Texas Sheet Cupcakes

I've gotten requests (Jim) for Texas sheet cake for awhile now.

I had no idea what it was, so if you don't either, you're not alone.  I still am not sure.  I was oh-so disheartened when, out of the three or four people I know who actually from Texas, none of them knew either...

I think it boils down to a buttery chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.  Pecans are also usually incorporated somewhere on top.  From what I understand, it's usually it's an ugly-but-delicious single layer of sloppy but tasty cake, but I made cupcakes out of it.

Jim's not big on cupcakes...but after a bite he was a believer.  It's hard to describe the flavor if you haven't had it before.  It's more than just chocolate on chocolate, thought.  I feel like maybe it is to chocolate cake what yellow cake is to vanilla.  Likely more buttery.  That's usually the answer to most of life's mysteries: butter.  And more is always, always better.

Frosted Mocha Brownies

Somtimes you have a bad day.

And sometimes you have a string of bad days...the likes of which can only be cured by entire days devoted to nothing but nerdy movie marathons watched on the couch in your sweatpants while consuming a probably medically unsafe amount of root beer and chips and salsa, with spoonfuls of brownie batter generously peppered in throughout the day.

I've having those bad days.  A lot of them.  I could bore you with all the garbage happening at work, but it sounds whiney so I don't want to.  Instead, check out the more hilarious and food-related of my misadventures.
