drunk….on love. Or maybe, you’ve just eaten these bad boys. With a kick of coffee and a spike of Bailey’s, these are sure to get you going!

Love Drunk Cupcakes

Cake Ingredients:

1 stick of butter

1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup water

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp instant coffee

***You can find the frosting recipe here.

1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter, yogurt and sugar together.

2.) Add the eggs one at a time. Mix in the water and vanilla.

3.) Gradually mix in the dry ingredients.

4.) Fill slightly greased cupcake trays about 1/3 of the way up.

5.) Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

Filling Ingredients:

Use about 1/3 of the Bailey’s frosting recipe and mix in between 1/2 tsp and 1 tsp of instant coffee (depending on how strong you want the coffee flavor).

1.) After the cupcakes cool, scoop out the center with a melon baller or a teaspoon. Fill the cupcakes with the Bailey’s coffee filling.

2.) If the pieces are still intact, put the scooped out cake on top of the filling.

Frost with the rest of the Bailey’s frosting! If you want, you can melt down white chocolate, dye it red or pink, and pipe out little hearts to sit on top!

Enjoy the drunken love!


Oh, sick days. Apparently, I’d rather work.

Generally, my sick days involve endless napping and movie marathons.

Not today.

Today’s activities included the inability to sleep, talk, or move, and the switch over to WordPress. Not to mention, I finished traffic school, because I can be real dumb and ignore speed limit signs.

Anyway, here’s the new site. And now I have  a Facebook page, if you’d like to “like” me….which I know you do……

I think I’ll try to go eat some soup and NOT die now.

So fed up.

I AM NOT YOUR EFFING MAID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I did 3 hours and 45 minutes of housework today because pseudo-family left the house a mess and made me iron a ton of clothes and duvet covers on top of my normal housework (uhhh everything that could possibly be done in the house). And now, I apparently have the rest of the day off. Umm okay? So no kids? Great..it’s not like I’m your au pair or anything. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I am so fed up with these people.

I even took photos of the house today so that I can show them if they want some sort of proof when I talk to them about it. Ughhh. Rant complete.

It’s October :)

22 more days. And then I’m free. Wonderful!

I don’t even have that much to say in this post, other than that I am feeling much better today. Still not perfect, but my throat no longer feels like its being knifed. Hopefully, it’ll all be gone within the next few days. That would be nice.

Anyway, Happy October!

And it’s official…

Bum-ba-da-da-dum-bum-bum!

I am leaving Germany on Oct. 23rd and am not coming back for a long, long time. There have been some unfortunate situations in my pseudo-family and for my own sanity, I must get the hell out. So yeah. I’m getting the hell out. Yes!

I will be spending a bit in Rome and then a bit in England, arriving back in the US before Thanksgiving. Woot woot!

Look at this bug that was sleeping on my counter today…I seriously tried getting it to move by pounding the area surrounding it and it would not move! Crazy looking, right?

Let’s have a slight bitchfest.

Trip to Roma booked 🙂 Perfetto. *Oct. 23-30th*

Stressful past few days…hopefully, things will improve in the near future..otherwise, there may be some peace-ing out on my part. We shall see. Perhaps I will have a talk with the pseudo-parents. Good thing I went out last night to get away from it a little bit. Jumbo drinks and yummy pretend-Mexican food at Enchiladas were a pretty decent cure. It’s also real good to know that there is a brothel across from that restaurant. So necessary. Except not.

Anyway, hopefully I’ll get a freakin’ phone soon. Email, skype, and facebook are not cutting it.

I need to do some laundry and I cannot figure out this washing machine for the life of me. I need to learn some German stat because it’s hindering my life here, apparently. I can’t even have clean clothes. How is that fair? Oh yeah..it isn’t. But I guess that’s my fault for coming over here with no knowledge whatsoever. Meh. Oh well.

Mmmm spaghetti for dessert!

Last night I met up with a few English speakers, which was really nice. Drinks and dinner…a relaxing and nice way to get acquainted. Then Liz and I went to get ice cream…that was interesting.

This is what I got–vanilla ice cream with strawberry sauce and white chocolate shavings:

YUM spaghetti! The other option was this:

But I thought it might have been a little much….in several ways. Too much ice cream and too much of a resemblance to an actual bratwurst.

Woof.
